The tech company BlackBerry Limited known for its phones which were popular a couple of years ago is now viral in the blockchain news section for its new announcement. According to a release, the company has now come up with a blockchain solution for secure data sharing among healthcare providers with the main aim of improving patient outcomes.
BlackBerry will use its network operation center (NOC) in order to power a blockchain digital ledger that will help create a secure global system for storing and sharing patient medical data, according to a release. The blockchain will be provided by Onebio which is a peer-to-peer marketplace for biodata.
As a long-time developer of smartphones and tablets, BlackBerry recently unveiled their new product called BlackBerry Spark which is an Enterprise-of-Things (EoT) platform that aims to transform the global delivery of healthcare data.
According to the CEO of BlackBerry and the current chairman, John Chen:
“At BlackBerry, we are applying our expertise in security, data privacy, and communication work in regulated industries such as automotive, financial services, and government to tackle one of the biggest challenges in the healthcare industry: leveraging healthcare endpoints to improve patient outcomes while ensuring security and data privacy.”
The new solution by the company may also improve medical data as we know it – but also enable it to remain tamper-proof and anonymous so that it can be shared with researchers. The company is also offering the ledger solution for the first time to the Global Commission which works to end the diagnostic chaos for children with rare diseases, the report added.

New Privacy Mechanism For ETH Smart Contracts Developed By Stanford Researchers
“We describe an extension to Zether that can also hide the sender and receiver involved in a transaction among a group of users chosen by the sender. Though the overhead associated with anonymity scales linearly with the size of the group, no trusted set-up is needed and no changes to the underlying smart contract platform are required.”The report specifies that the Zether contract will never transfer funds without checking a transfer proof in order to prevent illegal transfers. This new design makes sure that the security of Zether depends on itself and not on third-parties or outside smart contracts. All of the privacy coins that provide users with a higher level of anonymity are still receiving mixed feelings from the community. For example, Charlie Lee declared he is focused on making Litecoin more fungible and private and to implement confidential transactions sometime in 2019.
Two Ohio-Based Companies Officially Paid Taxes With Cryptocurrency
“We will never accept won or renminbi or francs or cryptocurrency, or any other currency. You have to relieve your debts to the state of Ohio with U.S. dollars. That’s what we’re currently accepting. This platform just allows for that exchange, basically before that debt is settled to the state of Ohio.”Sprague pointed out that the treasury is reviewing how the program can be expanded and they are looking into the potential risks that can come up by using this method of tax payments. Ohio is working hard to attract blockchain-related businesses to the state. The state has already passed a law allowing businesses to pay taxes in crypto but the State Treasurer Josh Mandel stated that the legislation ‘’pants a flag’’ in Ohio regarding cryptocurrency adoption. Two days ago, the County Auditors’ Association of Ohio announced the gathering of a group that will work to explore the benefits of blockchain in real estate and transfer of land titles.
