F.A.Q.
Terminology of Human Discovery
Who is an Author of a Methodic?
An Author is a psychologist, coach, astrologist, scientist, career consultant, a consultant for health and other areas that can be referred to Human Science, who has studies on the interpretation of a person's characteristics in the form of a methodic. Examples of methodics are any tests, from MBTI or any psycho-type test. An Author gets access to the service of data interpretation for methodics based on a block that is a mathematical algorithm. It will allow forming templates, questionnaires, and visualize results, and at the end, it creates API of methodics on the basis of which an Entrepreneur of IT-developer can create a product.
What is a methodic?
A technique developed by psychologists, coaches or scientists that is similar to the test format, that allows typologizing one or another sector of a person's life by his/her personal data and formulate recommendations. Every Author can install a methodic into the system, having created a block for it.
What is the block and how does it work?
A block is a list of records in a distributed database that will receive information about a person according to the requirements of a methodic, process it and deliver recommendations in a structured view. Complex methodics are created via combining blocks of various Authors. Blocks are similar to smart-contracts and are uploaded by Authors to the blockchain-network and are executed on decentralized nodes, which are rewarded for performing data analysis.
What is the role of decentralization in the project?
Decentralization is an architecture built on independent nodes installed on distributed servers that store methodics or smart-contracts. Decentralization ensures independence from any decision-making center. Pros for Authors of methodics is that their work on collecting data and its interpretations that sometimes lasts for years will not be lost due to the fact that some service is closed. An Author can be sure that methodic will not be used otherwise than described in the contract, and that the platform will not increase bills for use to the extent that it becomes unprofitable. Advantages for Human Science are that thanks to decentralized architecture, it will become possible to collect large scopes of data about human behavior but without binding to some service that can go bankrupt or close at any level.
What is an Entrepreneur's role in the system?
An Entrepreneur is a person who creates a digital product on the basis of a methodics - for example, site, application, and social network.
Who is a Backer?
A person who is willing to sponsor the Development of a methodic of the certain Author with the purposes of future mutual benefits.
Who is a Consumer?
A user of the platform products. A Consumer receives a certain number of HD-tokens at registration and subsequently pays with them for the platform services. To execute a request for analysis of input data he spends HD-tokens that are later distributed between Authors of used blocks and the nodes based on which the analysis code is executed.
Who is an Executor?
A person that performs certain types of work: translation of a methodic into other languages, provision of IT-functionality, etc., and who receives payment for this in HD-tokens.
Who is an Owner of a Node?
A person who provides his/her technological resources for deploying a node, thereby ensuring distribution and stability of the system and who receives compensation for this in HD-tokens.
A product and a market
Describe Human Discovery Platform concept
HDP is a decentralized system for creation of complex methodics of a human personality analysis powered by blockchain that will give an impulse to the industry of personalized digital products in self-improvement and related industries. We create a synergistic environment where the best methodics from coaches, psychologists, and other Authors will be collected and digitized, and tools will be created for launching products based on them. An Author can install a methodic into a system, having created a block for it. Using several Authors' blocks, one can create methodics of any complexity. For example, an Author can translate his/her methodic into another language by placing a translation block in front of a block of his/her methodic. Blockchain not only offers possibilities of mutual use of methodics but also solves the problem of trust: data obtained as a result of analysis will be stored independently, so it will be much more difficult to manipulate results of studies.
What problem do you solve?
We create a transparent environment for creating high-quality digital products on the basis of proven methodics for a personality analysis that is currently delayed due to a number of problems. A problem of Authors of methodics is that methodics are disorganized, often poorly described, and precious data that they collect are usually lost. This complicates their improvement and results in distrust by the public. For example, the risk of encountering fraud is the main problem of self-improvement industry. In mass-media, one can meet accusations of representatives of the sector in a non-scientific approach. Human Discovery Platform solves this problem: the system will unite Authors of methodics and create a civilized environment that will allow proving and verification a methodic. Each use of a method-block will create a record in blockchain-network about incoming and outgoing data without connection with a user's personal data. Thus, the results of the analysis will become transparent, impersonal and available for verification.

