Researchers Develop Blood Clot Test Based on Single Drop of Blood

The University of Washington announced that a team of researchers has developed a prothrombin time/international normalized ratio (PT/INR) blood clotting test that requires only a single drop of blood and a smartphone.  According to the team’s February 11, 2022 paper published in Nature Communications, the test uses a tiny cup containing copper, and a blood clotting agent that is attached to the smartphone below the camera, as shown in the figure below from the paper.

After adding a drop of blood, the smartphone vibrates, causing the blood to react with copper and the agent to form a blood clot, all of which is observed and measured by the camera.  A video of the device is here.

Blood clotting, also known as coagulation, is the process by which blood changes into a gel-like substance to prevent bleeding.  Excessive blood clotting within blood vessels can restrict blood flow, leading to serious conditions like deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolisms.  Blood thinners can reduce clotting, but patients must have their blood tested frequently to ensure proper dosage, as too much or too little blood clotting can be life-threatening.

Shyam Gollakota, a University of Washington professor and co-author of the paper, stated:

Back in the day, doctors used to manually rock tubes of blood back and forth to monitor how long it took a clot to form.  This, however, requires a lot of blood, making it infeasible to use in home settings.  The creative leap we make here is that we’re showing that by using the vibration motor on a smartphone, our algorithms can do the same thing, except with a single drop of blood.  And we get accuracy similar to the best commercially available techniques. … This is the best of all worlds — it’s basically the holy grail of PT/INR testing.  It makes it frugal and accessible to millions of people, even where resources are very limited.

The research team hopes its new test can be deployed in patients’ homes and resource-limited areas.  A public release of the team’s code can be found here.

Tower Finance Announces the Launch of Algorithmic Stablecoin: the New Holy Grail for Defi 2.0

Seoul, Korea, Feb 11, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Recently, Tower Finance is proud to announce the Launch of its Algorithmic Stablecoin. Algorithm-based stablecoins are new variants of cryptocurrency tailored for offering improved price stability. In the current market today, more and more users have taken interest, as it can also help in balancing the supply and demand of the asset in circulation.

Algorithmic Stablecoin Protocol, developed by Tower Finance, looks to offer considerably improved capital efficiency in comparison to collateralized stablecoins.

What is Tower Finance?

The Tower Finance is a Fractional-Algorithmic Stablecoin, soft-pegged to the U.S. Dollar, built on the Polygon network. The protocol plans to maintain TWR price stability by storing sufficient collateral in the time locked-smart contracts. The USDC is deposited into the protocol when a user mints TWR token, while the CUBE token, which is used for minting, is burned. When the user redeems TWR tokens, the protocol pays back USDC and mints the required amount of CUBE tokens. This allows arbitrageurs to help maintain price stability.

Aiming to solve the 'Stablecoin trilemma'

Tower Finance aims to provide a solution for the so-called 'Stablecoin trilemma' of decentralization, capital efficiency, and price stability by introducing TWR, its fractional-collateralized algorithmic stablecoin. Tower Finance aims to build an ecosystem that incorporates both collateral and high capital efficiency, hence developing stability.

By implementing a floating collateralization ratio, TWR not only maintains its peg in the most efficient manner possible, but it also captures value for CUBE holders and produces yield for its community of holders.

Implementing DeFi 2.0 through Protocol Owned Liquidity and Protocol Rented Liquidity

Tower Finance is the first algorithmic stablecoin protocol to adopt the 'Protocol Owned Liquidity' model introduced by OlympusDAO. While the structure is different, the underlying idea is similar. The protocol charges a penalty to users who terminate the vesting terms for the farming rewards. When this happens, the protocol uses 2/3 of the collected penalty for providing liquidity. Half of it is converted to USDC and used to provide liquidity. The leftover, which amounts to 1/3 of the collected penalty, is sent to the Profit Manager.

When TWR is minted with USDC and CUBE, the protocol doesn't immediately burn CUBE. Instead, 50% of CUBE is sold to temporarily create a CUBE-USDC LP to provide additional liquidity. We call this 'Protocol Rented Liquidity', because the meant-to-be-burnt tokens are borrowed for a short period of time to add liquidity to Tower's ecosystem until it is removed via governance decisions, in which case, the USDC is converted into CUBE and burned.

With a commitment for long-term sustainability yet a market fit, ultra high-yield/yield enhancement go-to-market strategy, it is perfectly destined to pave the way for stablecoin protocols in the era of DeFi 2.0

Tower Finance officially launches on Valentine's Day: 14th of Feb, 6:00am UTC.
