■ Citizens possess many government-issued documents over their life: birth certificate, marriage certificate, single-status certificate, car registration, residence registration, library card, health benefits card, tax regisration, business licenses, etc.
■ Citizens engage in economic activity and often present these documents by email, fax, post, or in person; as an original and/or in copy; as-is and/or notarised by another party.
■ It is time consuming, costly and inefficient working with these documents while ensuring they are also authentic, have integrity, and are kept confidential.
■ The cost of that inefficiency, globally, is in excess of hundred of billions of dollars in lost productivity, environmental resources, and citizen disempowerment.
What is Stoneblock?
Stoneblock is a unified digital registry providing a mobile 'vault' for citizens and a globally accessible repository of their 'documents of value', as they are verified and issued by a government or authorities jurisdiction.
■ Customisable document types
■ Fully-permissioned blockchain
■ Government writes to Stoneblock when document is final
■ Secure mobile-first 'document vault' for the citizen
■ Fast, secure, inexpensive G2G interoperability
■ Does not replicate e-government 'workflow' systems
■ Integrates to existing database & identity infrastructure
