Distributed database that is used to maintain a continuously growing list of records, called blocks
Microsoft and Accenture Plc joined forces in a project that is designed to provide legal IDs to 1.1 billion people using a blockchain based digital network. The target of this project is to assist refugees who don't have their paper documents by the hand. It will give them access to education and healthcare. Project is supported by the United nations
This service will store digital identifications of refugee and will allow access their record at any location, even without any paper documents. The program will work with multiple organizations databases to prove a person's identity. It is much better than rely only on one database. At the moment, there is one prototype, created using existing Accenture platform used by the UN High Commissioner of Refugees.
Developers from both teams invite other companies to join their project.
