Segment 1 - Introduction

[May] 
Hello, 안녕하세요, 大家好, Привет, नमस्ते, Selamat!

My name is May and I'll be hosting the AMA with MISBLOC.

[JinKook Im] 
Hi guys! It's nice to be here! Shall we start then?

[May] 
Yes, please.

Today, we have with us JinKook Im, the Marketing Manager at MISBLOC.

You're welcome and it's an honor to have you here.

Could you quickly tell us more about yourself and your job description at MISBLOC?

[JinKook Im] 
Sure thing!

Hi Decentralized Club Community followers, it’s nice to e-meet you all here today!

My name is Jinkook Im. I am the Marketing Manager at MISBLOC.
 
Unfortunately, our CEO - Kim Dohee could not make it to today’s AMA session, thus I will be in charge of today’s AMA session.

MISBLOC (Medical Information Service with Blockchain) is a medical service ecosystem, which is based on blockchain technology.

In short, MISBLOC offers a sustainable medical service ecosystem, by utilizing selected medication information in a combination with blockchain technology in the MyData era, which is the era of big data of individual lifelog, that connects telecommunication-medical-financial spheres

[May] 
Do send our regards to the CEO! We're glad we have you with us.

[JinKook Im] 
Thank you, May! I'm happy to be here too!

[May] 
Your project looks interesting! Let's take some project introductory questions, shall we?

[JinKook Im] 
Sure thing! Let's get to it.

[May] 
Q1. How is MISBLOC used to obtain medical information? What are the steps involved?

[JinKook Im] 
Good question. In the nutshell, MISBLOC utilizes ANAPATALK to obtain the medical information of the patients and clinics registered in the platform. First and foremost, MISBLOC’s flagship product - ANAPATALK is the application that allows the use of telemedicine seamlessly and innovatively. First of all, in the ANAPATALK, the partnering medical institutions shall be provided with a platform that will boost their profitability through transparent and efficient data management. Secondly, the patients shall have access to their personal medical information, which will contribute to the enhancement of stability obtainment, convenient utility, and even monetization. You may try it via the application:

Android: ​https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.anapatalk&hl=en

iOS:https://apps.apple.com/kr/app/%EC%95%84%EB%82%98%ED%8C%8C%ED%86%A1/id1543692486

[May] 
Great!

Q2. What is the process for medical service providers to advertise on MISBLOC?

[JinKook Im] 
MISBLOC offers very convenient access to its innovative advertising tools provided in its flagman application - ANAPATALK. In MISBLOC's mobile application, there is a corner where each medical institution can place a banner, and each banner can be clicked, and after the click, the visitor will be directed to the product detail page.

The detailed page can include the location of each medical institution and the introduction of medical staff. In order to use the hospital marketing section, we encourage the purchase of tokens by having them pay for actual marketing expenses, thereby enhancing the value of tokens. A significant proportion of tokens generated by revenue from marketing corners are redistributed to the community and to each service to design a virtuous cycle structure in which the token ecosystem can be sustained.

[May] 
Q3. Can you tell us the origin of the name ANAPATALK and what you intend to achieve with the platform?

[JinKook Im] 
Well, that’s a good story behind the origin of the ANAPATALK name. The name originates from the combination of two conceptual words, that are well known within the Korean society, where the first one “Anapa” holds the meaning of “not being ill or sick” and the “talk” is the direct association with the most famous mobile messaging app “KakaoTalk”. If you combine these two concepts, it will pinpoint logically to the “Medical Messaging App”, which is essentially the concept of telemedicine, hence the ANAPATALK.

Also regarding the ANAPATALK's long-term vision

With ANAPATALK, we want to achieve the next-level activation of the telemedicine concept across the globe and provide maximum ownership over the patients' records to their original holders. In short, ANAPATALK should revolutionize the medical ecosystem, by initiating medical data decentralization, making the medical data interoperable, and ensuring the reliability of the medical data across all the involved stakeholders of MISBLOC.

