In times when there are a lot of spam phone calls around us, an Indian technology firm decided to adopt the distributed ledger technology (DLT) and use blockchain for spam calls. The latest cryptocurrency news show the anti-spam call solution in detail.
First reported by the Indian business daily outlet Business Today on May 2, this solution uses blockchain for spam calls and is meant to allow companies to comply with the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) regulations in order to protect mobile phone subscribers from unsolicited Commercial Communication (UCC) – something which is expected to come into effect in the last week of this month.
As the Global Practice Leader of Blockchain at Tech Mahindra named Rajesh Dhuddu recently said, the TRAI regulations will affect 800 million subscribers – all benefiting from the blockchain for spam calls technology.
In detail, this solution will use blockchain tech to save and share a user’s incoming contact settings. For example, a user would see who they have consented to receive communications from – and use blockchain for spam calls in order to block the spammers. According to Tech Mahindra, there is proof of concept for this solution which is in conjunction with Microsoft and dating back to TRAI since 2018.
Dhuddu also praised blockchain for spam calls and the technology’s ability to help and repair what he sees as a trust deficit, especially in the Government to Citizen (G2C) services and business transactions. This would benefit the country and its citizens too – but mostly the transactions in the business world on a global scale, he said.
“Blockchain, with its key features such as Secure Hash Algorithms, Consensus based decision making, immutable transactions and distributed ledgers, serves as a panacea for growing trust deficit not only in G2C services but also in overall business world,” the Global Practice Leader at Mahindra Tech said in the statement.
Besides the blockchain for spam calls solution which was reported on many best cryptocurrency news sites, Tech Mahindra is also working with the tech giant Samsung towards implementation of solutions with the blockchain platform Nexledger. The arrangement would allow Samsung to expand its international blockchain presence – and Tech Manidra to adopt a new technology and grow its operations in India.
