What is EBSI, and why is it important πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ί

EBSI is a blockchain-based infrastructure supported by the European Commission. It is designed to provide a reliable way for European businesses and citizens to prove their identity online while protecting their data and privacy.

EBSI leverages verifiable credentials (VCs), a new data format that is owned by the users, tamper-proof, and instantly verifiable. Verifiable Credentials can be used to prove a wide range of things, such as identity, age, education credentials, employment status and more!

What you can do with the TALAO Wallet πŸ“²

TALAO is EBSI-conformant, which means it can be used to store, manage, and share verifiable data supported by the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure.

TALAO can be used to manage verifiable data for a wide range of use cases, including :

  • Identity verification
  • Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance
  • Education or professional credentials verification
  • Age proving
  • Employee status authentication
  • Digital Product Passeport (DPP) projects
  • And much more!

Here are some specific examples of how TALAO can be used :

  • A student can use TALAO to verify their EU educational credentials to a potential employer. 
  • An age-restricted online business can use TALAO to verify users age.
  • An employee can use TALAO to authenticate their identity before accessing company resources.
  • A financial business can use TALAO to verify the identity of their customers and comply with KYC and AML regulations.
  • A government agency can use TALAO to verify the identity of citizens accessing government services.
