According to a report on Reuters, the US anti-human trafficking Ambassador John Richmond also spoke in favor of using the new technology such as phone apps and blockchain to address with human trafficking.
Hosted by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), the conference in Vienna had many prominent names and experts which pointed to the increasing Internet usage and its ability to exploit traffickers and their potential targets.
Princess Eugenie – who is the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth – was also featured, noting that the technology could help fight traffic.
“I have learned about how blockchain is having a huge impact on supply chain management, and how an app in Britain can help the public report modern slavery at car washes,” said the Princess, who is also known for founding the Anti-Slavery Collective in Britain in 2017.
Eugenie also referred to an initiative started by Coca Cola and the US Department of State and the Safe Car Wash App. The initiative began in March last year, focusing on blockchain as a method that could create a secure worker registry. The partnership here can address the problem of forced labor by using blockchain’s validation and digital notary features in order to create a secure registry for workers.
The app found nearly 1,000 cases of slave labor at car washes in the UK. Being launched by the Church of England and the Catholic Church in England and Wales in June 2018, it will allow users to enter their location as well as other various indicators of the presence of slave labor.
Reuters also reported that there are more than 136,000 slave laborers in the UK, a number which has grown 10 times since 2013. The anti-human trafficking Ambassador Richmond also noted that while the technology could not human trafficking alone, “there are tech tools that can help people do their job better and eventually make a difference.”

Crypto Exchange Poloniex Drops 23 Pairs Due To Low Volume
‘’We will be removing 23 trading pairs on August 16, 2019, due to low volume. Note that each asset will continue to be independently tradable.’’More than half of the listed pairs are in ETH, about six are XMR pairings and the rest are stabelcoin pairs for the various obscure altcoins. Some of them include Loom Network/ USDT which has $50 traded in the past day, Status/USDT with just $157, Bancor/USDT trading only $75 per day, FOAM/USDC and the worst performing pair which is the Khyber Network/USDT. Some of the ETH pairs were popular altcoins with high volumes such as Golem, Qtum, GAS, Steem, OmiseGO and Civic but after bitcoin, Ethereum and Zcash as top pairs on the exchange, all others burst into flames. The Monero paris aside from BTC and stablecoins will also be dropped because of the low volumes. This could only be the case of falling volume on that particular exchange because the same pairs on Binance are doing really well. Compared to two years ago in 2017, the altcoin scene looked a lot different than today and many of the altcoins have now falled off the digital cliff in terms of token price regardless of other developments on the project by the respective teams. Two years ago in August, IOTA was the fifth largest cryptocurrency by market cap which was priced at $0.94 with a $2.6 billion market cap. Today as we can read in the latest cryptocurrency news, IOTA is struggling to say in the top twenty and is down by more than 75%. The Crypto Exchange Poloniex drops the pairs and we shall see if any major fluctuations will happen.
