A blockchain-based app aimed to make travel during the pandemic easier has been launched.
The app, titled asICC AOKpass, will pemit users to monitor their COVID-19 status in real-time mode. Dorjee Sun, CEO of blockchain firm Perlin, mentioned to CIR Magazine that ICC AOKpass “employs a common global standard that can be deployed and used in any part of the world. It can settled in accordance with the rules of any given country and enables users to instantly verify their COVID-19 status.”
ICC AOKpass was tested by a couple of companies, including Singapore-based organization Energy Drilling and International SOS. The firms had selected the personnel on their way to an oil drilling platform take a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for COVID and saved their medical results in the app. The results were then sent to the customer and made easier their entry through the Thailand airport.
Juliana Gim, managing director of International SOS Singapore, mentioned that the successful experience of ICC AOKpass will show to everyone how to resume travel in light of the COVID-19.
“The successful pilot of ICC AOKpass with Energy Drilling is encouraging as it marks an important step in our journey and the aim of implementing a trusted and standardised global system to facilitate the return to work across many industries. In time, we hope that this will see widespread adoption to facilitate a fast, safe and secure return to work.”
The pandemic has made blockchain companies to search for the ways on how they can aid in easing travel restrictions from local authorities.
