The UAE VERIFY blockchain enabled digital platform enables instant verification of any user’s digital Trusted Document. A Digital Trusted Document on the VERIFY platform is a document issued by VERIFY Partners , where its data is digested into a hash and recorded on the Blockchain. This generates a footprint that can always be validated by VERIFY. It verifies the authenticity, integrity and validity of the document from the official source.
In a twitter video the UAE TDRA announced the launch. The VERIFY digital trusted document platform currently has nine live partners, 19 digital trusted document types with 1,172,286 digital trusted documents issued and 14, 663 digital trusted documents verified.
