|Title:||The Role of Blockchain to Fight Against COVID-19||Authors:||Kalla, Anshuman; Hewa, Tharaka; Mishra, Raaj Anand; Ylianttila, Mika; Liyanage, Madhusanka||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/11507||Date:||4-Aug-2020||Online since:||2020-08-27T10:43:33Z||Abstract:||IEEE The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected almost all aspects of human life, various sectors of business, and regions of the world. The flow of human activities halted for several months, and are now being carefully redefined to align with guidelines and recommendations to avoid the spread of the novel coronavirus. In contrast to other pandemics the world has witnessed in the past, the technological advancements of the current era are a boon that can play a key role in safeguarding humanity. In this work, we begin by highlighting general challenges that have arisen during the COVID-19 pandemic. Next, to gauge the applicability of blockchain as a key enabling technology, we identify potential use cases to meet current needs. Further, for each use case, we present a high-level view of how blockchain can be leveraged and discuss the expected performance. Finally, we highlight the challenges that must be addressed to harness the full potential of blockchain technology and discuss plausible solutions.||Funding Details:||European Commission||metadata.dc.description.othersponsorship:||Academy of Finland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||IEEE||Journal:||IEEE Engineering Management Review||Copyright (published version):||2020 IEEE||Keywords:||Smart contract; Organizations; Education; Pandemic; COVID-19; Blockchain; Coronavirus||DOI:||10.1109/EMR.2020.3014052||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
