Vottun Unleashes Secure, Independently-Verifiable, COVID-19 Test Results via Blockchain Technology
Tim Draper-backed Blockchain company Vottun has published a new secure, independently-verifiable COVID-19 test result platform utilizing blockchain technology. The platform will offer real-time health verification for workers and people attending sporting events after the COVID-19 lockdown.
Following the introduction of the Californian bill that approves the usage of blockchain-based technology to offer verifiable credentials for medical test results (including COVID-19 antibody tests), Vottun has issued a full platform that enables issuers, including public entities, to issue COVID-19 test results to individuals based on the W3C verifiable credentials standards with decentralized identifiers (DIDs) per the AB-2004 Medical test results bill currently passed in California. As the availability and easy access to COVID-19 testing advances, Vottun is assisting the return to a healthy life through the reopening of universities, sporting, and live music events.
COVID-19 has brought the sporting world to a stop. Matches have been suspended, venues have closed, and international events canceled. The impact is prophesied to cost the sporting world at least $12 billion. Vottun technology can be utilized to bring these events back safely.
Utilizing data from medical labs, Vottun securely encrypts de-identified test results. With different credentials, workers and employers can view the data through a mobile app and get real-time verification about individuals’ health status. All the processes comply with HIPAA and are simple to use, with no training needed. The verification then suggests people can be carefully approved to enter sports premises, and no time is spent waiting for third-party confirmations. The solution also involves contact tracing and a health questionnaire that can be utilized as a pre-evaluation tool before testing.
The next steps in Vottun’s launch will include building associations with providers, test makers, and labs for fast deployment over the U.S., and is now a part of a collaboration of several technology associates concentrated on implementing solutions to the COVID-19 pandemic. After, Vottun will solicit government agency allies to mandate tests and verify systems, assuring athletes and sports fans return to training and events as soon as possible.
Established in 2018 by Rohan Hall, an African American author, and serial entrepreneur, and other allies, Vottun utilizes blockchain technology to enhance the way the certified data can be utilized in real-life scenarios. The company produces blockchain technologies for enterprises and governments. Vottun solutions involve blockchain credentials, supply chain traceability, APIs, identity, and a full interoperable blockchain agnostic protocol. The company is backed by Draper Ventures (Draper B1), a leading Blockchain Venture Capital group led by Tim Draper, and has clients in the USA and Europe. Vottun has offices in both Los Angeles and Spain.
