KYC / AML solution (fintech)
The cost of KYC to the financial industry exceeds $1billion annually across the globe. The implementation of self sovereign identity will dramatically reduce the burden on banks, making it far easier to identify counterparties, correlate associations and report on AML concerns automatically. This project would appeal to investment funds focusing on fintech.
Banking Customer Identity (fintech)
Self sovereign identity improves customer security, user experience and reduces the operational burden on institutions. Multiple product extensions can be build to leverage these benefits, including new ways to operate credit. This project would appeal to investment funds focusing on fintech.
Self Sovereign Escrow (fintech)
An escrow service using self sovereign identity. A market size in excess of £800m in the UK alone which, with a relatively small investment raise will disrupt the house buying process and generate substantial opportunities for exit. This project would appeal to investment funds focusing on fintech.
Digital Identity in Communications (social / fintech)
This project uses sovereign identity to provide a solution for spam, phishing and to help social media platforms avoid harsh regulations which are seeming more likely due to hate speech, fake news, posting of inappropriate content etc. It allows governments and businesses to protect their citizens and clients from fraud. It allows families to protect their dependents from communication which is potentially fraudulent or harmful. This is a single technology solution with four very large channel extensions and ongoing global revenue streams, based on an exchange model. This project would appeal to all types of investors, especially social impact and philanthropists.
Sovereign Recruitment (social)
This project has great potential for a JV with a world leading recruitment agency. This patent pending service can allow a world class agency to protect their position, drive digital revenue and provide their clients (organisations and candidates) with fantastic benefits. This will make employment process far easier for everyone, making employment far more efficient and helping to make the economy more productive. This project would appeal to investors who want to hedge exposure during downturns, when more candidates actively seek employment.
Automotive (social / fintech / public sector)
This self sovereign identity project has three channel extensions which can provide benefits to the public sector, businesses and end users. The projects are already gaining momentum through our partner network and address convenience, security, and new ways of working which will make our use of transport easier for the future. There are still opportunities for institutional investors to participate in this project.

BEST INNOVATIVE THINKERS
Several times per year we will review the best innovation and determine if it has the potential to make impressive returns.
