Shared directory for managing identities

The concept of an identity within the io.finnet ecosystem plays a pivotal role in simplifying and securing transactions across various platforms and currencies. Identities serve as a comprehensive directory, not unlike a digital contact book, where users can securely store and manage vital information about the people they transact with.

What is an Identity?

An identity record is a digital representation of a person within the IO system. These records remain private to your organization at all times. It encompasses the necessary details that allow for smooth financial transactions and interactions, including but not limited to:

  • Basic KYC information
  • Public keys for digital assets
  • Bank account details for traditional assets

This holistic approach ensures that whether you are dealing with fiat or crypto transactions, all the necessary information is at your fingertips.

These identities are not only crucial for transactional purposes but also feed into the larger IO ecosystem:

  • Analytics Platform: By integrating identity data, the analytics platform gains enhanced insights, helping you to make data-driven decisions.
  • Compliance Platform: The compliance landscape necessitates thorough knowledge of transaction parties. With identities integrated, meeting regulatory requirements becomes more straightforward.
