This is not the first time that we write about a company embracing blockchain technology to offer better security or an improved service. There are hundreds of enterprises that use blockchain technology in order to increase their efficiency. Now, the US Postal Service is planning to introduce a blockchain system for support in deploying basic post activities.
US Postal Service Embraces Blockchain Technology
The US Postal Service has submitted an official patent at the US Patent and Trademark Office. The document is titled: Methods and Systems For a Digital Trust Architecture. The patent has been published on march the 22nd after presenting another initiative in September 2017.
It seems that the services to carry out some daily activities are not as secured as desired. That has created some concerns at the US Postal Service that is trying to improve customers’ confidence by developing better security procedures.
The abstract reads as follows:
“In some aspects, methods and systems for a digital trust architecture are provided. In some aspects, the architecture includes a user account provisioning process. The provisioning process may take use of in person verifications of some personal information to ensure authenticity of the user information. Once the authenticity of user information is established, an account may be created.”
The intention is to create a service to be deployed within the Postal Service refer to email tools. The new patent explains that there will be a new digital component that can will allow the information to be stored in a blockchain system.
“In some aspects, the user email component is further configured to receive input indicating whether information indicating the transition of the encrypted email body data is to be stored in a block chain and store the information in a blockchain in response to the input.”
Enterprises Improving with Blockchain Technology
Some enterprises would definitely improve their services by using blockchain technology. For example, London, a city that is suffering the effects of Brexit negotiations may receive an economic boost by embracing blockchain technology.
During an interview with Business Insider, Kay Swinburne, a member of the European Parliament representing Wales, said that London could keep its position as a financial centre if it embraces blockchain technology.
Kay Swinburne said:
“For me, this whole distributed ledger technology, we have to embrace it. The UK post-Brexit: how does the City of London stay relevant? The City of London stays relevant by suddenly becoming the proponents of the new technologies and not just patching existing systems to make them work post-Brexit, actually leapfrogging.”
Blockchain is here to stay and it is improving everyone’s life. Where applied, efficiency grows, costs are reduced and economic growth is almost granted. Enterprises ready to invest on it will ultimately be the ones that will have better long term results.
