We help our clients to make informed decisions and operate effectively within them.

Digital Verification

Storage of documents has become a very important thing in our current lifestyle. With this rising importance of documents, the theft and forgery of documents is also increasing. There is a very great need for the protection and authentication of documents to keep it from being destroyed, manipulated or forged. We provide descentralized blockchain solutions to secure documents. Blockchain is transparent, open and accesible to everybody, immutable, and secure, powered by strong cryptography.

IoT Traceability

By leveraging blockchain and IoT technology, the logistics industry solution provided by Bluegate enables the participants to record the core data arising from transportation. The data collected will be stored on the Bluegate Blockchain, thus making it possible to create new logistics and business models. In addition, various digital value-added services can be provided based on the data stored on the blockchain.

Product lifecycle

Bluegate uses blockchain and Smart Tag(NFC/RFID/QR Code) to implement the traceability of retail products' entire lifecycle management. End consumers can check and verify a product's information via the Bluegate Pro mobile app (or client-integrated SDK). The retail solution can also contribute to effective channel management, after-sales service, and convenient financial services such as insurance for high value goods.

Africa

is a key territory on the global map. Rich in oil and natural resources, the continent holds a strategic position.
Africa is the world’s fastest-growing region for foreign direct investment.

It has approximately 30 percent of the earth’s remaining mineral resources.

Sub-Saharan Africa has six of the world’s 10 fastest-growing economies.

China’s technical competencies and industrial experiences can help Africa to build an effective industrial economy, while African resources and commodity potential can help sustain China’s manufacturing sectors.

East Africa and China

Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) into East Africa more than doubled in 2019 buoyed by China’s increased interest in the region’s manufacturing, resources, construction and services sector. EAC’s Trade and Investment Report (2019) shows that FDIs into the region surged to $11.5 billion in 2019 from $5.7 billion in 2018.

According to the report China was the largest investor in 2019, accounting for 59.7 percent of the total FDI inflows into the region ($7b), with significant realised investments in construction, manufacturing and services.

Inflows to Uganda increased by almost 20 percent mainly on account of investments in the extractives sector as well as major infrastructure projects like power dams and roads.

Liberalized and strong economy in the region. Kenya is the largest and the most advanced economy in East and Central Africa; with strong growth prospects supported by an emerging, urban middle class and an increasing appetite for high-value goods and services. Kenya has received sh488.82 billion financial support from China since 1964 when bilateral relations between the two countries begun.

Blockchain explained

If you find yourself wondering how blockchain works or what it is, here’s a brief explanation.

Blockchains are a new form of database. They store transactions (such as transfers, deliveries, or purchases) in blocks. Their advantages arise primarily from two principles:

 

.
.

  • A blockchain works decentrally. All participants first determine what information should go into the blockchain – they agree, so to speak, on certain rules of cooperation. Then they store all transactions on the blockchain as equals and monitor each other. There is no central server that could fail or be manipulated. Anyone who tries to change data later on would have to do so with more than half of all participants.

 

  • Each block receives a digital fingerprint known as a “hash”. And each block contains the hash of the previous block and thus its encoded content. This means that all blocks are linked together (hence the word “chain”). So if someone were to change a block of data, the manipulation would immediately attract attention because the content and fingerprint would no longer match.

-

If you are interested in blockchain and crypto technology as a way to change the world, look beyond Bitcoin.

Bluegate blockchain solutions have a real application purpose, real partnerships, and solves existing trade and supply chain business challenges. With actual applications and partnerships. Representing real, physical assets. To know more about the solutions we provide, check MADINI Africa
