ID PASS wins the EOS Global Blockchain Hackathon in Hong Kong
ID PASS aims to offer Self-Sovereign identity to over one billion people in the world who live with no officially recognized proof of identity. Without identification, these people have no access to Education, Justice, Healthcare, Banking, Insurance, voting, and other services and benefits.
The ID PASS team demoed its solution that leverages the power of the EOS blockchain and biometrics to deliver Self-Sovereign Identity to the most vulnerable populations in a secure and privacy-respecting manner that can be used by any organization to deliver identification documents.
The jury that awarded ID PASS the Grand Prize included high profile technology and blockchain personalities such as Dr Jane Thomason, recipient of the Quantum Impact Award at United Nation’s Decade of Women, and Larry Sanger, Wikipedia co-founder.
The ID PASS project was born within Newlogic, a software company based in Singapore, which was represented at the Hackathon by co-founders Loïc Bistuer, Jeremi Joslin and Greg Martel. They joined forces at the event with Paul Wehner, SOV co-founder, and Raman Shalupau, founder at Crypto Jobs List.
