Authorities of Suzhou announced that a blockchain-powered pilot program will provide a wide range of notary services in Suzhou, China.
On June 5 China Quality News reported that this program aims to help millions of citizens access legal and government offices via the internet.
The pilot platform covers personal freedom, life, health, property rights, and more and is created by:
The Suzhou Municipal Market Supervision Bureau
The Suzhou Municipal Bureau of Justice.
All the materials will be available through the cloud.
Moreover, the audio and video records will be shared among notaries involved for legal purposes facilitating use of real-time tracing functions.
The network will be called the “Suzhou Notary Chain.”
Administrative law enforcement unit can use the system for online notarization and carry out the entire process through shared files on the cloud platform if a dispute occurs.
Unlike the conventional method of storing audio and video files within a law enforcement database, blockchain-based notary services platform will process everything from recording to distribution.
This guarantees “easy data storage, high security, non-tampering, and traceability, which will improve the transparency of the administrative law enforcement.”
