British Commonwealth Adopts Blockchain to Fight Cross-Border Crime

4 May

The British Commonwealth announced on 3rd May that there is a project to develop a Blockchain app to combat cross-border crime.  A secure messaging system will be created to help law enforcement and prosecutors in member countries to co-operate more effectively in criminal investigations.

The planned project was announced at the 3-day virtual currency and blockchain conference, Consensus2016, which commenced on 28th April in New York. Built on the blockchain technology which supports virtual currencies such as Bitcoin it will be a record of digital events which can only be updated by agreement between the participants using the system.
