Quantinar - a P2P knowledge Platform for data sciences

Wolfgang Härdle (HU Berlin, Germany)

Living in the Information Age, the power of data and correct statistical analysis has never been more prevalent. Academics, practitioners and many other professionals nowadays require an accurate application of quantitative methods. Yet many branches are subject to a crisis of integrity, which is shown in improper use of statistical models, p-hacking, HARKing or failure to replicate results. We propose the use of a peer-to-peer ecosystem based on a blockchain network, Quantinar (, to support quantitative analytics knowledge typically embedded with code in the form of Quantlets ( or software snippets. The integration of blockchain technology makes Quantinar a decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) that ensures fully transparent and reproducible scientific research.
