BUCS System Security

BUCS protects crypto holder's privacy

Card is protected by several layers of security:

  • 6 digit PIN (banks use 4 digits)
  • Biometric token – fingerprint built into every card
  • Personal data stored in the card with Military/banking grade encryption
  • Dedicated server. Information transmitted and stored are encrypted. It is up to the buyer whether to personalize the card or not. Only a PIN is mandatory, other fields of data are optional. Remember, nobody can see content of the card unless rightful owner unlocks it using PIN or fingerprint.

    If BUCS buyer decides to hold completely anonymous account card is perfect for that. PIN and fingerprint promote security and safe operations. Personalized card with name, address, fingerprint, and other details is also very secure to use. Privacy is completely protected



Blockchain vs. Crypto Block

Everybody in the world heard about amazing invention – blockchain. While there is a rush of the blockchain implementation into everything. We actually don’t think that blockchain is that great for preserving personal data and transactions. Main shortcomings of blockchain is that it is big in size and becomes slow and cumbersome to handle. Also it represents really unwanted transparency. We are talking about financial types of transactions which should by default be a private and secret.
For that reason our programmers created improved version of the blockchain called crypto blocks. For a good measure they added control mechanism called crypto ledger to oversee crypto blocks. All that is packed neatly into the micro-processor smart card.  Our crypto blocks are much smaller than blockchain. They fit the smart card limited size.  Crypto blocks are protected, encrypted and anything but open to the outside world.
That miniature environment acts as an cold / hot storage inside the member's wallet.    

BUCS - Crypto Blocks with Fingerprint ?

It is important to point out that file stored in the chip card is NOT a picture of your fingerprint, it can NOT be extracted back from the card and can NOT be reverse engineered to create a fingerprint image. It is actually a special mathematical algorithm produced by fingerprint image and software in the fingerprint reader. During process of validation that algorithm is compared with actual finger presented on the reader and it takes all but under one second to prove a positive or negative match.

This biometric feature is used for many years all over the world, it is not intrusive and is widely accepted concept that every person has different fingerprint. It can't be copied or faked unlike PIN or similar type of validation.
