  • The Liquid Avatar platform allows for the management and control of digital identity as well as personal and private data and is available to consumers at no cost

TORONTO, CANADA / July 23, 2020 / KABN Systems NA Holdings Corp. (CSE:KABN) (the “Company” or “KABN” or “KABN North America“), a Canadian Fintech company that specializes in continuous online identity verification, management and monetization in Canada and the US, is pleased to announce that on Saturday, July 25 at 5 pm Pacific / 8 pm Eastern, in conjunction with Apex Comics group CEO and Founder, Mariano Nicieza, KABN will be presenting a virtual discussion and overview of the Liquid Avatar platform (www.liquidavatar.com) at Comic-Con @ Home for comic book, fantasy, anime, manga and gaming fans worldwide. The event can be viewed at: https://comiccon2020.sched.com/event/d4zK/apex-comics-publishing-group-2020-2021-exclusive-previews. The Liquid Avatar platform allows for the management and control of digital identity as well as personal and private data and is available to consumers at no cost.

This event also begins the launch of Liquid Avatar’s Open Call for the Artist community, allowing students, emerging artists, hobbyists and others to create and provide submissions for review, by a panel of experts, for feedback and potential inclusion into the Liquid Avatar Marketplace (“Marketplace”) coming later this summer. All approved Artists will have their own catalog presented in the Marketplace allowing them to showcase icons available for sale.

The Liquid Avatar Marketplace will offer users with a new type of Avatar experience in addition to their free icons that they can create in the platform’s Creative Studio. Liquid Avatar users will be able to acquire custom-designed and limited availability icons from leading pop culture, comic book, fantasy, manga, and contemporary Artists complete with an innovative digital authentication solution that has been traditionally managed as an on-site, personnel and location-based process. All Liquid Avatars acquired from the Marketplace will be supported with a unique Digital Certificate of Authenticity, allowing each custom icon to have its own Blockchain identifier that can be transferred from one user to another.

“The reaction from the professional Artist and Creator community has been outstanding and we’ve already received submissions of some great icons for the Liquid Avatar Marketplace,” said Mariano Nicieza, CEO and Founder Apex Comics Group. “By opening the program to the overall market and allowing other talented Artists to come forward and participate and create icons, I believe, will further enhance the opportunities for Liquid Avatar.”

Liquid Avatar has begun its North American launch program to early adopters and welcomes the public to request an invitation at: https://liquidavatar.com/liquid-avatar-early-adopter/

When the Facebook data privacy scandal broke out, the world woke up to just how badly our individual data was being traded, used and most importantly, the amount of profit being generated by major corporations at our expense.

This led to the enactment of the biggest data privacy laws in history.  Specifically, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) out of Europe and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

Enter KABN.  The Company Turns The Problem Of Data Privacy Into A Profit For Individuals, While Providing Big Businesses With New & Compliant Business Models.

KABN’s timing could not be more perfect.

KABN’s presentation during the Apex panel will focus on this week’s earlier announcement launching Liquid Avatar’s Creator program which is bringing some of the world’s leading pop culture, comic book, fantasy, anime, manga and other iconic Artists together to create Illustrator and Signature series Liquid Avatars. There is also an open call for emerging Artists to join these programs and sell one of a kind, digital series and limited runs of custom Liquid Avatars. All custom Liquid Avatars will be available in the Liquid Avatar Marketplace launching in Q3 (www.liquidavatarmarketplace.com). A select group of emerging Artists will also be commissioned to create new, free Liquid Avatar icons available in the program’s Creator Studio.

Liquid Avatars are high quality digital icons for personal or business use that emulate a user’s digital “wallet” and “keyring” allowing them to manage and control their digital identity, credentials, and valuables. Powered by KABN ID with its biometrics, including facial recognition and other security features, Liquid Avatars can be shared with 3rd parties on a permission basis to verify identity without exposing any sensitive data.

“San Diego Comic-Con is a perfect place to showcase Liquid Avatars and we want to support the growing number of young, emerging artists and help them kickstart their career through the creation of custom Liquid Avatar icons,” said Ben Kessler, CEO. “Our Liquid Avatar program is positioned to give people a wide range of choices on how they want to digitally present themselves as well as manage and control their digital identity, private and public data. Embracing the professional and emerging Artist community will provide unique opportunities to showcase their work while creating new sources of revenue for themselves and KABN.”