Human Discovery Platform will facilitate the interaction of Authors of methodics and their sponsors as well as Entrepreneurs. Currently, to order a methodic from an Author, for example, to create an application, an Entrepreneur needs to undergo a number of bureaucratic procedures and pay taxes, and due to that, the cost of a methodic grows many-fold. A person who wants to sponsor an Author of a methodic also needs to go through bureaucratic procedures, and in case he/she and an Author are in different countries, their cooperation becomes not promising at all. At Human Discovery Platform, an Author of a methodic can create a contract for a sponsor (Backer) according to which part of received tokens from the used block will be transferred to him. An Entrepreneur will get access to ready-to-use API of methodics and expert community of trainers, coaches and other Authors of methodics that have practical experience and understanding of an audience's needs that will facilitate the launch of a product in the market.
In your opinion, how popular will your project be?
There are two big global trends based on which we assess prospects of the project as high.

Firstly, the main trend in self-improvement industry that grows by 6% per year in the US and makes $11bln is a reorientation to digital services and mobile applications. Integration of methodics for analysis of personal characteristics into services is a main challenge because it allows formulating personalized recommendations based on data collected about a user. And we make up for the existing gap between Authors of methodics and founders of applications that now do not have access to a large selection of such studies. The demand for personalized products will only grow: thus, for example, for 94% of millennials, self-improvement is a value (according to audit company Field Agent research). They also spend twice more money on self-improvement than baby-boomers.


Secondly, the value of data grows, as well as value of personalized and adaptive methodics of their development. Thanks to blockchain, the platform will accumulate a large scope of data about the personality of a person in a transparent, impersonal, and acceptable for verification format. And blocks will allow compiling complex systems of their analysis for any tasks.
How do you protect privacy of personal data?
An Author of a methodic decides whether data will be open or closed and will notify users about it. For example, to test a methodiс, he/she can create a free test and reward Consumers with HD-tokens in exchange for data. If an Author makes data open - he/she creates a statistically verifiable methodic. Data about users who do not want to share personal information will be stored in an impersonal format and used to check statistical issues.

Business model
What is your business model?
Consumers receive reward in the form of HD-tokens for providing data at registration. This will ensure the traffic of Consumers to the Platform that creates the ground for methodics and Products development. A Consumer will be able to either sell received tokens on the market or use them to pay for the use of the Platform Products. So we will provide Authors and Entrepreneurs with a client base. To prevent abuse with the amount of information provided by the Consumer, dynamic pricing will be introduced, taking into account the following parameters: a need for this particular information on the part of Authors of methodics, volume of data already transferred by a Consumer and compensation received by him/her for that, etc. For rapid distribution of Products on the market, we assume that its end users will be able to pay for them not only in Platform tokens but also in fiat currency.

Authors of methodics will receive HD-tokens for the execution of request for data processing by customers - they can be both Consumers and Entrepreneurs who decide to create a site or social network on the basis of a methodic. An Author of a methodic will also be able to create a contract for a Backer who wants to sponsor him, according to which a part of received HD-tokens from a used block will be transferred to a backer. Owners of Nodes will also receive HD-tokens for provision their resources to ensure the sustainability and availability of the system. So will the Executors - for carrying out various activities for the ecosystem participants. All economic conditions for cooperation between Authors, Backers and Entrepreneurs will be fixed in a smart-contract. On their basis and the volume of analysis request to the methodics, the smart-contract will distribute the HD-token received for use. Thanks to the Entrepreneur's deposit in HD-tokens with a minimum level, HD-tokens will be distributed among all interested parties via smart-contract. The presence of such a security deposit will give the Entrepreneur unlimited access to the methodics, and for the remaining participants of the platform provides safety and transparency of all transactions.

