Solution

A distributed ID solution can solve that problem.

We will present a business model and system for mass adoption to a few giant Japanese companies with which we are currently negotiating a project.

Problem

Businesses: Soaring Personal Information Security Costs

Consumers: limited portability of data to prove self and scope of proof

For the Enterprise Domain, Decentralized Identity Solution Implementation

Please describe your proposed solution.

1.In order to make this happen, it is necessary to advocate a new business model and involve various business stakeholder

In this regard, we have already involved a target company with several tens of thousands of employees.Due to the NDA, we cannot provide details, but here is a summary of the giant companies currently in business meetings.

<u>Printing and advertising companies and others</u>

・Consolidation of personal information management companies

<u>General education company</u>

・Overseas expansion of education services and improvement of portability of education records

<u>System development company</u>

・Utilization in the area of EC x tourism

2.Confirmation of compliance with the Personal Information Protection Law and governance design

As described in 1. above, since this is a new operational model for personal information, it is essential to confirm legal compliance. In addition, new governance rulemaking will be required to ensure smooth operation.

The case will be supervised by team member Kotaro Kong, an attorney with one of the largest law firms in Japan. He can also make policy recommendations to the government, so if there are flaws in the current law, we can include the option of amending the law.

3.After the model is proposed, a system is required to enable PoC implementation in a shorter period of time and at a lower cos

The details are as follows

・Different interaction VC schemas need to be set up among various stakeholders.

・The system needs to be a model that can be implemented as an add-on to an existing system using a SaaS model.

ProofSpace's solution is the best solution to solve these problems, and we will work with EKOIOS to localize it for Japan in this project.

ProofSpace has cooperated with us on a Japanese government project last year.

Why us

As described in 1~3, we have already made progress on some of the more difficult issues that we have identified as challenges. We have also selected services that we believe are optimal for the project and have formed a team. The companies participating in the project and the members of the team have excellent track records.

How impact

Even if only one of these companies were to take on the project, the impact would be extremely high.

They have hundreds to thousands of clients, including major corporations, and a strong presence there. The hurdles for participating in Verifier's rolls will be lowered.

In addition, by creating an example of this large-scale implementation, it can be used as a model for exporting to other countries, and it is also expected to be disseminated in the context of Data Free Flow with Trust, which Japan is leading at the G7.

How does your proposed solution address the challenge and what benefits will this bring to the Cardano ecosystem?

Through our past activities, we have begun to build a network with major companies, and we are in a situation where we can immediately enter into business negotiations with them.

With the distributed ID solution we are developing in this localized version, we aim to lower the barriers to the introduction of the SSI ecosystem and create use cases for AtalaPRISM in the enterprise.

After creating model cases, the company intends to link data with other countries and export the model to other countries.

In Japan, the Japanese government has made Web 3.0 a national policy, and in the field of distributed ID, the Government Digital Agency has launched the TrustedWeb project, which is attracting attention from major companies in the context of DFFT, the slogan of the G7.

Privacy Laws

When trying to build a new SSI ecosystem, there is a high possibility of running afoul of laws surrounding personal information. We will coordinate legal interpretations and judgments of validity with the lawyers on our team members and reflect them in our products.

If we cannot avoid such a situation, we will submit a proposal for the amendment of the law to the Diet members through DAO, to which we belong.

Cardano

We believe that Cardano will contribute to the expansion of the ecosystem based on Cardano by increasing its presence and transactions.

The process of building the SSI business model and forming a consortium involving actual companies will be accumulated.

How do you intend to measure the success of your project?

1.Launch of localized model in Japan

2.Number of companies that have adopted the project

3.Number of companies in business meeting

Please describe your plans to share the outputs and results of your project?

What are your plans to spread the project’s outputs over a reasonable timescale?

<u>For Community</u>

・Eastern Hemisphere Town Hall

・SNS

・Press Releases

<u>For Enterprise</u>

・Press Release

・BlockCahinEXPO (scheduled for October)

・Various events

How do you plan to use the results of the project for further R&D activities?

・We will use the results of the project as a PoC for companies that have new business opportunities, and accumulate knowledge of SSI's business model and governance model.

・We will continue to refine the service by conducting additional development when new specific issues arise.

・Use it as a model for discussions with new experts to accumulate knowledge.

What is your capability to deliver your project with high levels of trust and accountability?

<u>This project will be a joint project between "Infinect", "ProofSpace", and "ekoios".</u>

What are the main goals for the project and how will you validate if your approach is feasible?

Main Goals

1.Launch a Japanese localization model for ProofSpace products

2.Establishment of SSI business model, formation of consortiums in Japan, and creation of enterprise case studies

3.Collaboration projects between Japan and other countries, or exporting successful Japanese models to other countries

Verification Method

1.Confirmation of completion of product development

2.Monitoring of Infinect's business negotiations with Japanese companies and organization.

If your goals cannot be quantified numerically, please be sure to include a clear description of how you believe the goals of your project should be measured and considered.

The KGI for this project is the development of the solution, with the objective of completing its launch. On the other hand, the specific numerical targets for the project, including the project implementation in a large company, stakeholder involvement, consortium building, and governance framework building, are highly uncertain, so we decided to avoid setting them as KPIs. However, since it is inevitable to take such an approach toward implementation, we will submit a report on the transition as much as possible.

How you intend to implement your approach?

"ProofSpace" and "ekoios" will collaborate on the development of the system, which will be coordinated by Infinect. Infinect will play a central role in the development of the system, providing input on business negotiations with Japanese companies, defining requirements, and conducting marketing and lobbying.

How does the cost of the project represent value for money for the Cardano ecosystem?

It has the potential to dramatically increase the recognition and presence of Cardano and AtalaPRISM in the Japanese enterprise. In addition, the creation of a new business model is expected to bring its benefits on a global scale through exports to other countries.

Beyond that, we expect to see increased transaction volume, increased liquidity, and the development of smart contracts and add-ons for payment and financial services.
