Ethereum Classic (ETC) for Africa
Ethereum Classic Labs, the team behind the Ethereum Classic (ETC) cryptocurrency, and the Unicef Innovations Fund will be co-investors in three programs addressing the most pressing problems of modern Africa.
The first one is OS City's solution to generate tamper-proof records in public procurement, contracting and energy, reducing red tape and corruption. It has been tested successfully in Chile.
Information and connecting
The second project is Prescripto, which is focused on the integrity and safety of personal data. It will be used to authenticate a patient's identity before unlocking their personal medical information.
Finally, the W3 team is building a ‘mesh messaging’ peer-to-peer system used to facilitate the exchange of information between smartphones connected to the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain. This can be of great importance for areas with a weak mobile connection.
