The future of artificial intelligence in healthcare!
ICO STARTS AT FEB 26, 2018 (00:00 CET)
Blockchain infrastructure aimed to host, train and use artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare.
The mission of Skychain is to save 10 million patients from premature death due to medical errors within 10 years.
Medical errors are the third leading cause of death. For example, when doctors analyze X-ray lung images, they fail to diagnose early lung cancer in 69 percent of cases!
There are many hundreds of examples like that in healthcare. But artificial intelligence can dramatically reduce the number of such errors!
Skychain intends to provide an infrastructure to radically increase the efficiency of healthcare AI development and training. It will make diagnostic AI systems far more accessible and affordable for the consumer by using blockchain technologies to facilitate safe transactions between the key parties.
IBM estimates the artificial intelligence market in the healthcare sector to reach $200 billion in a few years. Skychain’s goal is to control more than 70% of that market!
Skychain is unique. The project is based on the revolutionary approach of using smart contracts to bring together many healthcare big data providers whose data is vital for AI training, thousands of independent AI developers, computational resource providers (crypto miners), and millions of consumers.
Skychain is the next leader in the healthcare AI market!

Use Skychain to analyze the medical tests using hundreds of trained neural networks and get an accurate diagnosis
Doctors and patients will have the opportunity to simultaneously analyze the medical tests results with the help of hundreds of independent neural networks, and get the most accurate diagnosis and complete analysis.
Key problems we solve
The current situation in the market of medical neural networks can be described as the initial stage of the emergence of the market. Its current issues are as follows:
- It is difficult for laboratories and creators of neural networks to provide access to their developments to end users (doctors). There is no unified infrastructure. Skychain will become an analogue of AppStore for them. Using it, any doctor can quickly use the neural network of interest.
- The common problem for most of the developers is accessing medical data for training of their neural networks. Skychain will provide a special function of hosting of medical datasets in a closed-loop system, and the ability to teach third-party neural networks, using these datasets. The datasets will be kept in safety and remain the property of their owners, as well as the neural networks. It also guarantees the receipt of a fee for each use of the neural network both for developers and for the providers of datasets, which were used for training of neural networks. Large corporations, such as IBM, are not able to independently train thousands of neural networks needed to fully cover all areas of medical diagnostics. Skychain will contain thousands or even tens of thousands of highly specialized neural networks created by independent laboratories and corporations.
- The market of neural networks is constrained by the high cost of equipment suitable for effective machine learning, and the complexity of the design and training tools. Skychain will provide a convenient tool for neural networks development and the possibility of their inexpensive and fast learning with the help of the distributed computing resources of Skychain members. The total computing power of Skychain will exceed the data centers of any large corporations.
Skychain will change the ecosystem of neural networks and make them publicly available to all market participants! At the same time, each participant will benefit from his participation in the Skychain community.
Yes. Several dozen neural networks have been implemented and trained by specialists around the world today, already solving these tasks as the best specialists in their fields. This area is developing dynamically – in 10 years most diagnoses will be made by neural networks, probably under the supervision of a living doctor.
The today’s problem is that these neural networks function within laboratories and institutions and there is no mechanism for the unified use of neural networks by doctors. Skychain will unify all these distributed neural networks and provide doctors with a single window for their use. Skychain's data marketplace will allow the best specialists in the field of artificial intelligence to quickly develop and teach neural networks using the amount of medical data, which no organization or state can ever collect in one place. Due to this, the number and quality of Skychain's neural networks will be unreachable for any private or public project. Besides this, by uploading information about a patient in Skychain, a doctor can analyze it in dozens (or even hundreds) different neural networks and get the most complete state of a patient.
IBM estimates the artificial intelligence market in the sphere of medicine at $200 billion a year in a few years. The goal of Skychain is to take control over 70% of this market! The way to achieve this goal is to create the best open infrastructure that will accumulate the resources of the majority of participants of this industry and surpass any closed corporate product.
Skychain miners can provide their computing resources and get paid not only for mining of cryptocurrency coins, but also providing a requested service, which is in a solvent demand. This fundamentally sets Skychain mining apart from mining of classic cryptocurrencies (BTC, ETC, etc.) where miners perform useless calculations only to proof-of-work.
