Imagine a world where everyone, regardless of their financial status, could afford a good hospital with excellent services. And not only get treated but rewarded for coming for treatment.
“Ask the Doctor” is a platform that plans to make this possible. Before diving into what the platform plans and aspires to achieve, let’s look at what they stand for.
Ask The Doctor is a private Healthcare platform founded in the year 2014 in Toronto, Canada, by four men; Israel Idonije, Dikembe Mutombo, Dr. Patrick Golden, and Dr. Prakash Chand. The platform aims to help people around the world to live healthily.
Dr. Prakash, a founding member of both ‘Ask The Doctor’ and ‘FD7 Ventures’ in his speech, talked about a more developed world where everyone can easily get access to quality healthcare and at the same time get a reward in the form of a digital currency.
Ask the Doctor recently announced a shift from the use of ERC-20 to the use of Cardano due to Ethereum’s high gas fees. They believe the goal of providing free healthcare in Africa will be achieved due to Cardano and IOHK’s current presence and penetration.
It was also reported that the IOHK team had a preliminary meeting and hoped that in the 60days, the conversion gets completed.
Prakash’s Funds, FD7 Ventures, converted $750 million worth of Bitcoin into the acquisition of a large stake in Cardano and Polkadot. He has faith in the token and its community and believes his actions will support their laid down plan. The company further confirmed investing $250 million into the ecosystem’s growth and liquidating $380 million into Cardano.
Prakash Chand also spoke on how he loves Cardano’s business philosophy. He also said he was passionate about developing the world through Cardano.
The movement is a great one, and its members are making moves to bring their dream to life. This would transform underdeveloped places in Africa and transform the lives of people who previously could not afford quality healthcare services.
Over the last few years, blockchain-based projects offered very useful and feasible solutions to real-life issues and problems. Proving good health services to the African region is a good initiative as the region is deprived of many basic life facilities.
