ICTU and Xurux developed a Proof of Concept to verify legal documents within public registers via the open source ‘IOTA-Blockchain’. This is reported by official IOTA Reddit. 

The software, developed by these two companies,  guarantees the authenticity of legal documents through the open source ‘Blockchain’. Now a a citizen can demonstrate to the housing corporation that he or she is an inhabitant of the city of Haarlem by means of Blockchain. Now citizens no need to visit the town hall to receive an official extract.

By figure of speech, the application could be deployed tomorrow. It enhances the technology and its adaptation in the public domain, improving society as a whole.

One of the world's largest consulting firms, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), announced the launch of an updated audit solution that supports cryptocurrency assets. This is stated in the press release of the company.

A tool called Halo aims to provide warranty services to cryptocurrency transactions. In particular, the solution helps to create independent evidence for private-public key pairs, which is one of the elements necessary for establishing cryptocurrency ownership rights.

In addition, Halo can collect information about transactions and balances on the blockchain.

As noted in the statement, the decision can be used by companies for which PwC is not an auditor. The initiative should help them try new opportunities and solve problems related to the blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

Currently, PwC can use the updated tool to provide warranty services to customers operating Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Bitcoin Diamond, LiteCoin, Ethereum, Ripple (XRP), as well as the ERC-20 OAX token.

PwC has been showing quite a strong interest in the cryptocurrency industry for several years now. So, in 2017, the company began accepting payments in Bitcoins, and last year began to develop new standards for the ecosystem of digital assets and stablecoats.
