COVID-19 test results at Frankfurt Airport are tracked via IOTA blockchain
The COVID-19 test center at Frankfurt Airport uses a solution developed by Ubrich GmbH which is based on IOTA and Ethereum. Early on in the pandemic, the heightened need for various biosurveillance measures sparked interest in the relevance of privacy-enhancing technologies such as blockchain that could protect public health data amid the crisis.
As well as around the world, the Corona pandemic continues to be the defining issue for all citizens in Germany. Lockouts and contact restrictions, as well as PCR testing for diagnosis COVID-19, all these preventive measures are currently playing a central role in the fight against the virus. However, as the founder of the IOTA Czech Republic community found out, the IOTA technology Tangle could also be a staple in fighting the virus.
Cologne-based startup is developing IOTA and Ethereum based solution
However, the technical solution is not developed by the IOTA Foundation itself, but by the Cologne-based startup Ubrich GmbH. As indicated by Blockchain Insider last January, Ubrich “Uses a public mainchain with a private sidechain to fill Ethereum scalability bottlenecks. “
For COVID-19 tests, a Ubrich flyer reveals details of how it works. According to him, after taking and analyzing a sample, the result is “anchored in the blockchain using UBIRCH’s unique technology.”
For example, passengers can have their test result checked directly at the gate before departure. Lufthansa Industry Solutions (LHIND) already uses this secure and convenient service. In addition, the application with an integrated UBIRCH interface can easily be used in other application areas or industries, according to the leaflet.
Digital identity solution providers have increasingly developed various products involving blockchain that are targeted for use during the pandemic, alongside special blockchain apps to provide countries with “health passport”-like solutions for easing restrictions.
