San Marino approves VeChain eNFT vaccination certificate that's verifiable worldwide

The Republic of San Marino has approved VeChain’s NFT-based vaccination passport, which is reportedly verifiable worldwide.

The small European nation with a population of just over 33,000 announced the approval of the 'Decree-Law No. 109 of 16 June' earlier today, which enables the rollout of a vaccination passport dubbed the “San Marino Digital Covid Certificate.”

The partnership includes collaboration with DNV — which will provide digital assurance over the project.

The vaccination passport contains a record of past infections, negative test results, and also provides a digital vaccination certificate.

The digital vaccination certificate is issued upon request from approved facilities by San Marino health authorities. It is recorded on the VeChainThor public blockchain, by linking an enterprise nonfungible token (eNFT) to an individual’s Covid-related medical history.

The certificate contains two QR codes that can be scanned to access a person’s Covid-related medical history.

The first code is in compliance with European Union requirements and standards and can be verified by approved member states and entities.

The second QR can be scanned by “anyone anywhere” outside of the European Union and directs users to a web-based app where the blockchain based eNFT certificates  can be verified.

VeChain, claimed on Twitter that this marked the “first national-level eNFt adoption.”

“The use of VeChain’s blockchain technology and, in particular NFTs, makes it possible to increase confidence in the authenticity of the information, reducing the risk of counterfeiting,” said Renato Grottola, Global Director Growth, and Innovation at DNV.

This isn’t the first time VeChain has provided blockchain-based solutions in response to the global pandemic. Cointelegraph reported on Jan. 6 that Vechain partnered with the Mediterranean Hospital of Cyprus to store vaccination records on its blockchain.
