In this second blog post, we will dive into issues related to the land registration and how blockchain technology can enhance and secure the process through decentralization.

To keep it very simple and concise, Blockchain is a continuously growing list of information stored together into blocks (registries of data), which are cryptographically secured, linked (in chronological order) and distributed across a network of computers.

Thanks to this decentralization mechanism, every computer in the network has an updated…

In this series of blog posts, we will dive into issues related to the land registration and how blockchain technology can ease access to such services to all citizens especially in Africa.

Context elements

Land tenure is the legal system that rules on :

  • who owns a piece of land,
  • who can use it,

  • under what conditions.

Currently 70% of the world’s population has no access to conventional land registration/tenure systems. Worldwide, less than 32 countries give access…

In the last article of this series of blog posts, we will briefly sum up the benefits of Decentralized Identity and how blockchain technology can contribute to it.

What Are the Benefits of Decentralized ID?

European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) looks for increasing of ID standards that modern Digital ID solutions need. Governments showed the willingness to use blockchain technology to confer identities to “unidentified” people in developing countries and to protect citizens’ personal identification information in developed countries.

Blockchain technology offers…

In this series of blog posts, we will briefly present the major issues related to the digitization of identification documents and how blockchain technology can contribute to it.

Citizen Identification (3/4) : Self Sovereign identity (SSI)

In this series of blog posts, we will briefly present the major issues related to the digitization of identification documents and how blockchain technology can contribute to it.

What Can be the Use Cases of Blockchain in Digital ID Management?

Digital ID in a decentralized environment can be used in many ways, for exemple:

  • Self Sovereign identity
  • Data Portability
  • Data Monetization

In the second article of this serie of blog posts, we will continue to present issues related to the digitization of identification documents going technically deeper on how blockchain technology can contribute to it.

How do Digital Identities Work on a Blockchain?

Blockchain technology by developing the concept of decentralization allows users to create and manage digital identities through :

  • Decentralized identifiers (DID)
  • Identity management
  • Encryption

What is Digital Identity?

A digital identity results from the use of personal information and from the data created by individuals when using online services that…

In this series of blog posts, we will briefly present the major issues related to the digitization of identification documents and how blockchain technologies can contribute to its success.

At its simplest level, identity is a collection of information about an individual, place, or…

In this article we will explain, step-by-step, how to download Yoroi, create a wallet, receive funds and of course how to delegate to [POA].

Reminder:
In order to be sure not to compromise any of your precious ada, your wallets must be downloaded from official and secure sources.

At Proof of Africa, we recommand you to install one of those 2 wallets :
- Yoroi, developed by EMURGO for a light Wallet,
- Daedalus, developed by…

Cardano Blockchain network secure stakepool staking passive rewards ouroboros stake pool proof of africa POA how functioning

In this article, we will discuss about which strategy should be considered by ada holders who do not have the skill or will to run a stakepool. We will explore the different options to benefit the most from their willingness to help securing and developing the network through either Staking and/or Pledging to stakepool(s).

To better understand what incentives and how the Cardano protocol uses them to secure the network, please have a look on our former article.

Incentives for people securing the network — Passive rewards for ada holders

To operate and secure its network, the Cardano blockchain uses “Proof-of-stake” in which the block validator and producer is randomly chosen by the blockchain algorithm depending…

Dans cet article, nous discuterons de la manière dont le protocole de «preuve d’enjeu» (PoS) de Cardano est conçu et incite les personnes à s’impliquer dans le projet et à sécuriser le réseau.

Selon IOHK, «l’un des objectifs de conception du mécanisme incitatif de Cardano est d’aligner le mieux possible les incitations monétaires sur le respect du protocole: si chaque partie prenante suit ses propres intérêts financiers, le système devrait réussir à se stabiliser. …

In this article, we will discuss on how Cardano “Proof-of-Stake” (PoS) protocol is designed to incentive people getting involve in the project helping to secure the network.

According to IOHK, “A design goal of the mechanism is to align monetary incentives as perfectly as possible with protocol adherence: If every stakeholder follows their own financial interests, the system should settle into a desirable state. If possible, there should never be a conflict of interest between maximizing rewards…
