The adoption of blockchain technology is booming as various fields and departments across nations have already acquired knowledge and talent for its development. Recently, adding to the list is the U.S. Air Force (USAF), which is reportedly planning to test a blockchain-based graph database.
Notably, the blockchain-based database will allow USAF to share documents internally as well as throughout the various branches of the Department of Defense and allied governments. With blockchain’s transparency and immutability, that will enable USAF to maintain interoperability for its units around the globe.
The project will be developed by a blockchain start-up, Fluree that will be in collaboration with Air Force’s Small Business Innovation Research technology innovation program to launch a proof of concept of the distributed ledger technology (DLT) later this year.
Although the USAF is the first government agency to consider blockchain technology, it is indeed a great move by the nation to keep leveraging on the technology that is widely adopted across the globe for its cryptographically secured and immutable nature.
