All professionals admit that the most recent events related to the coronavirus have changes the regular course of life all around the globe. Market specialists have been studying and analyzing the post-pandemic crisis – their mission is to identify what kind of business sectors the disease has affected.

It’s hard to deny that the lockdown period wouldn’t let some certain industries grow and develop. Many areas are still trying to find a way out and striving to survive. One such industry is tourism – there, travel agencies have been suffering for the past half a year since traveling has become impossible.

Luckily, developers are willing to offer something new and that is an anonymous e-passport application. Hopefully, the innovation will revive the nine-trillion-USD global tourism industry.

Thanks to the efforts made by ShareRing’s team, the market can now offer a solution that is based on the blockchain. The project allows tracing contacts and can serve as a useful instrument for almost three million hotels and various activity providers. As news reports announce, at present, there are hundreds of locations that employ this brand’s services.

Safety and Encrypted Information

Professionals say that the anonymous e-passport application will assist in solving issues related to privacy facing equivalent tracing applications. Recentdata indicates that tourism is one of the most profitable spheres and the industry needs a special tool that would allow owners to upload important information.

They need it to store documentation, bookings, travel insurance, and the coronavirus test results. If an individual tests positive to COVID-19, the system will anonymously transfer the essential details to the authorities. This will allow others to be informed if they have been in contact with the infected individual.

At the same time, the newly developed application can integrate with the majority of eVOA systems. Also, it can be used by hotels, as well as airlines and insurance companies. All of the mentioned organizations will be able to scan the application and reveal results without disclosing any private data. Executives claim that private details will not leave the system.

When the person signs up for the brand’s ID, the system takes his or her photo. The person will be asked to present a video selfie and DOB. Additionally, the application will contain the user’s name, address, and other nuances. The file will be fully encrypted and well-protected. They will also require a fingerprint and store this kind of data on the blockchain.
