Adding this capability along with our algorithmic trading bots will make Crix a must-use tool for any crypto trader.”
Yoti’s Future Tech lead Thom White, said “It’s great to be working with Crix to make it faster and safer for individuals to get trading. Crix share our passion for innovation and they’ll be leveraging Yoti to provide a simple, private and secure way for people to prove their identity.”
Yoti provides global coverage for businesses, who can integrate with Yoti’s identity platform via their suite of SDKs in 2-4 hours or in minutes using Yoti’s plugins built for WordPress, Joomla and Drupal.
Individuals can prove their identity in seconds using the free Yoti app, without having to rely on paper documents. Available for Apple and Android phones, Yoti transforms an individual’s ID document and biometrics into a secure digital identity in less than five minutes.
Yoti uses 256-bit encryption to secure user details and puts individuals in control of their data. With Yoti, the user has to give consent before their details are shared. They also know exactly what details they are sharing and who they are sharing them with. Yoti gives people more control over their personal data by allowing them to share specific identity attributes (i.e. just their name or 18+) without disclosing their full identity, helping to protect them from the ever-growing risk of identity fraud.
