ICONLOOP is all forces to launch the mobile driver’s license in the second half of 2021. An exact date for launch is yet to be announced. 

What is ICONLOOP’s DID technology?

With the firm’s DID technology, the patrons can store their personal information and data in the Zeung mobile app. Whereas in the present scenario, the users store personal data via an encapsulated public server. These servers are easy to hack and get ruptured, making us lose all the private data. The ZZeung app provides users with an advanced retailing medium on their cell phones to manage their personal information. The app is safer and secure compared to the servers utilized right now. 

The DID technology is already under utilization by the government of Jeju Island for tapping the contacts. The technology is advantageous for both organizations and individuals. 

The Blockchain-based Driver’s License

The driving license we used to possess offline in a physical document form is available online through blockchain. ICONLOOP CEO Jonghyup Kim mentioned in a press release that the firm focuses on self-sovereignty of individual data. 

Global technological growth is evident, and the mass is significantly embracing these advancements!
