New Distributed Genomic Internet To Be Launched By Zenome In A Few Days

Zenome.io is a nonprofit organization which is working on applying the blockchain technology to personal genomics. Genomics is a technology spreading to many areas of human activity. It is widely used in medicine, biotechnology, agriculture, and the food industry. Genetic data grows exponentially, which can make genomics the primary generator of data on the Internet (more than Twitter and YouTube). The rapid development of genomics creates several problems that need to be solved: data storage, privacy protection, the possibility of conducting large-scale scientific research, and data sharing between different organizations and people.

We believe that the development of a distributed IT infrastructure based on a peer-to-peer network and distributed ledger technology (DLT) will solve the problems mentioned above.

Last year we were developing a new protocol stack and now we are ready for the launch of Zenome Network - the first decentralized genomic Internet (Internet of DNA). This network will solve the problems of secure storage and sharing of genomic data. The development of this Network will allow the conduct of joint research in the field of the human genomics.

We aim to create an extensible network suitable for storing and processing genetic information in a distributed computational process involving many nodes at the same time. In addition, there will be many services that should be running on the network, making it a market of genetic information with its own ecosystem and rich token economics (tokenomics).

The alpha testing of the Network is finished. The beta release is scheduled for September 17.

The full technical description of the Network is available at Zenome.
