Cryptocurrency Will Boost Genome Sequencing @NebulaGenomics, a new startup that uses #blockchain to give people control of their own data

“A genomics startup co-founded by genetics pioneer George Church said yesterday that it seeks to lead the genomic data market by utilizing blockchain, the technology that underlies transactions of
cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin.
In other words, Nebula Genomics will give you cryptocurrency in exchange for your genetic data.
The company will do so by significantly reducing the costs of personal genome sequencing, give you insights about it, secure it using blockchain, and allow you to do whatever you want with the data.” “}}
