Hypothetical questioning now. Would it be possible to take bio metrics of babies as they are born. Finger prints and Retinal scans and create an anonymous ID on the network. If the network knows they are a real person and the information is scanned in by trusted parties then we could do a lot with that unique id. Voting rights, benefit payments, community payment systems, pay the contributor.
The person scanning in the data does not need to know who they are. It could be done anonymously.
Be great to hear peoples ideas on how this would technically be implemented. Would be a great little app to build as an experiment. It would be great if a small community trialed a system like this.
I currently cant think of a way of doing this without a centralized body but I don’t think that is necessarily a problem as the nature of the network promotes anonymity. Obviously a central body could double collect data by taking images and corrupting but there would probably be a way around that with using a decentralized approach to the biometric registering.
