This is so relevant! I definitely don’t want big companies (ie. insurance companies ) snooping at my Dna.

@jorge_rybar We could not agree more. There are big benefits for humanity in responsible DNA data sharing, such as medical breakthroughs, but it becomes dangerous if people do not explicitly own and control their human data.
I like the idea of being able to keep your DNA data private. In fact, I feel it’s critical. I just bought a kit and I’m really impressed by the packaging, branding, etc. I also started one of the very first consumer genomics companies in 2005 and I really like what Genome Buddy is doing. Watch this company!

@adrian_salamunovic Thank you Adrian! Please let me know if you have any feedback on the experience, if you find any bugs/improvements let me know and we will implement them ASAP. How has consumer genomics changed from when you started?
It says you are using the blockchain to store the data securely. How so, what blockchain, would like to know more details on this aspect. Thanks!

@anderskitson Great question. GenomeBuddy is using a modified private version of the ethereum blockchain to hold the encryption/decryption keys. The user holds the private keys. The keys are used to decrypto/encrypt information that is stored on IPFS. We plan to make this more decentralized in the near future with a network of masternodes and by allowing the community to host nodes. Please let me know if this answers your questions. Thank you!
One word: FINALLY :) Privacy was my biggest hesitation with companies like 23andMe.
