Presently in the works is the development of a blockchain-based healthcare staffing platform, designed to make the process of staffing healthcare professionals more effective and cost-efficient. With the use of AI technology, doctors, nurses, and technicians will be placed in the most suitable positions according to their experience and qualifications, resulting in higher employee satisfaction and performance, and in turn, better healthcare for patients.

There are a couple of car companies that have released hydrogen-powered cars, and there is a tremendous amount of opportunities in that space with that technology,” says Herman.
