Covid 19 tracking blockchain platform launched

Jul 24, 2020

PUNE: Global blockchain startup BelfricsBT and YoSync, a startup incubated at IIITB-IMACX Studios, signed a research collaboration in agreement with IIIT Bangalore to jointly develop BelYo, a Covid19 tracking blockchain platform. The project has been funded by the Mphasis F1 Foundation.

The platform is currently being tested in a few clinics and will be reaching out to ICMR approved 730 Government labs and 270 private labs starting mid-August.

BelYo uses the BelfricsBT Belrium blockchain platform to convert COVID-19 related clinical and vaccination data of citizens currently from the physical form into digital assets which can be retrieved by any contact tracing apps like Aarogya Setu via APIs. Individuals can scan and retrieve data through a QR code

Prof Sadagopan, Director-IIIT Bangalore and Chairman of IIITB-IMACX Studios said, “By creating digital assets on the blockchain, it complements the existing COVID-19 applications like Aarogya Setu, Apthamitra (in Karnataka), etc. Using its state-of-the-art multi- admin module layer, BelYo will be able to simplify the tracking of all the COVID-19 patients in India – from symptoms to vaccination certificate in a decentralized manner, without compromising the privacy of the data.”

The institute had launched Setu Bhandhan, a Covid19 challenge in association with Mphasis to support IIITB’s startups with research and funds. BelYo gives a solution that is the need of the hour.

“With the help of this financial support, we would be able to expedite our platform rollout, expand our operations and onboard testing centers (hospitals and private labs) by the end of 2020. Going forward, BelYo is looking at 5% market share by 2023 of the total 100,000+ clinical labs in Indi ..

YoSync CEO Satish Shekar said that technology would also play a key role during the vaccination stage. BelYo plans to issue certificates for COVID-19 clinical records and immunization certificates on blockchain.

India’s first-ever COVID-19 blockchain platform – BelYo launched

Jul 24, 2020

Global blockchain start-up BelfricsBT, along with YoSync, a startup incubated at IIITB-IMACX Studios, has signed a research collaboration in agreement with IIIT Bangalore to jointly develop India’s first COVID-19 blockchain platform, BelYo. The project has been funded by the Mphasis F1 Foundation as a part of their larger outreach programme to tackle the pandemic in India.

BelYo uses the BelfricsBT Belrium blockchain platform to convert COVID-19 related clinical and vaccination data of citizens currently from the physical form into digital assets that can be retrieved by any contact tracing apps like Aarogya Setu via APIs. Using these APIs, an individual can scan and retrieve data as colour-coded results through a QR code, making the process 100 percent contact less and seamless at any point of entry during and post the COVID-19 crisis, claims the venture.

Speaking on the launch of BelYo, Prof. Sadagopan, Director-IIIT Bangalore and Chairman of IIITB-IMACX Studios said, “We had initiated a COVID-19 challenge “Setu Bhandhan” in association with Mphasis to support IIITB’s startups with research and funds. BelYo gives a solution that is the need of the hour. By creating digital assets on blockchain, it complements the existing COVID-19 applications like Aarogya Setu, Apthamitra (in Karnataka) etc. Using its state-of-the-art multi- admin module layer, BelYo will be able to simplify the tracking of all the COVID-19 patients in India – from symptoms to vaccination certificate in a decentralized manner, without compromising the privacy of the data.”

Over 90 percent of Indians have their medical records only in the physical form. The covid19 Pandemic has shown that it has become imperative for individuals to digitise their medical records for future use.

Currently, the platform is being tested in a few clinics enabling them to track details of their COVID-19 tests that are being conducted. The platform aims to reach out to ICMR approved 730 government labs and 270 private labs starting August second week.

Praveenkumar Vijayakumar, Founder & CEO of Belfrics Group said, “COVID-19 infections are on the rise both within India and across the world and there is a need to use technology to deal with this grave situation. With the help of this financial support, we would be able to expedite our platform rollout, expand our operations and onboard testing centres (hospitals and private labs) by the end of 2020. Going forward, BelYo is looking at a 5 percent market share by 2023 of the total 100,000+ clinical labs in India which would help us to reach a gross revenue target of $200 million within 5 years. We are also currently in talks with more investors to raise our Series A by the end of 2020.”

Speaking about the Platform, Satish Shekar, Founder & CEO YoSync said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently chaired a high-level meeting to evaluate the usage of technology to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. He stressed on the need of using the latest technological innovations to monitor and control the spread of COVID-19 across India and very importantly, he emphasized how technology could play a key role during vaccination stage.”

Praveen Kumar and Satish Shekar, both are optimistic that their platform could be tweaked to suit the vaccination plan of Government Of India in the shortest time possible and they also feel their API’s could be a great contributor to Aarogya Setu during the nationwide vaccination exercise.

BelYo plans to issue certificates for COVID-19 clinical records and immunization certificate on blockchain at less than Rs 20. The final documentation for COVID-19 would be vaccination record of citizens.

Once the country reaches that stage, recording and retrieving of such data will be vital for any economic activity. BelYo claims it is built to issue such digital certificates (Clinical and immunity) with “n” number of admins at the state or municipal level and union government as super admin. This will help monitor a nationwide exercise through technology during the vaccination stage for a huge population like India.

Both Praveenkumar and Satish claim that if BelYo becomes a part of the vaccination exercise, the venture could track the vaccine from the manufacturer to an individual who has been immunised. Each vaccine will have a reference code and the same can be mapped to the individual who has taken that vaccine, making the whole process 100 percent transparent. Moreover, the Prime minister sitting in his office will also be able to see the realtime data of vaccination drive across India.

