Ethiopia's new national identification system may be based on the Cardano. This would be the result of the information posted on the official profile of the Minister of Peace of this country on social media.
The Ministry of Peace provided information on the national system of citizen identification
The post posted by the Ethiopian Peace Minister on his Facebook profile echoed loudly. It was suspected that the new national identification system for Ethiopia could be based on Cardano, with which the country has been in talks for some time. The first operational test of the new national citizen identification system was announced via social media.
The national system of identification of citizens in Ethiopia
The new system implemented in Ethiopia is an electronic ID system. It was created so that every citizen and resident of the country could be reliably identified. As reported by the Ethiopian Ministry of Peace, it has passed the first degree pre-implementation test, but no technical details have been disclosed. It can be assumed that the most important personal data of citizens, such as name and surname, date of birth, sex, citizenship and address, were entered into the system. In addition, the new ID card also consists of biometric data such as a photo, fingerprints and a scan of the iris of the eye. In addition, the digital biometric system will counteract various types of fraud.
Cardano in Ethiopia
It is no secret that representatives of Cardano have made several agreements with the government representatives of Ethiopia. At the same time, the company's founder, Charles Hoskinson, has been announcing for some time that an important event will be announced soon. In addition, John O'Connor, director of Cardano's African operations, recently announced that the contract with the Ethiopian government is at its final stage. However, it has not been officially confirmed whether it is a new digital identity system.
