AMA question: Is quant planning to build a microsoft azure connector? And if so, does quant have had any talks/meetings with the id2020 project?
Hi Guys, in terms of connectors - I haven't heard the Tech Team reference the Azure connector yet. Hyperledger is already in though - it's part of the four connectors. That's not to say azure won't be in the next iteration. I can ask for more info on that. And Gilbert will join shortly.

Question(s):

@Loucineh Since the roadmap isn't update anymore, and we investors don't know exact dates. We cannot look for specific dates for what will be released. Could you clarify us when we see the open SDK and GoVerify to be launched? Also mentioned some months ago, September will be the month we see new exchanges and the fortune 500 company's. Are there any partnerships confirmed to be released in September? Same for exchanges ?

This may be a question familiar. But we don't need names or exact dates. Only will it be September, as said before?

Answer(s):

Sure. Our prioirity is the SDK and we've said we will deliver by end of September with not 2 by 4 connectors. That is the critical deliverable.

Cool. You mentioned Hyperledger, what are the other 3 connectors?

Sure - we are working on everything in paralell but once we deliver the working tech we can then share how our clients are using it, what real world solutions it's actually being applied to - that's what I'm really excited but I'm hesitant to say that will be 100% in September - it may take a little longer but regardless that is still our goal and that is what we are going to deliver.

Question(s):

Loucineh
Correct - Ripple, Hyperledger, Ethereum and Bitcoin.
Good afternoon BTW What we are all very keen to explore is quant health? Any bits of info that we can then go off and research ourselves yet?

Sure - healthcare is kind of big. Gilbert referenced it when he spoke at the National Press Club if you read over his speech on medium. It's big because it encompasses governments as well as enterprise clients. There is a mulitide of ways Overledger will be of value in healthcare. From helping secure their global supply chains to helping pharma companies with managing clinical trials recruitments, to pricing and global health financing, to helping hospital networks with their data management - it's a huge opportunity and one thst we are passionate sbout and experienced in. We will go into some detail on the new website which will go live in the next week so you can read more about it there too.

Thanks looking forward to it. The NHS here has been notorious with IT wastage on systems that still don't connect fully. Even just tackling our domestic issues could be a game changer.

Exaaaaactly. Healthcare wastage is such a massive issue. In the US they estimate it's about 1 in 3 dollars spent. And lack of interoperability is something that healthcare sectors all too well and they are very enthusiastic to see that change and use technology to their advantage. I think there is misconception that they may be reluctant but we are seeing that healthcare are far more early aopters than even Fintech sector.

How soon might you reasonably expect the first decent size adoption of Overledger by a healthcare-related entity? What’s the biggest hurdle you face in persuading healthcare organisations to adopt a blockchain solution?

We have 2 PoC's in Health being lined up. Expect to complete by the end of the year. The biggest hurdle was senior management buy-in. When we met, the CEO wanted blockchain tested and loved our interoperable approach because they can re-use what they've already got. The hardest bit is integrating with existing systems. It's very difficule to implement new solutions without affecting live service, especially in mission critical environments like hospitals and healthcare. Luckily, our approach is simple and lightweight.

That's correct. There is more detail in the business and technical whitepaper on the MApps store. Our goal is for it to be a flexible approach and to empower developers not to hinder them. We will release more info closer to the launch of the MApp Store which is due in 2019.

Are you able to talk to specific initial use cases for QH? I recall you mentioning you were preparing an article. Will that be appearing on the web site next week or will you publish it elsewhere?

Both - the article is a bit of summary that will go on Medium. On the website, we will go into specifics like for example - we take clinical trial process and explain how overledger will expedite and simplify that process and the potential cost savings. I'm also planning to host a roundtable discussion with some external stakehodlers from public and private a sector and talk about some fo the biggest issues their facing in healthcare and how DLT and specifically Overledger can help. A lot more to come.

Will Quant, with the rebranding get a new name @loucineh ?
No - same name, still QNT - just new visual branding assets etc.

Question(s):

I notice overledger.com is redirected to quant health, will it be separately developed as such a strong brand and domain

(Question not found in Telegram. Source: Reddit AMA Summary 03.09.2018)

Answer(s):

Yeah so part of branding process was building out the hierachy and how we visualise the coprorate brand Quant Network and how the products and verticals fall within that - so actually it will have it's own logo as well. It's all aligned and has the same look and feel but it gives it can also stand alone. Same for GoVerify.

Question(s):

Problem with healthcare is privacy and GDPR right? These guys -https://www.dovetaillab.com/ - are also based in London and doing a good job (£1M research grant from NHS). Saw a presentation by Gilbert on the same day they were presenting in London so sure he is also aware of their work. Looking forward to reading about quant health solutions. There was an interesting paper on data sharing in healthcare published on blockchain in healthcare today using cosmos architecture.

Answer(s):

Yep I know the founder of Dovetail and we have had a few discussions about health

Coming from Health, the whole idea for Overledger came from my time as CISO of Health, it is a big sector to tackle. We're looking at it strategically to help tackle and solve problems that can be solved, more specifically use cases.

Thank you! We need to create a bigger ecosystem and community around Overledger. We need people to start working the technology and coming up with great ideas and use cases and solve existing challenges! We can't wait to see what you'll build with Overledger!
