Can Secure QR hold up to Blockchain?

The faster time to market, scalability, proven technology, efficiency, and effectiveness would make Secure QR code technology far more attractive for banks, financial institutions, the healthcare industry, and even the retail sector in developing countries compared to Blockchain.

In China and recently in India, the modest and unassuming QR code has helped the governments, large enterprises, millions of small businesses, and billions of users achieve a lot more at a fraction of the cost in two of their most significant initiatives in recent past – vaccinations as well as payments.

With the ability to democratize access, efficiency, wide acceptance, and effectiveness – it would be naïve for large governments and businesses to jump onto Blockchain at the expense of Secure QR codes without due diligence. Especially on the parameters of sustainability. Secure QR codes as technology can transform physical-digital transactions at a fraction of the cost of Blockchain systems, delivering speed and efficiency both in implementation and integration. With the power of mobile phones in the hands of consumers and the need for secure technologies, the world is at a cusp of transformation, and a Secure QR code holds the key to large-scale adoption.
