“We’re very happy to have achieved this certification, which joins our recent Cyber Essentials Plus certification in showcasing our ability to provide safe and secure solutions.” said Adam Vaziri, Blockpass CEO. “Whilst we ensure we keep to the highest standards for regulatory requirements and good practices, it is vindicating to have the standard of our work verified by an internationally trusted body such as the British Assessment Bureau.”
Blockpass has grown significantly in size and use since its inception, both in the number and range of users and organizations it has partnered with and the scope of its work. Blockpass continues to develop its digital identity protocol with updates and additions to improve the compliance experience. The existential need for DeFi projects to be regulatory compliant and the recent integrations and legal developments have led to a surge in interest for Blockpass’ On-Chain KYC(R), the only live zero knowledge solution for Crypto KYC, and Unhosted Wallet KYC solution finally enabling blockchains and DeFi platforms to have a compliance layer. Through its work with Animoca Brands from early 2022, Blockpass provides a zero knowledge KYC service where the delivery of the verification result is provably sent and shown on a blockchain without sharing the underlying data. This represents a significant step towards the future Blockpass hopes to bring about where identity verification can be proved without revealing any personal information at all.
