Major Telcos Join the RAG Wangiri Blockchain

RAG, in partnership with Orillion, is giving free access to a global distributed ledger of numbers used in wangiri attacks to any business willing to freely share their intelligence. Over 60 telcos have connected to the blockchain including Vodafone Group, iBasis and Reliance Jio, with the result that more than one billion phone users are now served by telcos that use the wangiri blockchain to protect customers.


Blockchain technology makes the ledger uniquely quick and easy to access, and there is no need to implement new software or hardware to access the ledger. See the portal and request to join the consortium here.
