Hello, its @princekelly, and am back with a new article on open source projects which has a lot to offer regarding health on the Steem Blockchain.
@ned talked about, how the Steem Blockchain is a platform full of opportunities at a Gopak/Steemit meetup in Korea, speaking to over a thousand investors and potential content creators. The Gopak/Steemit meetup revealed a lot of possibilities if we all can key into the opportunities laying in wit for us on the Steem Blockchain and this article is somewhat related to this opportunity being talked about by @ned.
This article is about the first open source health platform on the Steem Blockchain. However it started off as a community on discord, I have been a member of this health community for the past seven months on discord. I don’t know why it took me so long to write about this great platform. In this article, I would be sharing my thoughts and experience about this great platform called AIR-CLINIC.
A wise quote by Denis Waitley
Time and health are two precious assets that we don’t recognize and appreciate until they are being depleted.
According to the World Health Organization, it states health as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
What is Air-Clinic
Air-Clinic is the first health facility on the Steem Blockchain, where everyone, can seek quality health care service from anywhere in the world. It is a place where health enthusiasts can get involve and get rewarded for their participation in health-related matters. The platform is the total package of human well being, from the physical, mental and social well-being of each. It started out from a well-managed discord server to what we have today in its website and mobile applications.
Aim of Air-Clinic
Air-Clinic aims to reduce central control of health care by its decentralized platform which would, in turn, increase the medical sector functionality worldwide. To pave the way for the health sector to key into the possibilities made available by the Steem Blockchain and the future payment for health care via cryptocurrency. Air-clinic is building a system where people have easy access to quality Healthcare service, and also gets incentives for living healthy and sharing of quality, healthy living articles via the Air-Clinic platform on Steemit.

Air-Clinic and Actifit
Actfit is another open source fitness project which is based on the physical aspect of health, in promoting physical well being of users. Users can benefit a lot from the [Actifit] fitness scheme, which encourages users to perform minimum basic activities in boosting their physical health. While users get rewarded for their daily activities, However Air-Clinic isn’t based only on physical well being but as well on the mental and social well being of its users.
Actift has a nice SMT program for its users, where delegators receive, but the Air-Clinic has a more robust SMT program for its users. Air-Clinic introduce a big bounty campaign to reward for its users, creating a lot of medium in which users get their token for free.
Actifit is on Android and IOS devices; Air-Clinic is on Android, coming soon on IOS devices.
I love the daily update news from Actifit on their @actifit account.
[Air-Clinic] has over 1,921 members on its discord server and Actifit has over 540 members on its [discord server], as at the time of writing this article. Both projects have some cool, distinctive emoji on their discord chat.
I love the number of activities available on the Air-Clinic app, to make sure users spend more quality time on the platform and get rewarded.
Some Features of the Air-Clinic App
Air-Clinic Social: In this section of the app, I can find various articles on health and posts relating to Air-Clinic.
Doctor On Duty: In this sections, we can chat or make a video call with the doctor on duty, regarding any health issues or challenges. It is a 24 hours service where different doctors take turns at attending to users.
Post Health Status: This section allow users like me, post about our health update and broadcasted to our Steemit blog page from the app. There is a bounty going on currently for making use of this section, called the Health Status Challenge, Where users get Aircoin and upvotes.
Submit Health Article: in this section, I can create quality health posts, and it would undergo review within 24 to 48 hours by the Air-Clinic moderating team before being broadcast to the Steem Blockchain. Read the posting guidelines here. The writing pad has a sophisticated writing toolbox, which I like a lot.

Currently, Air-Clinic has 3 top delegators of 1000 Sp each, @lukestokes, @ejemai, @bitshares101. The delegation ratio to Aircoin is in ratio 1:10. 100 Sp gets you 1000 Aircoins, Monthly.
- I would love to see Air-Clinic as a registered company in Nigeria under the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), this could be extended to other countries as the company evolves. I see this as a great step towards actualizing the aims and hopes of Air-Clinic, which would, in turn, increase the awareness of the Steem Blockchain, bringing in new investors and content developers all over the country and also, increase the Steem value.
- The App’s UI should be improved greatly to attract more users, though I am not a developer yet I feel more could be done.
- A medication section should be added into the app, to help patients take their medications rightly. Most people around me tend to misuse their drugs; all for different reasons, The medication section could avoid drug misuse.
- Users should be able open links from the app on their favorite browsers.
Air-Clinic is a massive project which needs the support of everyone, from investors to health practitioners, content developers, promoters, software developers. The project would benefit everyone immensely. Its contribution to the value of the Steem Blockchain would be tremendous.
Thank you @nairadaddy for the Air-Clinic project.