The current market value of clinical labs is $176.7 billion with a CAGR at 7.1 percent till 2027 and the vaccine market is valued at $41 billion, expected to grow to $58.4 billion by 2024 at a CAGR of 7 percent.

BelfricsBT is the blockchain technology division of Belfrics and is already providing services to both government and private organizations for solutions that include car registration systems, ticketing systems, supply chain management and core data integrity management.​

Belfrics Group announces the launch of its KYC compliant Blockchain – Belrium

KUALA LUMPUR, MalaysiaDec. 24, 2018

Belfrics Group, a global blockchain technology firm that runs Fiat-crypto exchanges and blockchain development solutions across 10 countries, today announced the global launch of Belrium Mainnet – a first of its kind KYC compliant blockchain. Belrium aims to offer companies a secure, private, personalised and decentralised ecosystem that aims to minimize the repetition related to KYC compliance, saving considerable time and cost. Belrium is unique in this context as it enables businesses and enterprises to not only reduce the customer on-boarding time but also simplifies the compliance process by eliminating the need for repetition.

On the successful launch of the Belrium blockchain, the CEO & Founder of Belfrics, Praveenkumar said, “We are extremely delighted to see the mainnet go live. It has been an eventful year for Belfrics and the Belrium blockchain as we focused on getting governments and regulators to evaluate the strength and capabilities of our blockchain, rather than worry about the value of the instrument. Various national IDs, land records, universities, banks and charity organisation will soon be doing live transactions on Belrium blockchain. Our Belfrics Exchange itself is the first user of the Belrium blockchain as the traditional KYC verification system of the exchange will be replaced by Belrium blockchain verification.”

Public blockchains have traditionally struggled in terms of adoption with various regulators due to its nature of anonymity. Belrium, on the other hand, has been gaining traction silently due to its unique private and public combination blockchain. Santhosh Palavesh, the Chief innovation Officer of Belfrics Group said,“We have been constantly evolving the capabilities of our blockchain to align with the practical use cases of various industries. Belrium blockchain will have various national government transactions riding on our infrastructure in 2019. Belrium does not process any unverified wallet transaction on its public blockchain. The private blockchain, which is called BKVS (Belrium KYC Verification System) acts as the identity verifier for the wallets. We are the only blockchain to have a stringent financial framework which ensures data security, which is extremely crucial for government authorities.”

Along with the mainnet going live, Belfrics is also releasing two Dapps on the blockchain, a certificate issuance Dapp and a payroll Dapp. Praveen said,“These Dapps will give an easy access to small and medium enterprises to experience the capabilities of the distributed ledger technology within their business domain.”

Belfrics looks to sign on State govts for blockchain tech

Inks pact with AP government

MUMBAI, MARCH 13

Belfrics Global, a Singapore-based blockchain solution provider and a crypto asset exchange, is looking to convince various State governments and departments to adopt blockchain technology. It has signed an MoU with the Andhra Pradesh government in this regard, according to its founder and CEO, Praveen Kumar.

State governments can use blockchain solutions in many ways starting from error-free issuance of birth, marriage or death certificates to ensure faster and accurate contract bidding to speedy legal trials.

“We have been liasing with various state governments for on-boarding various public services on the blockchain. Andhra Government leads in blockchain adoption and we work very closely with them. We are talking to few banks too,” Kumar said, adding that the company has had a good traction in its blockchain application development solutions and expects this business to grow at a 300 per cent CAGR.

Belfrics, which entered the Indian market with its crypto-asset exchange last year, witnessed a bumpy ride following regulatory challenges with regard to crypto-currencies, especially Bitcoins after banking regulator RBI cautioned users from trading or dealing in digital currencies. The last nail in the coffin was after Finance Minister Arun Jaitely announced in his Budget speech that crypto currencies were not legal tenders following which all the major banks in the country withdrew their support from the crypto exchanges such as Zebpay, Unocoin, Belfrics and Coinsure.

“We had added customers steadily throughout the year for our exchange operations but now have taken a decision to halt taking INR deposits and trading services since last month and a half,” Kumar said, adding that the focus is on expanding the blockchain consultancy and development solution.

Belfrics already has various governments, universities and many private enterprises as its clients for blockchain consultancy and development solutions. “With the Central government’s reiteration of blockchain adoption, we expect to make considerable inroads to Indian enterprises for blockchain services in 2018,” he added.

The company is also launching its flagship KYC-compliant blockchain, Belrium, in April this year. “We will be powering governments and private institutions with Belrium KYC layer post launch, which reduce the time and cost considerably for KYC verification,” Kumar said.

The news comprises a follow-up to announcements from Bahrain’s government in September 2017 that indicated the country’s intention to develop ‘sandbox’ legislation for the cryptocurrency, industryakin, to those enacted by Singapore and the United Kingdom. Alongside the announcement, Khalid Al Rumaihi, the chief executive of the Economic Development Board of Bahrain, then indicated the country’s desire to issue bonds via distributed ledger technology. The move has been perceived as intended to further Bahrain’s bid to become a regional fintech hub, despite the nation’s small population.

Founded in 2014, the Kuala Lumpur-based company presently operates in Singapore, India, Kenya, China, Indonesia, Malaysia Dubai and Hong Kong, in addition to providing point of sale (POS) and other payment technology to merchants wanting to accept cryptocurrency as a method of payment. Belfrics’ Singaporean exchange comprises what it describes as a ‘global exchange’ that provides cryptocurrency pairings using USD as its base currency, whilst the company’s other exchanges are described as ‘local’ – exclusively offering pairings in the national currency for the country in which the exchange is domiciled. Belfrics has also indicated its intention to expand its African presence by opening exchanges based in Nigeria, Botswana, and Ghana.
