As far as identity verification and luggage tracking goes, it has a great potential in modern tourism industry. The blockchain applications seems to have a lot to add in the process of verifying the traveler’s identity, as well as simplifying and improving luggage tracking.
The blockchain is the technological infrastructure that was behind the launch of bitcoin in 2009. At its core is a highly encrypted P2P network that stores information as a database, but in the blockchain each node in the network saves a complete copy of the record book.
This system prevents the data from being altered by only one of the parties, which guarantees that they maintain their integrity and that it is practically impossible to hack them.
The blockchain technology together with the mobile and biometrics, can put an end to inefficiency and the traveler’s frustration, that has been caused until now by the use of disconnected and outdated systems.
