Bitfury’s New Partnership to Build Blockchain-Based Medical Imaging Platform

Blockchain tech company Bitfury is partnering with radiology blockchain marketplace Medical Diagnostic Web (MDW) to create a blockchain-based medical imaging ecosystem. The partnership was announced by the Bitfury Group in a blog post on Feb. 11.

Established in 2011, the Bitfury Group operates as a software manufacturer and provider of security and infrastructure for the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain. The company raised $500 million in revenue in 2018. MDW is a radiology blockchain platform that allows radiologists to contact with imaging facilities and share patient data and medical images.

Within the new collaboration, Bitfury, MDW, and blockchain-powered life data marketplace Longenesis will develop a platform for maintaining, sharing and securing medical imaging and diagnostics information such as X-rays and CT scans. The platform will purportedly be built on Bitfury’s private blockchain framework Exonum, which will enable transactions to be validated using “anchoring” technology.
