UTU and Numio Partner to Increase Trust Verification

We will work together to list UTU Coin on the Numio app and integrate UTU’s trust infrastructure with Numio Identity.

Hello UTU Trust Guardians,

We are pleased to announce a partnership with Numio to list UTU Coin on their wallet and explore integration of the UTU Trust API with Numio Identity to increase the level of trust in apps where our products are deployed.

What is Numio?

Numio is a mobile application built on Ethereum, and was the first product supporting zkRollups (an Ethereum scaling solution) on Google Play. Numio gives people the power to have more control over their money and digital identity.

How will UTU and Numio work together?

First, UTU Coin will be listed on the Numio mobile app, on both the Layer 1 and Layer 2 wallets. The Layer 2 UTU listing offers significant savings on fees, in comparison to traditional mobile Ethereum wallets.

Like UTU, Numio is conscious of user privacy, and that is why personal data is accessed and shared, only if consent is given. If you grant consent, you can build a personal network and see if your friends and family recommend a particular service. If you don’t want to give consent, then you will make and see anonymised recommendations.

That’s where the second part of the partnership comes in, with UTU and Numio investigating how Numio Identity and UTU’s trust infrastructure can be integrated to increase the level of trust in apps where these products are deployed.

We will explore the integration of UTU’s AI-powered Trust API into Numio Identity, to develop and display trust signals for Numio Identity users. When Numio Identity users perform trustworthy actions, such as logging into apps, making payments and transfers, or other verified tasks, the Trust API will analyze these interactions, and user-permissioned data, to generate trust signals for each user. This will enable other users to make better decisions on whether to verify and engage with them.

In addition, Numio Identity can be integrated into UTU’s trust infrastructure and protocol to ensure, in a pseudonymous manner, that entities who leave a rating and review are legitimate people, and not bots.

Our team at Numio has been impressed with what UTU is looking to accomplish around trustlessness with actions, and data stored online with their APIs and how you can earn money by doing similar actions you already do on a daily basis. We look forward to working together, and I am excited to see what we are able to accomplish!

- Mark Anstead, Co-Founder and Director of Business Development of Numio

Numio is simplifying blockchain with user-friendly products, and we are excited to get UTU Coin listed on their mobile app to take advantage of zkRollups for instant and low fee transfers on Ethereum. We can’t wait to launch the UTU Trust API on Numio to help users trade in a more trustworthy environment. Happy to support the mission to give people the power to have more control over their money and digital identity.”

- Jason Eisen, Co-Founder and CEO of UTU
