For better or worse, Helo Corp intends to continue stick with its blockchain platform.
Beginning in the fourth quarter, the Company plans to move forward on contribut(ing) to the development of a blockchain-based decentralized health data platform designed to enable our customers to own, control and monetize their personal health data.
Outside of “because blockchain”, I have no idea why anyone would want their personal health records and information on a decentralized platform for anyone to
