The Solution utilizes blockchain and big data technologies and is exclusively developed by THEKEY. The proprietary IDV Engine developed by THEKEY is embedded and authorized to connect with multi-dimensional Personal Identity Information (PII) of the local Social Insurance System, Basic Medical Insurance System, Bureau of Civil Affairs, Public Security Bureau, Disease Control and Prevention Center, telecommunication companies, banks, transportation systems and customs. By cross-checking a large amount of PII from various data sources through the IDV Engine, survival status of the pensioner can be accurately verified and a scoring system is adopted to determine the pension disbursement. Blockchain technology is applied to record and trace the overall authentication process, and guarantee data security by its “undeniable” and “unalterable” features.

The Solution began to be deployed for Guizhou Pension Program, serving 35.8 million people as a national pilot on October, 2018, as indicated in THEKEY MVP/Mainnet Progress Report. The Solution facilitates the Pension Program by releasing pension accurately and efficiently, therefore fundamentally reduces fraud, waste and abuse in the system, and meanwhile greatly improves user experience. The national award signifies the approval of THEKEY’s BDMI technology and achievement of Guizhou Pilot from the central and local government, which is one month ahead of schedule according to the roadmap.

The Solution will be gradually deployed nationwide in the near future, and will be extended to more fields, including employment, poverty alleviation, and population census, enhancing people’s livelihood, quality of life and national economy.
