Use Cases: Blockchain
Distributed Ledger Technologies such as Blockchains, as the most cutting-edge technology at present, have already attracted high attention. The core of blockchain is consensus, and the consensus can form a verified value. In the future, DLTs will liberate, improve productivity and bring trust, transparency, and privacy amongst the participants by distributing information with a high level of transparency and security. Not just for financial institutions but also for public administration, who can use DLTs to protect trusted records and simplify interactions with citizens.
During the FIWARE Smart Fest, we will address the use-cases already using blockchain/DLT technologies in the ‘Powered by FIWARE’ solutions. The integration of blockchain/DLTs within FIWARE Architecture paves the way for supporting audit-proof logging of transactions which are the basis for certification of the processes automated by smart solutions.
Also, We will discuss the potential of integrating blockchain and DLT technology within FIWARE-based Smart solutions and use cases.
