About Distributed ID
Distributed ID is about simplifying and automating the arduous task that is KYC/AML (Know Your Customer/Anti Money Laundering). In today’s information age, widespread fraud and compliance concerns plague the minds of today’s financial firms. In addition, one of the limitations of blockchain technology is compliance and verification. Because everything is distributed and the application structure is radically different than traditional applications – we help solve the issues of both real world identity and digital identity.
