Blockchain to be used on the battlefields by Darpa

darpa blockchain

The most popular research projects agency for defence, better known as Darpa, is studying a method to create a blockchain-based messaging platform to be used for battlefield objectives.

This DARPA’s project is still just an idea, but it comes out thanks to a website post on its official websites. 
DARPA became very popular thanks to its revolutionary ideas and its goal of promoting emerging technologies. 
In fact, back in the ’60s, DARPA created ARPANET, a primitive form of what today we call Internet. 

The press release

According to the official press release, DARPA aims at creating a”secure messaging system” using a “decentralized ledger” to allow encrypted secrets. 
The press release explains:
“There is a critical DoD need to develop a secure messaging and transaction platform accessible via web browser or standalone native application. The platform separates the message creation, from the transfer of the message within a secure courier to the reception and decryption of the message.”

The 3-steps model

DARPA believes it will need 3 stages to bring the project to reality.
  1. Development: “built on the framework of an existing blockchain framework”, using the blockchain as a model;
  2. Creation of prototypes and commercial-scale versions of the network;
  3. Deployment


According to DARPA, this system can be used within the DoD offices to interact in a secure way.
“By doing this, significant portions of the DoD back office infrastructure can be decentralized, smart documents and contracts can be instantly and securely sent and received thereby reducing exposure to hackers and reducing needless delays in DoD back office correspondence. As an example, Military Interdepartmental Purchase Requests (MIPR) could be implemented using the secure ledger.”
The system could be also used for battlefield applications.
“Troops on the ground in denied communications environments would have a way to securely communicate back to HQ, and DoD back office executives could rest assured that their logistics system is efficient, timely and safe from hackers”.

BNP Paribas to develop a blockchain project

Today BNP Paribas Group has announced a new partnership that aims at allowing private companies to issue securities through the blockchain ledger.

The partnership is between BNP Paribas Securities Services and SmartAngels, a crowdfunding platform that will help BNP Paribas in a pilot project to be launched within the end of 2016.
According to a press release, BNP Paribas will develope and manage a ledger for shares in companies through the blockchain.
The main goal is to allow non-listed companies crowdfunded on SmartAngels to issue their shares on the primary market, and allow investors an access to the secondary market based on blockchain technology.
The BNP press release explained:
“Investor payments will be processed immediately and e-certificates will be issued to them straight away. Financial transactions made via the platform will therefore be performed simply, quickly, securely and for a lower cost.”

BNP Paribas believes in the Blockchain

BNP Paribas is not new in the blockchain sector.
A few months ago, in fact, BNP confirmed its belief in distributed ledger technology for financial purposes and announced that they were working on blockchain technology.
Also, BNP Paribas previously created their blockchain Bizhackathon, with the objectives of finding use cases for distributed ledger technology in the banking system.
