The updated release reads:

EGGSCHAIN ANNOUNCES FIRST SPERM ON BLOCKCHAIN, NFT AUCTION INCLUDES OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE HISTORY

Eggschain Strategic Investor Stores Sperm on Patented Eggschain

One unique NFT Has Added Value for Winning Bid – First Publicly Available Sperm Account on Blockchain

Eggschain is the first patented supply chain system of its kind that combines blockchain and genetics to bring secure, transparent and professional grade information and data to individuals undergoing IVF. Late last year, Eggschain founder and CEO Wei Escala made history by storing her eggs on the blockchain, doing so through the platform she and her team conceived and created. Today brings another history-making moment for Eggschain, the first biotech healthcare company on the mainnet: Eggschain strategic investor Trevor Owens, Managing Partner of the Stacks Accelerator, has become first-in-the-world to store his sperm on blockchain through the platform.

“As an investor who does a lot of work on the future of blockchain, I’m very bullish on Eggschain and how it’s leading the charge to bring healthcare to a new era,” said Owens. “Fertility treatment is highly personal, yet until now, patients have had limited visibility and access to their data. I’m proud to be the first to store my sperm on blockchain to show that the age of patient empowered health has arrived.”

To mark the first sperm on blockchain, Eggschain is dropping one unique NFT in February or early March 2022 . The highest bid will not only secure an artistic expression of Eggschain and sperm, but also the first publicly available spot for his sperm on blockchain and a history-making moment of his own. His sperm must be stored in an Eggschain-approved clinic and logged onto blockchain through Eggschain within 30 days, or the spot may be taken by other patients.

“This idea was inspired by the increasing interest in NFTs as a means of expression and exclusivity, and a growing community around fertility treatments, for both men and women,” said Wei Escala, founder and CEO of Eggschain. “Ultimately, Eggschain was created to empower people undergoing fertility treatments with secure access to their data. The NFT auction is an opportunity to demystify fertility treatments, participate in crypto culture, and/or learn more about Blockchain and Eggschain.”

Please follow us on Twitter @eggschain and Linkedin (Eggschain, Inc.) for the exact date and location of the auction. Additional terms and conditions will apply to purchases of the NFT, access and use of the Eggschain platform, and any services or discounts received from related third parties.
