Lynked.World is a multi-faceted blockchain based ecosystem which will enable businesses to build customized forms and applications to cater to their own specific needs for providing different services to consumers, without needing to be concerned about the authenticity of shared data, documents and the digital identities of the different entities involved in convenient and secure way.

Lynked.World is a blockchain based secure platform for individuals and institutions to own, control and share digitally trusted identity, data and documents.

Lynked.World solves critical problems faced by individuals and organizations in today’s digital world:

  • An absence of a guaranteed secure and trusted identity of each individual and entity
  • No common premise for Trust and Authenticity of data across various use cases
  • Inefficiency and increased costs due to intermediaries involved in processes
  • Inability to provide access to many kinds of services over digital platforms due to the non-secure nature of digital identity and associated data

Our Ecosystem

The Lynked.World eco system is a multi-faceted solution comprising of an entire application platform developed from ground up to be able to harness the features of blockchain technologies. Our platform is based on the Ethereum blockchain and comprises of feature rich modules solving real life problems around trust and authenticity of digital identities, documents and data for both consumers and corporates alike.

Here, at Lynked.World, our driving principle is to overcome the “trust barrier” in digital identities, data and documents with the help of a blockchain based application development platform. Our vision is to ensure that trustworthiness of our digital identities, data and documents is transformed from a question mark to a veritable asset, using blockchain technology. We aim to provide a fully functional ecosystem, with provisions for developing easy to use configurable
forms, and entirely new applications deployable by any organization on need basis – providing relevant and tailored services for consumers focusing on a plethora of scenarios from daily life. Consequently, this would reveal many new explorable avenues for services that can be offered using our stage. “Trust” is now a dependable friend on our side, the veracity of our digital persona being inherent and embedded in our offering.

“Trust” and “Authenticity” of Digital Identities, Data and Documents – Problems and Opportunities

The current age of communications through internet or electronic media rely on trust as an implicit factor. There is no immediate and inherent check of the authenticity of the information and data being exchanged, nor are there stringent rules or guidelines in every case, governing the same. A prime example being the identities of the parties involved in such communications. Although in many cases such laws are in force to ensure reliability (for example when setting up a retail store online), they are mostly related to commercial and
corporate identities. Individual identities are a different matter however, where a rule-in-force can be easily circumvented, misinterpreted, or even conveniently interpreted, in the end rendering the rule(s) inapplicable and unfit for use.

Countless problems surface because of the above-mentioned facts. Some of these are minor and can be safely ignored. For a vast majority however, an undesirable or even more serious outcome is the harsh reality, as may be better understood from the examples as we cite below (data sourced from various surveys, magazines, journals, internet etc.):

Many services cannot be availed digitally and require a person to be physically present due to lack of an immutable and verifiable digital identity and a platform where these services can be offered. Registration for different services still require paper documents to be exchanged and are not efficient. In cases where such services are rendered digitally, available platforms are not intelligent enough to identify an individual and assist in the application process. This requires an individual to repeat the same information repeatedly on
multiple platforms. This is true in case of many government services as well, for example when applying and receiving birth certificates, residential certificates etc. The market potential of such services in each country would run into billions of dollars.

Digital Personas and identities are not verifiable. In a July 2017 Forbes article, cautioning employers’ reliance on LinkedIn profiles, it is estimated that there are between 16.5 and 33.6 million fake LinkedIn accounts. In April 2016, LinkedIn’s annual report corroborated the concern of faked LinkedIn accounts, “…we do not have a reliable system for identifying and counting duplicate or fraudulent accounts, or deceased, incapacitated or other non-members and so we
rely on estimates and assumptions, which may not be accurate…there are no methodologies available that would provide us with an exact number of non-actual member types of accounts.”

• Authenticity of digitally shared data and documents cannot be established easily. As a result, physical paper documents either in original or as copies still have to be shared in person or via post adding to the inconvenience and speed in which services can be availed. The document management systems market is expected to grow from USD 3.59 Billion in 2017 to USD 6.78 Billion by 2023. Source (Ref 7) By 2022, the global courier market is expected to generate some 248 billion euros in revenue. Source (Ref 8)
• As per industry research, a large percentage of people exaggerate or misrepresent facts on their CV’s about their professional qualifications and experience. Corporates spend millions of dollars on recruitment annually, roughly 30% of which is spent on identity and background verification. Educational Institutions need to constantly verify credentials
multiple times for the same person and occupation.
The Employment Screening Services market is expected to grow to US$ 5.46 billion by 2025 from US$ 3.74 billion in 2016.Source (Ref 5)

With the internet now playing an integral and indispensable role in almost all factors deciding how we live our lives, starting right from our education to our employment, it is of paramount importance to have secure digital identities which are easily verifiable, as also to be able to authenticate
and validate data and documents shared digitally by us with other entities and people. This in turn, nurtures an environment of trust and reputation in the entire work sphere. It lays more onus and ownership on the data-owner for protection against identity theft and subsequent misuse. Consequently, it leads to a new era in the digital age where digital personas and identities can be trusted and verified and digitally shared data and documents can be endorsed as authentic by intelligent systems without the need of human interventions and/or intermediaries in between.
