Dubai Airlines plans to acceptBitcoin as a payment service

Government of Dubai has launched the Blockchain-enabled Agriota E-Marketplace for sourcing and trading agricultural commodities. The new platform will connect Indian farmers with companies in the United Arab Emirates to trade cereals, pulses, oil seeds, fruits, vegetables, spices and condiments.

The ultimate goal of positioning our nation as a world leading hub in innovation-driven food security

Ahmed Bin Sulayem, the chief executive officer of the DMMC, which runs a free trade zone, said in a statement.

The launch was attended by His Excellency Pavan Kapoor, Ambassador of India to the UAE and focused on how the Agriota platform will positively impact the UAE’s food security and economy and the way in will also boost trade ties with India

This is a powerful example of transparency, digital efficiency and disintermediation, as Indian farmers connect directly with the UAE’s food industry (food processing companies, traders, and wholesalers). This reduces the role of intermediaries, and makes supply chain and traceability efforts more efficient. Other services on the platform include accounting, contract, and regulatory compliance services, which reduces bureaucracy for all involved.

Agriota platform was developed by CropData Technology, an Indian company whose mission is to help marginal and small farmers.

on

South Korea plans to implement a digital identity (IDs) using blockchain technology for it’s citizens with a smartphone as it taps into the world’s most tech-savvy population to boost economic growth.

Digital IDs simplify verification on the web, removing the need to photograph certificates or log in via authentication codes sent by text. Instead, activities like applying for state benefits, transferring money or even casting a vote are just a pin or fingerprint away.

Smartphone-implanted IDs are among the latest emerging technology underpinning a digital economy that has expanded as more people work from home, make cashless payments and explore the metaverse.

Digitals IDs can yield huge economic benefits in finance, healthcare, taxes, transportation and other areas and may catch on quickly among the Korean population

said Hwang Seogwon, an economist at Korea’s Science and Technology Policy Institute.

The World Bank calls digital IDs a “game-changer” and McKinsey & Co sees their potential to increase a nation’s gross domestic output by up to 13 per cent and cut business costs by trillions of dollars.
