Blockchain for Mathematics

Blockchain technology is built using mathematics. Blockchain is the intersection of many different fields, including economics, cryptography, game theory and more. All of these fields rely on mathematics. Blockchain technology can also be applied to solve some of the major problems within the mathematics industry today.

Problems Faced within Industry

Lack of Funding

Some mathematicians find it hard to receive funding or problems they are working on. These are problems that, if solved, could be breakthroughs in the field of mathematics. Without the funding necessary, these problems remain unsolved.

Peer-Review Publishing

Peer review publishing and research is the lifeblood of mathematics and academia in general. Unfortunately, many mathematicians working in industry do not have the opportunity to publish their work for peer review, due to confidentiality.

Lack of Breakthrough Developments

In many fields, standard procedures are maintained and sustained. There is not a lot of room for innovation or creativity.

Solution: Blockchain Technology

Sample Front Title

Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding

Blockchain can allow rapid and easy transfer of value. This means that anyone could crowd-fund a research idea that they could work on in the field of mathematics. If enough people are willing to support the mathematician, they can work without needing funding from traditional sources.
