KUALA LUMPUR: MyEG Services Bhd’s blockchain platform Zetrix has introduced its latest digital qualification platform that offers Chinese citizens the option to digitise their identification card and driving licence on a blockchain, which can be presented when travelling abroad.
MyEG group managing director Wong Thean Soon said the service would begin by offering Chinese citizens the option to digitise their identification card or driving licence as a verified credential (VC) on Xinghuo International, China’s public blockchain international gateway.
“Through Zetrix, connected with Xinghuo, VC for identification card or driving licence can be presented abroad for verification by any party wishing to verify the identity or driving licence data,” Wong said at the launch of “Zcert: Cross-border digital verified qualification document system on the Zetrixxinghuo Blockchain” last Saturday.
Zetrix is a layer-one public blockchain that facilitates smart contracts and provides privacy, security and scalability, serving as a blockchain gateway to facilitate global trade by implementing Web3 services.
Wong said the launch also marked the commercialisation of the collaboration between MyEG and Guangxi Beitou IT Innovation Technology Investment Group Co Ltd (Beitou), a state-owned company in China and a subsidiary of IT Guangxi Beibu Gulf Investment Group listed as one of the top 500 companies in China.
“Due to the immutable nature of the blockchain, parties wishing to verify documents will receive a guarantee of VC and all data contained in the document is valid and unaltered,” he said. — Bernama