Liquid Avatar is developing custom icons for online groups, events and conferences to create incentives for participation. Liquid Avatar also has other gamification features like badges to create recognition and rewards for attendance and participation.

KABN believes that ownership of identity is a basic human right and individuals should be the primary beneficiary of any use of their identity.

  • Announced that it’s Liquid Avatar platform (www.liquidavatar.com) has launched its Creator program together with leading pop-culture, comic book, manga, anime and other iconic artists to design and develop a continuous series of digital icons that consumers can acquire to display and share with their Liquid Avatar
  • Liquid Avatars are high quality digital icons for personal or business use, that emulate a user’s digital “wallet” and “keyring” allowing them to manage and control their digital identity, credentials and valuables

Toronto, Ontario–(June 23, 2020) – KABN Systems NA Holdings Corp. (CSE: KABN) (the “Company” or “KABN” or “KABN North America“), a Canadian Fintech company that specializes in continuous online identity verification, management and monetization, is pleased to announce that it’s Liquid Avatar platform (www.liquidavatar.com) has launched its Creator program together with leading pop-culture, comic book, manga, anime and other iconic artists to design and develop a continuous series of digital icons that consumers can acquire to display and share with their Liquid Avatar.

Liquid Avatars are high quality digital icons for personal or business use, that emulate a user’s digital “wallet” and “keyring” allowing them to manage and control their digital identity, credentials and valuables. Powered by KABN ID with its biometrics, including facial recognition and other security features, Liquid Avatars can be shared with 3rd parties on a permission basis to verify identity without exposing any sensitive data. There is no cost for a consumer to create or manage their Liquid Avatar and use the platform.

With the evolving macroenvironment driving an increased amount of time spent online, KABN believes that digital identity will become more important as users look to work, play, educate, game and shop virtually and will need to protect, manage and control the use of their digital identity.

The Liquid Avatar Creator program will feature original and licensed Illustrator and Signature Series digital icons which will be available as one of a kind, limited edition or collectable set from legendary and emerging pop culture Artists for sale in the Liquid Avatar Marketplace (www.liquidavatarmarketplace.com), (coming Q3 2020).

Each Illustrator and Signature Series Liquid Avatar will also be supported by a Digital Certificate of Authenticity (“DCA”), based on blockchain technology developed by the KABN Network. DCA’s allow for the issuance, recording, management and transfer of digital assets using IBM’s Hyperledger Fabric.

To support the development and launch of the Creator program, provide Art Direction, and liaise with Artists and the industry, KABN has partnered with 30+ year industry veteran, Mariano Nicieza. Mariano is President and Publisher of Apex Comics Group, Inc., writer and Executive Producer of the award-winning digital comic series, William Shatner’s War Chronicles, and the illustrator of the award-winning graphic novel, Stan Lee’s GOD Woke. He has worked in writing, illustration, design, and art direction in the digital and print industry for Marvel Entertainment, Disney, Malibu, Fleer, Paramount, and Panasonic. At Marvel, he held positions as Special Projects Editor and Senior Art Director. Mariano has a BA in Art from Rutgers University, an MA in Illustration from Syracuse University, and an MFA in Illustration from Hartford University.

“We are excited to have Mariano on board to better engage with the Artist community. Companies like Epic Games that have launched free-to-play games like Fortnite, have generated over $2 Billion a year in online revenue with much of that coming from art-based cosmetic skins and other digital items,” said Ben Kessler, CEO. “Our Liquid Avatar program is positioned to give people a wide range of choices on how they want to digitally present themselves and the involvement of the professional Artist community is going to provide unique opportunities to personalize their online presence while creating new sources of revenue for KABN.”

Liquid Avatar is developing event-driven icons for online groups, events and conference to create incentives for participation. Liquid Avatar also has other gamification features like badges to create recognition and rewards.

KABN believes that ownership of identity is a basic human right and individuals should be the primary beneficiary of any use of their identity.

  • Jurisdictions, including Canada, are looking at new regulations to ensure individuals own their online identity
  • The company’s solution replicates your wallet and keys in the digital world, using unique avatars and biometrics to make identity verification, service access, and payment simple and secure
  • KABN’s Liquid Avatar is set to go live this summer

Proving your identity and having secure access to facilities and vehicles in the real world is relatively straightforward. Most Canadian adults carry a wallet with a driver’s licence and other identification, plus a set of keys that gain them access to their home, vehicles, and workplace.

