Zenome – a decentralized market of genomic data and services

Introduction

The Zenome project is a decentralized blockchain-driven database of genomic information. This platform supports the possibility to manage your genomic data while maintaining privacy and ability to make a profit from selling access to different parts of the genome. It will establish equal conditions for drug development and for the progress of scientific and medical technologies.

The Zenome is a non-profit organization. Its mission is to provide platform’s economic growth and sustainable development. A non-profit status ensures that all the profit is channeled back into the organization’s activities and contributes to the token value.

The Zenome Platform is going to raise awareness on genomic medicine, so users can make conscious decisions regarding their data.
