The blockchain technology is applicable to most industries are no longer theories as new companies and countries introduced innovation every day. Brazil has offered to store the country birth certificates using blockchain.
The system was backed by IBM’s Blockchain Platform that will reduce the time taken to process and improve the reliability of Brazil registration system. According to the Chief Technology Officer for Trusted Identity at IBM, Dan Gisolfi added that steps taken by the Brazil government to implement blockchain technology should not stop at birth certification alone but towards other documentations.
The new system will allow applicants to receive their valid birth certificate less than 15 minutes compared to a conventional method that would take several hours. This first birth registered using this breakthrough was in July 2019, but the system was not shared publicly until recently.
It is not surprising if other countries will follow Brazil’s step in implementing the system. No one wants to wait for few hours to process a paper, especially in the age where everything is fast and instant.
