Dentacoin is an open-source, public, Ethereum-based, ERC-20 token, blockchain platform, governed by smart contracts, developed by the Dentacoin Foundation. The purpose of the platform is to support the dental community, by developing solutions, aimed at improving the quality of dental services, throughout the world.
The Dentacoin Foundation encompasses roughly 20 core team members and was founded by Prof. Dr. Dimitar Dimitrakiev, Philipp Grenzebach (Business Developer), and Jeremias Grenzebach (Core Developer) in February 2017, in the Netherlands.
The goal of the foundation and its product is the development of relevant tools for each market participant of the dental industry - from patient and dentist to laboratories and manufacturers. Entities using and implementing these tools are rewarded for their contribution with Dentacoin tokens, which can be later used for dental treatment payments, or purchase of dental products.
