Meet our team

Vision & Mission

Our vision

Our vision is to become the de-facto payment mechanism for authentic/trusted data regardless of country, industry or underlying technology. This is all in service of a much greater mission – to give people and companies back their privacy and control of their data.

We believe the adoption of self-sovereign identity (SSI) is key to enabling our mission. This is why we are building commercial models through a blockchain network, tokens and tokenomics.

By introducing payments and other sustainable economic incentives, we can turbocharge the adoption of SSI, return control and privacy to individuals, and enable new business models for authentic data.

We’re making it easier for individuals and organisations to trust each other.

Our values

We put our values to work every day as they underpin and guide our activities. Everything we do has to meet our core values and we won’t settle for less.
