Factors at stake

Blockchain is a technology with highly useful characteristics that exist with many variants.

Blockchain technology proposes many high-value features, including:

Universal Time-stamping

Often simpler to use than a PKI and trusted entity approach, its probative value is already accepted in many courts around the world, for example in Italy, China and numerous jurisdictions in the United States.

Unfalsifiable Data Recording

What is written remains in a Blockchain, as set in stone. This functionality is perfect for storing unchangeable audit trails (For example: traceability of a food product), for documentary integrity checking via the storage of the unique fingerprint of a digital document (For example: transformation of EDM into ERMS) or to generate proof of anteriority in terms of intellectual property.

Smart Contracts to Automate Basic Processing

Simple and efficient, a smart contract makes it possible to automate data processing and transactions in a decentralised manner. The Banking sector is hence in the process of revolutionising its settlement-delivery chains for securities transactions.

Native Token Management

A Blockchain makes it very easy to create a points management system with points distributions and transfers between its participants. Above and beyond crypto currencies, this function is of interest to us in the field of securitisation of goods, loyalty points, voting rights, etc.

Unique Token Management

A “non fungible” token only exists in a single copy in a Blockchain. By associating the ownership of the unique token with that of tangible property (a car, a painting, a concert ticket), Blockchain becomes a phenomenal tool for managing titles of ownership.
