Using blockchain technology to authenticate and validate identification
The Blockchain Emergency ID is a rudimentary emergency ID, based on blockchain technology, for individuals who cannot obtain other documents of identification. The purpose is to cryptographically prove your existence and family relations, recorded on the Horizon blockchain, a distributed public ledger (like an international public notary, of sorts).
The Blockchain ID works like a mini ‘web-of-trust’ where family members have to verify each other’s family ties. Proving family relations can make it easier to reunite with your children, parents, or siblings who may be in different locations.
The ID form generates a QR code which users save on their mobile phone. All the information on the form is readable through that QR code.