[May] 
좋은!
Nice! 😎

[JinKook Im] 
Wow! Impressive!

[May] 
😊

Q4. Apart from reviewing hospitals or clinics, how else can one acquire the $MSB token and how will its price be positively affected in the long term?

[JinKook Im] 
Well, in fact, the MSB Tokens can either be acquired as a reward through activities within the ANAPATALK platform or can be purchased on the cryptocurrency exchange platform. MSB tokens are not only commonly used in token ecosystems within mobile applications, but are also available in MISBLOC partnership hospitals and clinics for payment of medical bills, thereby maximizing usability. Well, we cannot engage in forecasting the long-term price. A significant proportion of tokens generated by revenue from marketing corners are redistributed to the community and to each service to design a virtuous cycle structure in which the token ecosystem can be sustained.

[May] 
Where is $MSB currently trading?

[JinKook Im] 
It is currently traded on Bithumb (both KRW and BTC pairs) and Coinone (KRW pairs). We hope to see many trading pairs and platforms in the future.

[May] 
Awesome!

Q5. What is further planned for MISBLOC to achieve this year?

[JinKook Im] 
That's a very relevant question! We are currently concentrating on increasing the utility feature of the $MSB tokens and making the ANAPATALK more active, by bringing more partners and medical institutions to the platform. In the first 6 months of 2021, we have managed to bring up to 50 medical institutions and dental clinics to the platform to connect their patients and services to the MISBLOC's flagship product - ANAPATALK. Hence, the users can use the services of the connected partners, paying for their fees in MSB tokens. During the remaining period of this year, we will continue signing more partners to establish a virtuous cycle inside of our ecosystem and provide the best UI and customer experience for our beloved users. In fact, we're currently planning to release the ANAPTALK 2.0 version, which will be a huge upgrade from the preceding version.

[May] 
Jjang! 😎
Awesome! 😎

We look forward to amazing news from MISBLOC soon!

Let's now take some Twitter questions! 🎉

Segment 2 - Twitter Questions

Q1. How can I inform my doctor about my health problems through the MISBLOC medical platform app called ANAPATALK? Is there any kind of chat through the application or something similar?

Twitter Username: @Greyhair_08

[JinKook Im] 
First thing first, the user will have to access the ANAPATALK application by downloading it and registering on the platform. Afterward, they will access the forum, where they will be able to upload their health-related issue for the specialist review. Once the review is provided and the question is answered, the patient will be charged in $MSB tokens. By the way, as I have already mentioned, the ANAPATALK is currently under construction and the 2.0 version is planned to be launched very soon. It’s expected that the 2.0 version shall bring a lot of updates and modifications that will further lead to the robust activation of the telemedicine ecosystem.

[May] 
Easy as ABC!

The $MSB token surely has so much potential!

[JinKook Im] 
It surely does!

[May] 
Yes!

Q2. I love that your project is focused on the medical sector. Your use case is also very strong. What measures are in the works for the real-world adoption of your token? How do you intend to bridge the gap?

Twitter Username: @ohajianyaamand2

[JinKook Im] 
Adoption is always a great question to address. However, If the question is addressed towards what are the KPIs of the MSB adoption, we can think of the following measurements:

1) Partners / Alliances: the more medical institutions join the ANAPATALK’s ecosystem, the more supply side of the telemedicine community will be active, thus patients will be encouraged to utilize the $MSB token more actively to access the services and treatments offered by the partners available in the MISBLOC.

2) Patients: obviously, more users means more demand for the $MSB. This is perhaps the most direct KPI for the MISBLOC team to focus on to create a virtuous cycle for the $MSB Token.

3) Expansion: this might not be a direct way of increasing the $MSB utility and adoption, but apparently, the more points are connected, the more use cases will be created for the $MSB, thus geographical and societal expansions are also going to add up to the adoption.