Online, it hasn’t been that simple. Access to services and ‘facilities’ consists of fragmented processes and systems that are often onerous and vulnerable to fraud. Managing your identity and gaining access to services digitally also means keeping track of dozens of logins and passwords—and securing them in an ad hoc manner. This highlights that proving your identity has become a laborious process, often repeated numerous times to make a transaction. At the same time, companies are building digital profiles of you and selling what they learn to advertisers for their own profit.

Recognizing that this evolving situation needs attention as online life continues to expand, an increasing number of jurisdictions are implementing regulations to enhance personal privacy and data control. Several, including Canada, are considering new rules making it clear that an individual’s identity belongs to them, and them alone, and cannot be used by corporations for profit without explicit permission.


“When you leave the house, you carry a set of keys and a wallet with your identification. Liquid Avatar creates a unique digital image that emulates that digitally.”

— Ben Kessler, CEO, KABN Systems NA Holdings Corp.


Making online ID verification simple and secure

KABN Systems NA Holding Corp. (CSE: KABN) is an emerging Canadian digital identity provider that has set out to help people navigate these choppy waters. The company has created an integrated suite of digital identity, financial and loyalty services, built on KABN ID, an “Always On,” biometrically-based, privacy-compliant validation and verification platform that allows users to continuously and confidently prove themselves to the online community, exchanges and other services.

On that technology foundation, KABN is launching Liquid Avatar, a consumer-oriented service where users will create an account based around a unique avatar through which they can conduct all online activities—from seeing a medical practitioner to making secure online purchases. Expected to launch this summer, Liquid Avatar will emulate everything a wallet and keys do in the real world, authenticating user identity through biometrics to ensure security.

“We’ve built an ecosystem for users to create, verify, and manage a digital wallet and keyring that emulates what they do in the real world,” says KABN’s CEO, Ben Kessler. “When you leave the house, you carry a set of keys and a wallet with your identification. Liquid Avatar creates a unique digital image that emulates that digitally.” Using a biometric, such as your face, to identify yourself is crucial in digital security.

KABN’s core philosophy: Individuals should own and profit from their identity

KABN follows a dual philosophy that proving your identity online should be as easy as it is in person and that an individual’s digital ID is important and should be entirely owned by them. Just as people do in the real world, individuals should be able to profit from that identity by being able to take advantage of deals and offers from businesses they’re already interested in.   

“Digital identity is probably, outside of time, our most valuable asset,” Kessler explains. “It allows us to prove we are an individual and gives us access to our banking, education, and other services. It makes you who you are. I have rights as an individual, and as an individual, I need to own things that are being done for, with, and about me.”

With KABN ID as the verification tool and Liquid Avatar being used as the character to represent you, clients can expect faster, more effective, and cost-efficient service compared to traditional, transactional anti-money laundering or “Know your Customer” services. This all works to reduce time, resources, and friction when onboarding users.

KABN can also provide a fully comprehensive profile for any lawful request without revealing personally identifiable information (PII). For the company customers, KABN ID offers a greater level of protection for your identity, as businesses only receive access to your identity marker connected to your online wallet or another registry, never passing any personally identifiable information to unknown third parties.

Option of opting in for promotions tailored to individual interests

One key aspect of KABN ID is that the individual controls their data; it is never sold, rented, or even revealed to businesses offering promotions. It’s up to the individual to opt into the online service they want.

Users will get offers from companies interested in advertising special deals to targeted lists. Taking online content as an example, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, or TikTok, KABN can strike a deal with advertisers to provide a deal to anyone who has identified that they consume content online. Users on that list would get a notice in their KABN profile of this deal—maybe for a discount on Disney+ if users sign up for the whole year. The same principle could apply to a restaurant, movie theatre, or club. The business gets the opportunity to market themselves in a focused manner to a list of people who have expressed interest in their types of service or product, and the individuals benefit from the deals being offered without having to expose any of their personal information. 

KABN’s role is to match offers with users, but only where users are interested. They’re not allowing companies access to their lists and incentives but will deliver incentives and deals to users who may be interested. In this way, the retailer would not even have the names or email addresses for anyone KABN provides with the offer, only when the offer is accepted by the consumer would a more direct contact be made between the consumer and retailer.

