Use Cases


Gravity allows anyone to create a self-sovereign, secure digital identity based on certified personal data. ID attributes can include biodata, education, health data, official identity documents or credit history. The data can be certified by peers or trusted third parties. We use blockchain technology to verify the authenticity of the certifications.

On one hand, our solution serves as a one-stop touch point to self-sovereign identity for our users. On the other hand, it allows NGOs, governments, financial services providers and other private sector entities to request rich, data augmented identity profiles from the end-users, enabling better and more personalized service delivery.

Digital wallets


for refugees, stateless populations and forcibly displaced persons

Digital wallets


for refugees, stateless populations and forcibly displaced persons

 
 

The Problem

Nowhere else is the need for valid and legal identification documents more pertinent than in the context of refugees, stateless populations and Forcibly Displaced Persons (FDPs). Fleeing their homes and communities often over the course of a single night, these individuals are gravely constrained upon their arrival at refugee camps and onto the territory of hosting states due to a lack of identification.

Not only does this inhibit such individuals from accessing services such as food rations, healthcare and education within refugee settlements, but it also results in obstacles to their long-term integration into the hosting states and/or states of destination. While existing systems of identification by aid organizations allow for rudimentary identification to take place, these systems are ad hoc and therefore of limited use as valid identification documents to other organizations.


 

Our Solution

Understanding the protracted nature of this problem, our ambition is the provision of digital wallets for refugees, stateless populations and FDPs with the aim of empowering these individuals by granting them access to valid identification (and other) documents at any time, wherever they are and for whichever purpose they desire. This allows individuals to create, maintain and share biodata, educational credentials, health information, employment history, etc. securely and easily from a one-stop touch point on their phones.


 
 

Our Mission

Our mission is twofold; firstly, to support, reinforce and strengthen existing identification protocols used by humanitarian aid organizations and NGOs through the reconciliation of the disparate array of documentation (concerning biodata, identification, educational, medical and financial information) pertaining to an individual in the form of a digital wallet accessible to the individual on the go. Secondly, to work in tandem with organizations who do not yet have functional identification protocols to build, from the ground up, a robust system for beneficiary identification.

In both these cases, our ambition is to widen the interoperability of both the Gravity ID and other concerned identification protocols by guaranteeing high Levels of Assurance, so that the attributes stored in the digital wallet are accepted by the widest range of organizations as possible as a valid means of identification and certification of credentials.

KYC as a service


for a seamless, secure and cheap SIM card registration

KYC as a service


for a seamless, secure and cheap SIM card registration

 
 

The Problem

For more than half a billion people in Africa, mobile operators are struggling with collecting and verifying Know-Your-Customer (KYC) information. This is even more problematic due to the fact that a majority of states in Sub-Saharan Africa have made SIM card registration mandatory for the activation of SIM cards, with stringent requirements regarding the accuracy of information needed for a valid KYC.

Those not in possession of ID cards, or in possession of ID cards with erroneous information, are thus denied access to SIM cards. This not only prevents them from using their mobile phones for communication but also from accessing other services such as mobile money. Given Africa's widely acknowledged Mobile Phone Revolution and the appetite for mobile money services, this situation could thwart the prospect for digital and financial inclusion on the continent.


 

Our Solution

We provide on-the- fly SIM card registration services to mobile operators through our Gravity-enabled KYC. Our solution allows for a faster, cheaper and more secure KYC which helps mobile operators meet their regulatory obligations while also allowing customers to perform their SIM card registration on-the-go.

Further, our protocol is accessible on any mobile phone, irrespective of the mobile operator or internet connectivity. We strengthen the accuracy of the data gathered by allowing individuals to ask others in her/his social network and community to verify certain ID attributes about themselves, renumerating accurate verifications through free airtime rewards.

How it works: On-the-go SIM card registration by Gravity


Our Mission

Our aim is to harness the momentum created by the Mobile Phone Revolution in Sub-Saharan Africa in order to accelerate financial and digital inclusion for people at the Bottom of the Pyramid by unlocking a fundamental value chain that starts with the simple activation of a SIM card.

Humanitarian aid


improving aid effectiveness by ensuring its delivery to the intended beneficiaries

Humanitarian aid


improving aid effectiveness by ensuring its delivery to the intended beneficiaries

The Problem

Aid effectiveness, both for development and humanitarian purposes, is being hindered due to the misallocation of cash and in-kind transfers as a result of corruption, lack of transparency of delivery channels, duplication of profiles and exclusion of beneficiaries.


 

Our Solution

In a context where aid distribution is increasingly being programmed through digital channels, we work with NGOs and aid agencies to ensure that the intended beneficiaries of their programs are actually the ones who receive cash and in-kind transfers by linking each transfer to a unique identifier corresponding to each beneficiary. This not only ensures reception of the transfer by its intended legitimate beneficiary, but also grants only the intended beneficiary or her/his guardian the power to access the transfer and/or all information pertaining to it.


 

Our Mission

We aspire to improve the traceability and delivery of extant aid distribution mechanisms in order to help NGOs and aid agencies better monitor, evaluate and hence improve service delivery towards their beneficiaries.
