21 May 2018, New York: Bluenumber announces BlueChain, a GDPR-compliant decentralised blockchain platform to secure the Bluenumber ecosystem for B# holders and their transactions.
Bluenumber’s unique alphanumeric identifier, the B#, identifies people, organisations, places and things. B#s connect actors and elements across systems, revealing networks and relationships. For famers and workers now joining the global economy, a B# enables them to be recognised, and enjoy the benefits of participating as individuals with digital dignity.
Bluenumber is now building BlueChain using a block-based decentralised platform. Unlike current blockchain platforms, BlueChain guarantees the ‘right to be forgotten’, a key element for compliance to the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other emerging data privacy and protection laws. BlueChain delinks B# holder’s data from transactions that their B#s are involved in.
All B#s are stored in the Bluenumber Registry, a separate database that is off of the blockchain. Any B# holder can request for their information to be permanently deleted from the Bluenumber Registry. BlueChain blockchains all transactions between B#s but the transaction record does not store any personal information of B# holders.
Bluenumber is working closely with ProximaX, a blockchain-based, decentralised platform powered by NEM Foundation. BlueChain will be built-in to all Bluenumber solutions and any B#-compatible app within the Bluenumber Platform and ecosystem. All B# users will benefit from BlueChain and the security blockchain can offer their transactions.
Bluenumber will be introducing a coin in early 2019, available to all B# holders with no fees for transactions within the Bluenumber Platform and ecosystem.
A Bluenumber is a globally unique identifier delivered over mobile Internet to allow workers, farmers and rural communities to participate affordably and fully in the digital economy. Bluenumber uses proprietary technology to map and analyse supply chains from point of origin. Bluenumber has offices in New York, Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, Dhaka, Jakarta and Munich.
