CTC has partnered with blockchain startup Tierion for a trial that will find government survey data secured on the bitcoin blockchain.
“We like being on the cutting edge of what’s going and we feel like this could be leading to more projects.”
The survey seeks to evaluate perspectives on issues including workforce demand and tax code awareness.
Wayne Vaughan, CEO of Tierion, has previously worked with CTC as web developer for his former business Fuscient. Vaughn explains that his interest in bitcoin started back in 2013 when he began mining and trading the coins as currency.
“I got involved in trading because I felt the tech was really important. I jumped in,” he said.
Vaughan explained that Tierion uses information to build a blockchain receipt that contains all the information you need to verify a piece of data.
