    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.

    Description :
    Reg-A-Star is a civil registration tool, intended to provide biometric birth registration services to areas where access is limited or non-existent . By having everyone’s birth registered, the goal is to prevent human rights abuses such as child marriage and under age conscription into the military because the system will be able to provide the true age of the children. In the future, the system could be scaled to capture other metrics such as medical records or government benefits. The proposed architecture includes a distributed ledger built with Hyperledger Composer leveraging PoET consensus to store unique, encrypted, system-generated person IDs. In addition, a mobile compatible client application will generate IDs linking the transaction to the ledger and fingerprints to the off-chain IPFS. The platform is designed to be modular, with the prospect of referencing additional data in the future, such as vaccination records, education histories and proof of property ownership. Separating personal data in this way adds a level of security over current registration systems, as each record will only ever hold a reference to the encrypted person ID, and no easily readable personal data. Even data such as Name and Address will be stored separately and optionally.

    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.

    Description :

    This platform intends to increase awareness and transparency about rape kits that do not get tested in labs, and ensure the kits are traceable and secure during the DNA testing process. Blockchain technology provides a huge opportunity for officials to be held accountable and victims to be aware of what stage of processing their data is currently at.
