The Lympo application is available for both iOS and Android and provides customers with a simple way to get rewarded for getting fit. Along with the incentives of data ownership, Lympo creates incentives through tokenized rewards. By participating in social challenges and documenting benchmarks, users can earn Lympo tokens, which they can exchange for products in the Lympo ecosystem. Jonušė, Chief Executive Officer of Lympo hopes this will have benefits at both a personal and a corporate level. Since the ICO, Lympo, has attracted 136,000 users, nearly 13,000 of whom are active daily, with over 1.6 million challenges completed. It’s already the number one fitness app in South Korea, and is partnering with major brands like Dallas Mavericks and Oxygen.

“We are thrilled to partner with Lympo to jointly sponsor daily fitness challenges and to offer token incentives via completion of select tasks on Lympo’s app and Shivom’s platform. Both organizations are focused on driving fitness and motivating individuals to make healthy lifestyle choices. There are considerable synergies as Lympo offers daily fitness challenges in a gamified manner while Shivom offers individualized healthcare products and services as well as the opportunity to monetize on the use of personal data for clinical research purposes. The partnership is also notable for the broader industry as two token projects converge for cross platform engagement and provide opportunities to earn and utilize both OMX and LYM native tokens — dynamics increasingly necessary for growing healthy token economies and ecosystems” according to Henry Ines, CEO of Shivom.

Shivom Releases Updated Marketplace, Enabling OMX Token Payment via MetaMask

Shivom

Shivom releases ‘Shop 1.5’ which provides consumers with unique incentives and the ability to purchase direct-to-consumer genetic testing products either by OMX token or fiat payment.

London, United Kingdom – May 23, 2019 – Shivom, a biotechnology data discovery and analysis company optimising the way DNA is shared, secured and analysed through blockchain and AI technology, has released its latest consumer marketplace ‘Shop 1.5’ along with additional updates to the user creation and login. This release will enable consumers with the ability to purchase genetic testings products either by OMX payment or fiat. Additionally, the team has made updates separating the login and creation for enterprise and consumer account and to the health and lifestyle questionnaire within the profile section.

The release will be live to the public at 12:00 pm GMT on 23rd May.  This is a major milestone for Shivom as it will not only enable consumers to purchase directly within Shivom’s marketplace via either OMX token or fiat payment but also bring mainstream partners to Shivom’s innovative blockchain eco-system.

The first group of partners featured on Shop 1.5 include Vitl, Living DNA and Chronomics, which provide ancestry, vitamin and cholesterol and epigenetic testing, respectively. Consumers purchasing any of these kits or services will need to agree to both Shivom and its partners’ terms of use and privacy policies.

At this time, customers are only able to purchase Chronomics epigenetic test with OMX tokens, whilst Living DNA and Vitl’s kits can be purchased with fiat via our partner’s checkout page. This allows users who don’t have tokens to be able to obtain their genetic data file and reports without having to buy tokens from an exchange. Customers who purchase with OMX tokens will receive an automatic email providing a voucher code.  This can then be redeemed on Chronomics website for one month’s subscription of EpiPlanner and a test kit. Please be aware, a minimum subscription of 12 months is required.

All of our D2C partners have undergone a thorough screening from our research and development (R&D) team prior to being granted promotional status within the marketplace. Shivom implements quality control procedures for its marketplace items and criteria which covers a variety of considerations to include data privacy, security and scientific quality (e.g., is a report evidence-based). When products or services are not supported by adequate clinical evidence, Shivom’s R&D team may request further evidence to support the potential partner’s case. Here is the link to our blog which provides an in-depth explanation of the reasoning we have for listing Vitl, Living DNA and Chronomics on our marketplace.

To mark this major milestone, for a limited time only Shivom is offering several exciting promotions. Customers who purchase either LivingDNA or Vitl kits and upload their data on Shivom’s platform will earn OMX tokens and also be eligible to receive special discounts or rewards on select products or services offered by Shivom and its partners (to be separately announced).

