Shivom, a new blockchain project, was created to source and store genomic data to allow scientists to expand their research and come up with customized medicines that benefit those in need.

In order to prompt more users to donate their genomic data, Shivom has a reward system that offers them financial compensation, as well as access to the research that their data has been used in. This ecosystem of users is based on OmiX tokens, which can be traded online and internally stored. Due to this, the Shivom platform essentially functions as on open marketplace for researchers, who are able to benefit from the data collected and shared on the platform in a secure manner.
