    Research: MIT Technology Review: This new company wants to sequence your genome and let you share it on a blockchain

    EXCERPT

    Cryptocurrency in exchange for your genetic data! Sounds a bit like a scam, but it's the premise behind a new company founded by a leading geneticist. Nebula Genomics says it plans to sequence your genome for under $1,000, give you insights about it, secure it using a blockchain, and allow you to do whatever you want with the data.

    Nebula is the brainchild of geneticist George Church, PhD student Dennis Grishin, and graduate Kamal Obbad, all from Harvard. Mirza Cifric, CEO of Veritas Genetics, which offers a genome-sequencing service for $999, is a founding advisor.
