[Wise Crypto Life] 17. Real Life Applications
By now, we have covered various fields that are enhanced by blockchain including art, sports, real estate and games. In this edition of Wise Crypto Life, we will delve into how it’s used in miscellaneous real life applications we can easily encounter on a daily basis.
Locally-grown produce meets the newest technology to create “blockchain apples”. Every Cheongsong apple sold since last winter comes with a scannable QR code that provides buyers with distribution history, the farming region, and storage methods.
The new feature attracted mass attention and consequently, its sales volume raised by a whopping 120,00kg. Cheongsong is a remarkable example of how the agricultural industry is utilizing blockchain to increase its product reliability. This may only the beginning as more companies may follow its footsteps to further guarantee the quality and safety of crops being sold.
Voting can be an essential aspect of who we are and what kind of society we live in. We cast our voices through our votes whether it be political, cultural, or ethical in hopes that the results will bring about positive change. Furthermore, we rely on current systems in place to be credible and accurate. In this regard, the Korean Broadcasting and Seoul Drama Awards votes were recorded through blockchain for viewers to watch live. This type of application helps build voter confidence and trust through the transparency it provides.
Although we donate in good faith, there may be moments where we wonder exactly where our contributions are going. Especially with well-known concerns of middlemen taking huge cuts from people’s donations, we are often left apprehensive about whether our good deeds are paying off, or if it is even worth donating to a cause we care about.
The government’s “2021 Blockchain Expansion Project” is currently being established to implement a service that allows donors to directly check the history of their donations. This feature, scheduled to be released next month, will be a great opportunity for those who have been wanting to donate but have been hesitating due to uncertainty about the exact path of where our money goes.
The decentralized transparency characteristic of blockchain is allowing it to be applied across a variety of industries and services. Though no one really knows how mainstream this technology may become, the visibility it provides seems to be the biggest appeal to start new conversations.
