UTU and Hypersign Partner to Enhance Digital Trust, Identity, & Access Management

UTU and Hypersign will work together to add a trust layer and endorsement scores for online identity verification and access control.

We are excited to announce our partnership with Hypersign to help build trusted relationships between people and organizations across online platforms based on reliable and verifiable information!

What is Hypersign?

Hypersign is solving the growing market of consumer identity and access management that is facing a rise of data breaches due to the lack of data protection and strong authentication. 

They offer a simple-to-use authentication solution that secures user data by combining digital identity with blockchain. By incorporating biometrics into the blockchain, Hypersign provides password-less authentication, authorization, and verification and can integrate in minutes with

existing ecosystems due to its full compatibility with OAuth. 

Hypersign is on a mission to:

  1. Eliminate data breaches
  2. Empower humans to regain control of their personal data
  3. Democratize security for enterprises at an affordable price point

How Hypersign and UTU will work together

The partnership between Hypersign and UTU stems from a shared belief to develop a more secure, private, and trustworthy digital world through the power of decentralized blockchain. 

Hypersign will integrate our trust infrastructure to develop and display trust scores for their users. Whenever users perform trustworthy actions, such as properly logging into a website, making a purchase, or other tasks, UTU’s AI-based Trust API will analyze these interactions, in addition to other shared data, to generate a trust score for each user. This trust score will allow other users and service providers to make better decisions on whether to verify and engage with these entities. 

Hypersign and UTU strongly highlight data privacy as a top priority within the discussion of our partnership. When it comes to collecting personal user data, we both believe that consent by the user is a must and they should have full control on how much data can be accessed or shared.  Therefore, users will be rewarded for providing and sharing their data into the ecosystem with non-transferable utility tokens such as our UTU Tokens (UTT) as means of ‘Tokenizing Trust’.  

We are thrilled to work with Hypersign in driving forward the trust economy in the decentralized world!

“I’m excited to know that Hypersign and UTU share a common belief and principles around building trust in the digital world. When it comes to the web, people need to verify and feel confident that the party at the other end is who they say they are through digital identity. UTU is dedicated to next questions:“Who is this person in relation to me? And why should I trust them?” In this sense UTU and Hypersign are natural partners. We look forward to working with Hypersign to provide the trust that people need to transact and interact online safely and privately.”
