The Ministry of Health stated that the Cadastro de Pessoas Físicas, CPF, will be the indispensable document for the Covid-19 vaccination system.

Thus, unlike the other vaccines applied in the Single Health System, SUS, the Caderneta de Vaccinação will not be the valid document to be immunized against the coronavirus.

„Unlike other campaigns, it will require the identification of the citizen, through the use of the CPF,“ said the director of the Department of Informatics of SUS, Jacson Venâncio de Barros

In this way, the Ministry of Health intends to have greater control over the distribution of vaccines.

According to the Ministry, this is essential to prevent a person from taking different doses of immunizers, as well as allowing the tracking of possible adverse reactions.

„Today, we have one, two, three possible vaccines to apply. And when we have four, 10? If we have no control, the patient can take one dose of vaccine A, and we have to prevent him from taking a second dose of vaccine B,“ Venâncio said.

CPF and Blockchain registration

Thus, in the vaccination system for coronavirus being developed in Brazil the CPF will be the „validator“ of the user in the blockchain platform of the Ministry.

Vaccination against Coronavirus in Brazil will be registered in blockchain by the Ministry of Health
According to Elmo Raposo Oliveira, System Development Coordinator – DATASUS in the Ministry of Health, when the citizen takes the vaccine against the coronavirus this data will be registered within the National Health Data Network (RNDS), blockchain application, built with Hyperledger Fabric.

„Then the vaccine of Covid-19 will already be within our structure of the National Health Data Network, NSDN. So when you take the vaccine you will already hit the NNDS here and we will already know who took it,“ he said.

Also according to the Ministry the citizen, after taking the vaccine and having your data registered in blockchain, you can print your vaccination certificate by accessing a QRCode.

This QR Code will be issued on a platform of the Single Health System (SUS): each vaccinated person can save or share the proof.

In this way, as the data will be registered in blockchain it can be validated by third parties, including the use of a security key to ensure authenticity.

Vaccination
Currently all coronavirus tests done in Brazil are already registered in the blockchain-based system of the Ministry of Health.

„The first test has been done with Covid’s exams. All the laboratories that perform this test in Brazil are connected with the NSDS and record the results of the test on the network,“ said the director of the Ministry.

The vaccination of the population against the coronavirus should begin in January for the whole of Brazil.

However, in the state of São Paulo, vaccination may begin in December due to an agreement by the state government with the company Sinovac.

Romanian authorities to auction confiscated Bitcoin (BTC)

Romanian authorities are going to auction off confiscated bitcoin. For the first time in the country’s history, the Romanian authorities are organising an auction of bitcoin confiscated in a fraud case.

Bitcoin auction

On 2 October, the Romanian National Agency announced the auction of the digital gold. The auction will take place on the basis of a ruling by the Ploiesti Court. In the ruling, the court obliged the auction of the bitcoin.

In a press release of the ANABI, it also became clear about the procedure. The winner of the auction has to inform the National Agency about his or her public BTC addresses. More specifically, the press release stated that it had to be BTC addresses linked to a crypto trading platform.

The exchange to which the Bitcoin Victory is sent must be a registered entity which complies with the financial regulations in Romania. It is not entirely clear why this is being done in this way. The winner of the auction can, of course, remove the bitcoin from the exchange in question.

It does show, however, that the Romanian authorities are not, in principle, in favour of in-house bitcoin. However, this seems to be a superfluous requirement, as the identity of the buyer must be known before the auction can be organised.

Auctioning is a first in Romania

The auction of bitcoin in Romania is therefore a first for the country. However, events of this kind have already taken place all over the world. Think, for example, of the bitcoin seized during the infamous Silk Road closure.

The online marketplace was run by Ross Ulbricht, who was sentenced to life imprisonment for his practices in relation to the exchange.

Multimillionaire Tim Draper bought more than 30,000 bitcoin at this auction, almost as much as MicroStrategy did recently. However, Draper only paid between $370 and $640 per bitcoin. A lot less than MicroStrategy paid last month.

PayPal om Merchants toe te staan Cryptocurrency te accepteren, volgens Aspiriant Managing Director.

PayPal werkt aan de integratie van cryptocurrencies in hun bedrijf, volgens Sandi Bragar, een managing director van de investeringsbeheermaatschappij Aspiriant.

Bragar zegt in een nieuw interview op CNBC dat de openheid van de betalingsreus voor crypto een van de redenen is waarom Aspiriant het als een gunstige voorraad voor investeerders ziet. De andere, legt ze uit, is de impact van de coronaviruspandemie op de handel.

„Het staat in de voorhoede van alle e-commerce en digitale betalingen, en we denken dat er een enorme vraag is omdat mensen thuis zijn gebleven en handel hebben gedreven vanuit hun bank, vanuit hun bed, waar ze ook rondhangen. En we denken dat dit doorgaat als we deze pandemie achter ons laten en dat mensen uiteindelijk meer gaan doen en weer een normaal leven gaan leiden. 

We vinden het ook leuk dat PayPal met handelaren werkt om crypto in de kudde te brengen, en we denken dat dat echt belangrijk zal zijn als meer van de cryptocurrency’s meer mainstream worden in de komende jaren.“

In juli verschenen er berichten dat PayPal van plan was een partnerschap aan te kondigen met het in New York gevestigde trustbedrijf Paxos om de levering van crypto-activa af te handelen zodra het de cryptocurrencydiensten lanceert.

Paxos is de grootste emittent van gereguleerde stabiele valuta’s, waaronder Binance USD (BUSD). Het financiële bedrijf is ook wettelijk toegestaan om Bitcoin Trader (BTC) en Ethereum (ETH) aan te houden namens institutionele beleggers.
