Blockchain technology
CTP's recent partnerships serve as foundation for the wide-scale adoption of Blockchain technology.

Blockchain technology is the backbone of a new type of Internet. It allows digital information to be distributed but not copied. Originally designed for the digital currency Bitcoin, the technology is now finding other potential uses.

Information held on a Blockchain exists as a shared — and continually reconciled — database. Using the network this way has obvious benefits. The Blockchain database isn’t stored in any single location, such that the records it keeps are actually public and easily verifiable. There is no centralized version of the information, which a hacker may corrupt. Its data hosted by millions of computers simultaneously, and is accessible to anyone on the Internet.

CTP foresees the application of its expertise in data infrastructure, big data analytics, and data security to play a significant role in the rollout of Blockchain technology in the Philippines.

“Blockchain technology is the wave of the future. For Computrade, it represents what is likely to be the next stage of digital transformation. We are preparing ourselves to provide the solutions that will ease its acceptance in the country and to fully secure the transactions facilitated by this innovative technology. We are excited at the possibility that we will be able to contribute our share in enabling Filipino enterprises and individuals as well to take full advantage of an emerging technology," Sumulong said.
