Data Management Hub (DaMaHub)
Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change the world. Data is the basis of empirical research. Authentic, findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable data is paramount to enable the reproduction of scientific research and to empower education with open science around the world.
What it does
Data Management Hub is an architecturally distributed research data management solution which enables scientists to collaborate on sensitive data privately and to make their authenticated research data permanently Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable to empower research replications universally and help scientists' to built careers with attribution of data authorship.
How we built it
By combining a distributed hypermedia protocol (IPFS) with a permissioned public blockchain (Hyperledger Fabric)
Challenges we ran into
Documentation is raw. Learning curve is steep. Time is short.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Replacement of Dodgecoin's blockchain with Hyperledger.
What we learned
We learned how to use Hyperledger playground. We began to learn how to use Hypeledger Fabric.
What's next for Data Management Hub
Developing Hyperledger for Data Management Hub. Securing resources for developing Data Management Hub MVP. Building global community around Data Management Hub.
