L'utilizzo della Blockchain per una migliore riconciliazione e condivisione dei dati è una proposta di valore convincente per questo settore. Le possibilità più creative e dirompenti vanno oltre le semplici transazioni finanziarie - Accenture
"Ein kritischer Mangel an Blut hat die Absage von elektiven Operationen in Los Angeles, Philadelphia und Atlanta gezwungen", sagte das amerikanische Rote Kreuz heute. Sowohl das Rote Kreuz als auch die amerikanischen Blutzentren (ABC), die praktisch alle US-amerikanischen Blutbanken repräsentieren, berichteten über schwere Engpässe zu einer Jahreszeit, in der die Blutversorgung in der Regel ausreichend ist.

El año pasado, Spotify no pudo obtener licencias mecánicas (control del titular de los derechos de autor sobre la capacidad de reproducir un trabajo musical) para muchas canciones en la plataforma. Esto perjudicó a los editores y artistas de música. ¡Spotify tuvo que pagarles más de 20 millones más una multa de 5 millones!

“[Online] voting imposes extremely stringent requirements on the security of every aspect of voting. We believe that the Blockchain technology is the missing link in the architecture of a viable online voting system.”
Despite the digitalization of our society in so many aspects, the voting is still done on paper. This yields several inefficiencies, such as increased costs, possibilities to vote more than once, and even transparency issues and frauds.
Cyber voting might sound pretty cool. It would save us more time and be more cost-effective. No endless queues, no accusations of fraud. It might even increase the voter turnouts. You could quickly just use your phone or a computer to vote, and that would be it. Even though this sounds pretty easy, it is very difficult to put in practice, mostly because of the danger of cyber-attacks. This might obviously make the whole election illegal. Our defense systems are not secure enough to prevent hackers influence the results of an election.
The solution to this problem can be found in blockchain technology.
As digitization reshapes the industry landscape, traditional telco operators are being challenged by decreasing revenues and increasing costs. The need to reduce costs, drive new revenue streams and make their digital services more competitive is at the top of their “to-do” list in order to survive! So, what’s next?
Telco operators are starting to see new solutions to fulfill their needs in Blockchain technology! Indeed, major worldwide telcos such as Orange and Verizon are increasingly investing in blockchain by entering into partnerships and devoting funds to it, with the ultimate goal to reimagine their business and create innovative offerings for their consumers.
In Jordan’s Azraq camp, 10,000 refugees are now able to pay for their food by means of entitlements recorded on a blockchain-based computing platform. This was developed by WFP as part of a pilot known as ‘Building Blocks’.
“A critical shortage of blood has forced the cancellation of elective surgeries in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Atlanta, the American Red Cross said today. Both the Red Cross and America’s Blood Centers (ABC), which together represent virtually all U.S. blood banks, reported severe shortages at a season when blood supplies are usually adequate. “
“Music is the weapon of the future”… and blockchain is the trigger.
Big streaming audio services had taken a huge piece of the pie, leaving artists with few crumbs, less control over their work and little knowledge of those who interact with it. The business had become so complex and powerful, so concentrated, that musicians like Taylor Swift and Jay-Z had taken themselves off of Spotify, which is not an option to all artists…
However, the time has already come for the whole music industry to collaborate on a healthy, sustainable, and frictionless ecosystem which benefits everyone in the value chain. I do want to listen to music that is made and given to me this way.
