Liquid Avatar Technologies successfully demonstrates complete, interoperable health data ecosystem
LAVCE platform enables people to share privacy-preserving proof of COVID-19 test and vaccination records across multiple systems
Toronto, Canada – September 9, 2021 – Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. (CSE: LQID / OTCQB:LQAVF / FRA:4T51) (“Liquid Avatar Technologies” or the “Company”), a global blockchain, digital identity, and fintech solutions company, announces that its ground-breaking Liquid Avatar Verifiable Credential Ecosystem (“LAVCE”) for sharing digital health information successfully works with other digital health credential systems based on the Linux Foundation Public Health Cardea project.
This interoperability means that LAVCE’s credentials for digital health information such as proof of a valid COVID-19 test, vaccine, and/or exemption can be used across multiple systems and platforms, thereby helping people to resume school, work, and travel in a way that increases public safety while preserving privacy and preventing fraud.
Liquid Avatar Technologies demonstrated LAVCE’s interoperability at a recent hackathon style event for companies participating in the Cardea community, seamlessly issuing, exchanging, and verifying health related data with other participating systems at the event. LAVCE’s successful demonstration illustrated the power of interoperable verifiable credentials as a way to transform how we share and trust digital health information.
The LAVCE platform can be integrated with healthcare facilities, testing labs, government agencies, schools, sports arenas, transportation, trade shows, and workplaces to confirm health status and assist efforts to reduce new outbreaks. The platform can also receive, verify, and issue credentials to other products and services that are compatible with Linux Foundation projects including Hyperledger Aries, Hyperledger Indy, and Cardea.
“We are thrilled to see interoperability among companies and solutions at the Cardea Interop-athon event. People will use digital health credentials if they deliver value across every facet of their lives and interoperability is a key driver of use and value,” said David Lucatch, CEO of Liquid Avatar Technologies. “Successful interoperability means that a blockchain-backed system to manage trusted digital information is a quickly scalable solution. It also means that we don’t end up getting trapped in siloed, proprietary systems that can’t talk to each other. That’s not the way to manage COVID-19 and it’s also not the way to manage the future of digital health information or various other verifiable credentials.”
LAVCE’s digital health credentials are based on global standards as Liquid Avatar Technologies is a member of the Good Health Pass Collaborative, and is supported by the Indicio Network, a global blockchain network for decentralized identity services, of which Liquid Avatar Technologies is a founding member.
Both Liquid Avatar Technologies and Indicio are founding and steering committee members of Cardea, a Linux Foundation Public Health initiative to promote secure, privacy-preserving sharing of health status data in an interoperable way.
To encourage future adoption, Liquid Avatar Technologies will soon offer a software development kit (SDK) for both iOS and Android that can be embedded in and power apps, corporate and government portals, and other solutions to make it possible for all types of organizations to support digital wallets and verifiable credentials easily and effectively.
The public hack-a-thon style event was held Thursday, September 9 with nearly a dozen other companies participating. The event was the first to be sponsored by Cardea to promote interoperability between services that offer verifiable credentials.
