G-nome

Description : 

Putting genomics on the blockchain. Much of our world is transitioning to using AI to detect mutations in our DNA to find out which genes cause which outputs, and then furthering it with how to cure diseases. But there are unsolved problems in this revolutionary field. Data that literally defines who you are, DNA, is insecure, providing many privacy concerns. Additionally, the data set is often skewed to urbanized, developed localities. So drugs that end up being found, cause unintended, sometimes harmful effects on people outside of the sample set. The price of gene sequencing is not the issue(as it is less than $100), rather, the technology available to relay the information to get to researchers is fragmented and insufficient. This causes the inability for people in foreign countries or rural areas to participate. BlockGene solves this huge problem in the world of gene-editing, by providing a interface to accessibly, and securely upload and transmit genomic data, providing the necessary privacy, while still allowing users to get paid for their contributions.

ArtVanGarde

Project : 

Alexa – Marcotta 

Description :

ArtVanGarde is trying to solve the problem where artists and art buyers could exchange physical art pieces at ease and with transparency using the power of blockchain. Each individual physical art work is represented by a non-fungible ERC721 token where it stores the hashed data of unique identification of the artwork, artist and the art certificate issuance information. The transfer of ownership of the art work contract address will be available in the blockchain to allow transparency in terms of transaction history. ArtVanGarde gives easier access and reduce the workflow and cost for how art pieces got traded.
