Patients’ and health care providers’ data are separated by a complex network of relationships between jurisdictions, professional services, specialists, and other providers. And this is before a global pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic revealed even bigger inefficiencies in the healthcare system. Health data is stored in institutional, siloed databases that can’t communicate with each other and are inaccessible to individuals and other stakeholders. Specifically, traditional healthcare systems do a poor job sharing patients’ health records across channels and have a slow response registry for medical professionals. To better illustrate, here are some examples: If a primary care doctor prescribes a medication for an allergy to a patient, that data will be stored in their database. But, when the same patient needs to go to the emergency room for surgery, the hospital will need to know the patient’s health record including any medication they are taking and allergic reactions.

How Cardano uses significantly less energy while maintaining the same level of security as Bitcoin. Similar to how a car engine makes the car drive, and different engines make the car more or less efficient, the same could be illustrated for cryptocurrencies. A cryptocurrency’s engine is its consensus protocol. A cryptocurrency’s blockchain is distributed, meaning there is no single entity that controls the network. Instead, it is spread across nodes who verify transactions. Consensus protocols make sure every node is in consensus (i.e. agreement) and that the information on the blockchain ledger is correct. Here, we are going to take a fresh look at consensus protocols with our sustainability hats on! Most Common Consensus Protocols: Proof of Work and Proof of Stake. There are two most common types of consensus protocols, proof of work (PoW) made famous by Bitcoin, and proof of stake (PoS) made famous by Cardano’s Ouroboros.

Emergency identification and financial inclusion for refugees and disaster victims through blockchain. image3840×2160 250 KB Imagine having to flee your home country to avoid conflict or persecution. A nightmare reality that millions of people face. In 2019, the number of refugees under UNHCR’s mandate rose to 20.4 million. An additional 5.6 million registered refugees are in an estimated 60 camps across the Middle East. In all the chaos, refugees are lucky enough to have time to pack a bag with their family’s identification credentials. Birth certificates, national ID cards, passports, residence permits, or even a driver’s license are often necessary to prove who you are to the authorities. Unfortunately, many people either don’t have the time or means to bring with them proper identification. The Norwegian Refugee Council claims that 70% of Syrian refugees lack basic IDs. Upon failure to provide appropriate documents, the already nightmarish scenario becomes much worse.
