Enhanced user experience with Altme and TezID

The partnership between Altme and TezID brings significant improvements to the user experience for Tezos blockchain users. With the integration of Altme's SSI verifiable credentials and TezID's whitelist, users can effortlessly share specific identity information across multiple applications and services.

They benefit from the privacy advantages offered by SSI, including "selective disclosure" and "Zero-Knowledge Proof (ZKP)." Selective disclosure empowers users to share only relevant and non-intrusive information with applications and services, while zero-knowledge proof allows them to prove certain aspects about themselves without disclosing sensitive underlying data.

Verifying users on Tezos decentralized applications 🥷 

Altme's SSI credentials combined with TezID integration enable Tezos applications (dApps) to verify various user attributes such as KYC, age, citizenship / residency, or educational background.

This capability ensures tailored experiences and services for users while upholding privacy protection and compliance with upcoming regulations. Tezos applications can seamlessly verify user information on-chain, eliminating the need for off-chain storage and enhancing data security.

Simplifying onboarding and reusability of identity

The partnership between Altme and TezID facilitates the seamless reuse of identity information proofs across multiple Tezos decentralized applications (dApps) and services. This streamlines the onboarding process for new users, granting them access to specific applications or services without requiring the submission of personal information stored off-chain. Users can conveniently engage with various Tezos applications (dApps) while maintaining control over their data.

Shaping the future of identity on Tezos 🚀 

Altme is proud to be at the forefront of shaping the future of identity on the Tezos blockchain. Tezos applications seeking to adopt the future standard of digital identity (SSI) can now leverage the power of Altme's SSI verifiable credentials through the open-source TezID Github documentation.

By embracing this partnership, the Tezos community contributes to the advancement of self-sovereign identity and sets a new standard for privacy-centric identity verification on the blockchain.

Conclusion

The partnership between Altme and TezID marks a significant milestone in the advancement of self-sovereign identity in the Tezos blockchain ecosystem. The integration of Altme's SSI verifiable credentials empowers Tezos applications to perform on-chain verification of user information, enhancing the user experience, privacy protection, and regulatory compliance. This collaboration promotes the seamless reuse of identity information across multiple applications while giving users full control over their data.
