Fractal has announced that Polymath, a provider for issuance and management of security tokens on blockchain, will be integrated into their ID verification software product.
The partnership between Fractal and Polymath is aimed at facilitating a compliance-enabled infrastructure for the issuance and management of security tokens on the Polymesh blockchain network. This is expected to solve the problem of managing identity on the Polymesh blockchain when issuing and managing security tokens.
Polymath will leverage access to Fractal’s ID verification software with its institutional-grade permissioned blockchain network, Polymesh. Fractal ID will also adopt a KYC/AML process for every Polymesh user. Therefore, ensuring all members on the chain are verified and that all transactions are authorized by known entities.
The Polymesh blockchain platform has two layers of identity checks. The initial layer leads to the blockchain, and the next layer leads to a specific asset. This asset is usually managed by the issuer of the security tokens or by their agent. Reports state that Fractal’s ID software will power the first layer, while users will be able to choose between Fractal or an alternative KYC provider for the second layer.
It’s important to note that Fractal’s product was created in line with bank-level KYC/AML regulatory standards, as well as in compliance with GDPR. It also secures the protection of personal data. They have also processed over 65,000 KYC/AML addresses, which shows reputable industry experience in onboarding users.
Polymath’s Chief Product Officer, Thomas Borrel, spoke about how Polymesh makes use of its ID system to link every action to a single real-world ID while allowing users the opportunity for privacy and to separate their holdings over different digital representations of themselves.
He said, “This kind of identity framework is required to comply with securities regulations but is very difficult to manage on general-purpose blockchains. With Fractal ID powering the customer due diligence process that grants users access to the chain, we’re able to offer a promising solution to a significant industry issue.”
CEO and co-founder of Fractal, Julian Leitloff, added, “Our mission with Fractal ID is to enable trusted relationships between people and organizations across borders based on reliable and verifiable information. Compliance and convenience shouldn’t be trade-offs and we’re excited to be working alongside Polymath to solve challenges with managing identity on the blockchain in a scalable way for issuers, investors, and other market participants.”
