April 23: Youtube AMA with Dr. Koepsell Highlights

Dr. Koepsell giving a monthly AMA to answer everyone’s questions, and bring the whole EncrypGen community up-to-date.

Bits and Bytes:

April 25th was National DNA Day! This is always an excellent opportunity to get the word out for EncrypGen and showcase its value!

The Cardano Catalyst program ends May 5th. (Although the timeline has been moved a couple times) They are evaluating a proposal from Dr. Koepsell to create a parallel Cardano version of $DNA. The Cardano Community Advisors will be voting on 134 different proposals.

Regardless of Catalyst vote outcome, the proposal has received great feedback and lots of exposure, so this is a win-win. It’s actually a really cool look into how large projects are able to adopt new technologies that are aligned with their own goals. The result will be posted on the Officially Endorsed Telegram Channel.

The consolidation of large genetic testing companies continues on. MyHeritage has now been acquired by SanFrancisco Partners. You can read the article here.

This consolidation of genomic and genetic data is also talked about in Stewart Southey’s Forbes article, The Great Wall Street Genome Gold Rush.

Looking Forward to May!

There’s always lots happening with EncrypGen, but as summer approaches, hopefully there will be some very exciting updates to share regarding EncrypGen’s partners in Africa. You’ll find it all here!

Until then, stay safe, stay healthy, and stay happy!

EncrypGen will revolutionize the sharing of genetic data between scientists, labs, and citizens by utilizing blockchain technology.
