AUNA uses the technological base designed and constituted by the Santiago Stock Exchange, which has been working since 2018 and which is used by the securities lending application based on the Blockchain Hyperledger Fabric of the Linux Foundation. In turn, during 2020, and in the context of the COVID pandemic, the remote voting platform was launched, and which was also based on this technology, Click & Vote.
After its launch, companies or potential members interested in the initiative will be able to access demos or manage the subsequent enabling of a test environment by previously requesting to be an ecosystem partner. After this period, which will last until February 2021, a production phase will begin, where development companies and end customers can meet and officially begin the commercialization of the applications.
