The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed the need for blockchain technology that can be used in connecting users on a digital platform. Its critical use in ensuring safe transactions digitally is seen as a positive indicator of the technology. Features of immutability, decentralization, and transparency can drive its integration into government systems for containing the spread of the virus and reopening its borders. For instance, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection can use blockchain for protecting intellectual property rights of American importers from data theft. On the other hand, the high influx of mail-in voting during the U.S. elections has also induced the need for a blockchain supported platform. The patent filed by the USPS has developed a case use for fraud-proof conduction of elections.
