PRASM is an AI-based decentralized bioinformatic network.
The ecosystem of the project includes various types of participants:
- Participants that provide information about their health.
- Participants that offer solutions to health problems (coaches, counselors, health workers, medical centers and providers of various medical equipment).
Therefore, the platform enables participants to pick up the necessary skills and information on the platform to improve their health.
Each participant receives a reward in the form of tokens for providing information about their body and health, and suppliers of goods and services receive customers.
PRASM provides the following services:
- Recommendations for improving one’s lifestyle based on biometric information.
- Providing information on the possibility of needing to undergo a particular examination.
- Registration of a license for access to a certain part of personal biometric data.
- Providing information on free procedures: remote and on-site.

The project is based on an ecosystem linking people who care for their health, clinics and medical centers.
Strengths of the project:
- A large number of strategic partners.
- An experienced team.
Weaknesses of the project:
- There is no MVP.
- The strategy of attracting users to the platform is not presented.
Market and industry
The project is entering the health industry and the wellness market. According to the TechNavio report, the market is predicted to grow by 6% annually between 2018 and 2022. The main growth will be in developing countries. [https://www.technavio.com/report/global-health-and-wellness-market-analysis-share-2018]
However, it is worth noting that the biometrics market is forecasted to demonstrate high growth rates of 20.9% per year until 2020. [https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/bioinformatics-market-growing-at-209-cagr-to-2020-with-bioinformatics-platforms-product-segment-expected-to-witness-the-fastest-growth-531175871.html]
Comments: The market selected by the team demonstrates low growth rates, which can become an obstacle when entering the market. However, if the team moves to the biometrics sector, the chances for a successful entry into the market will increase.
In the course of our research, we have identified the following competitors:
- Zenome – A platform that offers services based on human DNA tests to improve health.
- Block23 - A decentralized platform that exchanges and sells data to users, who receive advice and specialist services in return.
- Zkylos - The platform collects and stores the data of animals, and gives recommendations about necessary treatments to their owners.
Summary: The key difference between PRASM and its competitors is the focus on recommending services to people based on their health and body.
Engineering features of the platform
The platform is built on the basis of blockchain technology and AI.
The architecture of the platform includes:
1) Blockchain - Basic architecture that includes a database, a consensus algorithm and networks.
2) PRASM protocol - A protocol for the collection, integration and analysis of bioinformatics.
3) PRASM platform - The virtual space where participants and solutions are connected. Blockchain + PRASM-protocol + PRASM platform.
Each participant and solution provider plays the role of a node in the bioinformatics network. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One-time_password], [https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Bitcoin_Improvement_Proposals]
The platform receives and stores the following information:
- Initial information: Information about the human body, its parameters and condition.
- Vivo information: Dynamic data on the users’ physical state.
- Environmental factors: Environmental factors affecting human health.
- Health services: Services offered by various medical centers.
The platform collects information and works with it through:
1) Accounts: Each ecosystem participant has their own account to place their data and determine their role in the ecosystem.
2) Data transmission and reception channels: They are designed to identify possible errors or errors that may occur in accordance with channels and methods of measuring data.
3) Group bioinformatics. Group bioinformatics are formed as more participants accumulate bioinformatics. To explain the current state of a person, a lot of different groups can be compared.
As for the PRASM protocol process:
1) The participant enters their initial data into the system.
2) The AI diagnoses their physical condition based on bioinformatics and offers solutions for its improvement.
3) The participant chooses and implements them in practice.
4) The participant enters information and writes about their physical condition after the procedure.
5) The AI accepts and learns from this information.
Comments: The project uses known technologies that have already proven themselves in the market.
In the future, with the development of technology and the amount of data the team plan to implement the following:
- Q3 2018 - Establishment of a health center.
- Q4 2018 - PSM exchange, development of the decentralized platform and AI protocol, microRNA solution.
- Q1 2019 - Development of an IoT gateway for Bioinfo-mining and Cannabinoid solutions.
- Q2 2019 – Launch of the beta version of the application for mobile devices.
Comments: The team presented a step-by-step strategy for the project development. However, according to the Roadmap, the project has not even begun to implement its idea, which can negatively affect investors' expectations. At the time of writing, the smart contract was not yet presented. According to the team's response, the code will soon be available.
