The EncrypGen Year in Review

In 2017, when we first began this journey, the idea of using blockchain to help secure and monetize individual genomic data ownership for research was still novel. We are proud to have paved the way for a flurry of imitators who have emerged since then. Few have persevered as we have to reach both the […]

The DNA Economy

When we first thought up the idea of the Gene-Chain, we had a grand conception of creating an entire economy. DNA, we thought, is the one thing every living human being has, and its value when found in less-advantaged populations may even be greater than in those found in the developed world.

As we perfect these […]

The Gene-Chain is Complete

Although the Gene-Chain has been open for business as a marketplace since Nov 2018 (we have already seen 100 transactions on it) and was functional for creating profiles as far back as April 2018, the final bits of functionality we have been striving for are now complete. Anyone can use their erc20 DNA tokens to […]
