About the ICO

Personal identification information of individuals has grown a lot lately as a process but the process of verification still hasn’t caught up. There have been many attempts at simplifying the process but none of these attempts focused on protecting the privacy of the individuals. This is where Velix.ID comes in. It aims at building a universal, transparent, decentralized, obscure, cost-efficient and time-efficient ecosystem for verification of identity. The problems with the existing identity verification system are:

  • Time Consumption
    In the existing system, identity verification can take a lot of time—days, weeks, or even months—which depletes much-needed resources which had the potential of generating revenue.
  • Privacy
    When data is stored in centralized locations, it is more vulnerable to various kinds of data breaches and hence risks exposing the user’s identity.
  • Security
    In the process of ID verification, Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is often leaked at various stages thus leading to the unsolicited use of the information.
  • Financial Loss
    The businesses incur a significant financial cost in the process of ID verification.

Features

  • Universal: It is not limited to any particular nationality or geographical boundary
  • Secure: It does not store any data about the user with it
  • Transparent: Its ecosystem provides verifiable authenticity for every transaction made on the blockchain
  • Decentralized: With Blockchain, Velix.ID is able to decentralize the whole infrastructure in a way that every institution can verify and prove the authenticity of transactions of information —recorded on a transaction ledger
  • User-optimized:  Its ecosystem will reduce the costs significantly as only a small fee has to be paid to the verified identity provider by the verified identity seeker
  • Obscure: Using zero-knowledge-proofs, the latest in the blockchain technology, Velix.ID blockchain ensures the privacy of transacting parties from other users on the blockchain

Conclusion

Velix.ID didn’t really come up with a disruptive idea. However, the field they are into has a lot of scope for improvement, and their inclusion can help change the whole scenario when it comes to verification of identity. Their team is pretty enthusiastic about the idea. It can actually turn out to be really successful if things go out as planned. For potential investors, this might be the right ICO to invest in. However, we would advise you to go through their whitepaper properly to be certain that you’re making the right choice.