Skychain will be able to analyze information about a patient according to his medical tests, history, symptoms and research results. Moreover, this analysis can be performed with hundreds of different neural networks at once that will not miss any important detail and can effectively diagnose rare diseases and improve the quality of diagnostics. A doctor and a patient will be able to get a reliable “second opinion” from Skychain.
Yes, Skychain architecture allows storing and processing any neural networks. We decided to focus on medicine at this stage, as this is a very urgent task and the project organizers have a rich experience in this field.
Yes, developments of these companies are interesting. But training even one artificial neural network for diagnosis of a single disease is a complex task that requires painstaking work on designing a neural network and preparing a large data set for its training. A neural network often must be redesigned and retrained after the training. In Skychain, the developer will be able to train his neural networks using large number of datasets provided by independent suppliers for reward, this will make it possible to train the deepest and most accurate neural networks. Thousands of independent laboratories will be able to place their neural networks on Skychain and no corporation in the world can spend so much intellectual and human resources to create their product. Just like no taxi company can compete with the Uber drivers network in the number of cars, no software developer can compete with App Store in the number and coverage of applications.
We admit that at the pre-ICO or ICO stage there may be a situation that the project's tokens will not be redeemed and we will not be able to develop the project without this support. The project failure is possible in this regard. But we are 100% sure that a platform with principles outlined in our whitepaper will be created and universally recognized. Modern technologies allow creating such a system, which means that it will definitely appear, since its high value for people is obvious. If the ICO is successful, we are confident that we will implement Skychain and it will be universally recognized.
The Skychain is based on five core ideas:
2. Artificial neural networks
3. IT in medicine
4. Sharing economy
We as the core team of Skychain, have deep knowledge and experience in all of these five fields. And, which is also important, Skychain is a project that we want to devote our lives to.
The attraction of classical investors reduces the level of independence of the team and the project. We want to remain independent, develop Skychain not relying on investors’ opinions and their short-term goals. Therefore, we chose an ICO model and hope for community confidence in our project, team and goals.
Each Skychain Token will be sold for $1. There is a preICO discount of 50%. So at the preICO stage Skychain token price is $0.5.
We offer bonuses to early participants of ICO (until collection of SOFT-CAP), as well as bonuses for purchases of more than $ 20,000.
|ICO stage (to the right)
Amount being bought (below)
|Until 10,000,000 tokens are sold||Tokens sold: from 10,000,001 to 20,000,000||Tokens sold: from 20,000,000 to 30,000,000|
|$15 ... $20,000||$0.95||$1||$1.10|

Yes - starting on the 18.12.2017, Two Million Skychain tokens will be sold via the pre-sale which will last 21 days. If all 2 million tokens are not sold during the pre-sale, the remaining tokens will be sold during the main token sale.
The Pre-Sale will start on 18 Dec 2017 (00:00 CET) and end on 7 Jan 2018 (23:59 CET) The main token sale starts on 26 Feb 2018 (00:00 CET) and will last until 31 Mar (23:59 CET).
We will create up to 36 million Skychain tokens. However this depends on the actual subscription amount. Thus the 36 million are the maximum amount created.
A maximum amount of 30 000 000 Skychain tokens will be sold during the token sale.
The mininum cap for the token sale to be considered a success is 400 000 Skychain tokens for presale and 10 000 000 Skychain tokens for ICO.
We will accept ETH, BTC.
The tokens will be distributed after the main token sale ends. Those tokens can be send to a wallet which is ERC20-compatible. We will try our best to distribute the tokens within 10 days after sale closing. The final distribution date is on March 8th 2018.
You are able to fund your account via BTC or ETH. You can buy the tokens with any wallet which holds a BTC or ETH. In order to receive the tokens we will need a wallet that accepts ERC20 tokens.
In order to receive your tokens when the main token sale ends, we need your ETH Address from your ERC20 Wallet.
You can buy the tokens with any wallet which holds a BTC or ETH. In order to receive those tokens you will need a wallet which accepts ERC20 Tokens.
