‘This can revolutionize assistance to vulnerable families across the globe’

The World Food Programme (WFP) is testing the use of blockchain, a bold technology that can potentially transform the fight against hunger. Blockchain technology, most famously associated with the crypto-currency Bitcoin, offers unique opportunities for humanitarian agencies to provide the best-possible assistance to vulnerable people around the world.

What is blockchain?

Put simply, blockchains provide a way for two parties to do business with each other without the need for a trusted third party. Akin to emails, information on the blockchain can flow from one address to another. The content of the message, for example, can be a value transfer, a beneficiary’s ID, or somebody’s health records.

What we can learn from the evolution of another groundbreaking technology.

Even years into the deployment of the internet, many believed that it was still a fad. Of course, the internet has since become a major influence on our lives, from how we buy goods and services, to the ways we socialize with friends, to the Arab Spring, to the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Yet, in the 1990s, the mainstream press scoffed when Nicholas Negroponte predicted that most of us would soon be reading our news online rather than from a newspaper.

Fast forward two decades: Will we soon be seeing a similar impact from cryptocurrencies and blockchains? There are certainly many parallels. Like the internet, cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are driven by advances in core technologies along with a new, open architecture — the Bitcoin blockchain. Like the internet, this technology is designed to be decentralized, with “layers,” where each layer is defined by an interoperable open protocol on top of which companies, as well as individuals, can build products and services.

The top three winners and a finalist of the event are all Ethereum-based platforms.

On February 14, 2017, the winners of the Blockchain Virtual GovHack were announced during a presentation ceremony at the World Government Summit, a government-sponsored event that took place in Dubai that focused on smart city initiatives and blockchain powered governance.

Project Oaken took home first prize with their Tesla on the blockchain submission, which combines IoT hardware and software for smart cars to operate toll systems autonomously (machine-to-machine) through the use of smart contracts. Second place went to HealthBlocks, a platform to gather, store, use, and exchange health information of patients, and third place was awarded to Dubai Land Registry, with the mission of digitizing title deeds on the blockchain. Finalist and recipient of the “2017 Year of Giving Award,” was Hypergive, a digital food wallet that helps feed homeless and hungry people in the community in a secure and transparent manner.


An alliance of about 30 companies, including Microsoft and JPMorgan Chase, has plans to standardize data gathering and tracking with software that is seen as harder to hack.

SAN FRANCISCO — Microsoft, JPMorgan Chase and other corporate giants are joining forces to create a new kind of computing system based on the virtual currency network Ethereum.

Some 30 companies are set to announce on Tuesday the formation of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, which will create a standard version of the Ethereum software that businesses around the world can use to track data and financial contracts.

The new organization, a nonprofit, is part of a broader movement to harness the technological concept known as the blockchain, which was introduced to the world by Bitcoin.

Blockchains offer a way for unrelated computers and companies to simultaneously collect and store information without relying on a central authority, similar to the way that Wikipedia is written and maintained by a group of writers and editors rather than a single author.
