Blockchain and Identity
Personal Identity on the Blockchain? What if...
you had a portable, secure, globally available repository or store of your unique personal data available in a blockchain? You could have all of your health records or driving history available instantly to hand on to third parties. You might hand over your health records to a new doctor or to obtain a life insurance quote. Or your driving history to an airport car rental counter to obtain a discount.
Your personal data store might also have your biometric data this giving you the ability to approve any time it is you, before someone, and that the data contained in the blockchain is yours. Source: page 23, "Blockchain Masterclass", - by Professor Michael Mainelli, Z/Yen Group
