Austrian Government Grants Ardor Blockchain-Powered Project Share of $26M COVID-19 Tech Fund
QualiSig was developed by A-Trust GmbH, the Austrian Trust Center responsible for managing the digital identities of domestic citizens. The project received a €60,000 grant from the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation, and Technology and the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs, to be built on Jelurida’s Ardor blockchain.
A security solution for digital communications, QualiSig combines blockchain technologies and verified digital signatures to ensure personal data relating to COVID-19 testing remains secure. Post-Corona Useability Although QualiSig was developed to assist COVID relief efforts, its usability beyond the current situation is obvious: not only might verified message signatures help tackle the scourge of fake news, but sensitive communications between authorities and citizens could be made more secure.
