Paul Mampilly: Blockchain can be used to End Identity Theft

Paul Mampilly is one of the great editors of the Banyan Hill Publishing. In one of his articles, he shared about why he is set to abandon identity theft protection for blockchain security. He first gave a story on the queuing process of the Motors Vehicle Department. In this part, he said that he was renewing his driver’s license and ended up spending almost the entire day waiting at a field office. He affirmed that many people usually have to queue for a long time even if they showed up early in the morning. Paul Mampilly proceeded and informed his readers about the necessary documents at the DMV to strengthen his argument on the significance of blockchain security. He noted that people are required to show their passport, Social Security card, birth certificate or any other forms of identification.

Currently, people are expected to show three certified forms of identification on top of mailing address prove. It becomes sophisticated and time consuming for the individuals who have misplaced their critical identification documents to get replacements. It is also an expensive process since there are set replacement charges. Paul Mampilly suggested on the possibilities of saving time by devising a different way of individual identification. He indicated about blockchain security. In the recent past, Paul Mampilly noted that he wouldn’t mind having a microchip if at all it made his life more comfortable. He also declared that he was even ready to do away with his wallet, and other sensitive documents if he could get a suitable alternative.

He stated that blockchain was the only best way that could be used to eliminate the documentation processes. He went ahead and gave a brief description of how blockchain technology works. Many people usually have a notion that blockchain is only related to the cryptocurrency. This is not the case since blockchain is a method of a secure digital ledger that backs cryptocurrency. The blockchain is currently used to provide security on various bits of sensitive online information. Precisely, blockchain can be defined as an alterable electronic type of data. In blockchain, every critical data collection is put in a block whereby multiple blocks makes a chain.

Boraie Development Believes in a Bright New Jersey Future

The Aspire, a 238-unit luxury apartment development in New Brunswick, NJ, is located right next door to the New Brunswick train station[1]. Neighborhood shopping, dining, and nightlife abound. The luxury complex, built by Boraie Development, LLC, includes 10,000-square feet of retail space. The 17-story complex is located adjacent to the Robert Wood Johnson Hospital and the Children’s Cancer Center. Amenities include an attached parking garage with direct elevator access to the lobby; a 24/7 doorman, a fitness center and dedicated Yoga area; a resident’s club with indoor and outdoor spaces for play, work, or rest; and private storage including indoor bike storage.

 

An article on statetheatrenj.org headlined, “Star Comes Home to Build in Newark,” in the WSJ[2], discusses how Shaquille O’Neal has partnered with Boraie Development in New Jersey. O’Neal, the most physically dominant player ever to compete in the NBA, grew up in New Brunswick, NJ. One of his childhood haunts, an old theater in New Brunswick, is now the CityPlex12, a project on which O’Neal partnered on the $7 million renovation with Boraie.

 

O’Neal brings money and name recognition to the partnership, while Boraie brings business and political connections and 30-years of real estate development experience to the table. Their partnership grows stronger every day. O’Neal said the organization focuses on bringing housing and commercial development to the state’s struggling urban downtowns. O’Neal on njbiz.com said he wants to maintain that focus to avoid spreading himself too thin. O’Neal said that his real goal is to bring beauty back to New Jersey’s struggling urban downtowns.

 

Boraie Development, LLC is based in New Brunswick, NJ. Omar Boraie, an Egyptian immigrant who came to the US to obtain a Ph.D. in chemistry, but got sidetracked by the potential in New Jersey real estate, founded the company about 30 years ago[3]. Boraie has three main groups — real estate development, property management, and sales and marketing.

 

Omar Boraie and his children are firm believers that philanthropy is a moral imperative. Boraie’s son, Sam, serves as a director at Elijah’s Promise[5], which strengthens the community of New Brunswick by providing more than 100,000 meals a year to homeless families in the city.[4]
