VIDEO – Liquid Avatar $LQID Part Of Consultations Around Ontario Plan For Digital ID By End Of 2021

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 5:40 PM on Monday, September 13th, 2021

12 months ago investors couldn’t be blamed if they found it hard to grasp the genius and foresight of Liquid Avatar $LQID $LQAVF ….. the easiest way to describe the company was as a blockchain platform allowing people to manage & profit from their digital identity, which became a real need once global laws started being enacted to prevent the likes of Facebook from every abusing our private information again.

It sounded great … and definitely sounded like something valuable 3-4 years into the future … but then the signs started showing up that painted an accelerating picture that would put LQID at the forefront of digital identity.

1.  In March of this year, Google validated the $LQID business model with this stunning announcement:

 Google announces major shift away from precision-targeting of ads based on everything you do on the interne

  • Google believes these types of tracking methods don’t “meet rising consumer expectations for privacy, nor will they stand up to rapidly evolving regulatory restrictions, and therefore aren’t a sustainable long term investment.
  • Google is experimenting with tools in its Privacy Sandbox that are designed to allow advertising to continue to work on the web but in a less privacy-encroaching way.
  • “Keeping the internet open and accessible for everyone requires all of us to do more to protect privacy — and that means an end to not only third-party cookies, but also any technology used for tracking individual people as they browse the web,” David Temkin, Google’s director of product management for ads privacy and trust,

 What is the potential outcome of this major shift by Google?

  “Google’s decision could upend the ad industry, which has relied on these types of tracking tools”  

Now the data privacy and monetization game is underway with LQID sitting in a great position within the industry and the dominant position within the small cap world.  

2.  In May of this year, The Ontario government released its digital identity strategy outlining ways in which it plans to harness the potential of the digital economy and better utilize data. Included in the plan are tangible commitments.

Then came the news all Liquid Avatar investors were waiting for: 

Ontario Releases Technology and Standards for Digital Identity which includes: 

  • the creation of a new data authority;
  • the introduction of a new government-issued digital ID that lets people prove who they are both online and in person

ENTER LIQUID AVATAR

Enter $LQID whose Liquid Avatar Verifiable Credentials Ecosystem (LAVCE) is being built to support all participants in a digital credential ecosystem, including the Holder, Issuer and Verifier, using state-of-the-art blockchain and open standards technologies – initially as a node on the Indicio Network.  More than just a good idea, $LQID issued a press release announcing the following:

“Ontario is one of the first jurisdictions in North America to announce that it will issue and enable digital credentials – and it has been a great experience working with the government on this both directly and through our role in membership organizations like the Trust Over IP Foundation”

AND

“Liquid Avatar Technologies has been a part of the ongoing consultations around the province’s plan to introduce a digital identification credential by the end of 2021”

Make no mistake about it.  This is a simply massive paradigm shift and $LQID isn’t going to tackle this on its own.  The Company is a voting and steering committee member of the Trust over IP Foundation, founding and steering committee member of Cardea, a Linux Foundation Public Health project, member of the Good Health Pass collaborative, ID2020, DIACC, The Linux Foundation and a founding member of the Lumedic Exchange.

Suddenly it is getting easy to see the genius of Liquid Avatar.

Watch this great interview with CEO David Lucatch.

12 months ago investors couldn’t be blamed if they found it hard to grasp the genius and foresight of Liquid Avatar $LQID $LQAVF ….. the easiest way to describe the company was as a blockchain platform allowing people to manage & profit from their digital identity, which became a real need once global laws started being enacted to prevent the likes of Facebook from every abusing our private information again.

THEN CAME COVID-19 TEST AND VACCINATION CREDENTIALS 

Both of these happened BEFORE governments around the world started announcing “Vaccine Passports” that would require people to prove their vaccinations prior to accessing some of the biggest parts of society.  But with the Quebec system already getting hacked before it started, the government initiatives are easier said than done.

12 months later and it is now getting easy to see the genius of Liquid Avatar.

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:01 PM on Wednesday, August 18th, 2021

Liquid Avatar Technologies (LQID: CSE) (LQAVF: OTCQB) is a global blockchain, personal identity & Fintech solutions company specializing in empowering individuals to manage, control and generate value from their biometrically-verified Self Sovereign Identity (“SSI”) through its Liquid Avatar platform (www.liquidavatar.com)

GENERALLY – Liquid Avatar Turns The Problem Of Data Privacy Into A Profit For Individuals, While Providing Big Businesses With New & Compliant Business Models.

SPECIFICALLY – Liquid Avatar Specializes In 

  • Continuous Online Identity Verification
  • Personal Identity Management
  • Personal Data Monetization.

