Faced with a difficult situation in which the whole world found itself due to a pandemic COVID-19, a way out of the crisis began to be seen in modern technologies. Work is currently underway on entering special certificates in the block chains that would confirm the safe return of employees to their jobs. Such a solution is to ensure data protection and user privacy at the same time, and British fintech undertook its implementation Billon.
Billon creates a tool to combat the effects of COVID-19.
A company based in Great Britain Billon Group received a grant of 50 pounds to design an application that would support the so-called Return to work certificates after the COVID-19 pandemic. It is to be saved to blockchainie.
According to announcements, Billon is expected to present his new tool by the end of August, which will be used to publish, share and verify documents confirming the acquisition of relevant knowledge by employees and their resistance to COVID -19, although it is not yet entirely certain whether its determination will be possible.
The solution, before it finally enters into force, still needs to undergo a series of tests in which the company's partners will be involved.
As representatives of the Billon group assure, it is involved in safe defrosting of the economy. Thanks to the solutions being developed, many employees will be able to return to offices with the highest possible level of security. The new tool is to be the answer to three main problems related to defrosting the economy in a pandemic, which are: ensuring safe working conditions, guaranteeing data privacy, data transfer excluding physical contact. Blockchain technology seems to be the ideal solution in this case.
Who is the new solution being created for?
Both public institutions and the private sector will be able to benefit from the new solution that Billon is working on.
Certificates, which will be written in block chains will be a kind of a pass to return to work. They are supposed to contain information about the employee receiving appropriate training or medically proven resistance to COVID-19.
The certificate will allow the employee to return to work safely. Moreover, they will be updated on a regular basis, for example as a result of new medical recommendations. The use of blochchain technology will ensure adequate privacy protection.
Saving documents in blockchain structure is becoming more and more popular.
In Poland, such a solution is used by, among others Tauron, Credit Information Bureau, Syneriz and the Polish Section of IEEE.
