THEKEY Project is now developing a second-generation IDV solution for the internet via BDMI technology. BDMI stands for “Blockchain based Dynamic Multi-Dimension Identification” technology. Such a solution perfectly echoes the main requirements for identifying each other in the digital world, which is ‘The Key’ for migrating people from the real world to the online world.

BDMI, as the name of it, synergistically combines Dynamic Multi-Dimension Identification (“DMI”) technology and blockchain technology.

The results generated from the existing IDV technologies, which have been developed and applied on the internet, could be denied and altered. Blockchain uses an asymmetric cryptographic algorithm, ensuring the data transmission and the safety in utilization, which is characterized by several features e.g. immutability, irreversibility, security etc. In particular, smart contracts are realized by programmable scripts, increasing the practicability of Blockchain. With those features, the application dilemma of identity verification technology is overcome. The results generated from BDMI will be undeniable and unalterable.

THEKEY team is composed of experts and professionals from IDV, blockchain technology, R&D, marketing and data modeling etc. The team has worked on the industry solution design and POC of consortium blockchain in corporation with Hyperledger since 2015, and participated in many government affair blockchain projects. It is very experienced in using the government data in corporation with blockchain technology.

The founder and CEO of THEKEY, Catherine (Xueli) Li, The Most Outstanding Women Entrepreneur in China of the Year (All-China Women’s Federation, 2017) Founder of Dynamic Multi-dimension Identification technology. She has firstly introduced blockchain to DMI and has deep understanding of the industry application of blockchain

Ken Huang, Chief Blockchain and IDV Scientist of THEKEY, is CISSP, a world known international blockchain and identity verification expert. Founder of CGI Federal Identity Management Practice, and Cyber Security Competence Center.

The main achievements of the team are listed as below:

  • 23 copyrights have been obtained, 15 patents have been accepted by SIPO (State Intellectual Property office of the P.R.C) and start attestation process.
  • THEKEY’s first-generation IDV solution is currently in use for mobile social insurance pay in two pilot cities, which people can receive their payment for their pension, or healthcare insurance reimbursement. The IDV solution is currently being deployed in another 41 cities, covering more than 130 million people.
  • Personal identity data of 210 million people in 66 cities, authenticated by the relevant government authorities, are connected on a real-time basis. This constitutes a solid foundation of IDV. 
  • Commercial contracts signed with world-leading firms and the business model of our IDV products have already been partly proven.
  • Six relevant national laboratories have been set up together with government agencies, banks, insurance companies and one university.

As indicated in our white paper BDMI equals to DMI and Blockchain technology. BDMI not yet developed whilst DMI has been developed and well accepted by the government, banks and insurance companies. Our position now is to stick to the roadmap. BDMI will be developed and tested by Jun 2018, and the product will be ready between 2018 and 2019. In 2020, BDMI will be realized and deployed across the world.

Compared to other peers in IDV industry, who are also applying IDV into blockchain, BDMI has the following three advantages:

  • More reliable results – The supporting data is gathered in real time, is comprehensive, accurate and reliable. The data is also validated in advance by government agencies or other public institutions.
  • Lower cost - Full use of existing data sources. Avoidance of duplicate work for data collection, processing and authentication,
  • Better user experience – It is not necessary for individual users to install any application or upload any information.

NEO provides technical support to THEKEY. The smart economy NEO put forward is comprised of Digital Asset, Smart Contract and Digital Identity, which is an entire ecosystem. Digital identity is an indispensable element of NEO smart economy. THEKEY share the consensus with this idea and is willing to provide digital identity application for NEO ecosystem, in order to co-establish the digital identity system together with NEO. We are also happy to provide more digital identity applications on NEO in the future.

The THEKEY Ecosystem will be a decentralized autonomy community, which will consist of three components of participants, (Validator, Service Provider and Individual User) Smart Contracts and TKY Tokens. THEKEY token (“TKY Token”), as a major component of the Ecosystem, is the only method to settle smart contracts signed between the participants in THEKEY Ecosystem. Since every aspect of life is in need of identity verification, like security check, access permission, medical treatment and shopping etc. the utility of TKY token will be extremely high.

To fuel the development of the next-generation IDV solution and expansion of THEKEY Ecosystem, TKY tokens are now introduced and available for distribution.  There are 3 phases in the distribution plan - the Private Distribution with 3 tranches, Pre-Distribution stage and the international distribution stage (“Distribution”).  Subject to agreement to be signed with the buyer, please find the indicative terms and conditions below –
