For immediate release - 7 March 2022 - Blockpass and cryptocurrency exchange Crypto.com are delighted to reveal a brand new partnership as both companies seek to support tokens and identity verification options in the crypto sphere. As part of this partnership, Crypto.com will display information and updates about Blockpass’ revolutionary KYC token ‘PASS’ via at https://crypto.com/price/blockpass, and the new PASStoken.org will incorporate Crypto.com’s seamless widget to display the latest PASS price.
In addition to this, Blockpass will be building an ‘Identify NFT’ system on the Cronos blockchain (launching PASS on Cronos at the same time) to bring support for compliant transactions to the Cronos ecosystem.
The concept of an Identity NFT system revolves around using a zero knowledge proof (ZKP) approach to bring identity verification options to the crypto sphere. In this, Decentralized Identifier (DID) standards are used to verify that users adhere to certain categories of information (for example, that they are over 21 years of age, or that they don’t reside in a country on a prohibited list) without revealing the underlying user’s raw data. Groundbreaking work on different forms and implementations of ZKP has been undertaken in the Blockpass Identity Lab at Edinburgh Napier University: https://identity-lab.blockpass.org/.
Crypto.com is a cryptocurrency exchange app based in Singapore which boasts 10 million users and crypto price pages for over 8000 tokens. In its mission to accelerate the world's transition to cryptocurrency, the Crypto.com Mobile App and Exchange provides the option to buy and sell more than 250 cryptocurrencies with over 20 fiat currencies. Users can enjoy a multitude of benefits, including the Crypto.com Visa card and staking rewards. Crypto.com prides itself on its speed, liquidity and security as it simplifies DeFi in preparation for the future of finance. Cronos is an EVM compatible sidechain running in parallel with the Crypto.org Chain. Cronos runs on a Proof of Authority (PoA) consensus algorithm and is powered by Ethermint - a PoS chain interoperable with Ethereum. It aims to massively scale the Chain DeFi ecosystem by allowing developers to rapidly port apps & smart contracts from Ethereum and other EVM-compatible chains.

Blockpass has grown significantly in size and use since its inception, both in the number and range of users and organizations it has partnered with and the scope of its work. Blockpass continues to develop its digital identity protocol with updates and additions to improve the compliance experience. The existential need for DeFi projects to be regulatory compliant and the recent integrations have led to a surge in interest for Blockpass’ On-Chain KYC® solution which promises to change the way blockchains enable compliance. Through its recent work with Animoca Brands, Blockpass is developing the ability to provide KYC where the delivery of the verification result is provably sent and shown on a blockchain without sharing the underlying data. This represents a significant step towards the future Blockpass hopes to bring about where identity verification can be proved without revealing any personal information at all.
Blockpass, the pioneer of On-Chain KYC®, is a fast, fully comprehensive KYC & AML screening software-as-a-service for blockchains, Crypto, Defi and other regulated industries. With Blockpass, you get an unmatched set of benefits for any compliance service that includes pay-as-you-go, no setup cost, no integration necessary, free testing, immediate launch and at the lowest cost. Blockpass’ KYC Connect® platform enables businesses to select requirements for customer onboarding that can include ID authentication, face-matching, address checking, AML ongoing monitoring and/or screening of sanctions lists, politically exposed persons (PEP), and adverse media. Through Blockpass, end-users easily create a verified portable identity that they can control and re-use to onboard with any service instantly. By integrating with Chainlink Network – a decentralized oracle solution - last year, Blockpass introduced the first On-Chain KYC® solution that will service many blockchains in the years to come. Additionally, Blockpass’ partnership with Animoca Brands has demonstrated how verification and adherence to standards can be proved on a blockchain without revealing any underpinning data - a significant boon for verifying Animoca Brands’ NFT prize winners and a huge step towards securing the ecosystem of the Metaverse. The Blockpass App is available from the App Store and Google Play.
