Decentralized Identification Platform based on nodes on a blockchain using data sovereignty methodologies.
An identification system for health, membership for community, organizations and for sharing benefits.
The current methods of identification verification require a parent source for verification of identity. An example of this is the Status Card held in trust within the Federally mandated Indian Act in relation to First Nations Citizens of Canada. A use case would be: In order to receive health benefits from the organization First Nations Health Authority, one must provide a name, registration number (status card) and a date of birth to receive benefits otherwise they are denied service
● Individual Citizens
● First Nations Health Authority (and other Health orgs)
● First Nations Technology Council
● Canada Institute for Heath Information
● First Nations Information Governance Council
● Assembly of First Nations
● First Nations: historical treaty, modern treaty, Indian Act
● Territorial Govt
● Provincial / Federal govts
● Education orgs
This numbered system is based on colonial practices and has a deep rooted source of contention as an example of dependency on the Federal Government system of centralized control on Indigenous peoples. Identification can be an issue for First Nations communities.
There is also a lack of education for citizens who may want to participate in the tech sector as well as help with personal and economic growth. Data sovereignty is in question as well if Information is stored at a centralized server outside of the control of the First Nation and more importantly the individual citizen.
Barriers are created for citizens to access services due to the bureaucratic federal model. This greatly decreases healthy outcomes and greatly increases gaps in services and a pressure on First Nations communities. Organizations will continue to follow a federal model and a greater gap for Indigenous participation in solutions will continue to be the norm.
A custom UI / UX platform using immutable ledger and open time stamps as a tech solution with a social impact feature hosting training and education platforms. On premise server and cloud-based technologies for implementation at the local network level.
Indigelink would guide organizations like a First Nations or First Nations Health Authority to issue their own credentials to people and not rely on a centralized federal government system. Decentralized identity is key, can then run shared records as a federation of legit identity providers.
- Multiple solutions can be hosted on the servers including other open time stamp projects.
- Each person would have an “identity wallet” that they use. With further development “apps” can connect organizations and business and other services to Indigelink.
- Gamification: Teaching opportunities lie within rewards programs representing credit towards shopping, education or micro certification options for individuals. It also helps with personal identity and supports data sovereignty.
