Has anyone heard of Luna DNA? I'm not sure exactly where I originally saw it, I think an ad on facebook.

Seems a little like the Harvard Personal Genome Project (PGP) and the new All of Us Research Program except for the paying part, which I guess they are using to entice people to join?

Never heard of either; will look into them.

That's what I like about this new one, they're willing to pay people to use their data instead of them getting rich off of it like 23 and me does. Now I remember, I was on google news, it linked to an article about it.

That was my first thought too - there are a lot of research projects that you can submit your DNA too, but generally you don't get much out of it except knowing your data is being used for genetic research and advancement.
