Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies and Telecommuting: Outlook for 2020

East year 2020 , the effect produced by the COVID-19 pandemic (Coronavirus 19). And because of that, the current and near scenario, especially in technology, labor and finance, must be overcome with great creativity and speed.

And for this, technologies associated with the world of Free Software and Open Source, such as, Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies and TelecommutingThey will be essential for success in overcoming the consequences of this new disease.

Free Software and Public Policies: Benefits

Let us bear in mind that at present the Software, Is the fundamental tool of the operation of our society. Almost everything is handled through Software, and the few things, which are physical or manual, are progressively being digitized, such as coins and forms and types of work.

And some of the elements, which makes the Software be more successful and rapidly implemented and widespread, in people's daily lives, are the transparency, trust and security that transmits when used. Elements that by the way are a fundamental part of the Free Software and Open Source, and any technology, mechanism or methodology associated with these.


Free Software and Public Policies: Conclusion

Free Software and Open Source throughout

Which is why, it is no coincidence that success achieved in this last decade, by the Free Software and Open Source, and associated technologies such as Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies, or other related. A fact that we have recorded in other previous publications, such as:

In addition, and focusing on health matter, due to the current situation, the Free Software and Open Source, It is also very useful and important in this area, as we expressed in the last article, called: Coronavirus: How does Free and Open Software contribute to the fight?.

Technological landscape for the year 2020

As we expressed before, Governments of many countries they are taking many measures to cope with the negative, and often deadly consequences of COVID-19 pandemic (Coronavirus 19), so it is good to highlight, some related to the Free Software and Open Source that will stand out for being used, in the actions to be taken by them:


The use of technology Blockchain it will surely expand, both in large and small organizations, both public and private, to achieve improvements in the efficiency of operating models and business or social processes, current. Since, in the processes or activities where information is exchanged or digitally controllable information is managed, the use of Block Chains, will have a positive impact in areas such as, for example, supply chains and traceability mechanisms for products, goods and services.

Which, consequently, could lead to aspects, such as, minimize the use of "face-to-face jobs" and the use of "intermediary companies", thus saving costs, and reducing risks of fraudulent behavior and human errors.

Also, now that the "data" of an organization or individual are considered a very valuable resource and / or asset, the use of technology Blockchain guarantees an effective and safe way to store, protect and use them, since it offers a decentralized and encrypted system, which is ideal for it.

And finally, since the technology Blockchain enables reliable interactions between 2 or more unknown participants, along with elements of user authentication, transaction validation and immutable registration of information in a digital ledger, it can be used perfectly to connect without major problems companies, suppliers, people, and link their activities, communications and decisions.

Which can lead to the possibility of a digitalization total of any business model and way of working, for example, Smart Contracts, and greater own control of the data by each involved.


As for the Cryptocurrencies, which are supported in turn, by technology Blockchain, you are offering an ideal opportunity to minimize the use of physical money, a measure recommended by both the World Health Organization (WHO), as for many Government, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

In addition, these allow or facilitate the payment of contracted or "freelance" staff, in remote locations or countries, where the payment infrastructure is limited, economy and / or currencies are volatile, or is it from Hard access by themes of sanctions and blocks, of some countries against others.


As to Telecommuting, either using technology Blockchain or just some other free and open technology preferably, to facilitate and guarantee higher levels of transparency, trust and security in operations, such as VPN networks and / or GNU / Linux Operating Systems, in order to mitigate physical contact and the unnecessary transfer of people, it would be complying with the also recommended measure of many organizations, institutions and governments, to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.

In short, he still has a lot to contribute, the Free Software and Open Source, especially in the immediate, for the benefit, stability and the success of Humanity, in the midst of this crisis arising from the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
