German government completes proof-of-concept
There was a POC that was done on March 26 2019, after the German government finished a proof-of-concept for a blockchain identification system. This concept took use of the Blockchain technology to manage refugees asylum processes according to the report.
This will introduce a new way for the blockchain and immigration to be able to form partnerships. As technologies like the Blockchain will disrupt the selling of Visas as well as having a huge impact on the post-Brexit and Europe segregated processes.
In the published report was suggested in the whitepaper that the blockchain technology will be able to improve asylum processes with refugees.
The blockchain goes beyond borders
PoC was conducted in the first half of 2018 between the BAFM Fraunhofer FIT and another partner whose name was not mentioned. The group was focusing on two major Blockchain applications. One of which was the creation of reliable and accurate digital identity for refugees in Germany. The second was on the improvement of the communication between authorities at the municipality, state and national levels. This study was made using the Ethereum blockchain.
Through the use of the blockchain, the group was able to create digital identities, for the refugees whom arrived in Germany without any means for identification. According to the reports there were Biometric data that was taken and stored away in order to make sure that the information was correct and accurate. The data was handled very carefully and was consistently allocated to each refugee.
After the study it was decided that the use of the Blockchain technology to create a digital identification system will have positive effects on Europe and Brexit as whole.
According to reports coming from the paper:
“Blockchain could be the digital enabler of European federalism in the asylum context.”
Personal data protection laws that are currently in place could pose some challenges for the rapid implementation of these applications. Making more institutions be able to take a deeper look into the blockchain technology applications.
what is your option of these developments happening with the Blockchain technology? Feel free to leave a comment down below.
