Blockchain Mate - building trusted networks for offical records, certification and compliance data

Data. Trusted Data. Essential for government. Essential for industry. Essential between government and industry. Supporting the individual.

Communicating, sharing and aggregating data in a connected world without sacrificing sensitivity, privacy or security is possible with the advent of blockchain. Government departments, companies and individuals are in possession of multitudes of information. Electronic information. Yet we still see - and are often required to produce - paper certificates or paper records!

For example, it is estimated in the USA that $200 billion is wasted annually because health insurance payers and healthcare providers don’t have instant access to the right information at the right time. In Australia, as an example, there are different forms and protocols in each state for the same purpose - yet we are governed by a national medicare system...

BlockChain Mate aims to solve this challenge. Not with typical networks that store records or document management systems. We have a better solution...

WHAT IS BLOCKCHAIN MATE ?

BlockChain Mate provides purpose built private, permissioned blockchains for specific industry vertical applications.  As the data is typically sourced from disparate organisations - a traditional database is not suitable. Blockchain Mate provides the infrastructure to link the silos /repositories of each organisation by donating key streams of information about the data (not the actual data itself). The multiple streams used in BlockChain Mate's blockchain contain only a hash of the item’s payload embedded inside the chain, alongside the item’s keys and some other metadata. The payload itself is stored locally by the publisher and propagated to the stream’s subscribers using peer-to-peer file sharing techniques, with the on-chain hash providing verification.

BlockChain Mate never stores the data - it facilities the sharing and aggregation of data where user defined permissions allow. 

HOW DOES THE SYSTEM WORK?

BlockChain Mate is a private blockchain service. It enables secure and compliant transport of data. It operates using permissioned subscribers to blockchain nodes. And it verifies the sources and destinations of data in real time. 

The multiple nodes, time-stamping, user permissions and cryptography of the blockchain ensure the data cannot be tampered with or altered in retrospect. Perfect for the carriage and aggregation of sensitive and confidential information as Blockchain Mate does not store data. 

WHAT IS BLOCKCHAIN MATE'S BUSINESS MODEL?

Blockchain Mate builds, manages, operates and maintains industry or application specific blockchains. Industry participants & consortiums pay annual access fees to utilise the blockchain. 

IS BLOCKCHAIN MATE A NETWORK OR A PROTOCOL?

Blockchain Mate is both a blockchain /  distributed ledger and a protocol. As a blockchain, Blockchain Mate does three things. First, it sets policies and configures data layers. Second, it imbeds security in every transfer. Third, it manages detection, authorisation, and compliance. As a protocol,Blockchain Mate authorises anyone with appropriate rights (permission), which are assessed in the control layer, to communicate, access or transfer data.

WHAT APPLICATIONS CAN  BLOCKCHAIN MATE SUPPORT?

The first question - is a blockchain solution required? Click on the is link for a better idea on using a traditional database or you need a blockchain:

BlockChain Mate is perfectly suited for certification, security, identification, authentication, compliance, analytics applications. Where trust, infallibility, being tamper proof and usually where multiple unrelated parties to to access, exchange or aggregate data.
