Blockchain Provides Trusted Data to Counter Spread of Coronavirus 2020/04/04 11:50:00 Cointelegraph
MiPasa leverages data analytics and IBM’s blockchain platform to ensure accurate and trustworthy COVID-19 data for researchers, clinicians and governments. With each passing day, new data regarding the coronavirus pandemic is being brought to the public’s attention.

To combat the issue, a San Francisco-based blockchain security company Hacera launched a data analytics platform in February to combat inaccurate COVID-19 data. Hacrera’s founder, Jonathan Levi, told Cointelegraph that the platform known as MiPasa is a distributed and verifiable data hub that is being used to collect, validate and leverage COVID-19 data, saying: “MiPasa is using data in an effective, humane and privacy-respecting way.
