Blockpass Newsletter - A Merry Blockpass Christmas

December 2019
Happy Holidays from the Blockpass team! We have a lot to talk about in our last newsletter before Christmas, with a selection of updates and articles. Most importantly, this week sees a new release version for the Blockpass Mobile App; read on below to find out what new features are in the app store updates.

In our most recent blog article, we take a look at the Blockpass Marketplace, what its role is and how it adds value to businesses and customers alike. Speaking of the Marketplace, check out the new and current offers available in our Marketplace section below. Whilst our partners offer special deals, we wanted to provide a holiday present for Blockpass users as well, so we have turned the Blockpass faucet back on in the run up to Christmas - read on for details. Last year saw the first Blockpass Christmas Carol and this year we bring you another for a bit of holiday fun - check out the new versions to old classics and let us know what you think! Finally, this week we sit down with Blockpass Developer Thien Tran Ngoc Chan in our 5 Minutes With section. We hope you enjoy and have a Merry Christmas! We'll see you again in the New Year.


Smart Engines Improve Blockpass App
As part of our continual efforts to provide the best possible service, Blockpass has just released an update for our KYC solution - the Blockpass Mobile App. This latest development consists of the integration of a document recognition system from new partner Smart Engines. This recognition module enables identity documents to be scanned when building your identity.

Supporting passports, ID-cards, and driving licenses, this update makes creating an online profile even quicker and simpler. We will keep working to improve the app and welcome any feedback or suggestions. Click here to read about the latest update for the mobile app.


Value Added: Blockpass' Marketplace Promotes Growth & Security
In our latest blog post we take a look at the Blockpass Market, a development we added in the past year which brings many benefits to the Blockpass ecosystem. The main draw of the Marketplace for users is the wealth of offers available at various different times (see below for some of the latest).

For merchants and potential partners, having this Marketplace gives them a simple place to offer their services quickly and efficiently and also opens them up to a huge pool of forward-thinking and technologically-savvy people who may be interested in their work.

Turning On the Holiday Tap
After turning the Blockpass faucet on and off for the first time just a month ago, we bring the faucet back on for a special holiday giveaway. 100 PASS tokens are available for anyone why chooses to participate, even if you have done so before.

Registrations close at 10am GMT on the 24th December 2019 so make sure to register before then for your free tokens! Click here to participate and keep an eye open for any future faucet news coming in 2020.


Festive Fun at Blockpass
Around this time last year we first posted our own version of a popular Christmas carol with a reworked '12 Days of Christmas'. From the positive reception it received, we decided to expand this year with another. This time, we rework 'It Was On a A Starry Night', although others such as 'Gaudete' were a close second choice.

If you enjoy these Blockpass versions of holiday classics, we'd love to see clips of you singing them on social media! Any suggestions for other alternative Blockpass or identity-related titles we'd love to hear your ideas.
