One of the main challenges of the current situation of the pandemic is to know people’s health status. It is also difficult to validate whether someone has already been vaccinated and what their status is concerning the Covid-19 disease. However, the state of New York has found the solution in blockchain technology.

New York Governor has announced a kind of blockchain-based passport – the same technology behind Bitcoin – free and voluntary developed in partnership with IBM.

The blockchain passport called the Excelsior Passport serves to confirm data and will be used to check whether a person has been vaccinated for Covid-19 or not.
