Indicio launches blockchain-enabled network for identity

Technology provider Indicio.tech, a public benefit corporation advancing decentralized identity software and solutions, today announced the public availability of the Indicio MainNet, a professionally-staffed decentralized identity network designed for global enterprises that need a reliable platform to develop and scale identity services and products.

The development of the Hyperledger Indy-based network follows on the successful deployment of the Indicio TestNet, a market leader in decentralized identity networks.

The Indicio MainNet uses distributed ledger technology—multiple identical databases spread across different nodes—to enable the use of privacy-preserving verifiable digital credentials. This provides the foundation for flexible, portable, and permanent digital identities that are always under the control of the identity holder—the individual—and which provide an evolutionary leap forward in security.

“Our clients asked for a stable, fully-staffed network based on Hyperledger Indy— one that could provide the Service Level Agreements their customers need for mission-critical workloads,” said Heather Dahl, CEO of Indicio. “Today, we are excited to announce that this MainNet is open for business.”

“This is the network we need to accelerate adoption of passwordless zero trust ecosystems for enterprise customers” said Mike Vesey, President of IdRamp, a leader in decentralized identity and a Genesis Node Operator on the Network. “Our customers are developing service delivery ecosystems that require world class support, and leading edge features managed by a team with deep technical experience. The Indicio network provides exactly that.”

“The Indicio Network enables GlobaliD to deliver a digital identity platform that puts you in control of your identity and your data,” says Mitja Simcic, CTO of GlobaliD, one of the first companies to use Indicio’s MainNet. “Most digital identity platforms take ownership and control of your digital identity and your data for their own purposes. For instance, social media companies make money from selling your data to unauthorized third parties. Indicio is creating an ecosystem for providers that are working to make this practice obsolete. This network is bringing real change to real people, all over the world.”

The Value of Decentralized Identity

Decentralized identity allows individuals to control their own data and solves the privacy and security issues that undermine current models for handling identity online. This privacy-preserving model for identity, where everyone controls their own information, makes it easy for companies and organizations to comply with data privacy laws, makes business partner integrations more secure, and does away with the need for third-parties to manage and hold personally identifiable information (PII).

It is important to note that as part of Indicio’s governance, no personal data, such as names, addresses, or birth dates, are written to any of the Indicio Network ledgers. Instead, machine-readable cryptographic information identifies the issuer of the credential and the details that demonstrate the credential is authentic. With just a few writes to the Indicio MainNet, millions of credentials can be issued, all pointing to the same few ledger writes making the system easily scalable.

How to use the Indicio MainNet

Anyone using technology to verify a verifiable credential that is presented to them may access the Indicio MainNet for free. Several wallets currently in production now point to the Indicio Network, enabling credentials to be issued on, and read from, the Indicio Network.

Global innovators interested in becoming part of the Indicio Network are welcome to become an Indicio Node Operator. This diverse, supportive, and collaborative network of dynamic companies, work together to support a copy of the ledger while helping to advance decentralized identity.

Russia’s State Bank, Sberbank Launches Blockchain on Hyperledger

Russia’s biggest financial foundation Sberbank is pondering out alternatives to dispatch its own stablecoin, an advanced money sponsored by true resources. According to reports, the new steady coin will chip away at Sberbank’s own blockchain stage based on the Hyperledger Network. According to the bank agents, the Sberbank blockchain will encourage exchange money exchanges. Moreover, its significant spotlight will be on exchanges including the trading letters of credit.

Only possibly 14 days back, Russia revealed its advanced resources law named “On Digital Financial Assets” (DFA) which will come into power by January 2021. Henceforth, until further notice, Sberbank is simply working out choices with the stablecoin. Once the crypto law comes energetically, Sberbank will hold hands with its accomplices and continue ahead with the venture.

On July 31, Russian President Vladimir Putin himself marked on two DFA bills to bring them into law. Notwithstanding, this bill disallows Russians from leading exchanges in Bitcoin and other advanced monetary forms.

We probably may issue a stablecoin on the basis of the law that has been adopted recently. As we can peg this stablecoin to the ruble, this token could become a basis or an instrument for settlements involving other digital financial assets.”

Russia’s sberbank

Popov included that the stablecoin, which is at present getting looked, voluntarily encourage settlements including advanced and virtual money related resources.

Stablecoin from Sberbank Will Ensure Faster Payments and Settlements

Sberbank is hoping to dispatch its Hyperledger-based blockchain stage by Q3 2020. A stablecoin will be an intelligent segment of this blockchain stage encouraging quicker installments and settlements.

Despite the fact that the blockchain framework will utilize Hyperledger’s Fabric blockchain structure, the hub facilitating will occur in Sberbank’s own distributed computing administration SberCloud. Sberbank said that the framework will stay open for any organization to join and host a hub. Addressing CoinDesk, Sberbank’s representative seat Anatoly Popov stated:

Any company will be able to use smart contracts created by Sberbank right away or create their own. Payments via smart contracts go through automatically and the vendors receive funds in a matter of seconds.”

In addition, exchange money will be only one such potential use case for the stage. Sberbank likewise plans to include a portion of its current support of its blockchain arrange.

Public Mint goes live with the backing of more than 200 banks

Public Mint features tokenisation tools for fiat currencies and has big support from established companies

After two years of development, Public Mint has launched its “fiat-native” public commercial blockchain. It facilitates the tokenisation of fiat currencies, allowing almost anyone to create tokenized fiat assets.

The innovative new platform could propel the integration of blockchain technology with financial institutions. Instead of using a stablecoin, a bank can create its own tokenized assets and have a greater degree of confidence in their underlying value.

What is Public Mint?

Businesses that choose to use Public Mint have the flexibility to receive payment through various means, such as wire transfer, credit cards or auto clearing house payments (ACH). For now, the platform only supports US dollars and is working to open its platform to other currencies as well.

According to IBM Digital asst Labs Director, Nitin Gaur: “By employing blockchain technology as a foundation and applying the benefits of programmability, real-time settlement and finality to business processes worldwide.”

Backed by over 200 banks at launch

Public Mint told media that there are 200 banks supporting its platform earlier this week. The company didn’t disclose which companies are working with the project except for IBM Asset Labs and Hyperledger.

Halsey Minor, the co-founder of Public Mint, commented: “The genesis of Public Mint was to allow regulated banks to hold funds which could then be tokenized or “minted”, allowing for the creation of applications and business processes around money without actually moving money between banks.”

Minor was a co-founder of CNET, a successful digital media platform. He went on to create Videocoin, a decentralized video media network. Minor is now working with Public Mint.

Strong support from DLT leaders

Public Mint did not disclose its blockchain’s technical specifications, but we know that it is a version of Hyperledger Besu with a different set of consensus mechanisms and fiat integrated fees.

So far, the platform has been backed by prominent people in the distributed ledger technology (DLT) industry. Brian Behlendorf, the Executive Director of Hyperledger, is glad to see the platform come online.

Furthermore, Gaur stated that: “Public Mint is addressing that initial promise so that all enterprises, from traditional well-established companies to new and innovative DeFI startups can pave the way for the rise of digital assets.”

Public Mint is still in its early stages, but the successful launch of the platform demonstrates that it is commercially viable, at least from a technical perspective. Time will tell if industry decides to use it to any great degree.
