Nowadays everybody tries to move to blockchain it seems. And the Chinese are going even further with this notion. Recently China Banknote Blockchain Technology Research Institute has debuted the new system called Blockchain Registry Open Platform (BROP for short). It's a platform for identity and supply-chain tracking utilizing blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) approach.
Of course, it's not the first BaaS platform ever developed, with several other companies having their own flavor of the same thing. But in the case of BROP the significant difference lies in the developer's official connections. The Research Institute is quite strongly tied to Chinese government and has a luxury of their backing on such projects.
The aim of the new platform is to build the environment for a trustworthy collaboration. It is achieved by establishing verifiable digital identities, storing trusted data on the blockchain and providing digital vouchers which would verify agreement rights on the blockchain.
It can be used to store data and provide track record for the changes made. Also developers have presented plans to utilize their project to make public services more optimized and transparent for the government and the users.
