Launch of a Blockchain-based App to Ease Pandemic Travel

An app that uses blockchain technology to facilitate travel during the pandemic has been launched.

The app, called ICC AOKpass allows users to instantly verify their COVID-19 status. Dorjee Sun, CEO of blockchain firm Perlin, told CIR Magazine that ICC AOKpass "uses a common global standard that can be deployed and used anywhere in the world today.

 It adapts to any country's rules and allows users to instantly check their COVID-19 compliance status from anywhere.

ICC AOKpass was also tested by a few companies, including International SOS and Energy Drilling in Singapore. Crew members were selected by the firms to perform a polymerase chain reactions (PCR) test for COVID. The medical results of the app had been saved to the app. The client received the results and was able to enter Thailand via the app.

Juliana Gim is the managing director of International SOS Singapore. She stated that everyone can safely resume travel after the Coronavirus pandemic.

"The success of ICC AOKpass pilot with Energy Drilling is encouraging. It marks an important step on our journey and the goal of implementing a trusted, standardized global system that facilitates the return to work in many industries. We hope this system will be widely adopted in the future to allow for a quick, safe, and secure return to work.