Additionally, for a limited time, only customers are also able to purchase Chronomics EpiPlanner Test Kit + 1 Month Subscription for only 1,000 OMX! That’s right, you read that correctly; for ~ $1 USD you can get your hands on this kit. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity!

“Today’s Shop 1.5 release stems from the collective hard work, focus and diligent efforts of our tech, science and business teams over the past 12 months. This release provides our early supporters with the ability to earn rewards for participating in our blockchain-based ecosystem and utilize either OMX tokens or fiat to procure top of the line kits from our curated product offerings. Once on our platform, consumers will not only have control over their data and be able to gain considerable health and wellness insights but also have the ability to participate in clinical research and even monetize on personal data if desired. We’re proud of early progress and also look forward to our upcoming MVP release, which will mark another significant milestone and showcase the first cut of our enterprise solution offerings and clinical functionalities.” said Henry Ines, CEO of Shivom.

Here’s How Shivom Chooses it’s Marketplace Partners

Shivom

This week, Shivom will launch its first iteration of our direct-to-consumer health management marketplace.  In this post, we will be providing information to the community and prospective partners about how we determine which products and companies are listed on our platform.

Shivom’s mission is to not only optimize how DNA is shared, secured and analysed but to bring exponential value to our end-users. With this mission comes the responsibility to make some pretty tough decisions through and through. One of these decisions is choosing which companies Shivom would want to interact with within our eco-system. When our team started working on ‘Shop 1.5’ Shivom understood that we shouldn’t strive to be just a marketplace promoting every type of genetic testing product we could get our hands on. This business model not only has problems with scalability but additionally lowers the quality or value we bring to our audience. For these reasons and many more, our team developed quality control and criteria which are used to decide which partners should be able to gain entry to the marketplace.

The first part of our review is about companies’ data privacy and security policies. The first question we ask is, do you share data with third-parties? The second question we ask is, do you sell or utilise the user’s data in order to generate revenue? If the answer is yes to either one of these questions, straight off the back the company would be eliminated from being able to join our marketplace.

In the second part of the review, our team will determine the quality of the report and determine whether it brings any value or if it is B*** S***. A Great example of this is when I recently saw on a competitor’s website that they were sequencing a user’s DNA in order to find out what kind of t-shirt looked best on them (v-neck or crew).

The third part of our review is whether the product and or company brings value to the eco-system. For example, if someone recently purchased Living DNA’s 3-in-1 Ancestry Kit they might also be interested in learning about their nutrition and cholesterol. Instead of having to purchase an entire kit we look at products which allow people to use their Raw Genetic data gained from the Ancestry KIt instead of having to re-swab, prick or take a faecal sample all over again. Additionally, we are also looking at which products are complementary to each other and could go hand-in-hand

In case you were wondering what the reasons were for choosing Vitl, Living DNA and Chronomics for our first iteration, I’ve included below an in-depth explanation.

Vitl
Vitl products not only have a high rate of positive customer feedback (e.g. 91% of customers rated Vitl products as ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot), the team is comprised
of experts in their field; such as geneticists, nutritionists who understand the science and the practical aspects of healthy nutrition. Vitl uses the latest innovative technologies, such as; artificial intelligence. Additionally, the company uses credible vendors and laboratories for their tests(e.g. UKAS-accredited and CQC-registered blood testing facilities) as well as Illumina CSPro Certified Service Providers in Europe and the USA for DNA testing. Whilst other brands may test for a larger number of less well-researched traits, Vitl emphasizes quality over quantity. They only cover traits based on the strongest, peer-reviewed evidence to ensure users are getting the most reliable results.

Lastly, similar to Shivom’s philosophy of combining different omics technologies to gain insight, Vitl enables the integration of DNA data alongside blood and dietary results and lifestyle information. This is important because supplement recommendations or lifestyle advice cannot be made on DNA information alone, but taken alongside current blood vitamin levels and diet that are measured in a longitudinal way.

