unPassport: An iNation Document Storage Facility
VANCOUVER, CA: Blockchain provider, iNation, declares the release of a Minimum Viable Product, unPassport, to secure and store documents for users. This service will provide secure verifying and storing of data in the Blockchain.
unPassport is a data backup storage for consumers, especially for travelers. It allows them to securely upload their first few pages of their passport on a cloud-based storage facility within Blockchain, a disruptive public ledger technology for the digital currency known as Bitcoin. The uploaded data from unPassport is encrypted and a hash-file (a long string of numbers and letters) is created and then stored using vendor BlockCypher in blockchain.
The image of the passport files are encrypted and stored using IPFS, a new peer-to-peer hypermedia distribution protocol, accessible from web on any devices from anywhere.
“unPassport is utilizing cutting-edge technology to prevent fraud and digital ID theft through Proof of Existence by storing that data in a distributed manner while being simple enough for any non-technical person to use,” states Nathan Wosnack, co-founder and CCO of iNation.
“Before traveling internationally, individuals and business people make copies of their first few passport pages, and give those pages to someone who isn’t flying in the event their passport is either misplaced or stolen,” recommends the U.S. Department of State.
“iNation is a pioneer in blockchain-based governance services and is bridging the gap between the Bitcoin world and the real-world. We’re very excited to be the first in the world to have a viable solution in place for global travelers,” adds Mr. Wosnack.
