Blockchain: The Useful Technology to Fight Corruption
A protagonist of business growth and transparency in governments is undoubtedly the Blockchain. According to Custom Soft, a company dedicated to creating solutions based on this technology, as well as Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity, Computation in the Cloud and Software Factory.
“Taking advantage of the benefits that technology offers us now, means having tools that make our daily lives easier,” said José Ángel Reyes, CEO of the company, quoting Blockchain as an example.
Reyes, representing Custom Soft, said about the unique characteristics of this technology, integrity, immutability, security, reliability and traceability of the information. It manages projects that could be promoted for the benefits of companies, such as supply chain, digital security, commerce, payments, combat piracy and health, among others.
Reyes said that through Blockchain you can know the status of a transaction (Purchase/Sale, payment, processing, access to information), which allows you to know at all times what is happening, who is making it, the associated amount, the reason for carrying it out, those who have seen it or can see it and if someone changed any characteristic of it, with the confidence that everything will be 100% safe and reliable.
In government matters, José Ángel Reyes commented that Blockchain can become the key technological element in the fight against corruption, since it allows to implement processes such as citizen digital identity, process automation, accountability, public procurement control, traceability of Foreign trade transactions, among others. All this with the clear purpose of combating corruption and transparent accountability.
It should be noted that projects that integrate Blockchain technology are already being developed internationally, the challenge will be to harness the potential and real capabilities of this (relatively) new technology.
