It was revealed that a county in the United States used Ethereum's blockchain to send nearly 1,000 digital marriage certificates to newlywed couples.
In April of last year, the Washoe County in the north of Nevada announced that he was collaborating with the startup blockchain, Titan Seal, offer digital marriage certificates.
Since then, about 950 digital certificates have been protected using the Ethereum blockchain, according to a report by the Reno Gazette Journal.
"April 10 was the first time a person got (a Washoe County digital marriage certificate) … The person had no idea that he was part of a pilot program," Titan Seal Co-Founder Phil Dhingra say the Reno Gazette Journal.
Using the Ethereum blockchain
Before Washoe County wedding certificates are sent by email, Titan Seal generates a secure cryptographic hash that represents the Ethereum blockchain certificate.
The hash is a unique number that can only be generated by a certified digital copy of the corresponding marriage certificate.
Washoe County strengthened its belief in the ledger, telling residents "It is very unlikely that Ethereum's blockchain could ever be hacked."
"There is no central authority or a computer to compromise, but there is a worldwide network of thousands of computers working together to protect the authenticity of transactions on the network," says the County on his website.
"This is one of the safest methods to store information that has ever been invented and has already generated a renaissance in some parts of the IT and financial sector.
"It is much safer than our current method of card certification (embossing, stamp and signature), which is the gold standard of paper certification, but it can still be theoretically falsified".
Australian state that extends the roll-out of blockchain driver licenses
The Government of New South Wales has successfully used accounting book technology to deliver driving licenses to 1400 residents in Dubbo, New South Wales, during a trial in 2018.
A second process is currently under way in Sydney's eastern beaches region and a state-level launch through an opt-in system is scheduled for the end of this year.
The licenses of the digital drivers tested in the NSW are supported SecureGrid LogGrid registry.
"The fact was to be in line to file government documents is coming to an end, as well as our dependence on physical identification cards to establish your identity or proof of age with the forces of the order or in authorized locations, "said Secure Logic CEO Santosh Devaraj.
