Smart contracts constitute a novel privacy-by-design tool and critical pivot point around which a larger system of technologies and policies may be symbiotically developed to help protect sensitive digital phenotyping (DP) data, guided by ethical concerns for individual patient rights and future impacts. This research will systematically identify ethical and technical challenges as well key opportunities for near-term collaboration toward the responsible development of patient-led smart contracts to enhance transparency, patient control and self determination over how DP data is shared. This study is thus responsive to the vision of NIH to foster collaborations that can modernize biomedical data ecosystems using the latest data science technologies
