United Nations Uses Smart Contracts (Blockchain Technology)

Posted on Updated on

United Nations World Food Programme transfers vouchers to a total of 10.000 refugees in Syria using the Ethereum Blockchain technology (smart contracts, cryptocurrencies). The World Food Programme (WFP) plans to extend the project even further to cover 100,000 people in Jordan by late 2018. The UN is planning more Blockchain technology-related projects to move the aid to disaster-stricken countries faster.
