myGeNomeCoin(GNC) Generation

We initiate GNC to promote the use of genome data for society by creating a genome-based shared economy platform. The shared economy ecosystem will help secure vast amounts of genome data, which will be utilized to accelerate advances in medical and science technologies and industrial development.

Genome+Blockchain

Blockchain is most vulnerable in the areas where it intersects with the real-world, creating the ‘first-mile issue’. Genome information can make blockchain records capable of verifying both the authenticity and the truth of data.

myGeNome Colored Coin

Colored coin is a commemorative coin encoded with genome data of agricultural or fisheries products and can be distributed along the global supply chain. Eliminating the trust issue associated with the production and distribution of agricultural products, by leveraging immutability of blockchain, will create a new industry combining distribution and finance.

Public Interest of
"Precision Medicine"

The key purpose of GNC generation is to accelerate "Precision Medicine". GNC will only be used to provide “Free Genetic Sequencing” and incentives for those that partake in the further medical development.

GNC is free from regulations

The purpose of GNC generation is to create “DNA based open sharing ecosystem” which allows anyone to manage or improve their lifestyle using their own genome data. Individuals will be rewarded every time their genome data is used and be assured that their genome data will not be abused or accessed without their consent. Once meaningful amounts of genome data are collected, various sectors can come together to create a genome-based ecosystem. The ecosystem will attract both consumers offering their genome data and organizations from food, cosmetics, insurance, pharmaceuticals, medicine, research, and other areas.

Introduction | 마이지놈박스

All technical supports related to genome are provided by our partner Mygenomebox.
MyGenomeBox (The world’s first DNA based open sharing platform) was established in 2015, with spirit of challenge in response to changes in the current genome market and the potentiality for innovation and expansion of business to build a new genome based ecosystem that has not existed before.

O.P.P.A. Token

Another useful application of coin coloring occurs when you encode multiple tokens with identical metadata. Issuing a limited number of tokens in this manner, containing a famous star’s genome information the “O.P.P.A. Token”, would allow its use in marketing activities while preventing any potential controversies over copyright as such tokens cannot be created without active consent from the star and/or their management agency. Fans may want to own a token containing the genome of their favorite stars. They can then personalize the avatar, even though the token is loaded with the same base information. As O.P.P.A. tokens are issued in limited numbers, scarcity makes them collectible, pushing up the value.

Global Identification

“UN Initiatives, ID22” is to create valid IDs for 1.1 billion people around the world who do not have any government issued record of their birth status.

with myGeNome colored coin, the amount of balance in one’s stock, bond or bank accounts can be attached to a certain amount of bitcoin and transferred to someone else. Unlike bitcoin, that has no intrinsic value, colored coin is a method for representing and tokenizing real-world assets. In addition to proving ownership of real-world assets such as real estate deeds or car keys, colored coin can also represent and verify college diplomas, transcripts or personal identification records. The United Nations acknowledged that blockchain is the only viable method available for authenticating personal identification papers presented by refugees.

Trust | GenomeCoin

Blockchain is most vulnerable in the areas where it intersects with the real-world, creating the ‘first-mile issue’. How can real-world data be verified as correct before it is uploaded to a blockchain? As far as organisms are concerned, there is a solution. Genome information can make blockchain records capable of verifying both the authenticity and the truth of data. DNA testing is the best way to discern whether a tuna is real tuna or a calf is of a special variety.

Genetic information makes it possible to trust the agricultural or fisheries product while not necessarily trusting the farmer or the fisherman. Selected genetic information that distinguishes types of agricultural or fisheries products are encoded along with the producer’s information into a token on the blockchain network.

Using genetic data to promote social goals and a shared economy platform

GNC will serve as a catalyst for the genetic data ecosystem. But no matter how high the unit utility (benefit) to unit cost ratio becomes, the current genome sequencing market cannot reach equilibrium.

The market could reach equilibrium if genetic data owners are incentivized to share their information. This concept underlies the “sell your DNA” market approach. If economic incentives are not enough to motivate owners, then the call to action where users share in service of humanity and financial gain as provided by GNC may act as the catalyst needed for private subsidy of the public good from shared genome data.

Look beyond the coin price

MyGenomeBox has always focused on creating genetic information based management with all different industries to structure new industrial ecosystem. GNC generation is one of those activities to maximize the value of market participation and ensure transparent sovereignty of individual’s genetic information.

GNC are only used as an incentive for those that provide genomes for the public interest. Therefore, a connection for ecosystem is established where a virtuous profit is made between individuals and the public interest.
