Dutch Government to Adopt Blockchain Platform in Battle Against COVID-19
An association of Dutch enterprises has unveiled the “Tech against Corona” efforts. Partaking companies will offer path breaking technologies, free of cost to Dutch government, to battle coronavirus disease.
Tymlez, a firm focused on distributed ledger technology (DLT), is one among the ten plus firms which have come forward to freely offer their solutions to the government.
Tymlez is providing its blockchain platform for the purpose of modeling “the medical goods ecosystem through a platform that matches supply and demand.”
The company’s blockchain will be utilized to guarantee openness throughout the supply chain, stopping voracious value retrieving, for instance price cheating during COVID-19 pandemic.
A few of the domestic enterprises supporting the efforts include cybersecurity company, Cybersprint, which is offering safety services to numerous hospitals, data protection company, Taxion, which freely manages online systems to arrange volunteers, and IT company, Compumatica, which will improve the internet connectivity of home based employees working in crucial service sectors.
KPN, Dutch telecom firm, will also collaborate with international IT giant, Microsoft, to offer computing solutions under the aforementioned efforts. Bitcoin (BTC) is also being utilized in the battle against coronavirus disease in Netherlands, with Dutch Red Cross receiving donations via its online portal.
The Italian Red Cross has also adopted crypto and raised roughly $20,000 in the form of BTC. The amount will be utilized to buy medical items, including a state-of-the art medical post for pre-testing of coronavirus infected people.
