"The National Science Foundation (NSF) has granted a funding of $818,433 for a blockchain-based project being developed at the University of California-San Diego. This project has been named ‘Open Science Chain’ (OSC) and is being led by Subhashini Sivagnanam, a software architect and a researcher, currently working with the Data Enabled Scientific Computing division at the San Diego Supercomputing Center. The Open Science Chain is proposed to be a platform based on Distributed Ledger Technology which would allow researchers to easily access as well as verify the data collected through various scientific experiments. The $800k funding will help the team working on the platform develop it to its full potential. The funding comes from the National Science Foundation, which has helped fund and provide federal resources to several research projects in the past. ..."
