Blockchain Holdings Ltd (CSE:BCX) announced Thursday that two more countries have begun advanced pilot programs for its TRACEsafe self-monitoring technology.
The British Virgin Islands-based company said that Kuwait will use TRACEsafe in its “DeliverSafe” program for safety and contact tracing across its food delivery workforce, and an additional Southeast Asian country, unnamed for confidentiality reasons, will use TRACEsafe’s hardware and software packages to manage self-quarantine.

TRACEsafe’s self-monitoring technology provides real-time location services for healthcare and pandemic outbreak control. The program is already deployed in Hong Kong to help the region manage its coronavirus (COVID-19) containment program.
"TRACEsafe is very excited to have its hardware deployed in these advanced pilot projects that show off some creative use cases around our technology,” TRACEsafe CEO Dennis Kwan said in a statement Thursday.
“We could not be prouder that TRACEsafe's technology is successfully helping governments and health agencies in the fight against COVID-19. TRACEsafe has been proven highly effective on the front lines in Hong Kong, and is now being adopted by additional countries to successfully help stem the spread of this virus.”
The agreements were signed through Blockchain Holdings’ subsidiary Tracesafe Technologies Inc.
“We continue to believe that TRACEsafe technology is a critical tool to help manage quarantine and forge a safer work environment through real-time contact tracing,” Kwan added.
“Step-by-step, TRACEsafe can help bring the world safely back to work.”
