微软、超级账本和联合国加入区块链身份联盟ID 2020

在昨日的达沃斯世界经济论坛上,包括科技巨头微软、区块链联盟超级账本(Hyperledger)、援助机构Mercy Corps和联合国国际计算中心在内的多家企业和机构同时宣布,将共同加入区块链的数字身份项目——ID2020联盟。

ID2020联盟希望通过区块链技术让用户直接拥有和控制他们的个人数据。据悉,目前全球有11亿多人因无法证明自己的身份而难以获得福利和服务。而来自世界银行的研究显示,这种情况也引发了诸如人口贩卖等更为严重的问题。

该项目目前已收到微软的100万美元捐款,以及埃森哲(Accenture)和洛克菲勒基金会(Rockefeller Foundation)等实体的捐款。该项目的创始成员之一全球咨询巨头埃森哲(Accenture)去年夏天在纽约举行的ID 2020联盟峰会上宣布了100万美元的投资。

此外,相关新闻稿还解释称,用户拥有的这个区块链数字身份将包括政府颁发的合法身份证明形式,并允许对个人和机构进行无缝认证。

去年6月,微软和埃森哲为ID 2020推出了一种区块链原型,该原型是基于一种私有版本的以太坊区块链。

Tech giant Microsoft and blockchain alliance Hyperledger have joined blockchain-based digital identity initiative, the ID2020 Alliance.

Announced during the World Economic Forum at Davos in Switzerland yesterday, the alliance – which aid agency Mercy Corps and the U.N. International Computing Center have also just joined – aims to improve people's lives through provision of digital identities.

According to a press release, the group is developing solutions with a focus on user's direct ownership and control over their personal data using blockchain technology. At issue is the fact that over 1.1 billion people face not able to prove their identity, and thus struggle to access benefits and services. The situation also gives rise to more serious issues such as human trafficking, according to the World Bank.

The initiative has now received a $1 million donation from Microsoft, as well as contributions from entities including Accenture and the Rockefeller Foundation. Accenture, one of the founding member of the initiative, announced a $1 million investment during the ID2020 Alliance summit last summer at New York.

David Treat, MD of the global blockchain practice at Accenture said:

"Decentralized, user-controlled digital identity holds the potential to unlock economic opportunity for refugees and others who are disadvantaged, while concurrently improving the lives of those simply trying to navigate cyberspace securely and privately."

The release explained that digital identity that is user-owned would include government-issued forms of legal identification and allow a seamless authentication process for people and institutions.

"We are building an ecosystem of partners committed to working across national and institutional borders to address this challenge at scale," Dakota Gruener, the Executive Director of the ID2020 Alliance, noted.

Last June, Microsoft and Accenture unveiled a blockchain prototype for ID2020, that is powered by a private version of the ethereum blockchain.
