Lab Ledger- New Airdrop on EOS - May 21 snapshot.
Based in Miami, Florida, the project started in 2018 by Jessie Laborn who wanted to created a blockchain platform that empowers intellectuals such as scientists.
David Gonzalez would also join as the COO and Figo Naude as the UI Designer.
aim is to create a platform that is a “one-stop-shop” for researchers, and for scientists can earn rewards, setup crowdfunding campaigns, follow their favorite researchers, and so on. 
As Gonzalez puts it:
“Simply put, we believe that scientific progress is currently being hindered by the inefficient peer review process.
Not only is it slow and very expensive, but it can also be extremely biased...
It is our conclusion that if scientists are financially empowered and better connected, we as a society will benefit greatly.
That’s why we we’ve worked so hard to build Lab Ledger, the world’s first blockchain ecosystem for scientists.
We believe that our incentivized post-publication peer review process takes scientific knowledge out of the hands of the monopoly that is the scientific journal market and puts it back where it should be.”
