On July 1, Keychain, a limited liability company which develops and provides Keychain Data Provenance Infrastructure (DPI) blockchain-based data security technology, announced that it had conducted verification testing on personal authentication that uses blockchain technology, issuance of digital assets, and peer-to-peer trading using distributed ledger technology at the Technical Development Department (Midori-ku, Nagoya City) of Chubu Electric Power < securities code: 9502>.


The verification testing was designed for three-way trading among a digital asset issuer, users (about 30 users this time), and merchants. According to the announcement, Keychain performed the implementation process between late November 2018 and mid-April 2019, while about 30 employees of the Technical Development Department, Chubu Electric Power carried out verification testing between late April and early May 2019.
