Share on Facebook
European company CruisAIDer, which specializes in the digitalization of dental clinics, accepted Dentacoin as a means of payment starting Oct. 9.


Here are five key points:

1. CruisAIDer CEO Simon Sostmann said the company is looking at other ways it can integrate Dentacoin technology into the company's products, services and workflows.

2. The first blockchain solution for the dental industry, Dentacoin aims to make dental care more accessible. So far, two European dental clinics have accepted Dentacoin as an acceptable payment form.

3. Dentacoin is a type of cryptocurrency that aligns patients and dentists on patients' dental care and overall health. Dentacoin provides patients incentives to do a variety of tasks aimed at improving outcomes and the patient experience such as completing surveys, providing feedback and engaging in healthy dental habits.

4. Dentacoin Foundation started in the first quarter of 2017 and is developing various blockchain-based tools. Dentacoin has distributed 303 billion-plus coins so far.

5. Dentacoin Co-Founder and Business Developer Philipp Grenzebach said, "The CruisAIDer Powercart is of essential use to dentists, orthodontists and maxillofacial surgeons to optimize every aspect of daily routines in clinics and practices, in the meantime improving the patients' treatment experience. Having a partnership with yet another European company, which strongly believes in digitalization and efficiency only proves the strong potential and opportunities which lay ahead of Dentacoin."
