Overview

There is great anticipation and hope that the development of the Covid-19 vaccines will allow our lives to begin to return to normal. But the effectiveness of the vaccines depends on many factors including successful distribution. This is a place where software-enabled technologies — including emerging advances like blockchain — can play a role. While the potential benefits of blockchain technology remain underappreciated, its role in the distribution and security of the vaccine for Covid-19 presents an opportunity to help better understand how blockchain works, and how it benefits sectors across the economy.
