As part of the expansion of Blockchain2050 activities, we are pleased to announce that Tap2SOS, the life-saving wristband, has taken its first steps on the African continent, and is now available in Nigeria!
By visiting the exclusive-for-Nigeria webpage Nigeria.tap2sos.com all customers from this region can now be served even faster through our specialized corporate representative.
BC2050 is representing project VPP4ISLANDS to the "DATA MANAGEMENT" Working Groups which is created from BRIDGE Initiative.
The BRIDGE Initiative helps to connect engaged members and relevant Smart Grid and green Energy, Islands, and Digitalisation Projects to create a structured view of cross-cutting priorities.
In 2021, 22 new European projects have joined BRIDGE initiative, participated in the discussions related to the green energy transition and contributed to the elaboration of novel EU directives by innovating the EU’s energy system and sharing their best practices.
This happened during the BRIDGE General Assembly which took place on 2nd, 3rd and 4th of March, virtually, presenting the latest developments of the initiative.
BC2050 attended the BRIDGE GA representing VPP4ISLANDS project.
More information in the attached #1Public Newsletter of VPP4ISLANDS project.
VPP4Islands, the project that Blockchain2050 BV proudly participates in, has now its own
digital home and can be accessed by clicking here. VPP4Islands
is a EU funded project that proposes disruptive solutions based on Digital Twin concept,
Virtual Energy Storage Systems and Distributed Ledger Technology to revolutionize the
existing VPP and build smart energy communities.
From its website, visitors can learn about the project’s concept and impact,
read the latest news and be informed about the Work Packages and its current progress. Moreover,
the viewer can be introduced to all partners who contribute towards the development of the project
as well as get to know the demonstration sites at which VPP4Islands will be implemented.
All publicly available results and dissemination activities are published in the website,
with new content being added as the project matures. In addition, you can subscribe to
in order not to miss out any development.
The VPP4Islands project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020
Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No 957852
In the context of constant searching for acclaimed partners for the
conclusion of strategic partnerships, Blockchain2050 is pleased to
announce that it is now a member of the International Association for
Trusted Blockchain Applications (INATBA).
INATBA is a global forum with direct communications channels for
developers and users of DLT to further advance Blockchain technology,
through interaction with regulators and policy makers. Its diversified
business network consists of large industry players to micro startups
and various non-profit organizations all round the world.
Blockchain2050 and INATBA share the same vision towards the
advancement of Blockchain technology. This partnership will open new
horizons for new fruitful collaborations by mutually exchanging
knowledge and expertise.
INATBA regularly organizes meritorious events and workshops related
to Blockchain technology advancements as well as modern challenges
that need to be effectively addressed. Blockchain2050 is an active
participant in such events, from now on, sharing views and opinions
with distinguished peers from around the globe.
Its proposal is about an Intelligent Blockchain-enabled Space-Assets Protection System. .
The final winner from all the NATO countries will be chosen in a special event of NATO at 29 of June in Portugal.
As the President of Aratos Group and CEO of Aratos Systems BV, Dr. Nikos Bogonikolos, stated, Aratos continuing the presentation of cutting-edge innovations proposed a system which combines the Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain Technology for the safety of space assets like satellites, spacecrafts etc. “We are proud and happy that our Dutch small-medium enterprise, with the contribution of Greek scientists in its team, succeeded in qualifying at the finals of the NATO Innovation Challenge”, ended up Dr. Nikos Bogonikolos.
Aratos Systems BV (www.aratos-systems.com) has already developed other similar technological solutions for the security and defence with the use of space technologies like the innovative system for the calculation of the temperatures in the cities in high spatial resolution of 12.5m x 12.5m and near real time.
TAP2SOSTM, the IoT/M2M bracelet for secure storing and retrieving of medical data through Blockchain technology, has been upgraded to run on LTO Network. LTO Network is optimized for lightweight transactions, offering increased performance and smooth operation to all Blockchain applications that run on it.
LTO Network utilizes anchoring techniques which are cost-effective and easy to implement, while providing increased integrity and enhanced transparency. The data is never stored on the blockchain. Instead it is hashed before anchoring and only the hash is stored on-chain. This, makes all involved data erasable on demand at any given moment, rendering TAP2SOSTM completely GDPR compliant.
As of 30/June/2020, a team of stakeholders from quite different verticals, work objectives and geographical origins gave birth to a brilliant initiative of a quite pioneering vision: Space Waste management via Blockchain Technology.
The project aims to counter the problem of space debris. More than 20.000 objects larger than 3 inches and over 128 million of smaller size, are populating several orbits around Earth. Most of them pose a great risk since they contain toxic and hazardous materials.
By using Blockchain technology, space waste management will be effectively conducted by accurately mapping out floating debris. Blockchain technology is selected as a major pillar of this pioneering work because it presents significant potential for secure data sharing and improving the robustness of data collection of space debris and space waste management among the numerous projects and different stakeholders.
In the light of the above several official letters are sent today to all major Space Agencies (NASA, ESA, UKSA, CNSA, USA, JAXA, ISRO, and Roscosmos etc.) around the globe to ask for support and collaboration in this project.
The Municipality of Argos-Mycenae became the first Municipality to install Blockchain technology.
In the context of the integration of new technologies and the modernization of its administrative structures, the Municipality of Argos-Mycenae became the first Municipality of Greece to implement the Blockchain technology in its services.
The specific application created and implemented by Blockchain 2050 BV, a member of ARATOS Group, is expected to lead to a series of innovative and efficient services to citizens, while ensuring the inviolability of a series of documents issued and certified by municipal services. In addition, time-consuming and costly procedures for certifying and uniqueness of a document are avoided, as it is an interactive platform for electronic signature and document authentication with Blockchain technology.
Thus, the need to provide services that are more reliable, faster, safer and with the least possible participation of the citizen and the public service is effectively covered, while reducing the possibility of errors to the minimum possible level.
In the relevant presentation that took place on June 29 at the headquarters of the services of the Municipality of Argos-Mycenae, specialized scientific staff of the ARATOS Group delivered the software, while presenting to the officials the positive functions of the Blockchain application for both citizens and employees public services.
The entry of the Municipality of Argos-Mycenae in Blockchain technology creates the belief that other Municipalities and public bodies will follow the path of technological development of new systems, modernizing their structures and services to the citizens.
The advent of the Covid-19 Healthcare crisis has generated the need to hastily implement tools to track the mass movement of people and assist in maintaining essential services to curb the advance of the pandemic. This rapid deployment has generated a number of concerns regarding privacy, validation and data protection, fueling the need to ensure the security and integrity of data transmission and information exchange.
The use of Blockchain Technology can ensure the validity and protection of information by serving as a security layer when mass data transactions of sensitive information are required. Foster trust and enable cooperation during crises by securing transactions with Blockchain technology.
