What’s IAMX and why have you ever chosen the Cardano blockchain to your challenge?
IAMX is a token-based decentralised Identification and authentication protocol that empowers people with the means to personal their id. Adhering to the strictest of regulatory requirements for id safety, we offer a sturdy and safe system the place people are capable of take management and handle their id.
Customers of IAMX will realise important time and value financial savings via novel approaches to id administration and ecommerce transactions, like 1-click fulfilment, that are legally binding and preserve native regulatory compliance. With customers in command of their id knowledge, time-consuming processes like Type-Filling, Know Your Buyer (KYC) or Know Your Enterprise (KYB) grow to be close to on the spot, extremely safe transactions.
IAMX”s mission is to empower customers with regards to their id
We construct upon the foundations of Self-Sovereign Identification (SSI), blockchain, and DIDs, enabling people, organisations, or any entity to show their id unbiased of exterior events or centralised authorities. This manner, the authenticity of something tied to an IAMX DID may be independently confirmed by the entity holding the DID. Our DID-method did:iamx was authorised by the W3C in March 2022 and is totally GDPR and privateness compliant.
On prime of all of the time-saving and privateness advantages, the customers of IAMX might be incentivized to make use of their id benefitting from upgrades, reductions or cashbacks each time they use their IAMX Identification in a web-based transaction. The companies utilizing IAMX may also have important upsides when it comes to the whole lot from important value financial savings in contrast with at present’s options to a rise in conversion charges because of IAMX simplifying buyer onboarding. Different enterprise companions, corresponding to Telecommunication firms or different organisations which are required to hold out buyer KYCs, might be performing as verifiers of knowledge and as such will have the ability to profit from life-time-revenues as they are going to be awarded a part of the internet affiliate marketing charges generated within the IAMX Market.
We determined to launch on Cardano as a result of we had a pure affinity to this blockchain as our staff architect Tim Brueckmann was already operating a stake pool. The extra sustainable proof-of-stake that Cardano provides in addition to the superb Cardano Neighborhood have been additionally deciding elements. Nonetheless, IAMX’s resolution is chain agnostic and we are able to already resolve on 50 ledgers and register on 8.
Inform us about your NFT Identification Verification resolution and the way that works? How does KYC match into this?
So with regards to NFTs, platforms like marketplaces manually assess NFT initiatives on a case-by-case foundation for verification, which isn’t solely time-consuming but in addition not scalable, as cross-platform verification has not been possible for a lot of as a result of it calls for an excessive amount of work. This requires NFT challenge creators to undergo comparable rounds on totally different platforms, usually leaving them annoyed. That is the place DIDs are available. With a DID, challenge creators can show their id in a decentralized method, while not having to fill out private data each time after which anticipate handbook verification.
So the best way it really works is that once you need to confirm your id and tie it to your NFT challenge(s) you create a DID by efficiently logging in to numerous social media corresponding to Twitter, Discord, GitHub, Fb, Apple, Google and so forth. Have a look right here for extra data.
This DID is then added to your NFT-collection and future patrons can see that the NFT they’re shopping for is verified. They’ll go right here and discover all the required data within the DID. So for instance if the NFT creator is Snoop Dogg and the DID proves that the mentioned NFT Creator has efficiently logged into Snoop Dogg’s Twitter account this permits for an especially excessive likelihood of the NFT being genuine.
IAMX’s imaginative and prescient is said to the human proper to have an id
In terms of the KYC facet this has but to be applied into the vNFT however it’s coming. The KYC knowledge might be saved within the Identification Pockets of the NFT Creator and the DID will present that the NFT Creator has carried out a KYC, however the precise KYC knowledge is not going to be saved within the NFT. The purpose of getting the KYC being a part of it’s so that once more it provides the additional reassurance that the NFT Creator is who they are saying they’re and helps avoiding scams.
What does the longer term maintain? The place do you see IAMX in 1, 5 and 10 years respectively?
We see ourselves on the forefront of the Web3 revolution, bringing the world’s most safe, decentralized, and user-friendly Self-Sovereign Identification (SSI) resolution to the Web.
Throughout the subsequent 12 months the IAMX Identification Pockets might be launched and so will our iOS & Android Market app. We may have already partnered with greater than 50.000 firms.
Inside 5 years IAMX would be the world main supplier of Identification options for Web3, connecting your IAMX Identification pockets might be as pure to the method of getting into the web as opening a URL is at present. We might in impact have added the layer of id and authentication to the Web, with IAMX in 5 years it is possible for you to to deal with the Web like you’re all the time logged in.
Pursuant to our mission and imaginative and prescient, IAMX is working to resolve the issue of offering an id to the billions of people that don’t at present have a state-recognised, authorized id. In 10 years we envision having made important inroads when it comes to creating identities for the greater than 1 Billion individuals on this planet that at present reside with out having an id. Our dream can be to have decreased this quantity by greater than 80% within the subsequent 10 years. We expect we are able to make it occur!
