INTERVIEW WITH CEO DR. JONATHAN FIOR ON DECENTRALIZING BIOMEDICAL DATA WITH INNBC
INNOVATIVE BIORESEARCH AND INNBC
Innovative Bioresearch Ltd is a biotech company founded by Italian research scientist Jonathan Fior with the goal of bringing innovation to the field of HIV, cancer and regeneration research. In 2018, we issued the INNBC token with the goal of decentralizing biomedical research, especially vaccine research for HIV, cancer and COVID, and to be used as a means of payment to access our pharmaceutical products and services. INNBC is the first real "DeSci" token ever created actually decentralizing biomedical research, from the funding aspect of the research, to data sharing, using 'INNBC DApp", our novel DApp allowing you to reconrd scientific text, images, even audio and video on the blockchain, 100% on chain.
INNBC DeSci MODEL AND ECOSYSTEM
INNBC is the first token to combine DeFi (decentralized finance) and science, introducing, for the first time, a “DeSci” model. In such a model, some supply is allocated for supporting development of pharmaceuticals for HIV, cancer, COVID, as well as development of decentralized applications for biomedical research. This is what, in turn, can really back the token utility as a novel tool for decentralized science. Just by simply using our INNBC DApp, you are actively contributing to provide more exposure and visibility to the INNBC project, and therefore supporting our decentralized vaccine research. Isn’t this amazing? This is something unprecedented in DeFi and crypto. We call this “DeSci”. Understanding the dynamics of the development of a pharmaceutical product is therefore extremely important before purchasing INNBC. INNBC did not have an ICO, the token initial distribution was to the participants of the bounty contests launched when we issued the token, after which INNBC was directly listed on the exchange markets where users are free to purchase the token. The token can be used right after purchasing, and all holders of INNBC are free to sell their tokens to users who need those for access to our platform.
INNBC DAPP, A REAL USE CASE IN SCIENCE
One of the goals of the project is to bring mass adoption of blockchain technology for science. This involves first the development of tools such as decentralized applications (DApps), providing utility and real use cases in biomedical research. When we started our study and research on which areas of scientific research could provide a suitable application for blockchain technology, we concluded that decentralization of scientific data is a very useful area, especially in terms of permanently recording and sharing the data using a blockchain. In fact, there are several specific features of blockchain technology that are very well suited for such a purpose:
•Immutability. Scientific data need to be immutable. Once a study is peer reviewed and published, its data must be permanently stored and never altered. In the blockchain, all data is stored in every single node, never ceasing to exist, and always staying on the blockchain. It is immutability that gives the blockchain its openness and BFT (Byzantine Fault Tolerance).
•Decentralization. The blockchain is designed to be distributed and synchronized across networks, making data freely available to anyone. We believe that scientific data should be shared and not being hidden behind a firewall. •Security. The kind of transactions that can be performed are strictly defined in advance and stored in the blockchain as “smart contracts”; this prevents fraudulent data from being added to the blockchain thus ensuring integrity of the database. By contrast, it would be much easier to compromise a centralized database.
•Proof of Authorship and identity. Say you make an important discovery and want an undeniable proof that you are the author. If you want to defend your work and claim in court to be the author, you must be able to prove it. This evidence can be difficult to provide. However, if you record the data on a blockchain, including a detailed description of your work, along with authorship information, the timestamp can prove that the data was generated at a certain point in time and have not been changed since. Such data recorded on the blockchain can legally represent an unambiguous reference to the author. A specific wallet can also be linked to the author and his institution, providing the author with a “digital identity” such as that only the transactions associated with that specific wallet would be considered legit data belonging to the author and his institution.
We developed the INNBC DApp to be a very pratical and straightforward tool for research scientists, accessible with no coding knowledge, featuring a simple, clean and intuitive front end UI (user interface) where users just need to paste their data as a text in the input field and press a button to store the data on chain.
The DApp is live and accessible at https://database.innovativebioresearch.com/
One of the most important features of the DApp is that all data is stored 100% on chain. We developed the first true on chain decentralized storage Dapp for biomedical research, which can also be used for general purpose data (such as text, images, audio and video) providing you with Identity, Timestamping, Content and Immutability (ITCI) for your business. What this means is that our Dapp has a wide range of applications in many different fields in addition to science. Below just a few examples:
•Application for Commercial Activities. Timestamping will allow you to record any relevant event for your business. Say for instance that you sold a product to a customer; you can record the event to the blockchain and include the tx as a QR code on the product itself as a proof of product authenticity and to keep track of the item.
•Application for Entertainment, Art and Software Development industries. Identity and Timestamping will protect the intellectual property of your work, providing you with proof of authorship. This is important for a large number of fields. For instance, it would work perfectly 8 well for NFTs where you could store your digital images on chain adding author information, instead than being stored on a centralized server as it currently happens. You could store a lower resolution version of the image or you could store it in different chunks in case of very large images.
•Application for Decentralized Messaging, News Releases, and Social Networking. Decentralization and Immutability provide a censorship resistant environment for posting content unlike traditional centralized platforms that can be controlled by the issuer (e.g., Twitter, Facebook) limiting your access to the platform, whereas this control does not exist in a decentralized platform. We built this application on Binance Smart Chain initially due to lower gas fees, and we plan to launch an Etherum version as well once ETH 2.0 is released.
INNBC UTILITY AND ECONOMY
At its core, INNBC is meant to be used as a means of payment to access our medical products. As such, by owning INNBC you own access to such products, with a token backed by actual pharmaceuticals. All our research studies are peer reviewed and available on pubmed, making INNBC the first token to feature actual scientific publications:
Fior, J. An initial in vitro investigation into the potential therapeutic use of SupT1 cells to prevent AIDS in HIV-seropositive individuals. PLoS ONE. 2012;7(5):e37511. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3359297/
Fior J. Is a pacific coexistence between virus and host the unexploited path that may lead to an HIV functional cure? Viruses. 2013;5(2):753-7. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/pmid/23430684
Fior J. Salamander regeneration as a model for developing novel regenerative and anticancer therapies. J Cancer. 2014;5(8):715-9. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/pmid/25258653
Fior J. SupT1 Cell Infusion as a Possible Cell-Based Therapy for HIV: Results from a Pilot Study in HuPBMC BRGS Mice. Vaccines. 2016;4(2):13. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/pmid/27128948
In addition to the pharmaceutical products, we also develop software for biomedical research, specifically DApps, with real use cases and utility in science, providing further value to the token. INNBC is also the governance token for our DeFiScience ecosystem. As we aim to lauch a DAO for biomedical research projects, INNBC will also be used for voting the most promising research projects to be supported with the token.
BUT IT DOES NOT END HERE! We launched a series of "side" products where INNBC will be supporting the production of real life products starting from high quality content Youtube series such as "SLYLINE GARAGE", an Italian series sponsored by INNBC that is advertising the token toward a mainstream audience of car enthusiasts.

WHAT'S NEXT? INNBC BLOCKCHAIN
As a next step in the evolution of the INNBC project, we are working to build our own blockchain, a mdern, proof-of-stake (POS) biomedical chain that will feature a larger block size to allow better storage of biomedical data. INNBC chain will be the first blockchain for biomedical research, and will implement a decentralized governance (DAO) supporting the development of biomedical research project. INNBC will be the base currency of the chain, meaning that fees will be paid in INNBC, it will be staked for running validator nodes, and it will also be used to provide voting power in the DAO.
