How can blockchain keep track of refugee applications?

Corda Network announces Board of Directors

Blockchain revolutionizes the world we live in every day. From “helping” the real estate industry to the food and beverage one, blockchain disrupts them all. One of the most pressing issues that the whole world currently faces is undeniably the rising migration patterns and the rising number of refugees.

One country, however, has thought of a clever way to keep track of the refugee applications coming its way. Malta is reportedly turning to blockchain for its refugee issue, according to a paper by the European commission. The news comes from Times of Malta online source.

The paper is called Blockchain for Digital Government and it traces the incumbents in the European Union that are using or implementing the blockchain in the national governance of the respective country.

Interestingly enough, the government of Malta is looking to use blockchain for digitizing educational certificates. In addition to this, the system can store credentials of refugees. The whole implementation of blockchain can be used for identity verification and keeping record of the social aid given to refugees and asylum-seekers in EU countries.

One issue that may arise, however, is the legality of the blockchain-based issuance and certificate verification. This, in turn, can prevent the implementation from going international.

While the project is not yet 100% under way, Malta seems to be thinking globally when it comes to the implementation of blockchain and how the technology can help solve pressing issues for many countries.
