Blockchain is the latest technology that allows decentralized secure storage and sharing of information. It has the potential to minimize corruption and friction and to increase trust. Blockchain technology has benefits beyond finance and has the potential to apply across a variety of other fields.
It is why Mr. Tolga Akcay has used blockchain technology to Create Exvisa, innovative technology to digitize visas and passports. Exvisa is the technology that will provide a secure online visa and passport to perform immigration, emigration, and relocation tasks more appropriately and effectively. By using blockchain technology Tolga Akcay has ensured the cryptonization of any sensitive data and information to make it hacker-proof.
