New Blockchain Project Is Designed to Help Stateless Rohingya Refugees

Blockchain-powered identity cards are going through a testing phase as a part of a new project that aims to allow Rohingya refugees from different countries in Southeast Asia. If proven to be successful, this technology could be a game changer for the Rohingya people who have been recently targeted by Myanmar military during an ethnic cleansing.    

The primal focus of the above-mentioned project is to tackle the problem of financial exclusion by providing access to banking services. It would enable fast and cheap cross-border transactions for stateless Rohingyans. The long-term goal is to secure their legal rights and open doors for education and healthcare.