Due to the demand for HD-tokens, its cost will increase, but the price for processing the data request will be fixed in accordance with the fiat currency.
How much will it cost for a Consumer to make a full analysis of his personality according to all methodics?
The cost of getting through a methodic can be different, the number of methodics can grow. Everything depends on the scope and frequency of use. It can be one big test, or maybe a daily forecast. In addition, one product can have different access: basic is cheaper, premium is more expensive. An HD-token cost is a function of all these variables.
How will you attract Authors of methodics?
The same way we did when we were promoting GetCourse: We will go to famous people in various fields (psychology, astrology, human design) and invite them to create a final turnkey solution based on their methodic on partnership terms so that they do not need to immerse themselves in the mechanics of the process and that we can test all possible problems. This will be done prior to the decentralization of methodics storage at the MVP level. There we are going to make a centralized solution so that to test the exact mechanics of creating and localizing methodics and their mutual use. At this stage, we will need to address the implementation of methodics in real products, and we will partner with large websites (psychological sites, dating sites, horoscope sites, etc.) offering a simple implementation according to the type of referral program. After a number of leaders and implementations appear on the Platform, it will raise its recognition. We will involve services that implement methodics into final products, Authors of methodics who will see the possibility of earning, localizers. At this stage, we will make many tools for the monetization of methodics.
What is the role of blockchain technology in the project?
Blockchain stores data with results of analysis and scope of methodics at the same time. Every Author based on Human Discovery Platform can install a methodic into a system, having created a block for it. Big methodics are created by combining blocks: for example, if an author wants to translate his/her methodic, the Author can place a translation block in front of his/her methodic block. Blocks are like smart-contracts and are uploaded by Authors to the blockchain network and executed on decentralized nodes. Thanks to decentralization, the work of a methodic Author that sometimes lasts for years will not be lost due to the fact that a server may be closed. Blockchain not only offers possibilities for mutual use of methods but also solves the problem of trust: every use of a block creates a record in the blockchain system about incoming and outgoing data without connection with personal data so that analysis results will be transparent, impersonal and available for verification. It will be possible to accumulate the amount of knowledge about human behavior without being tied to any service.

