reBlock

Introducing our flagship product: reBlock, a better scientific study managment system powered by the Ethereum blockchain. Scientific advancement, previously held back by bureaucracy and secrecy, can be solved through open and distributed technology.

Research studies serve to validate strategies, treatments, and devices to prove they are beneficial to humans. They open the pathway for innovation and an understanding of new diseases or methods.

Yet, even with their importance to scientific advancement, less than 10% of them end up being published, even after extensive development, due to extreme costs. Unfortunately, innovation in the methods used to run these studies has stagnated, which costs trials $600,000–$8 million per day to manage data.

reBlock aims to cut down on these malicious costs and innovate this area. Check out the website to learn more, and see our future plans.

Frequently Asked Questions


How does your flagship product, reBlock, work?

reBlock is a decentralized clinical trials management platform built on the Ethereum blockchain. Essentially, it takes from users and uploads it to the blockchain while also being verified as accurate at the same time. Then, researchers can pull the data for their studies and even add more fields to those studies for better customizability, paying the user in the process. We have implemented the idea at reblock.tech, our fully functional site. There you can also find out more information about our product.

All of our development is managed on GitLab — check it out if you are interested!


Are you doing an ICO?

Due to the unclear legal framework for ICOs in the United States and the negative attitude that the wider crypto community has toward them, we are not planning on holding an ICO. However, we are engaged with standard other types of investment; if you are interested, please get in touch by emailing us at [email protected]


Can I trust high schoolers to run a company?

Of course!

Obviously, not every high schooler is able to devote themself to a project for a long time, much less a serious long-term company. However, don't underestimate us! We've been to and won several hackathons, and have extensive experience not just with programming, but also managing long-term development and marketing. Further, some of us have experience working with startups and in leadership positions, so we aren't entirely new to ths process. We're highly motivated and dedicated to this product, with a scheduled work week and a host of advisors to help us.

Further, we are also supported by professionals who have extensive experience in entrepreneurship and blockchain who truly believe in this idea.
