Blockpass Newsletter – Partnerships, Digital Identity and AML

Courtney Lau | November 2020

We have a bunch of things to bring to your attention in our newsletter this week. First up we have news of our latest partnership as we begin work with Base Protocol to provide KYC services as they begin their private token pre-sale. Following this we feature two of our most recent articles, one exploring the necessity of a secure digital identity solution and the other looking at the issues of money laundering in different situations. Before we show our Marketplace offers, which now includes our latest partners at Base Protocol, we also feature Blockpass' own extensive current offer. Finally we have a chat with Khanh Duong, one of our skilled Mobile Developers, in our 5 Minutes With section. As many of us continue to face lockdowns and social distancing measures, we hope Blockpass' services can help as we adjust to new ways of life and open up new avenues for working.

Blockpass Partners with Base Protocol
Blockpass’ latest partner has just been announced as Base Protocol, a synthetic crypto asset whose price is determined by the total market cap of all cryptocurrencies. About to launch its private pre-sale, Base Protocol will be using Blockpass to provide fast, secure and efficient eKYC services.
Acting as a one-stop trading instrument, Base Protocol’s token, BASE, can be used for a number of purposes, such as allowing users to speculate on all cryptocurrencies simultaneously, acting as a safe transitory currency, or as a price reference for all cryptocurrencies.

Enabling Regulatory Compliance in the Blockchain
Whilst blockchain was originally viewed as an anonymous and somewhat anarchic environment, development and exploration of its properties have led to a better understanding of it, and the realisation that it is better described as pseudo-anonymous. As has been shown by law-enforcement, it is possible to track and identify people with enough information.
Despite this, in order to fully realise blockchain’s potential, and to allow blockchain to be used with regulated industries, there needs to be an effective, user-centric identity verification solution which can be used to gate suitability for access to certain services and to prove eligibility. Click here to read our recent article which explores the benefits that blockchain identity verification can bring and notes the types of industries it can aid.

Exploring Money Laundering Issues and Identity Solutions
One of the main issues that KYC and AML measures have been developed to combat is the ever-present threat of money laundering. There are different ways in which money laundering can happen and as technology evolves it has provided new avenues of attack for criminals that need to be countered.
Fortunately, digital identity solutions can go a long way towards stopping the issue of money laundering. Organisations such as the FATF have even release advice on this issue, and guidance on how digital identity can be used to improve security. Click here to read one of our latest articles which details  how money laundering can take place and digital identity’s role in thwarting it.

Blockpass’ Current Limited Offer
There is currently an amazing offer on from Blockpass in the form of a massive 90%+ discount to Blockpass’ services! For six months, the price for companies to screen an individual will be starting as low as $0.12, an offer only possible due to the nature of our efficient, secure, innovative and time-saving identity verification service.
There is a trend, as the current pandemic impacts the way we work and live, to move to remote business and working. With this shift, being able to identify and verify customers or colleagues has never been more vital, and through our KYC Connect solution we hope that businesses and employees alike find it simple to adapt.
