Crypto Applications

Voting

Secure and transparent election data for fair elections with verifiable results.

News

Transparent journalism with fact-checking incentive systems to avoid falsified stories.

Currency

Decentralized exchange of value for more secure and traceable transactions.

Supply Chain

Verified and transparent data to track goods throughout the entire supply chain instantly.

Real Estate

Secure, traceable records of ownership for stable and transparent land ownership documentation.

Healthcare

Secure medical records for patient-controlled interoperability between providers.

Energy

Peer-to-peer distribution of energy with incentives for more efficient allocation of resources.

Banking

Decentralized banking for faster, more secure transactions for everyone.

Content

Platform for fans to directly engage with and compensate creators.

Voting

Secure and transparent election data.

Election Data Security

Concern about the security of election data is preventing efforts to implement widespread electronic voting

Election data stored on a blockchain is almost impossible to hack, making voting information very secure
Vote counting & verification

Voting information is opaque, systems for verification of vote counts (with the exceptions of audits and recounts) are lacking

Pseudonymous voting data stored on a public blockchain could be made available online for anyone to see, allowing for anyone to verify election outcomes independently
News

Transparent journalism with fact-checking incentive systems to avoid falsified stories.

Trust in media

Fake news has created distrust between people and the media, making it difficult to spot fake news from verified, honest journalism

News stored on a blockchain could be verified using mechanisms for group agreement, allowing for false stories to be spotted and flagged
Currency

Decentralized exchange of value for more secure and traceable transactions.

Currency Manipulation

Centralized powers (i.e. governments) manipulate currency, which can be catastrophic if currency manipulation is not suitable for economic conditions

With blockchain, currency is not controlled by one power, reducing the centralized decision-making power
Traceability

Cash is difficult to track and record, leaving opportunity for illicit activities

With blockchain, currency is traceable and transparent
Supply Chain

Verified & transparent data to track goods throughout the entire supply chain instantly.

Complex supply chains

Supply chains are often complex global systems, which can be difficult and expensive to track (for both companies and consumers)

Systems for supply chain tracking using blockchain can verify, track, and store supply chain information for both companies and consumers to access
Supply chain transparency

Supply chain data is centralized, often stored by the company producing the good or service, leaving room for concealing information

Data stored on a blockchain can be decentralized, so no single party (one company or supplier) can change the data or conceal information
Real Estate

Secure, traceable records of ownership for stable and transparent land ownership documentation.

Trust in transactions

Lack of trust between parties purchasing and selling real estate requires third parties (title companies, etc.) to ensure transaction terms are followed through by both parties

Real estate transactions using blockchain could eliminate the need for a third party as the technology could securely execute the transaction only if the terms are met by both parties
Ownership documentation

Real estate ownership information can be difficult to verify, especially in regions with unstable governments (official land ownership documentation can be lost or destroyed)

Real estate ownership information stored on the blockchain is secure, immutable, and transparent, eliminating the need for third parties to store official ownership documentation
Healthcare

Secure medical records for patient-controlled interoperability between providers.

Medical Record Security

Medical records are vulnerable to security breaches, since providers store medical records in a centralized system

Patient data stored on a blockchain is almost impossible to hack because the information is not centralized, making medical records very secure
Record access & control

Records are not easily shared among parties (insurance companies, doctors, pharmacies) leading to inefficiencies (long wait times for approvals, doctors writing prescriptions not covered by patients’ insurance, etc.)

Medical records stored on a blockchain can be shared quickly and easily by patients, allowing them to control 1) who they share with 2) for how long 3) which parts of the record they share
Energy

Peer-to-peer distribution of energy with incentives for more efficient allocation of resources.

Efficient energy usage

Energy production and usage is inefficient and much of the energy produced is not actually used by consumers

Energy grids using blockchain could manage local demand and supply of energy in real-time, helping allocate energy efficiently and effectively
Banking

Decentralized banking for faster, more secure transactions for everyone.

Consumer Control

Centralized powers control the movement of money, rather than the individual who owns the money

Financial transactions on the blockchain are decentralized, giving individuals the power over their money
Access to capital

Banks often serve only the wealthiest communities and regions of the world, leaving developing regions with minimal access to capital

Since blockchain is decentralized, a financial system using blockchain can serve everyone, providing access to capital and a means to store money digitally
Content

Platform for fans to directly engage with and compensate creators.

Direct distribution

Fans consume content using centralized distribution channels, which compensate content creators only a fraction of the revenue they generate

With blockchain, fans consume content directly from content creators, who are paid directly for the content they create
Traceable engagement

Fans engage indirectly with artist and are not recognized for support (e.g., buying concert tickets, purchasing a t-shirt, etc.)

Fan engagement with content creators is tracked directly using blockchain and rewards are build-in to incentivize fans to continue engagement
