YOVO, a mobile network built on the Stellar blockchain that is committed to openness, fairness, and transparency and Blockpass, a data secure user identity and compliance solution, announced today their new partnership.
Together, the two companies want to make it possible to sign up for mobile phone service from anywhere, at any time, all while ensuring full data security for the user. Integration of YOVO and Blockpass will make signing up for mobile service fast and secure. It will only take a few moments for new users to start using YOVO services, and remain in full control of their own personal information.

The addition of a mobile network is unlike any other partner we have added to our ecosystem to date and brings very exciting possibilities to our network.”[/perfectpullquote]
YOVO offers a range of SIM-based mobile products and with YOVO Pay, it is also possible for users to pay for their current mobile service in cryptocurrency (in any of over 130 countries), without having to change their network or SIM. Also, the next-generation YOVO GO service makes it possible to have up to four extra numbers on a single device with a virtual SIM.
Blockpass is digital identity application and service which brings control back to the user. Blockpass provides a streamlined and cost-effective user onboarding process for regulated industries and any kind of online service. From the Blockpass application, users can create, store, and manage a data-secure digital identity that can be used for an entire ecosystem of services or token purchase.

Your smartphone is easily the most valuable device in your life and our partnership with Blockpass ensures it is protected from many of the known security and identity issues that mobile users face.”[/perfectpullquote]
The partnership comes after Blockpass announced last week that token-trading platform Ethfinex would integrate its solution as part of their standard compliant ICO solution. Blockpass also launched a world-first advanced blockchain identity research laboratory, the Blockpass Identity Lab at the end of September in collaboration with Edinburgh Napier University.
