In this article, I will expand on the types of scientific projects based on our platform, as well as their prospects and risks.
Due to the streamlined process of technological commercialization and their short period of their implementation, 90% of projects that successfully attract financing will be applied scientific developments. Firstly, because the attention of investors will be attracted by off-the-shelf technologies with a prototype model and technical documentation. And secondly, depending on the completion of their development, the guarantees and profitability for investors will be predictable.
When creating a smart contract, it will be possible to account for any technical or financial specifics of the developer (with the exception of legal ones, but we are waiting for the regulation of the cryptocurrency sector, which will surely take place), and our task is to create templates for such contracts for easy application to the scientific field. Over the years, legal and technical examples of agreements with the use of fiat currencies, examples of investment, joint development, or gratuitous support of scientific projects have piled up in Akademgorodok
. With the informational support of Technopark https://academpark.com
and Biotechnopark http://www.btp-nso.ru
, we have another advantage — with each new template, we will offer it for worldwide use, locally or regionally. This quite feasible task does not require huge funding or unique knowledge unlike nuclear physics, but the immediate benefits for and inclinations toward a revolutionary shift in the financing of science in these days of information society are obvious.
It is my conviction that in the last century, human society conjointly sought to colonize the Moon and explore Mars not only because of the Cold War. People have since ceased to be dreamers; instead, they demand new achievements in the zone of consumer comfort. Developed information technologies, virtual entertainment and comfortable living conditions (in most countries) tend to hinder bold and risky initiatives.
In ancient Greece, thinkers were very rich people not by merit, but by inheritance. Many current scholars — especially theorists — are forced to live at the expense of the state, which due to bureaucratic natures often kills unprotected theories or technology not registered in accordance with the state form. A friend of mine once told me: "Science is the satisfaction of one's own curiosity at the state's expense." Perhaps it sounds harsh, but what would we do without Giordano Bruno's curiosity?
