ShareRing, the enterprise-focused blockchain company, has launched an anonymous e-passport app with contact tracing in an effort to revive the $9 trillion global tourism industry. It will offer 2.6 million hotel and activity providers that currently use one of the company’s services.

It has been reported that ShareRing’s app, which focuses on tourism’s $9 trillion tourism industry, allows users to upload important documentation, such as e-visa on arrival (eVOA), passport information, travel insurance, flight and accommodation bookings, and a negative COVID-19 test result. 

However, when a user of the app subsequently tests positive to the virus, the app will anonymously send the necessary information to the government, allowing others to be notified if they have been in contact.

It has been analyzed that the app can also integrate with eVOA systems, travel insurance companies, airlines, hotels, and other relevant organizations, allowing companies to scan the app to reveal test results without revealing any personal information.

Jane Sadler-Kidd, the Co-Founder of ShareRing, explained that documentation and personal information does not leave the device.

He said:

When someone signs up for a ShareRing ID, we take their photo, video selfie, name, DOB, address, etc and store it in an encrypted file that never leaves the user’s device.  We also take a ‘fingerprint’ of the data and documentation and store that on the blockchain.”

As per the report, in order to speed up adoption, ShareRing enables governments and businesses to integrate the passport app on existing solutions without using the ShareRing brand.

Kidd said that the COVID-19 passport was low-cost, and appealing to consumers.

Thus, he added:

“It encourages adoption among the population by building it in a way that provably safeguards their privacy.”
