Yoti, a digital identity app, announced a new partnership with blockchain platform Noku TokenRaise to provide secure identity verification for their customers. Noku TokenRaise is a blockchain platform to create tokens for ICOs.
Noku TokenRaise needs to verify the identity of all of their users, including organizations and investors. The partnership streamlines the onboarding process and removes the need for individuals to present paper ID documents. Yoti will help to streamline and simplify part of this process by letting individuals prove their identity in seconds, and share their verified details at the scan of a QR code.
With the Noku TokenRaise ecosystem, individuals have the opportunity to create their own token without any previous blockchain background, regardless of their coding skills. Individuals will now be able to use Yoti’s free digital identity app to share verified details and prove their identity on Noku TokenRaise in a simple, private and secure way.
