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 scientic and medical technologies.

Zenome project The Zenome Platform is going to raise awareness on genomic medicine, so users can make conscious decisions regarding their data. To ensure that, the Zenome Platform is based on the following fundamental principles. Individual ownership of personal genomic information User has all rights for personal genomic data. Freedom of choice User decides how genetic information should be used. The right to share User may grant access to genetic data to a third party in a way restricting data copying. Privacy Encryption prohibits access to genetic data without an explicit user's permission. System Architecture Simply put, Zenome platform is a P2P network. Some nodes are resource providers that store and process genetic information. Participants, analysts and service providers connect to distributed network and interact with each other. Data exchange is secured through encryption and utilization of blockchain smart contracts. Zenome platform main actors: Resource provider provides storage and CPU/GPU power for a reward. Participant uploads individual genetic data, gets reports and possibly uses genetic services. Analyst works with genetic information (a data scientist or a scientific organization) Service Provider implements a user-space genetic service (possibly paid) on the platform. Genome Tokenomics It appears that the exchange of genetic information is of crucial importance. The prospective genetic market must ensure protection from possible misuse and genetic discrimination in particular. It is particularly important to maintain transparency and equal access to this market. Zenome aims at creating the personal genomics infrastructure, that would enable participants to: - Upload genetic information and take control of it. - Securely store own genetic information. - Make profit by selling access to genetic data or part of it. - Undergo genetic testing in exchange to the right to use genetic information. - Get individual dietary recommendations or personal training program based on genetic makeup. - Make use of other genetic services. The principal customers of genetic information are companies interested in genetic targeting such as Google, Facebook, Unilever and pharmaceutical companies. Inside Zenome Platform different types of information are inextricably intertwined. The nature of each type determines the way to store information of that kind. Financial data, which includes records of transactions, is stored on blockchain. Anonymized genomic data is stored on the distributed network. Participant's personal data is kept on their own computers only. Treating data of different kind differently provides privacy as well as scalability of the system. Since all data transactions, including buying and selling data, are governed by smart-contracts, interactions can only include balances stored on blockchains. Using any of pre-existing tokens for this purpose would result in unreasonable dependence on the valuation of external token. Thus, a separate utility token should be issued to power economic interactions on the platform. Utility Token A platform's utility token, ZNA (Zenome DNA Token), powers Zenome's decentralized economics. The token is used as an exchange unit in the internal ecosystem. Value of ZNA depends directly on the success of the platform.
