And wow! We are impressed
The hottest trend in the tech world is OpenAI and ChatGPT, and we at Qryptal wanted to take it for a spin. So we asked some specific questions about #SecureQRCode and Blockchain.
Initially, we tried OpenAI’s Q&A and then had ChatGPT share the differences in tabular format. This is what we saw.
Q&A on Open AI, Playground
Q: What is a secure QR Code? How is it different from a standard QR Code?
A: A secure QR Code is a type of QR Code designed to add a layer of security to standard QR Code. It typically includes additional security measures such as encryption, digital signatures, and authentication.
Q: What makes Secure QR code more secure?
A: Secure QR codes are more secure than standard QR codes because they include additional security measures such as encryption, digital signatures, and authentication. This makes it more difficult for malicious actors to generate these codes with malicious or forged data contained within the QR Code. Additionally, secure QR Codes can be used to verify the authenticity of the data contained within them, making them more reliable than typical QR Codes.
Q: How is a secure QR code different from Blockchain for document security?
A: Secure QR codes differ from the Blockchain for document security because they are designed for a single transaction or document. In contrast, Blockchain is designed for multiple transactions and documents. Additionally, secure QR codes typically store and transmit data, while blockchain stores and verifies data.
Q: How would you compare the implementation complexity and economics of secure QR code vs Blockchain for document security?
A: The implementation complexity and economics of secure QR codes and Blockchain for document security vary depending on the use case. Generally, secure QR codes are more straightforward and cost-effective than Blockchain for document security. This is because secure Secure QR codes require less computing power and are easier to set up than Blockchain. Additionally Qryptal’s Secure Code provides the ability to have these work offline unlike Blockchain which requires internet access for verification. Additionally, secure QR codes are typically used for a single transaction or document. With Qryptal’s solution, we give customers the ability to update the QR data securely for verification. The new data is cryptographically chained to the previous data. You get the advantages of blockchain without the added cost and computing power. [Qryptal’s take - this refers to individual secure QR codes and not to the secure QR code system which can be used for multiple transactions and documents]. At the same time, Blockchain is designed for multiple transactions and documents.

We pushed the subsystem a little further and asked ChatGPT
Q: Can you highlight the difference between a Secure QR code and Blockchain for implementing document security solutions in an Enterprise in tabular form?
A: Sure, here is a comparison of secure QR codes and Blockchain for implementing document security solutions in an enterprise:
|Feature||Secure QR Code||Blockchain|
|Speed of Access||Fast||Moderate|
|Ease of implementation||Easy||Moderate|
|Suitability for tracking changes||Limited||Excellent|
|Suitability for storing large amounts of data||Limited||Excellent|
Secure QR Code:
A secure QR code is a type of QR code that includes additional security measures to prevent tampering or counterfeiting. These measures may include encryption, digital signatures, or other techniques.
Secure QR codes are relatively easy to implement and do not require any specialized infrastructure or expertise. They can be easily scanned using a smartphone or other device with a QR code reader.
Secure QR Codes solution has certainty in terms of cost as it does not depend on the volatility of crypto which is an expense for blockchain solutions
However, typically secure QR codes do not offer the same level of security as Blockchain. They are not suitable for tracking changes or storing large amounts of data.

With Qryptal’s solution we have the security of blockchain without the added computing power and expense of blockchain. You get the best of both worlds with Qryptal’s Secure Code solution. And it can work offline.
A blockchain is a distributed ledger technology that allows multiple parties to securely record and verify transactions without a central authority.
Blockchain is highly secure and resistant to tampering or counterfeiting, making it well-suited for implementing document security solutions in an enterprise.
Using a public blockchain introduces a long term dependency. The risk is if the blockchain stops being maintained or becomes unavailable for any reason - your already issued documents will become unverifiable or unavailable depending upon your implementation.
However, implementing a blockchain solution requires specialized infrastructure and expertise. It is more costly and time-consuming than using secure QR codes. There is also the added volatility of the cost of crypto which makes it hard for Enterprises to plan such costs and deployments. Additionally, accessing data stored on a blockchain can be slower than accessing data from other sources.
Q: In the context of the above, what are scenarios one should choose a Secure QR code over Blockchain? Please give it as a checklist.
In the context of the above, here are some scenarios where it may be more appropriate to use secure QR codes over blockchain for implementing document security solutions in an enterprise:
1. When the primary focus is on quickly and easily verifying the authenticity of a document, and there is no need to track changes or store large amounts of data.
2. When the document in question is not sensitive or confidential, and the risks of tampering or counterfeiting are low.
3. When the cost and complexity of implementing a blockchain solution is not justified.
4. When the document needs to be easily accessible and readable by a wide range of devices, including smartphones and tablets.
5. When the document needs to be easily shared and distributed, either in physical or digital form.
6. When there is a need for a simple and user-friendly solution that does not require any specialized infrastructure or expertise.
Overall, it’s important to carefully consider the specific requirements and constraints of your document security needs before deciding whether to use secure QR codes or blockchain. Factors such as the level of security needed, the cost and complexity of implementation, and the intended use and accessibility of the document should all be taken into account.
