Blockchain-Based Research Platform Dentavox Gains Momentum

According to a recent announcement, the newly-launched market research platform DentaVox has been gaining ground as an opinion source for the international dental health industry. In the five months since its inception, the Blockchain-based web application reports nearly 1,000,000 questions answered and a total of 78,439,853 D?ntacoin (DCN) tokens allocated to more than 5,000 registered users.

The DentaVox opinion platform is a tool created by the Netherlands-based Dentacoin Foundation. Dentacoin develops the first Blockchain solution for the global dental industry with the mission to improve dental health and allow for continuous communication and secure value exchange between all market participants within the dental industry. Numerous Blockchain-based tools and a common industry-specific cryptocurrency (Dentacoin, DCN) are created to serve this mission.

“The increasing interest in DentaVox, Trusted Review Platform and Dentacare is a positive indication that people are starting to realize the hidden value and the immense potential behind the Dentacoin concept,” said Klaus-Christian Werner, PhD, Industry Partner Acquisition Manager, Dentacoin. “It’s not about yet another cryptocurrency. The main purpose of Dentacoin is to create a global ecosystem for all participants in the dental industry where patients have a central place.”

People who sign up on DentaVox take questionnaires on various topics related to dental health, including: crowns, veneers, dentures, teeth grinding. The more questions answered, the more DCN tokens earned after completing a survey. The accumulated DCN amounts can either be stored in a Dentacoin wallet or used for the payment of dental services in certain dental practices across the world.

The next release of DentaVox will also offer a much wider variety of surveys organized in separate health and dental care related topics. Currently, registered users can choose from more than 20 surveys containing a varying number of questions and rewarded with the respective amount of DCN tokens. After filling out a given questionnaire, respondents can see some basic stats for each question. With the latest tweaks, these stats reports will be presented in a more visually comprehensible way. Users will enjoy a generally improved online experience both while navigating through the website and while taking a survey. 

The team behind DentaVox will also introduce a second, enhanced version of the market survey tool which will enable dental professionals, manufacturers and all interested parties to request custom surveys on topics that will help them both improve and expand their services or products.
