What started as a spontaneous, friendly contact between Fantom’s Michael Chen and V-ID’s Marnix van den Berg around June 2019, has now taken the shape of a mutually benificial business endeavor.

From the start, both companies have been interested in each others’ technology and strategic choices. Both teams agreed though, that a partnership should only be formed around an oportunity to solve a practical, real-world problem.

Fast forward a couple of months, and multiple large scale governments projects came along, which were a perfect fit to jumpstart the first joint efforts.

- V-ID will certify and verify the documents/data in the Fantom Chain, to push network engagement forward.

- The governments involved will commit to using V-ID’s application to authenticate documents/data.

- Both organizations will help one another expand their networks where possible.

- V-ID’s token (VIDT) will be added as one of the collaterals for CSDT to be introduced through onchain governance proposals on Xar Network.

Starting early 2020, more details will follow in the coming weeks

V-ID and Fantom will utilise their technology for several use cases that both organisations have already successfully tackled. The scale, however, is significantly larger, which brings a wider adoption of both Fantom’s and V-ID’s services, but also contributes to a more mainstream acceptance of blockchain technology as a useful solution.
