The Missing Pieces of Contact Tracing

How Web3 has the Mechanisms for a Successful Contact Tracing Application

Shortcomings of Current Solutions

Tokenization of Contact

Contact tracing by trading digital information is very similar to Apple and Google’s platform; however, this removes the centralization of information by large corporations.

Transaction sponsorship has the potential to make user interaction even easier because they no longer need to worry about gas fees that typically mark a blockchain transaction. Additionally, users could be incentivized to remain active participants with rewards of CFX tokens. And the power of CFX tokens lies in the growing number of protocols we’re building and integrating.

Celer solves this problem by incorporating sidechain technology as their State Guardian Network (SGN) which handles any dispute cases and if one participant in a channel is offline.

The reward mechanism creates a monetary incentive for users to continue to use the application, and the CFX reward has utility on a much larger platform — it can be spent, converted, staked, or used for development. The funding method for the rewards could be staking interest on Conflux Network, outside investors, or other fundraising methods.
