    PROJECT PROPOSAL WELL PRESENTED

    This is a project that requires technical care. And certainly this project will not be easy to implement. The team proposing this project is quite large, and it seems that the project proposal team will have enough professional skills to implement this project in the best way. But in my personal opinion, I think the technical elements in this proposal should be explained more clearly to help the community have a more thorough view of your plan, from there the project proposal team can absorb more diverse opinions, and run the project perfectly. I really like the way you presented this project, detailed and clear. Hope your project is a success.

    Efficient use of capital

    Reading this proposal, I was quite impressed by the professional presentation and specific details. It confirms the team's focus and desire in writing and implementing the proposal. I am satisfied with the way the team presented the proposal. The possibility of existence is always great if the team is willing to update technology and listen to opinions from the community to gradually improve. In addition, I have a few more unclear opinions about the efficiency of capital use:
    - The total amount of capital requested is $100,000. When the team applies the proposal in practice, will it bring the right value to the allocated capital?
    - Does the team intend to establish a reserve budget?

    hi Trixie, 
    thank you for your thoughtful review. 
    100,000 is a proposed cap on the work being proposed and we're looking to distribute that to scale with the team along the value chain. 
    we're looking to have a small reserve after the human trials to put into finalzing the papers and publishing in the right areas. 
    we'll then leverage this study to go further and look into funding in both Rejuve and Sentience

    HI Max, 
    thank you for your thoughtful review. 
    This should take devs around 3 months and the human trials we do need to plan out in the phases but should be done between 2-3 months. 
    Wrap up would be about another 5-8 weeks so a total of 7-8 months until final publication of the study.