“The key is if I’m constantly doing stuff online and being part of something, I may find I have an affinity towards things,” Kessler notes. “We can offer services that complement your lifestyle and needs by using data science. It’s all about how we create a symbiotic relationship with our customers and give them access to deals they might otherwise not be able to get.”

Individuals’ control of their own personal data online is a right that has been trampled on in recent years with huge companies gathering information about individuals and selling it to advertisers (think of Facebook’s privacy scandal involving Cambridge Analytica a few years back). Individuals might not be actively aware that this is happening, but information is being gathered about anyone online every time they surf the Internet, use social media or enable location services on their phone.  Rather than providing the three-figure code on the back of a card when paying online, KABN wants to include more biometrics for security. 

Privacy and data protection regulations—including those in Canada—are catching up to the reality, and increasingly stating that users should be able to own their data, and that it cannot be used without their permission.

“Consumers have rights, as human beings, to own and control their data,” Kessler explains. “All those things we do in the conventional world will eventually evolve into the online world.”

Take the California Consumer Privacy Act, for example, and how it handles peoples’ privacy. The act allows “Any California consumer to demand to see all the information a company has saved on them, as well as a full list of all the third parties that data is shared with. In addition, the California law allows consumers to sue companies if the privacy guidelines are violated, even if there is no breach.”

In Canada, organizations covered by the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) â€œMust generally obtain an individual’s consent when they collect, use or disclose that individual’s personal information. People have the right to access their personal information held by an organization. They also have the right to challenge its accuracy. All businesses that operate in Canada and handle personal information that crosses provincial or national borders are subject to PIPEDA.”

As these laws extend to more parts of the world, the nature of online activity, such as shopping, education and even using social media, will fundamentally change for the better.

KABN’s challenge and opportunity are to come into that new world with a service that fills the void left by the changes. Liquid Avatar does that by giving the individual control over their online identification. Rather than cookies on their computer passing along information, the user can set up conditions for sharing information. Some information will be widely available, say someone’s name. Other information will only be given to designated providers—perhaps an education provider that needs to verify your identity before you take an online exam or a retailer who needs payment information.

Users can set up terms for who can access their identity verification, banking information, credit card numbers, insurance numbers, vehicle registration, etc. Any site they visit can be included such as banks, financial services, retailers, healthcare providers, schools, government services, education sites, entertainment, and more. It also allows you to manage access by friends and family, store contact information, and even your medical records.

It does everything your wallet and keys do in the real world.

Everything you want to know about Liquid Avatar

So, what exactly is a Liquid Avatar, how does it work and what’s the value behind it?

For starters, a Liquid Avatar is a high-quality, digital, image-based Personal Passport containing public and securely managed private information that a user can choose to share when they want and include only the information they want, just by sharing their image.

A simple way to think of a Liquid Avatar is to start with an Emoji in combination with a user’s public and permission-based, private authenticated data and amplified to a whole new level.

However, when designing Liquid Avatar, it was important to KABN’s principals that they not simply create a new process to replace outgoing online systems with something similar but create real value for individuals in a one-stop application for all their online activities.

Liquid Avatar is powered by KABN ID, providing users with a reusable, verified digital identity platform powered by blockchain-based technology and biometrics, ensuring that no two Avatar users are ever the same and also giving each user easy to use, complete and secure control over their image and connected information. KABN’s Liquid Avatar is a high quality, digital, image-based Personal Passport that contains public and securely managed private information.

Moreover, each individual’s online Liquid Avatar has a unique digital certificate, which can only be accessed by a combination of username, password, and biometrics such as a face, voice print or fingerprint.

Liquid Avatar makes it easier to prove that “you are you” when a user is online, potentially reducing the risk of identity theft. By storing information securely, outside of the user’s phone, tablet, computer, etc., and having biometric access and control, the user can decide who sees what information, and when. Once a user is in the Liquid Avatar, it automatically verifies their identity when they conduct an online transaction, whether borrowing a book at an online library, logging in to take an exam, buying something, or transferring funds.

The digital certificate acts as a unique key online that institutions and businesses can recognize. However, businesses will need to be involved with KABN’s services in order to use the digital certificates and methods of identification. Scammers cannot replicate the key or the lock it fits on the other end. If your system detects the lack of a proper receipt by the site you are on, it can shut down the transaction.

