US Government to Grant $800k to Blockchain Researchers

As reported, the U.S. government will help fund a distributed ledger platform being developed by researchers at the University of California-San Diego

The US government will support a distributed registry technology developed by employees of the University of California at San Diego, CoinDesk reports.

The researcher and software developer of the Computing Center's Computational Center with the San Diego supercomputer, Subhashini Sivagnanam, won a $ 818,433 National Science Foundation (NSF) grant for the development of an open scientific circuit (OSC) - a distributed registry, through which researchers can effectively access data, collected in the course of various scientific experiments, and verify them.

NSF is a scientific organization that helps to distribute federal resources in favor of various research initiatives. In recent years, it has supported several blockchain projects, including those that deal with various aspects of incentive mechanisms in cryptocurrencies and blockchain.

According to the available information, the latter project creates "a web-based cyberinfrastructure platform built using distributed ledger technologies that allows researchers to provide metadata and verification information about their scientific datasets and update this information as the datasets change and evolve over time in an auditable manner" .

In other words, the proposed network will be an up-to-date register of researchers' work, which will grow as new information is added to it. Thanks to this network, researchers will be able to trust the data with which they will have to work more.
