  • Designing a Framework for Digital KYC Processes Built on Blockchain-Based Self-Sovereign Identity 2021-11-11 Vincent Schlatt, Johannes Sedlmeir, Simon Feulner, Nils Urbach

  • zkKYC: A solution concept for KYC without knowing your customer, leveraging self-sovereign identity and zero-knowledge proofs 2021-07-05 Pieter Pauwels

This approach breaks the traditional privacy vs. transparency trade-off and provides structured transparency, resulting in a net positive outcome for all parties involved.
