Privacy by Blockchain Design

"Our goal is not merely providing GDPR-compliance for Blockchain, but rather using Blockchain to raise data protection levels in the digital world to new dimensions"
Christian Wirth & Michael Kolain

We are developing high standards of privacy for and with blockchains.

Privacy for blockchains: We help the Blockchain industry take a leap forward and overcome any doubts regarding data privacy. The Journal of Banking and Financial Technology (Springer Verlag) writes about our latest Paper: "Chrisitan Wirth et al., also showed [66] how blockchain design can be compatible with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) act."

Privacy with blockchains: in our view, blockchains can not only be GDPR-compliant, they can also help raise data protection levels and truly give back data ownership to individuals. As such, we see the Blockchain as a great tool for privacy and want to encourage the industry to take the lead in this area.

Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs)

According to art. 35 GDPR, companies processing data in a way that "is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons" will have to carry out a DPIA, which should consist of:

  • a record of processing activities (art. 30 GDPR)
  • an overview of management processes for compliance
  • a final DPIA report (art. 35 GDPR)
Read our legal expert's new publication on DPIAs.
