Blockchain-Based Identity And Medical Record System For Africa Planned By Kamari And ZeU

Blockchain, News | February 12, 2020 By:

Blockchain payments firm Kamari and blockchain firm ZeU Crypto Networks have joined forces to roll out a new blockchain-based identity and medical record system across the African continent.

Kamari is building a digital ecosystem for the over one billion people across Africa with lotteries, gaming, sports betting, and a payment platform centered around ethereum-based Kamari Coin (KAM). The company has secured national lottery licenses across multiple African countries that will allow them to market to over 50 million adult customers exclusively.

Based in Canada, ZeU Crypto Networks is a Canadian technology company that capitalizes on the adoption of distributed ledger technology (DLT) and creates solutions across diverse industries tackling the challenges associated with big data, security, transparency, and tokenomics.

The two companies will collaborate on deploying a blockchain-based medical record and identity system, which will be combined with the mobile blockchain wallet and incentive programs being built by Kamari, across Africa. The goal of the system is to advance public health initiatives, enable individual data ownership, and drive preventative medicine for millions of people without bank accounts and digital records.

According to a press release, ZeU’s Software as a Service (SaaS) infrastructure for healthcare is a turnkey solution for clients to leverage the monetizable value of their data.

“ZeU’s SaaS safeguards sensitive medical data and promotes more accurate health care records,” Kamari said. “It also empowers users to derive value from their data while allowing government and healthcare entities to analyze metadata for research and medical advancements. Global deployment could lower healthcare costs while creating healthier populations. ZeU’s SaaS is customizable to client requirements.”

Currently, the companies are deploying the beta version of ZeU’s SaaS in collaboration with ZeU’s partner VSEKUR and other ecosystem partners. The initial phases of testing should be deployed by the end of Q1 or early Q2. The partners are also involved in other initiatives that will, as a consequence, grow their joint ecosystems and allow cross-feeding to their banking, remittance, micro-lending, and lottery initiatives.

“Kamari looks to provide the fundamental blockchain infrastructure across Africa that will provide an incredible range of life-changing services to billions of people in the decades to come,” said Chris Cleverly, CEO of Kamari. “We are at the beginning of an incredible opportunity for the entire continent to essentially leap into the forefront of innovation and infrastructure using blockchain. We are extremely excited about this initiative with ZeU and the opportunity it has to bring positive change to many people across the continent.”
