These are chat archives for extropyCoder/HackDay
I had an extensive chat with @ilonabudapesti in London over the Identity project and we were able to coin it down:
In short it will be an app that creates a sort of “electronic passport" for any individual in three steps: (1) User takes a proof-of-life selfie (2) User takes a picture of formal Doc/Utility bill (3) Location GPS is attached
In the backend, the system puts together a score based on various results like facial similarity, location accuracy relative to bill address … etc. Then it creates a hash of the identity/score tuple on the blockchain. The format for the user will be in the form of an Arabic calligraphy stamp!
For the purposes of the competition, work will be concentrated on the blockchain bit and the rest of the functionality will be simulated.
We have three more days to register the team, so please confirm your participation to take this further.
