Headline: Nuggets – Take Back Control of Your Data


We will cover the following areas:

– Developing one of the first consumer blockchain platforms to give users a single biometric tool for payment, login, and identity verification, without sharing or storing private data.

– The privacy crisis: each of us has private data stored with 100+ services, creating vast and vulnerable silos of sensitive customer information.

– How Nuggets is using blockchain technology to solve that crisis, with huge benefits for consumers and corporates alike.

– Where next for Nuggets?

About Nuggets

Nuggets is an e-commerce payments and ID platform. It stores your personal and payment data securely in the blockchain, so you never have to share it with anyone – not even Nuggets. It was inspired by CEO Alastair Johnson’s experience of having his payment details used fraudulently – and the complicated, frustrating process that ensued. Nuggets solves this problem, using zero knowledge storage, encryption, privacy, security and trust, all combined with the decentralised immutable ledger.

For consumers, Nuggets is a single, secure sign-on for payment, login and ID verification, with no tracking or selling of your activity. Access is purely through biometrics to replace usernames and passwords. For businesses, Nuggets will mean the end of vast, vulnerable databases of customer data, minimising the risk of regulatory issues. The Nuggets platform is agnostic, and will be available across e-commerce platforms and payment gateways.
