HIT Foundation

HIT matches people seeking health information with those who provide it through a decentralized marketplace. Health information is tokenized and thereby converted into the healthcare currency of the future.

Token Economy


Individuals are interested in earning tokens. In order to do so they must be willing to digitize their health-related data and make them shareable

Phase 2

Information seekers must acquire tokens in order to compensate individuals for giving access to their data – Existing data holders can enrich their data or earn tokens by making data accessable.

Phase 3

Tokens can be used to redeem Services – Tokens can be used in Loyalty programs

System – How it works

Process of Token Transfer and Data Access

The HIT aligns network participants to achieve common goals — the growth of the network and the appreciation of the HIT token. Based on smart contracts the user/patient can receive tokens corresponding to the “value” of the data that is assigned by the information seeker. The smart contract that is incorporated in the request determines the access to the data and the transfer of token under the agreed conditions.
