Baseline blockchain COVID-19 tracing app aims to resolve the flaws in the apps developed by the tech giants using ‘Distributed Ledger Technology.’ Baseline itself is a joint effort between major brands like Ernst & Young, Microsoft, and ConsenSys. The team has identified certain operational flaws in the apps proposed by Google and Apple. Their apps reportedly have support for cross-platform APIs in order to allow the health authorities to oversee users. Bluetooth Low Energy will be used for proximity detection and identify potentially infected contact.

Here, tech companies will independently oversee the data without any intervention of the local health authorities. Read More...
