Malaysian Newspaper Features LuxTag and eScroll in The Article About Impact of The Blockchain Technology

On August 19th, 2019, the Malaysian newspaper “New Straits Times” published an article entitled “Impact of the Blockchain Technology” featuring Rene Bernard, CEO and Co-Founder of LuxTag. Besides, LuxTag’s trustworthy partner, Dagang NeXchange Group, also shared their thoughts on the topic.

The article intends to highlight the readiness of such innovative technology as blockchain to be adopted to serve the needs of different segments, including government, law enforcement, education, regulatory, real estate, health care, financial services, and retail. According to the article, the implementation of blockchain in real life will require some actions of the leading figures of industries, which will mean changing of the mindset and educating sectors’ players. “…without the right mindset, adoption of this technology will likely fail,” said Abdul Fattah, National Standards Committee Chairman.

As an example of the adoption of blockchain, the author emphasizes eScroll, a revolutionary platform aimed to verify educational and professional credentials. The platform has been recently launched by DagangNet and Luxtag and is already used by several Malaysian universities. It is a working example of a successful adaptation of blockchain in order to secure valuable documents and prevent their counterfeiting. “At LuxTag, we see ourselves as creators, inventors, and innovators. Dagang Net, on the other hand, is very good at servicing businesses with productized solutions. This is a perfect fit for strategic cooperation,” said Rene Bernard at World Blockchain Summit 2019 in Kuala Lumpur.

LuxTag is proud to bring the input to this article and share the idea of the blockchain implementation with readers alongside other professionals.
