The Open Science Network (OSN) will be a distributed research network using blockchain technology for an efficient, open and transparent transmission of information and value and a significant re-aligning of incentives. By applying this distributed technology and paradigm to science, we look to increase the quality and level of interactions between all actors in the scientific network and an evolution of the scientific research, funding and publishing cycle.
Aspects of the OSN solution will include: p2p interactions without any need for trust, centralized entities or information silos. Value flows in the network natively and consensus is built into the system.
The freedom to develop any type of complex interaction that we can think of between different independent agents, instant, and worldwide. The development of tools and implementations that allow the creation and governance of network agents, which can be adapted for the specific needs of each of the elements on the scientific ecosystem.
