It is a "digital identification card" that will be implemented in the headquarters of the Chinese province of Anhui. The system was developed with the objective of guaranteeing a data record with verified information , which is shared within the company and even with other companies in the province.
"The blockchain identity authentication system builds a reliable multicenter system (...) that connects the user's identity information in series according to the generation time to form the blockchain identity data ," the company explained to a local medium.
Furthermore, the firm remarked that it improves the efficiency of identity authentication and " avoids system unavailability problems caused by the failure of the central server ."

As announced by the company in a statement, the system simplifies identity verification processes and streamlines client onboarding, loan applications and processing.
