Genobank is one of the blockchain projects that are in the focus of the cryptocurrency news today. As reports show, Genobank and other blockchain firms are working on a private testing app which would help people in accessing anonymous coronavirus testing.
The EOS news show that the app would be made in coordination with the EOS-based blockchain platform Telos. A recent announcement from the Telos Foundation also shows that the app will also allow users to share that information with healthcare organizations.
The open source app named Agerona stores the test data on the Telos blockchain, while Genobank will introduce a token that enables information sharing. In that manner, the app is expected to launch this month. According to some authorities, there is concern that undocumented workers and individuals living in countries without permission could avoid treatment or diagnosis over worries that they would be arrested/deported.
The blockchain firms are working on the project, and Agerona will facilitate purchases from partner test suppliers. Similarly, users can scan a unique barcode on each test and associate the results with an anonymous account on Telos controlled by the user.
Speaking of which, test kits for COVID-19 would then be sent to a partner lab for analysis, and the results will be anonymously uploaded to the Telos blockchain. If it is provided, the data will include the user’s country and postcode in order to track the spread of the coronavirus.
According to the CEO of Genobank, Daniel Uribe, the main mission is to provide people with a way to access coronavirus tests in a private and secure way. “People have the right to know if they have the coronavirus without violating their privacy,” he said.
Genobank and Telos blockchain firms are working on this project as the main companies leading this initiative. They initially partnered in order to develop the testing service for use in the United States, but the project now has contributors in the United Kingdom, Israel and Iran. Their hopes are to expand into more jurisdictions soon.
The project is also slated to develop a “mobile app for users, a processing interface for laboratories, a privacy-ensuring blockchain architecture, and sourcing and logistics solutions for low-cost COVID-19 tests and processing.” As the blockchain news now show, Agerona plans to soon launch another experimental feature where artificial intelligence (AI) based diagnostic tools will be used to analyze sound clips of people coughing.
