A digital identity document, safely secured and stored in the blockchain. This protocol enables employers and businesses to directly deal with their employees, set up real-time payments, and improve access to other essential services.

A permanent and cross-border identity record, safely stored in the blockchain ledger, designed to grant work permits to individuals. In this system, the blockchain stores all possible identity documents, including photos, previous educational backgrounds, and skills. Such information is verified against other network nodes, and it is later time-stamped, ensuring that data cannot be forged, duplicated, or stolen. Due to blockchain's enhanced transparency, the collaboration between governments, institutions, businesses, and citizens can be held accountable. The transactions occurring in the ledger are verified nearly in real-time and are safely recorded, enabling users to share data only with certified recipients.

The database helps connect individuals with local opportunities, saving time, and avoiding extensive bureaucracy. In refugees' cases, this distributed ledger can significantly increase the possibility of obtaining legal work and access to essential services such as banking, healthcare, and welfare. With a verified blockchain work permit, a refugee can deal with employers or businesses directly and set up real-time automatic payments with shorter terms, such as automated tax payments when income is received. This solution offers businesses and governments the opportunity to better understand refugees' needs and provide tangible solutions that benefit everyone.
