Blockchain was proposed to be used in the process of nuclear disarmament
States involved in the nuclear disarmament process should use blockchain to build trust among themselves and improve security. This opinion was expressed by researchers from King’s College London in a new report titled “Trust Machine: Blockchain in Nuclear Disarmament and Arms Control Compliance Verification.”.
According to the authors, the blockchain will help the parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons to make the process “safer, more secure and reliable.” This document is intended for legislators interested in a non-technical description of the capabilities of distributed ledger technology while meeting the requirements for decommissioning nuclear weapons..
As the advantages of blockchain, the authors point to the possibility of management in “an immutable encrypted data chain of objects related to the contract.” It is assumed that in this way the parties to the treaty will be able to verify its compliance without the need to access data directly..
In addition, the blockchain can act as a “cryptographic storage”, which will contain critical data for disclosure as needed. It can also be used to install environmental sensors and monitors to monitor remote locations in real time and automatically notify participants about potential violations of the contract..
The authors note that the authorities of different countries often show distrust of each other, which makes it difficult to comply with agreements in the field of nuclear disarmament.
