Hi there, In our newsletter this week we bring you the latest developments from Blockpass as we maintain the isolation and social distancing measures that continue to be so vital in combating the spread of COVID-19. Our first article this week examines how Blockpass is looking to partner with healthcare providers to enable proof of individuals health status to allow those who can the ability to return to normality as much as possible.

We also highlight a new option open to Blockpass users through Krios in our Marketplace section, and an article discussing the main points of KYC. Finally, we sit down to talk to Tin Nguyen, Technical Subleader at Blockpass, about his work for the company. As always, we hope you are all staying safe in these difficult times. Keep physically healthy and call friends or family to keep up both your and their mental health.

Aiding in the Battle Against COVID-19
With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to spread and influencing the way we live our lives, many countries are beginning to look into ways of mitigating its impact on our day-to-day activities and the economy. The chief concern in this regard is getting those who are well back to work, but to achieve this there needs to be a method of proving that.
Although Blockpass may not be able to carry out medical tests to check whether someone has COVID-19 or not, or if they are immune to it, what we can do is allow a fast, efficient and privacy-focused method for people to verify the results of their test, as well as provide details such as when it took place.
