The idea of DeBio was first conceived in December 2020. Development then started at the beginning of January 2021 in parallel with our first seed funding round with friends and family. We continued the development process until the end of February when we entered as a competitor in a hackathon at a leading blockchain conference ETHDenver.
DeBio (previously named Degenics) was named Winner for Best IPFS Use for Identity, and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) winner for its fully anonymous DNA testing marketplace.
In March of 2021, we began the research and development of our escrow feature until the end of May when we released our first para chain on the Octopus Network test net. May was also the month we began our second seed round, resulting in an investment of USD 250,000.
In June we started the development of our second product DeMedical. This feature enables users to upload their electronic medical records. We also plan to have our third strategic round followed by our final investment round in July.
TGE and listing will be in July parallel with the development of our data marketplace and will continue until August. The NFT Launchpad is planned to be in August, and from then on we plan to continue to integrate our services with one of our partners, KILT.
In 2022 we plan to further develop our marketplace. With an expansion to onboard more users and labs. Along with additional B2B collaboration exploration.
