Du | Self Sovereign ID

Self Sovereign ID (SSID)
Who are you? Who decides you’re really you and can be trusted? The answer, and the systems involved, differs in the real world and online. But blockchain technology could make establishing identity and trust much easier for everyone.
Du: The first step to SSID
Your ID stretches far beyond just a picture on a card. It is captured in every personal document your received and distributed to the companies you do business with. Du enables consumers to be in full control of their own data and be able to decide who they share their data with.

The formal street address dilemma
The first step to Financial inclusion is to open a bank account. Billions of people do not have a formal street address. It is estimated that more than 50% of South Africans do not have a formal street address. Delivering post and packages is a cumbersome process and people have to travel distances to get to their nearest Post Office to pickup their post and packages.
The Du Address
Du has a registered patent that makes your phone your physical and delivery address. This could double up to satisfy the KYC requirements of an address to open a bank account and/or obtain a mobile phone contract. Everyone can now get post and packages delivered wherever they are, based on their GPS location. People spend +/-10% of their working time at their homes and 100% of their time with their mobile phones

Du | Identity Theft

Consumer Data Breaches
Over the past year more than 1,3 billion consumer records worldwide have been compromised in one way or another. Companies continue to spend substantial amounts of money to secure their own data centres and access to their customer data. However, none of these companies provide the consumer with a tool to detect ID fraud as soon as it happens. The consumer is left in the cold and has to pay a hefty price when someone fraudulently use their information to defraud them.

Du | KYC

Du & Financial Inclusion
Consumers are burdened with AML/KYC legislation. KYC is cumbersome and Banks/Mobile phone companies and Credit Providers does not make it easy for the consumer. Almost every time they visit a one of these organisations they must go through this process even though this has been done before. KYC Information is not portable and consumer is left with the burden and responsibility to continuously make and carry required documents with them. Annual verification increases client anxiety levels and these organisations loose clients because of this burden.
Paperless KYC
Du provides paperless KYC with a twist. Du verifies consumer data against numerous third party data bases (rating the quality of the data) and include the consumer (data subject) when sharing their paperless information with a financial services or mobile phone company.