The use of biometrics is increasingly important with e-commerce. For example, rather than providing the three-digit security code on the back of a card when paying online, which only proves you possess the plastic card, adding biometrics and a digital certificate to validate who a user is can potentially reduce fraud significantly.

“We have created a system for people to verify, manage, and prioritize their public and private information,” Kessler says.

“It is all opt-in,” he adds. “The era of private data abuse is over.”

Another key to making the new service practical for people’s real needs was to provide the ability to add one or more trusted individuals who could access your profile to gather information or make changes if needed. That person could be a spouse, a parent, or a child. For example, in an emergency, they can log in and ‘break the glass’ to access your information, perhaps to provide it to medical practitioners in an ER, or, to perhaps take down your social media accounts after death. They essentially act the same as a power of attorney in the physical world.

“Digital identity is addressable to 100 percent of the market and we built Liquid Avatar to tap into that market,” Kessler notes.

$KABN.ca Systems NA – The Company that’s Protecting Identity as YOUR Basic Human Right

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 10:01 AM on Thursday, June 11th, 2020
This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is image-3.png

While investing in small cap companies comes with certain inherent risks, it’s not high stakes, low chance gambling. In fact, practically every billion-dollar large cap company started off as a penny stock.

For the savvy retail investor or day trader, they know full well that emerging financial technology-based companies have, for the past two decades-plus, offered the highest returns with relatively low risk mitigation…even despite the dot com bubble crash of the early 2000’s.

Today, a lot of smart money is funneling into forward-thinking companies that are fulfilling an immediate need to provide real world solutions to identity fraud and creating value through data validation.

Now, an innovative, Toronto-based company is making real things happen to protect consumers, companies, and capital.

KABN (pronounced ‘Cabin’) Systems NA (CSE:KABN, Forum) is already on the forefront of developing cutting-edge blockchain-supported and biometric customized identity solutions software. Bear in mind, this fintech company is not in conflict or cooperation with companies trying to use your data. They are the protectors of your data. Here’s how they do it.

Their world-class suite of products and services work seamlessly across all channels and, most importantly, all demographic groups. Simply put, KABN’s software apps and digital banking processes can work for everyone.

KABN works differently than other companies in this space. How? They offer a unique, comprehensive, and integrated suite of identity, financial, and loyalty services.

Here’s the starting lineup. Liquid Avatar – powered by KABN ID – provides an ‘Always On’, biometrically-based, privacy-compliant, identity validation and verification platform which enables users to continuously and confidently prove themselves to the online community, exchanges, and other services. KABN ID is the backbone to its financial, loyalty, and engagement solutions including the KABN Prepaid Card program and KABN KASH – an innovative cash-back program where users are connected to online merchants for savings when they shop.

Why Digital Identity Matters

Identity is what makes people unique, but since the inception of the internet, digital identity has often been an afterthought. With today’s acceleration of online commerce, education, healthcare, government, and other services tailored to the individual, digital identity and the data that surrounds it is online “gold”. KABN says they believe that ownership of identity is a “basic human right and individuals should be the primary beneficiary of any use of their identity.” This is what sets KABN apart.

In the conventional world, it’s easy to prove who you are either by visual or traditional identity verification. It’s a process that most people are accustomed to following.

In today’s digital world, it’s not that easy to prove “you are you”. Identity verification is managed on a site-by-site basis and users are often required to deliver sensitive documents to unknown third parties, potentially reducing the value of their identity and increasingly exposing themselves to the risk of identity fraud.“KABN believes that ownership of identity is a basic human right and individuals should be the primary beneficiary of any use of their identity.”Digital Identity “Friction”

In the digital data world, it’s all about the pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters and the
ability to passively and actively generate revenues through everyday consumer activities. The Company says that, at present, the digital identity space has not satisfactorily addressed both the consumer and commercial stakeholder needs. Both are vital to consider, and these include:

Consumer Identity Needs…

  • to make ID verification reusable
  • to put me in control of my private data
  • to help me manage my public data
  • to reduce identity fraud

Commercial Identity Needs…

  • to reduce friction of screening consumer users
  • to simplify user verification
  • to streamline compliance resources
  • to manage user Personally Identifiable Information (PII) efficiently

KABN’s Suite of Solutions: KABN ID, Liquid Avatar, the KABN Prepaid Visa card, and KABN KASH.

