"Others are working on solutions that could help genetic research co-exist with true genetic privacy. One promising option may be blockchain, a complex technology often used to safeguard digital financial information, notably for the digital currency bitcoin. Blockchain is considered so reliable and hack-proof that the U.S. military’s research arm—the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA—is looking into how it could be used to guard nuclear secrets.

Encrypgen, a new software firm, aims to apply blockchain technology to store genetic data securely; Genetic Alliance, an umbrella group for patient-advocacy organizations, and Global Alliance for Genomics and Health, a data-sharing network that connects genetic researchers around the world, are also looking into it. A “private” blockchain might give multiple, far-flung researchers access to a wealth of genetic data without making that data vulnerable to hacking."
