DNAtix, the Genetics Blockchain Company, Introduces Complete Genome Sequencing Pilot and Announces Token Sale
Anonymous DNA Testing, Transfer, Storage with Total Control of Personal Data
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, June 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital DNAtix Ltd., the genetics blockchain company, today announced the pilot of a breakthrough blockchain-based infrastructure and ecosystem for anonymous genetic testing, services and research. DNAtix is the first company to successfully transfer a genetic sequence over the Ethereum Blockchain. The DNAtix genetics ecosystem links individual users in the search of health solutions, or answers to ancestral questions, with products and services that fit their needs. DNAtix is also developing a dedicated Token - the DNATIX token - that will be integrated into the use of its DNAtix genetic platform.
"DNAtix is solving the privacy issue once and for all for testing highly sensitive DNA data with the first infrastructure blockchain ecosystem solution for anonymous genetic services," said Ofer A. Lidsky the CEO & CTO of the DNAtix. "Consumers, healthcare institutions, research centers, clinics, genetic counselors and others interested in using, testing, or gathering DNA data can now connect, work together for better health solutions and feel confident in sharing their genetic information."
Anyone can anonymously upload partial and/or full genome sequences onto the DNAtix platform; contributors own their genomic data and use it to make informed decisions.
Technology Breakthrough: An entire genetics ecosystem on the blockchain
Opening the door for advancements in research, new treatments, and cutting-edge personalized and preventive medicine, DNAtix's D2C platform provides full genome testing and access to services and solutions on the Blockchain and allows researchers to use anonymous DNA, stored on the DNAtix infrastructure, to create tests, do research and design new treatments.
In order to better leverage the emerging infrastructure and potential of blockchain genetic storage, DNAtix has developed and freely releases its compression algorithm for the mutual betterment of the field; Thus far, DNA storage efficiency has been increased by 300%.

MPP Global Bridges the Innovation Gap by Centralising Physical and Digital Subscriber Management and Billing in a Single Cloud Platform17.1.2019 12:29 | Pressemelding
WARRINGTON, UK, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MPP Global, the technology company that delivers eSuite, the world’s smartest subscriber management & billing platform, announces the launch of pivotal new functionality which enables media organisations to seamlessly create and manage the sale of physical subscriptions. This positions eSuite as the complete physical and digital subscription management solution. The development of this industry-first functionality was borne out of the common challenge for publishers when managing multiple systems for deploying bundled print and digital subscriptions. This is inflexible for publishers and limits choice for their customers, restricting the ability to seamlessly create and offer digital and print subscription bundles. Despite increased consumer uptake of digital subscriptions, print still accounts for almost 90% of circulation revenues globally. To drive reader revenues successfully, publishers require functionality to execute complementar
