Shyft, Uulala and KABN announce blockchain POC to facilitate the onboarding of the global unbanked community

Barbados / Mexico / Gibraltar May 9, 2019 Shyft Network Inc. (Shyft), the credentials verification network that provides a protocol for instant trust generation and portability, today announced that it has partnered with financial service companies KABN Network KABN (Gibraltar) Limited (KABN) and Uulala Inc. (Uulala) to build a proof-of-concept (POC) for onboarding the unbanked community through state of the art digital channels with a goal of efficient financial inclusion.

This first-of-its-kind POC will be initially launched as a pilot in Mexico, for the unbanked community. Traditionally excluded from emerging markets due to non-existing credit histories or bank accounts, these individuals will be provided with a comprehensive, verified identity, financial services, and digital currency solutions.

Shyft, KABN, and Uulala will act in concert with each other, allowing the free flow of technology and complementary services which will be available via their various platforms. The onboarding flow for clients is done through the Uulala mobile application providing the unbanked access to financial services including building an international blockchain based credit profile to qualify for microfinancing. KABN will be leveraging their proprietary biometric, blockchain based, Always On, identity verification and digital currencies-to-fiat Visa card transaction program services while using Shyft’s blockchain protocol for scalable and secure data sharing and its attestation layer for credentials validation.

“Our vision is to empower organizations and individuals in unbanked communities and provide them with affordable financial services to enter the formal economy, build a global blockchain credit score and a borderless system for financial inclusion. A number of global NGOs and Vatican supported initiatives like Humanity 2.0 and The Laudato Si Challenge have committed to onboard 1 million migrants and refugees to the Uulala platform by 2020. The Uulala platform provides the initial step up elevating individuals out of the vicious poverty loop by providing a financial identity and access to financial choices which previously did not exist,” stated Oscar Garcia, Uulala CEO.

“Shyft is being built and designed around addressing real needs and problems. For us, it’s important to keep a user-centric privacy-focused approach to build better standards for digital identity and we see this POC as the first step towards building a more inclusive financial future for all” says Bruce Silcoff, CEO of Shyft International.

“Verifying and validating an individual’s unique identity provides a primary vehicle in which to support the transfer of goods and services from any organization to that person and confirm that the transaction was true and valid for both parties.  KABN’s blockchain-based, biometric and GDPR-compliant identification process provides a perfect application to support this ecosystem, helping elevate the underbanked to participate in services and opportunities not previously available to them,” said Ben Kessler, KABN CEO “This, together with KABN’s digital currency linked Visa card and banking wallet program, enables a host of settlement and payment possibilities to promote financial inclusion.”
