One of the leading cryptocurrencies, Dash, teams up with BlockCypher, a leading Blockchain Web Services (BWS) provider, in order to launch a grant program for startups and established companies seeking blockchain-based solutions in enterprises and new markets.

As reported, the chosen companies will receive funding for blockchain web services and hosting, consulting, project testing, and integration support.

The Dash Core Group has a history of providing support for businesses seeking to integrate Dash, but now we can do so in an official, mutually beneficial way,” Dash Core CEO Ryan Taylor said. “BlockCypher is a wonderful partner for Dash and has been instrumental in attracting new businesses to leverage our network. This program simply extends our support in a structured way to the numerous leads BlockCypher generates for the network.

One of the organizations that has already received grants is the Patientory Foundation, which is developing a blockchain for securely and efficiently recording patient data. Thus, they are integrating the Dash public blockchain with their private blockchain using BlockCypher’s APIs.

With BlockCypher web services and experience, the goal of this program is to seed projects in regions and use cases where blockchain technology has been underdeveloped,” BlockCypher head of growth Karen Hsu said. “This program is teaming up blockchain focused companies to encourage other companies to adopt blockchain technology. It also uniquely has structured phases towards commercialization.

The three companies plan to significantly disrupt the way healthcare payments are executed: using blockchains, healthcare providers will be able to settle medical bills faster and more securely, while patients can use BlockCypher web services to maintain Dash wallets and settle payments over the Dash network.
