Colendi Weekly Update | 6–12 August

After a long and a busy week, we are proudly presenting you the latest developments about Colendi. This week’s update consists of developments both from the marketing and Colendi product side. Now it’s time to catch up with the Colendi team!

Product development

Colendi released the alpha product to the volunteering members of its community. We had already announced how you can get early access and what features it will include. On Friday, we have made the announcementthat we selected 2000 volunteers among our community who have shown their interest to try the alpha product. Those people already received their mails to access the Colendi Alpha Product and share their opinions with us.

We are still gathering new volunteers to try out the Colendi Alpha Product. If you are interested you may still click the link below to register.

GET YOUR EARLY ACCESS

Three integral elements of Colendi Product — Colendi ID, Colendi Score and Colendi Wallet — are introduced in the alpha product.

Colendi ID: Colendi ID is the self-sovereign digital identity that Colendi provides its users in order to include their relevant information in a private and protected model.

Colendi Score: Colendi Score is a digital score that is uniquely calculated by our protocol for each user. The protocol is trained to calculate a Colendi Score with social media data, smartphone data, transactional data, phone data and over 1,000 pieces of personal information. The algorithm then stores this score on the smart contracts of the Ethereum blockchain, meaning it becomes a decentralized Colendi Score.

Colendi Wallet: This is where users can manage their Colendi Tokens (CODs). With a Colendi Wallet, users can send and receive COD as well as oversee their transactions. On top of the existing features, users will soon be able to list the integrated merchants within the Colendi network and apply for microcredits.
