Metadium and XYO Partner to Bring the Power of Identity Back to The Individual

Partnership to Leverage Geospatial Data to Improve Identity Management
for Users Globally

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#InternetofThingslt;/agt;–XYO
(Kucoin: $XYO), the geospatial cryptonetwork, today announced it has
partnered with Metadium,
a next-generation identity protocol that enables users to control the
digital destiny of their online and offline identities. The partnership
promises to develop new ways, including the use of new geospatial data,
to make identity management accessible and more effective for
individuals and their devices.

“There are multiple ways to manage identity, and we focus on building
concrete ways to solve that challenge while putting control firmly in
the hands of the individual,” said Justin Park, CEO of Metadium. “Our
partnership with XYO will add a powerful location-verified component,
toward creating a free world through self-sovereign identity. We look
forward to integrating with the XYO SDK, and to building a unique
ecosystem based on verified identities for people as well as devices.”

Metadium is an ecosystem built on a public identity blockchain, and the
Metadium team is working hard to empower individuals around the world
through Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI). The SSI model enables individuals
to possess sole ownership over their offline and online identities, and
also to fully control the sharing and distribution of their personal
data, including ownership, management and use of their identity only
with their consent–all without the need for intermediaries.

As part of this partnership, Metadium will leverage the XYO IoT-based
cryptographic blockchain network and protocols to add location and other
heuristic data verification to the already-powerful Metadium solution.
Both teams look forward to the many possibilities the partnership is
expected to enable for consumers and business users globally.

“We’re glad to be partnering with Metadium – their decentralized
solutions are an efficient way for users to safeguard and manage their
identities,” said XYO CEO and Co-Founder Arie Trouw. “Integrating our
geolocation-based data validation to the identity management Metadium is
doing can significantly improve security and control for users, and we
see that as a significant win for everyone.”