Methodics on nodes will be stored in the form similar to the bytecode and will be protected from copying. It is assumed that to describe all methodics, no implementation of a Turing-complete programming language will be required. The analogue of Finit State Machine and language of work with tables will be implemented; a simplified analogue of what is available in Excel. Out of this, the majority of methodics can be constructed, and basic mechanisms will be fixed. It will allow building a model to calculate the cost of resources for storing a methodic, executing it and reward for those who compute nodes.
What do you have working already?
To test technical and economic models of Human Discovery Platform in practice, the Project Team has developed and launched HD.dating - https://hd.dating/. The basis for the service is the Human Design methodic, a self-discovery system that is being developed since the late 80s. The system includes the principles of quantum physics, genetics, astronomy and aspects of four esoteric systems: astrology, the Hindu system of chakras, the Kabbalah in Judaism and most of all the I Ching, the Chinese book of Changes. This combination of immense complexity is implemented in a simple interface: the user fills in a questionnaire, after which the system draws his personality map with recommendations about different spheres of life in the format of video lessons and offers friends according to compatibility. During the first month of HD.dating work, the audience of the service was more than 15k users.
Crowdsale
What is an HD-token?
Token of the Platform (HD-Token) is not an equity and does not give any rights to dividends or other Platform revenues. HD-Token is a software code with cryptographic elements sold exclusively as a product token of the Platform released on the basis of the Ethereum protocol. HD-tokens have functional usability only within the Platform framework, and their creation is conditioned by the need to develop the internal economy of the Human Discovery ecosystem that will ensure transparent and fair relations between the ecosystem participants. HD-Tokens are intended for use only for designated purposes. The number of opportunities for using HD-tokens may increase over time, including but not limited to adding new services and products available in exchange for HD-Tokens. HD-Tokens are designed for experts working with cryptographic tokens and software based on blockchain.
Why do you expect demand for HD-tokens?
HD-Token of the Platform is not an equity and it does not give any rights to dividends or other Platform revenues. With the Platform development and increase of number of its users, the market value of a token will grow due to the following reasons:
  • HD-Tokens are released one time and their amount is limited
  • All payments within the Platform are performed using HD-tokens
  • Authors and Entrepreneurs will purchase HD-tokens to launch methodics and Products on the Platform
  • Backers will purchase HD-tokens for mutual benefits in creating the methodics
  • End users will purchase HD-tokens to pay Products' cost and for discounts
How can Human Discovery tokens be purchased? (step-by-step guide)
  1. Register your account at my.hdplatform.io/signup.php
  2. You will be offered to create a private key to open your Web Wallet on the Waves blockchain. After that, you need to enter a phrase and click the 'create' button.
  3. Then send the money to your personal Web Wallet address.
  4. At the end of the sale of the tokens, you will need to enter the address of your Ethereum purse and check it. Within a month, you will receive tokens.
Do you limit your released tokens?
Yes, the number of HD-tokens will be set after distribution. 80% of all tokens will be sent to public buyers.
What kind of protection against drop in price do you offer?
A reserve of 5% of all raised funds will be made to maintain the price level after Token Sale completion. The reserve is valid for 24 months as of the moment tokens are distributed.
What is the way crowdsale will take place?
We target to raise $30 mln through crowdsale. Minimum cap is $500,000. 100,000,000 tokens will be issued, 80 000 000 of which will be distributed among participants through Toke Sale. Preliminary price of each HD token is $0,375. Upon ICO completion the $ equivalent of each token will be finalized by way of division of $ equivalent of funds raised to 80 000 000. Those participants who contribute within the first 24 hours will be awarded with 20% bonus in extra HD tokens in addition to allocated HD tokens. Those participants who contribute within next 48 hours will be awarded with 10% extra HD tokens . Those participants who contribute during next week after Token Sale will be awarded with 5% extra HD tokens. No other bonuses are planned any further. A reserve of 5% of all raised funds will be made to support the price level after Token Sale completion. The reserve is valid for 24 months as of the moment tokens are distributed.
Why should crowdsale participants trust you?
More than 1000 coaches and training centres work with GetCourse company. We have a good image in the industry. We are well-known entrepreneurs in Russia (local mass media writes about us, check Forbes Russia) - we are a real business that has provided services for more than 3 years, and there is name recognition. We have the reputation of a reliable and advanced provider of online education services. It's possible to communicate with us at international conferences. All information on the site is consistent with reality.
If I sent BTC to you, but Token Sale closed while they were on the way, what will happen to the BTC sent by me?
In this case, BTC is credited to the project wallet. After the actual Token Sale is completed, it will be returned to the sender's wallet in BTC at the current exchange rate without conversion. It means if 1 BTC is credited to the project wallet after Token Sale is finalized, 1 BTC will be sent to the sender's wallet without any binding to the exchange rate at the moment of sending BTC to the project wallet. In order to avoid such cases, we recommend setting a commission fee for the processing of the payment sufficient for prompt processing, taking into account the terms of Token Sale. A similar process will be with any other cryptocurrency.
What will be the maximum and minimum amount? Will there be bonuses, discounts?
The minimum amount is 500,000 USD. If the specified amount is not collected, we will refund all collected assets back to crowdsale participants' wallets.
When will there be payments on the bounty program?
Payments will be made within 30 days after Token Sale is closed.
How will you use the raised funds?
All funds will be used for the development of the Platform and its promotion. In June 2018, a centralized prototype of the system will be created, in which blockchain will be used only to calculate rewards to authors. Calculation methodics are placed on centralized servers. In December 2018, a decentralized model will be implemented in which the methodics will be stored and executed on nodes that will receive commission for processing requests. It will be possible to raise your node for any person who wants to earn tokens on this. In June 2019, we will commence saving results of the analysis used in blockchain. Saving results of calls will allow authors to make statistical confirmations of methodics and to accumulate datasets in the blockchain for further analysis. In September 2020, we will introduce BigData tools to analyze the results of methods. There will appear an open code to use the machine learning mechanisms in open data of methodics results stored in the blockchain. It will allow technical specialists to search for hidden relationships between the data of different methods to make hypotheses and to check them. There will also be a system for the calculation of value and weighting of methodics and separate blocks.

All funds will go to the development of the platform and its promotion. In June 2018, a centralized prototype of the system will be created in which the blocking unit will be used only to calculate the Authors' rewards. The calculation methods will be located on centralized servers. In December 2018, a decentralized model will be implemented in which the methodics will be stored and executed on nodes in a network built using the Proof of Stake algorithm. The method-blocks will be stored in the analogue bytecode. When uploading methodics into the blocks, Authors will spend HD-tokens in proportion to the amount occupied. In June 2019, HDCrowdFunding will be launched - a platform for Authors and Entrepreneurs who will be able to expose their idea to attract sponsors and subsequent distribution of income. In February 2020, HDStat Core will be launched - an opportunity for the Author to save the results of block analysis requests to the blockchain network to create statistically validated methodics. In September 2020, we will implement BigData tools to analyze the results of the methodics.