Living DNA
Living DNA launched back in 2016 as a collaboration of more than 100 scientists, researchers and genetic experts. We added Living DNA as a partner to our ecosystem because they provide precise ethnic estimates of ancestry testing. The 3-in-1 test covers the biggest number of genetic populations, which translates to the most accurate genetic percentages and offers unrivalled worldwide regional and sub-regional detail. The test incorporates three separate tests in one, giving the customer more for their money than any other ancestry tests on the market right now.

Additionally, instead of just getting your basic family ancestry (autosomal DNA), you also get an analysis along your mother line (derived from mitochondrial DNA) and your father line (derived from the male-specific y-chromosome). Living DNA is a holder of ISO:27001 certification, which demonstrates good protection and security for personal and genetic data. As DNA samples are only connected to unique ID numbers, not even its staff members will know the identity of its users. The company works with “Show Racism the Red Card,” a group that fights racism to provide a safe space to reduce racist ideas and attitudes. Lastly, Living DNA provides the raw data of all test results which can be used on the Shivom precision medicine platform to foster research and fight rare diseases.

Chronomics
Epigenetic testing is relatively new to the direct-to-consumer testing market. We partnered with Chronomics because of their impeccable experience in this field. Our CSO, Dr Axel Schumacher is one of the many pioneers of epigenetics and worked alongside some of the Chronomics team members.

Epigenetics is the study of changes in organisms caused by modification of gene expression rather than alteration of the genetic code itself. Epigenetic testing offers additional value to genomic testing, in particular, allowing individuals to analyse how environmental and lifestyle choices affect the body and how these patterns change over time. By monitoring epigenetic patterns, it is possible to collect actionable insight allowing for a personalized improvement plan. Most importantly, Chronomics provides users with the ability to gain access to their raw data which can be managed, stored and monetized on Shivom.

Epigenetic

Shivom Adds Chronomics to the Marketplace, Offering Customers Epigenetic Testing with OMX Token Payment

Epigenetic

Chronomics EpiPlanner Epigenetic Test will provide Shivom’s customers with lifestyle and environment indicators to reveal an overall picture of your health.

London, United Kingdom – May 20, 2019 – Shivom, a biotechnology data and analysis company optimising the way DNA is shared, secured and analysed through blockchain and AI technology, has teamed up with Chronomics, an online health services company which helps you understand how your environment and lifestyle choices are impacting your body and mind at the level of your DNA; to offer Chronomics EpiPlanner Epigenetic Test within Shivom’s marketplace. Through this affiliation, Shivom’s customers can discover lifestyle and environment indicators to reveal an overall picture of your health.

Epigenetic

Through a simple saliva test kit, the test will measure an epigenetic marker called DNA methylation, which can shift with environment and lifestyle. Customers who get the kit can log onto a web portal to find out their “biological age” — a well-established metric built on research by Chronomics in-house scientists. Scientists refer to biological age as to how old a person seems. Currently, the most accurate way to measure biological age is with epigenetics. This means that your age is NOT just a number. Your age is whatever you choose to make it.

For a limited period of time, Shivom plans to offer customers who sign up for Chronomics’ services or purchase other newly listed DNA products on Shivom’s marketplace with unique incentives ranging from token rewards to discounted reports and genetic counselling sessions via Shivom partners and affiliates. “In addition to recently added Living DNA ancestry and Vitl’s Vitamin and Cholesterol Blood Test Kit, we are now also pleased to offer Chronomics’ pioneering Epigenetic Test Kit, which will provide our customers with insights on their metabolic state, biological age and overall health as a result of diet / lifestyle choices and exposure to pollution. Notably, as the first consumer testing kit of its kind, Chronomics’ Epigenetics kit will also be able to be procured via OMX tokens. This is a very exciting development not only for our ecosystem but also for the broader blockchain & crypto industry.” Says Henry Ines, CEO of Shivom.