I hope that answers your question. If not, feel free to reach me out and I shall explain it in a more detailed manner.

[May] 
This answers the question perfectly!

Q3. I can see the MISBLOC CEO is a Dentist. Is general health information available on MISBLOC or is it only teeth-related information?

Twitter Username: @repmujduolc

[JinKook Im] 
I wish our CEO could answer that question directly, but I'm happy to share his vision regarding this question. MISBLOC essentially aims to become a multi-directional solution in the medical sphere. However, provided the wide network of the CEO and his background, it was a safe move to start from the dental area and keep the progress from there to other medical areas. In the future, ANAPATALK will have the different medical services to be offered in its platform, which exactly the services to be offered will be announced in future disclosures. Stay updated with our ongoing progress in our community channels!

[May] 
I can't wait for this expansion! 🎉🎉🎉

Does your project have a Telegram group as well where users can send questions?

We only have the channel 🙂

[JinKook Im] 
Unfortunately, we have the announcement channel only, but users can reach us out by telegram or email. But we do have a Korean community channel.

[May] 
Okay! That's fine 😁

We're 75% done with this AMA session but I am 100% impressed with MISBLOC. 💯

[JinKook Im] 
Hahaha! As I already said, happy to be here with you guys!

[May] 
Well done to the MISBLOC team! You are all amazing 🎉🎉🎉

Let's now take two questions from our website community.

Segment 3 - Website Questions

[May] 
Q1. You mention that the MISBLOC system is immune to counterfeiting and counterfeiting since it has blockchain technology, but if scams and hacking really increase every day on the blockchain, what guarantee will customers have that they do not suffer this with MISBLOC?

Telegram Username: @Gutike95

[JinKook Im] 
First and foremost, we should note that, currently, medical data is managed by a system that is thoroughly centralized by the medical institutions. This makes medical data less transparent and reliable, thus more vulnerable and prone to data loss and hacking issues. This in turn jeopardizes accessibility and proper utilization of data and implies the fact that it is always exposed to the risk of sensitive data leakage. However, the application of the blockchain helps us to majorly address this issue, although we’re not fully prone to risk factors, nor any of the leading projects in this sphere.

Let’s assume the hacking case here. The concept of the blockchain is contrasted with the concept of centralization, thus P2P transactions can be carried out without the presence of intermediaries. Hence, the validation process is carried out in the exact order in which blocks are created, that is by the unit of information storage, which limits and prevents the cases with the falsification or forgery of the data. Data manipulation or counterfeit is virtually impossible since to manipulate information within the blockchain one must hack information from a majority of participants and falsify all subsequent blocks, which is indeed a very complicated thing to accomplish. In other words, the core value of blockchain technology is the establishment of a P2P trust-based network without intermediary agencies, and it is a technology that is currently being developed continuously.

I hope that fully covers the technical security part of this question.

[May] 
A minute for the community to digest 😁

I'm sure it does!

Again, I'm so impressed! 😊

Well-done MISBLOC team!

[JinKook Im] 
Thanks again, May!

[May] 
You're welcome!

Last question for this session.

Q2. Is ANAPATALK available for use globally? Can medical professionals from all around the world sign up on the platform to provide users with healthcare information? If yes, how do you verify their licenses?

Telegram Username: @thejasminejade

[JinKook Im] 
Last question for today to finalize this wonderful AMA session. At the current moment, ANAPATALK is concentrated on the use cases on a local level and is connected with the local medical institutions. However, the ultimate goal for the MISBLOC is to get the ANAPATALK to the global level with the partners & users being present from all the corners of this globe. Stay tuned and updated with our news and announcements to know more about the progress on this aspect!

[May] 
Aha! This is a great answer!

[JinKook Im] 
I fully enjoyed this AMA session and thanks to those who took part in this session! I hope you also enjoyed it! Make sure to join our communities to stay updated with our news!
