A Personal Stamp of Uniqueness
BrightID uses the people you know (a trust graph) to enforce one-account-per-person for important applications like voting and universal basic income.
A brightID proves you're a unique person.
BrightIDs have the following characteristics:
- Can be used anonymously. No personal data or biometrics are used for verification.
- Verified by a trusted group of close personal contacts plus a decentralized graph database.
- A lost or compromised ID can be replaced by reconnecting with a few close personal contacts.
Decentralized & Anonymous
The network consists of volunteers running nodes. Nodes host the trust graph used for verification, but there's no personal information stored there.
ID creation and connectons to people and apps are managed though the brightID mobile app.
We offer an API to third-parties to connect to the brightID mobile app and brightID nodes to verify users as unique.
See our wiki for dev instructions.
