UTU and Hypermine will work together to add a trust layer and endorsement scores for online identity verification and access control.

We are excited to announce our partnership with Hypermine to help build trusted relationships between people and organizations across online platforms based on reliable and verifiable information!

UTU will be integrated into Hypermine’s blockchain-based digital identity product, Hypersign.

Who is Hypermine and what is Hypersign?

Hypermine is the team behind the identity project Hypersign, and they are solving the growing market of consumer identity and access management that is facing a rise of data breaches due to the lack of data protection and strong authentication.

They offer a simple-to-use authentication solution that secures user data by combining digital identity with blockchain. By incorporating biometrics into the blockchain, Hypersign provides password-less authentication, authorization, and verification and can integrate in minutes with existing ecosystems due to its full compatibility with OAuth.

By building Hypersign, Hypermine is on a mission to:

  1. Eliminate data breaches
  2. Empower humans to regain control of their personal data
  3. Democratize security for enterprises at an affordable price point

How Hypermine and UTU will work together

The partnership between Hypermine and UTU stems from a shared belief to develop a more secure, private, and trustworthy digital world through the power of decentralized blockchain.

Hypermine will integrate our trust infrastructure into Hypersign to develop and display trust scores for their users.

Whenever users perform trustworthy actions, such as properly logging into a website, making a purchase, or other tasks, UTU’s AI-based Trust API will analyze these interactions, in addition to other shared data, to generate a trust score for each user. This trust score will allow other users and service providers to make better decisions on whether to verify and engage with these entities.

Hypermine and UTU strongly highlight data privacy as a top priority. When it comes to collecting personal user data, we both believe that consent by the user is a must and they should have full control on how much data can be accessed or shared. Therefore, users will be rewarded for providing and sharing their data into the ecosystem with non-transferable utility tokens such as our UTU Trust Tokens (UTT) as means of ‘Tokenizing Trust’.

We are thrilled to work with Hypermine in driving forward the trust economy in the decentralized world!

“‘Trust’ has been a long time missing component of the digital world and I’m fascinated as to how technology is evolving and morphing into human-like interactions. Between UTU’s intelligent applications and Hypersign’s cryptographic systems, the partnership covers a broad spectrum of technologies to cover all aspects of digital trust to ensure that machines deliver (trust) where humans have failed.”

Irfan Khan, CEO & Founder of Hypermine

“I’m excited to know that Hypermine and UTU share a common belief and principles around building trust in the digital world. When it comes to the web, people need to verify and feel confident that the party at the other end is who they say they are through digital identity. UTU is dedicated to the next questions: “Who is this person in relation to me? And why should I trust them?” In this sense UTU and Hypermine are natural partners. We look forward to working with Hypermine to provide the trust that people need to transact and interact online safely and privately.”

-Jason Eisen, Founder and CEO of UTU