KABN ID

KABN ID is a proprietary, blockchain, and biometrically-based digital identity verification platform for both commercial clients and consumers users. KABN ID is a complete shift in thinking for identity validation as KABN ID provides a reusable, bank-grade identity verification for the individual user, at no cost to the consumer.

KABN ID is a global 24/7/365 verified online ID that is controlled by the client. The online identity service that is regulatory compliant, blockchain and biometrically-based, and is available at no cost to the consumer.

Users own and control the use of their verified identification, no personally identifiable information is ever transferred without authorization, and it provides organizations with an “Always On” KYC / AML (Know Your Customer / Anti Money Laundering) validation and verification process.

Liquid Avatar

Data is indeed the new “gold”. As users are presented value offerings and other services based on their public data profiles and system generated data, KABN, in turn, offers information services that are delivered directly to the user. User data is never sold or rented and remains part of the KABN Network.

A Liquid Avatar is a multi-layered, visual technology icon or token that contains information that can be linked, authenticated, and shared. When you share a Liquid Avatar, you automatically attach public data that will allow permission-based private data to be authenticated.

Liquid Avatars include a Visual or Presentation Layer – Public Data Layer, Private Data Layer, and a Security and Authentication Layer.

KABN Prepaid Visa Card

As part of KABN’s commitment to providing its Customers with innovative, permission-based values, KABN is introducing its first financial services program, the KABN Prepaid Visa card and Mobile Banking Wallet program that supports both digital and traditional currencies.

KABN Prepaid Visa cardholders will be able to spend in-store, online, and access ATMs globally, wherever Visa is accepted.

KABN Card Features include:

  • a digital currency-linked prepaid Visa card
  • a multiple currency banking wallet
  • KABN KASH cashback program and other innovative services

and, global access – anywhere that Visa is accepted worldwide.

KABN KASH

KABN KASH is a robust engagement portal which includes a cash-back program. Here users are able shop at some of North America’s top online merchants and receive cash back on their KABN Card. Customers will also receive updates on special offers and unique deals exclusive to KABN KASH.

KABN KASH Features include:

  • an exclusive customer portal
  • cashback rewards
  • special offers
  • exclusive opportunities & experiences
  • and instant savings alert messaging.

In the News: “KABN Systems to take over Torino Power Solutions”

Kabn Systems North America – a fintech company leveraging biometric ID verification – has signed an agreement with Torino Power Solutions to execute a reverse takeover (RT) as it prepares to launch a digital banking and financial services platform.

The platform will consist of continuous ID validation and verification processes. These include:

  • Liquid Avatar – powered by KABN ID – which is based on biometrics and blockchain
  • the KABN Prepaid Visa Card, which acts as a payment card and digital wallet for multi-currency transactions with digital or fiat currencies
  • and KABN KASH, a loyalty and customer engagement platform.

The technology is just not cool…it’s comprehensive.

From the Executive Team

In a lively and informative interview with Stockhouse Editorial, KABN’s Chief Executive Officer, Ben Kessler talked about a variety of timely Company happenings, including not only the experience but the innovative ideas they’re bringing to the digital identity management space. Ben Kessler commented:

“Our focus is on our three core strengths – Reach, a Unique Business Approach and Team. With our senior management team, I think the great thing we all bring is some extremely strong skillsets and experiences and we all see things, in some ways, slightly different. And that’s a good thing.”

Kessler also highlighted the three unique attributes that he believes will make KABN successful:

“First, our reach. It covers 100 percent of the addressable online market which is approximately 300 million people in North America, so we don’t have to go looking to provide a service to people who may not want it. Identity is becoming more important. Second, we have a unique business approach. We want to empower consumers to manage and control their identity and find ways to create value and opportunity from that identity. Our business is to empower constituents and commercial clients, as well. The third thing is, we’ve just got a simply outstanding team. We’ve all been doing this for a lot of years and in my career, I’ve never had a better crew of people that I’ve ever worked with. We’ve got a great team and advisors that are all uniquely focussed on succeeding.”

In Closing

There aren’t a lot of companies like KABN that offer a unique ground-floor investment opportunity in one of the most vital sectors of the New Economy – digital identity protection. The team says they’re excited and completely engaged in doing what’s best for investors, and it shows. Afterall, isn’t that what it’s all about? Bringing ‘value and opportunity’ to one of the most blue-sky digital global markets available today.
