In the midst of the pandemic, cryptocurrency organization ZCash has begun developing its own contact tracing system to stem the spread of the coronavirus.
The ZCash application will be used to track people who have come into contact with the virus, ensuring that user information is always kept private. Many companies, both in the mainstream and decentralized ecosystems, have stepped up to contribute what they can. Experts have said that contact tracing was one of the easiest ways to decrease the pressure on local governments and stem the spread.
According to ZCash, one of the key objectives of the application will be to operate across platforms as well as in several regions around the world and will be compatible with any mobile device.
