A startup launched this week in the US, Hayver, states it wants to incentivize behaviour of addicts to remain sober. The company created a software solution with flexible open architecture and cryptocurrency incentives.
Every day as a member logs into the application, a randomized utility decides whether he/she should be tested and the peer group notified. Selected members use urine screening cup and then the results are verified by one of the member’s “Circle of Support” partners. The recovery history is based on check-in rates, test compliance, results, etc.
Hayver also launched its own cryptocurrency as a reward to further encourage its clients be abstinent. The service offers peer-to-peer support, continuous peer-to-peer monitoring and assessment tools for home care relying clients.
According to Dr. John M. Carpenter, co-founder and chief medical officer of Hayver Corporation, physicians, therapists and counselors have acknowledged the potential of Hayver and decided to approve the implementation of the system.
