Hilo.io Partners with Civic Technologies, Leading Blockchain Identity Technology Provider, for User Authentication

Social Network Uses Civic’s Technology to Verify User Identities

San Francisco, California, June 25, 2018 — Cryptocurrency based social platform Hilo.io today announced a strategic partnership with Civic Technologies Inc., the company revolutionizing digital identity with its Blockchain-based technology. The partnership brings trusted, secure identity services to Hilo.io and enables Hilo.io to securely verify the user identities, while combating fake accounts.

“As we release Hilo to a global audience, we want to have systems in place to verify the real identities of our users. We’re excited to announce our partnership with Civic. Civic provides a way to authenticate all our community members with ease,” said Hilo CEO Monica Puchner.

“We are pleased to welcome Hilo.io to Civic’s Partner Network. This collaboration marks another milestone for Civic’s ecosystem and for on-demand, secure, and low-cost access to identity verification services,” said Civic CEO, Vinny Lingham.

Civic will help enable secure sign-On and Reusable Know Your Customer (KYC) across the Hilo.io’s platform dedicated to social discussion around cryptocurrencies. This will help Hilo.io authenticate and verify real users, preventing bad actors for creating fake accounts. Fake accounts are often used to spread spam and disinformation on conventional social platforms. This partnership will enable more trust and transparency within the Hilo community and around cryptocurrency discussions. Civic’s decentralized identity solutions will help to verify the real identities of Hilo.io users and ensure that Hilo’s crowdsourced sentiment data is coming from authentic users.