There are multiple ways for you to create an ETH wallet. We recommend using either Mist, MyEtherWallet, Parity or ImToken.. Let’s have a quick look on how to create a MyEtherWallet: In Order to create a new wallet, you can visit MyEtherWallet.com. On the main page you can simply enter a strong password and click on “Create New Wallet”. After creating your account, please download your Keystore File. Do not share it, lose it and please make a backup of it. The next site will show your private key. This key is crucial for you. Again – do not share it, lose it and make a backup. Those files and keys will help you to retrieve access to your wallet. Now, in order to unlock, please choose “Private Key” and enter your previously saved private key. This will open your private wallet and show your Address. This address is needed for anyone, including us, who wants to send coins to your wallet. So please save this as well. Your address can be used in Skychain to receive your tokens.
It will store all neural networks developed by hundreds of laboratories and organizations in a single registry so that any neural network can be calculated any server connected to Skychain. Besides this, storing neural networks in a single registry is safe for their author as no one except the author can get a reward for the use of his neural network and it can’t be unloaded and launched outside Skychain, because the calculation result is decoded the neural network’s author’s computer with his private key.
TToday developers of neural networks must purchase expensive equipment to train their artificial neural network, experiment with various neural network structures and select the best structure for solving their problem. With Skychain, any researcher can build his own artificial neural network using SkyConstrucor builder tools, pay for renting the required computing resources with Skychain Global Coins and train his neural network. The developer will also be able to train his neural networks using a large number of datasets provided by independent suppliers, this will make it possible to train the deepest and most accurate neural networks. Then, Skychain will allow an author to get remuneration from end users of his neural network. This will motivate developers of neural networks to upload their neural networks to Skychain and thus develop the Skychain ecosystem.
Yes, when a doctor sends information about a patient and test results, this information is distributed to a plenty of neural networks and executed on different servers at the same time. neural networks can be also trained in parallel, when one server (for example, of a neural network’s developer) controls the training process and plenty of servers of miners consistently train it on individual examples and send the neural network parameters to the controlling server for combining them together. The calculation of neural networks (inference) will be performed on a miner’s server and decrypted on a server of the neural network’s owner. But an inference is not a costly operation and is effectively performed even on one server.
Yes, data centers of large corporations are really big. But if you look at the current blockchain networks, such as Ethereum, you can see that these networks combine huge computing resources of miners, much superior in their processing power than any centralized data center. That’s why Skychain will provide more computing powers and at a better price than any corporation.
Skychain Global Coins can be mined with computers with several powerful video cards. The proof-of-work algorithm used in Skychain Global Coin uses matrix multiplication operations (BLAS GEMM), which is most efficiently computed on tensor cores (such as Nvidia Tesla V100). The use of tensor cores allows speeding up the training and calculation of Skychain neural networks a dozen times. We chose this solution to ensure that all computers of miners are useful to the Skychain network, not only for creating new blocks, but also training and calculating neural networks.
Skychain is an infrastructure. We will be adding support for all widespread libraries and tools in Skychain. So, if a new library for artificial neural networks that solves problems well appears tomorrow, for example, we will test it and include its support in our core. Thus, Skychain will speed up spreading the progress in this area and the use of the latest developments and libraries by a wide range of specialists and consumers.

A well-thought-out token model
The total amount issued is 36,000,000 tokens, but only 30,000,000 tokens will be available for sale; the rest is intended for the project team and the partners. Any unsold tokens will be burned. The tokens held by the project team (10 percent of the total amount sold) will be locked up for 2 years. Later all the tokens will be converted into Skychain's own crypto currency, Skychain Global Coin, which is based on the proof-of-stake concept. No more coins will be issued in the future. Adding more masternodes will cost their operators 100,000 tokens. The tokens will be listed on crypto exchanges in April 2018, so that more interested parties can buy them. A well-thought-out token model suggests high demand for Skychain tokens in the future.
Strong project team
The founder of Skychain is a successful IT business operator. The key advisor is an expert on artificial intelligence who has already founded a number of successful companies. The prototype system development was funded by the Skychain project founder Gennady Popov. Skychain didn't have any closed fundraising rounds, and no market players have been able to buy Skychain tokens below market value. There were 900 investors at the pre-ICO stage; Skychain didnt attract any major investors. Most investors buy Skychain tokens with a view to make a profit in the long run.
