Crypto Industry News:
Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso has suggested that Blockchain will play a key role in the global fight against the coronavirus pandemic as the technology can be used to track contacts while ensuring privacy.
Aso delivered the opening speeches of the Blockchain Global Governance Conference, also known as FIN / SUM Blockchain & Business, on August 24 in Tokyo.
"In the fight against widespread infectious diseases, Blockchain provides one solution for contact trading" he said, referring to the coronavirus.
There are nearly 24 million COVID-19 cases worldwide, with over 60,000 in Japan. Despite the subject of Aso's speech, a limited number of people could physically participate in the Blockchain conference, while others watched the speakers live.
The Finance Minister admitted that while the threat from the coronavirus has not subsided, Blockchain could provide privacy to anyone who gets a positive through contact tracing. In addition, this technology could give authorities a better measure of what needs to be done to contain the spread, preventing possible future outbreaks.
