I just thought of a use case for blockchain

I’m sure there could be projects out there similar to this, so I’m sure I’ll get flamed for this post, but in the scientific/medical research world it’s hard to believe what any papers real motive is. For Example: Is this drug really harmless, or was the research funded by a pharma company? I come from the scientific world and it’s come to a point where I don’t believe peer reviewed scientific journals anymore due to the massive amount of corruption (the group who paid for the research want the outcome to go a certain way, otherwise funding is cut).If there is a distributed and transparent system for funding scientific research, where the money can be tracked and validated, I think this is going to be HUGE for research. For example, for tax reasons many people need/want to make donations. They could donate to this fund, and be 100% sure of where the funding was going and grants them access to vote on which topic/field of research the funds would be utilized for.
