Open science on the blockchain

At Frankl, our mission is to make open science easy and rewarding. Frankl apps integrate blockchain into the scientific workflow. Frankl tokens incentivise data sharing.

Frankl for cognitive assessment

Our first project is cognitive assessment in autism.

All autistic people find social interactions difficult. But beyond that, there’s huge variation in cognitive abilities such as language, memory, and reasoning skills. To understand autism and help autistic individuals, scientists and clinicians need to accurately assess these abilities and share their results safely and securely. The Frankl solution involves three key components.

App platform

iPad- and Android-based apps fairly assess the true abilities of autistic children and adults.

Blockchain integration

Blockchain integration within apps allows secure, ethical data sharing in science and clinical practice.

Token economy

Apps accessed via Frankl token micropayments challenge the current model of high upfront costs for paper-based tests.

Frankl in motion


The Frankl team supports every aspect of this cycle to promote open science outcomes


Users exchange Frankl tokens (FL) for faster, cheaper, more accurate cognitive assessment apps


Researches access a growing pool of reliable, standardised data generated by app users; publish better results

Better Outcomes

Clinicians & educators map pathways to better cognitive outcomes for the individual; track their progress via Frankl apps

Enable sharing

Open science platforms enables data sharing between users & engineers; accelerates app iteration

Network Growth

Frankl network grows as a wider range of apps, participants and data become available

Reduced Cost

Frankl network grows as a wider range of apps, participants and data become available
