Algorand (ALGO) To Power Latin America’s First Blockchain-Based COVID Passport

The world’s first blockchain-powered COVID passport has gone live in Colombia as part of a joint project between Algorand (ALGO) and Koibanx. The tool is capable of generating user-friendly, reliable, and simple experiences for patients and allows users to go from having a paper certificate to a digital certificate.

Called VitalPass, the digital passport has been created to track Covid-19 vaccination through advanced blockchain technology from Algorand to guarantee security, traceability, and transparency during the vaccination process across Latin America.

“We are excited about the innovation coming out of Latin America, particularly when it comes to the ability to harness the power of efficient and advanced blockchain to quickly bring innovative solutions to life,” said W. Sean Ford, COO of Algorand.
