1. UCOT was invited to participate in the discussion of the National Blockchain Roadmap of Australia and the release of the roadmap
On February 7, the Australian government officially launched the national blockchain strategy and released the “the National Blockchain Roadmap” (hereinafter referred to as the “roadmap”). During the preparation period of the roadmap, UCOT, as an outstanding representative of the blockchain industry in Australia, was invited to the Australian parliament building for discussion and product demonstration. UCOT was highly rated by Rob Bollard, chief technology officer of IP Australia, during special seminars and product demonstrations. In addition, at the invitation of Data61 department of the Australian Academy of Science, UCOT participated in the closed-door CRC seminar on blockchain industry, and communicated with blockchain experts from Australian government, regulatory authorities, scientific research institutions, universities and enterprises, and shared the layout and product implementation of UCOT in the blockchain industry.
The roadmap describes the huge opportunities of blockchain technology in the wine industry, banking and finance and other areas such as logistics, agriculture, trusted certificates and smart contracts. UCOT also actively responds to the call and is committed to applying blockchain technology to supply chain and logistics, so as to be the model of blockchain products. At present, UCOT is active in global business layout, treat Oceania and Asia as the main strategic markets. On the basis of integrating advanced science and technology, management mode and high-quality resources of various countries, we will produce blockchain products, build an all-round traceability ecosystem and provide high-quality services of full cycle, high quality and multi-dimension.2. UCOT helps prevent and control coronavirus condition, and provides 110,000 blockchain anti-counterfeiting tracing smart labels for free
UCOT has teamed up with UPcare Australia to provide anti-counterfeiting traceability labels for UPplus, a product with the effect of moistening the throat, improving immunity and killing bacteria. The spray was developed by a team of leading Australian experts and medical professors in the context of the global spread of the new coronavirus. Currently, the spray has been tested for toxicity by the Australian food and drug administration’s TGA and has been certified as safe and effective. In the future, it will be sent to Wuhan for more clinical trials to help alleviate the global epidemic.
In order to ensure the authenticity and effectiveness of products, UCOT takes advantage of its technical advantages in blockchain to provide UPplus spray products with QR code anti-counterfeiting tracing labels containing product information and purchase links. By scanning the QR code attached to the product bottle, users can obtain details such as product name, production date, origin, production batch, expiration date, and traceability map. Users can click the scanned product picture to purchase the product. At the same time, UPplus’s product traceability information will also be recorded in UTMS to ensure data is stored securely and not tampered with. It is worth mentioning that in view of the new coronavirus epidemic, UCOT will distribute 110,000 QR codes tracing to the source for free to help prevent and control the epidemic, highlight the business value of enterprises and fulfill social obligations. In this outbreak, UCOT has been focusing on the epidemic area and is committed to realizing the perfect combination of blockchain technology and anti-epidemic biomedical technology, so as to ensure that the products are not counterfeited, and the efficacy can be effectively played. In the future, UCOT will continue to keep pace with social development and make continuous efforts to assume social responsibilities.
3. The new UPhoto blockchain camera with new video functions will be launched soon
UPhoto is one of the important products of UCOT blockchain IoT ecosystem.UPhoto is a photo verification app built on the UCOT blockchain that will seek to address the rise of digitally manipulated photos and restore trust between parties. When you take a photo with UPhoto, the data from the camera lens is captured directly along with key metadata information. UPhoto creates a fingerprint of the digital file which is then recorded onto the blockchain. The properties of blockchain mean once it is recorded it can no longer be altered. This ensures that the authenticity of the image stays true to what was seen by the camera sensor at the moment of capture. Photos taken and uploaded by UPhoto are guaranteed to be authentic, stored securely and tamper-proof once recorded onto the blockchain. Last month, we made deep improvements in functionality, login/logout, and software downloads. In February, UPhoto continued to test and improve the watermarking feature and added video features. In addition, the new version of UPhoto will have more user-friendly features and interface design, striving to upgrade the user experience and provide the best quality blockchain camera products. The latest version of UPhoto will be available in major mobile app markets on March 6 and expect it to shine in all scenarios.

In the medical area, the blockchain cameras can record and disclose the true number of infections, deaths and cures, and achieve the synchronization of the blockchain updating. Once the data is updated to the blockchain, it cannot be edited, thus guarantee the credibility of the information made public. At the same time, epidemic data of the blockchain can also be shared among scientific research institutions to accelerate the introduction of effective treatment plans and promote the rational distribution of medical resources. For the fundraising, the blockchain camera can record the arrival and distribution of donated materials, so as to ensure that the data will not be tampered with, reduce the possibility of manipulating public benefit projects for profit, and realize the transparency of the whole donation process. For the distributed telecommuting, the use of the blockchain camera can achieve the remote signing, update the document to the blockchain, to facilitate the online business.9.
