Recently, Encrypgen, LLC announced a Token Sale for its Gene-Chain Coin. The Gene-Chain is our private blockchain for science and medicine, allowing the searching and storing of genomic information with blockchain-enhanced security and privacy. While numerous databases already exist to capture genomic data, and to use it both in science and commerce, current schemes to accumulate and proliferate that data for use are insufficiently secure or open. The challenge is to create a secure database for use in both personal genomics and large-scale science, impenetrable to malicious hacking or other unauthorized uses, controllable and trackable for individual donors. “Blockchain” technology is the best technical means to achieve both aims and we outline below a model of a “gene-chain” database as a solution to both ethical and practical problems related to genomic databases.
The sole currency for transactions on the Gene-Chain (among those who wish to share information) will be Gene-Chain Coin (DNA). The Token Sale for DNA is underway. There are only 100 Million in the universe from now until the universe ends. 80 Million are up for sale before the Gene-Chain grows. It is already available for beta-deployment and we expect adopters very soon. We were featured in Forbes and NewsBTC in the past month, and the phone keeps ringing. The Gene-Chain is a hybrid blockchain, incorporating Ethereum and Hyperledger. You can read all about us by Googling us and visiting our website.
