Blockchain-based service that secures and stores an online distributed proof-of-existence for any document. It creates a 'digital fingerprint' that is easily traceable while also adding a security layer proving data ownership without revealing the actual data.

A blockchain-based service that secures and stores an online distributed proof-of-existence for any document, as well as proof-of-ownership and document ownership transfer. This protocol is used to issue birth and marriage certificates, proof-of-identity, working licenses, healthcare access, and even property sale records, remotely or in-loco.

While not serving as document storage, documents and files are instead time-stamped and assigned a digital fingerprint within the blockchain to prevent unauthorized tampering and modification. It allows a public verification of the document’s date, authenticity, origin, integrity, and content without publicly disclosing the content itself. Biometric identification such as fingerprints could be used as a digital signature (or private key in cryptography terms) to prove that an individual is the owner of a particular document.

Gender Equality

Challenges

  • Without a customary gendered framework, it may be hard to understand any gender gaps in usage.

  • It may be hard to automate the compliance of information stored within the blockchain.

Opportunities

  • Help with immigration, specifically for refugees that often lack any meaningful form of identification.

  • Can target donor resources straight to women, through their own private key to access the funds received.
