Genomics is a technology spreading to many areas of human activity. Today, 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…

Zenome Platform via Zenome.io, August 23, 2018

First of all, Zenome team is ready to publish a new article about ZENOME NETWORK with the detailed description of our technology. In the beginning of the next week this article will be available for our community.

But before that, we decided to introduce you to the basic information, so you can read our article with a full understanding of what is going on here.

The existing problems of personal genomics [associated with the exponential growth of the amount of data] are aimed at creating an IT-infrastructure that allows free exchange of genomic…

1. Your business

1.1 What does Zenome.io do?

Zenome is a decentralized internet for genomic data. To understand the whole concept, it is necessary to discuss some of the “input” information.

Today, more than 10 million people have undergone DNA testing (array-based genotyping and sequencing, and more than 60 million by 2025 are expected).

Pharmaceutical companies need more genetic data to develop new drugs. This data is owned by drug companies.

FMCG companies (for example, Unilever) use genomics to create personalized products.

Scientific organizations need instruments for the protected sharing of personal and genomic information.

At the…

Dear holders and potential buyers of Zenome’s tokens.

About two weeks ago, the one year mark passed since the idea of the decentralized genomic Internet — Zenome arose.

Let me introduce to your attention Zenome’s first annual report.

Period: June 30, 2017 — June 30, 2018

The first genetic test with constant feedback on blockchain technology from the Zenome team

Now available to pre-order for 1000 ZNA-tokens


The Zenome team is pleased to announce that you can now get your personal genetic report on our platform. The test results will be available directly in the user’s personal account — wallet.zenome.io.

To store ZNA tokens you will need Ethereum wallet, compatible with ERC20 tokens.

MyEtherWallet is an online Ethereum wallet. So go to https://www.myetherwallet.com/

Past months Zenome team inspired many people to work more on solutions of genetic data processing and storing. We surely can define it as one of our goals to achieve — inspiring the scientific community to strive for even more innovative approaches. But the saddest fact is that all this inspiration ended up copying the Zenome’s work — from the project’s key idea to the structure of the whitepaper. All the scientist around the world know that respect to the work of your colleagues is important. If you consider another project’s idea as a good base for your own one…

Here we have small data analysis of Zenome main sale whitelist participants

Each participant could fill the form and tell us:

  • country of residence
  • number of tokens he/she is going to get
  • did she/he took part in Zenome pre-sale

We got more than 650 answers, some were duplicated, some contained no data about number of tokens, so after clean-up we had 601 data points. Here is the number of participants from different countries

The KYC procedure is necessary for everyone who wants to take part in Zenome token sale, because we adheres to global regulations.

Zenome Wallet makes the KYC procedure easy & fast. So, it won’t take much time for you.

There are two main reasons why Zenome is adding KYC. Firstly, the SEC(U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission) is preparing to prosecute Token Sales without KYC procedures. Secondly, cryptocurrency exchanges are beginning to exclude cryptocurrencies that did not implement KYC.

The KYC process has several simple steps. We decided to implement the Know Your Customer process ourselves. …
