“Being an educator, cybercrimes investigator, and fraud examiner, preventative measures are the key to protection. That is exactly what Block.co is providing through document authentication using distributed ledger technology, like blockchain, to authenticate documents, which was the exact original use case of the first iteration of blockchain in 1991. I support Block.co’s mission ” to eliminate document fraud everywhere, by transforming the way institutions manage digital records” and their vision of developing innovative solutions using technology like DLT.”
We believe that this collaboration will pave the way to Block.co’s success in further protection of personal data, and strengthen its mission of building a truly decentralized, secure, transparent network of transactions.
