阿根廷将部署区块链进行天然气分配

2020-3-20 13:51

 

昨天,阿根廷区块链公司IOV实验室宣布,为该国的天然气分销系统推出Gasnet区块链网络。阿根廷天然气监管机构Enargas最初是为天然气分销巨头Gasnor开发的,现已批准在全国范围内部署区块链解决方案。


Gasnet是由IOV实验室和区块链公司Grupo Sabra为Gasnor开发的,该公司为全国近200万客户提供服务。Enargas的目标是将阿根廷所有9家天然气分销公司都纳入区块链平台。调节器和Gasnor各自操作Gasnet上的一个节点。


Gasnet建立在已批准的RSK企业区块链的基础上,记录所有用于认证新燃气安装和重新连接服务的交易。它通过一个单一的平台,将客户、燃气安装商、大型燃气分销商和监管机构Enargas联系在一起。


该平台的主要目标是实现造纸过程的自动化,并监控连接消费者与燃气网络的1万家燃气服务提供商的质量和安全。


IOV Labs首席执行官Diego Gutierrez Zaldivar表示:“我们非常高兴能够帮助Gasnor通过使用由RSK和RIF平台支持的区块链技术,为天然气行业带来更多的透明度和可追溯性,并通过这样做为客户提供更有效的成本效益和服务体验。”


Gasnet将帮助公司记录认证,衡量服务提供商的质量,并识别问题区域。该解决方案的目标是将传统的新天然气安装流程边缘化,目前该流程需要基于纸张的通信来减慢该流程。


对于监管机构来说,Gasnet将提供更好的合规监管。IOV实验室表示,Gasnet成员目前正在整合解决方案。


现有的气体服务提供商将使用RIF名称服务在Gasnet上注册、验证和实现数字身份。RSK开发了RIF名称服务,它支持通过人类可读的名称来标识区块链地址。此外,新的gas服务提供者可以使用RIF名称服务进行远程注册。


“区块链的实现解决方案之上RSK和RIF由Grupo拉为我们的组织是一个重要的里程碑,使简化流程,降低成本,改善上市时间,最重要的是提供更好的用户体验,”卡洛斯·阿明说,Gasnor CIO。


IOV Labs的前身是RIF Labs,它开发基于RSK的解决方案,RSK是一个设计用于处理比特币的智能合约平台,不过Gasnet解决方案得到了许可。RIFOS旨在增加存储、通信和网关等功能。


有一个相关的RIF (RSK基础架构)令牌,它目前的市值为2300万美元,一个月内下跌了近60%,大部分是在科罗娜崩溃之前。


阿根廷区块链产业蓬勃发展,政府成立了区块链联邦阿根廷(BFA)。几周前,中国暂停了区块链公司的注册,理由是需要加强监管控制。


IOV实验室还参与了NEC阿根廷公司与非政府组织Bitcoin Argentina和IDB Lab共同发起的数字身份融入项目。

 

Yesterday, Argentine blockchain firm IOV Labs announced the launch of the Gasnet blockchain network for the country’s natural gas distribution system. Initially developed for the gas distribution giant Gasnor, Argentina’s gas regulator Enargas has approved the nationwide deployment of the blockchain solution. 

Gasnet was developed by IOV Labs and blockchain firm Grupo Sabra for Gasnor, which services nearly two million customers in the country. Enargas is aiming to bring all nine gas distribution companies in Argentina onto the blockchain platform. The regulator and Gasnor each operate a node on Gasnet. 

Gasnet is built on the permissioned RSK Enterprise blockchain and records all transactions for certification of new gas installations and reconnection of services. It connects customers, gas installers, the big gas distributors and the regulator, Enargas, using a single platform. 

The key goals for the platform are the automation of paper processes and to monitor the quality and safety of 10,000 gas service providers who connect consumers to the gas network.

“We are very excited to assist Gasnor in bringing more transparency and traceability to the gas industry through blockchain technology powered by RSK and RIF platforms, and by doing so to enable a more cost effective and service experience to its customers,” said Diego Gutierrez Zaldivar, CEO of IOV Labs. 

Gasnet will help companies to record certifications, measure the quality of service providers, and identify problem areas. The solution aims to sideline the traditional process of new gas installations, which currently requires paper-based communication slowing down the process. 

For the regulator, Gasnet will enable better compliance oversight. IOV Labs said Gasnet members are currently in the process of integrating the solution. 

Existing gas service providers will register, verify and implement digital identities on Gasnet using RIF Name Services. RSK developed the RIF Name Service, which enables identification of blockchain addresses by human-readable names. Additionally, new gas service providers can register themselves remotely using the RIF Name Service. 

“The implementation of the blockchain solution built on top of RSK and RIF and developed by Grupo Sabra is a key milestone for our organization that will enable to streamline our processes, reduce costs, improve time to market and most importantly provide a much better user experience,” said Carlos Amín, CIO of Gasnor. 

IOV Labs was formerly RIF Labs and develops solutions based on RSK, a smart contract platform designed to work with Bitcoin, although the Gasnet solution is permissioned. RIFOS aims to add functionality such as storage, communication and gateways. 

There’s an associated RIF (RSK Infrastructure Framework) token, which currently has a market capitalization of $23 million, down by almost 60% in a month, most of it before the Corona Crash. 

Argentina has a thriving blockchain industry, and the government has set up the Blockchain Federal Argentina (BFA). A few weeks ago, the country suspended the company registration blockchain, citing the need for increased regulatory control. 

IOV Labs is also involved in digital identity for inclusion project started by NEC Argentina along with NGO Bitcoin Argentina and IDB Lab.