The LAVCE (Liquid Avatar Credentials Ecosystem) currently supports verifiable credentials by creating a Trust Triangle between the Issuer of a credential, such as a government, health provider, workplace or school, the credential Holder (the data subject), and the Verifier (receiver of data) that is working to validate each unique data transaction. Far more secure and reliable than paper-based credentials, contract tracing forms, and traditional apps, the LAVCE and verifiable credentials can effectively reduce or eliminate fraud as all functions are supported by cryptographic blockchain solutions using the Indicio Network , the premier enterprise blockchain network for identity.

David Lucatch, CEO says it best, “Quick and easy verification for vaccine status with robust protection against fraudulent issuance is just one of many of the LAVCE’s important applications, Our communities just started opening up and it’d be a potential economic disaster if we had to collectively shut down again. We believe that it’s not enough to just say that you’re vaccinated or tested, we need a seamless, non-invasive, and privacy-respecting method for organizations to verify that individuals are immunized so that they can safely access their services…”

VIDEO – Liquid Avatar $LQID Digital ID and Monetization Gets Huge Boost From Joining Linux Global Public Health Project $MOS.ca $MOGO.ca $CTZ.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:49 AM on Thursday, June 10th, 2021

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

More than just lip service, $LQID has made some major announcements, including joining the Trust Over IP Foundation, which includes over 170 members including IBM, Mastercard, Accenture and many other global leaders who are defining a complete architecture for Internet-scale digital trust.

Does that sound like a mouthful?  Yeah, it does.  But all you have to really understand for now is that digital ID, privacy and monetization is going to become a reality in the very near future.  Government regulations are enforcing it.  Consumers are demanding it and $LQID is delivering it at such an advanced scale that the Trust Over IP Foundation provided them with a strategic role as a Steering Member.

If that wasn’t enough proof for you, Google  validated the $LQID business model with this stunning announcement at the beginning of March: 

 Google announces major shift away from precision-targeting of ads based on everything you do on the internet

  • Google believes these types of tracking methods don’t “meet rising consumer expectations for privacy, nor will they stand up to rapidly evolving regulatory restrictions, and therefore aren’t a sustainable long term investment.”

 What is the potential outcome of this major shift by Google?

  “Google’s decision could upend the ad industry, which has relied on these types of tracking tools”  

Now the data privacy and monetization game is underway with LQID sitting in a great position within the industry and the dominant position within the small cap world.  

That dominant position got even stronger when $LQID announced Liquid Avatar Congratulates the Ontario Government on the Release of its Digital Strategy  

WHY IS THIS SO IMPORTANT?

If consumers are going to switch to Liquid Avatar to protect and monetize their identity, the switch to Digital ID by Canada’s biggest Province is simply a monster catalyst:  The Ontario government strategy outlines ways in which it plans to harness the potential of the digital economy and better utilize data. Included in the plan are tangible commitments such as: 

  • the creation of a new data authority; 
  • a new digital artificial intelligence (AI) framework to guide responsible use of AI; and 
  • the introduction of a new government-issued digital ID that lets people prove who they are online.

Today, $LQID’s dominant position grew even stronger with the announcement Liquid Avatar Joins Linux Foundation Public Health Cardea Project. Why is this initiative so important?

Cardea is a complete ecosystem that can be used by public health authorities, governments, organizations, and industries to enable people to maintain their privacy while holding and using an easily verifiable, trustworthy, unalterable proof of a health test or vaccination.

One of the first projects to provide the related technology and guidance for implementation of the recently announced Global COVID Certificate Network (GCCN), also from Linux Foundation Public Health, Cardea helps facilitate the safe and free movement of individuals globally during the COVID pandemic.

  • Announced as of April 30, 2021, its unaudited net asset value per share was $1.22
  • Announcement is made based on ThreeD’s newly established practice of releasing NAV on a monthly basis as part of the Company’s ongoing response to shareholder interest in receiving periodic information

TORONTO, May 17, 2021 — ThreeD Capital Inc. (“ThreeD” or the “Company”) (CSE:IDK / OTCQB:IDKFF) a Canadian-based venture capital firm focused on opportunistic investments in companies in the junior resources and disruptive technologies sectors, announces that at April 30, 2021, its unaudited net asset value per share (“NAV”) was $1.22.

This announcement is made based on ThreeD’s newly established practice of releasing NAV on a monthly basis as part of the Company’s ongoing response to shareholder interest in receiving periodic information. NAV is calculated based on unaudited month-end financial information.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

This press release contains references to NAV or “net asset value per share” which is a non-GAAP financial measure. NAV is calculated as the value of total assets less the value of total liabilities divided by the total number of common shares outstanding as at a specific date. The term NAV does not have any standardized meaning according to GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. There is no comparable GAAP financial measure presented in ThreeD’s consolidated financial statements and thus no applicable quantitative reconciliation for such non-GAAP financial measure. The Company believes that the measure provides information useful to its shareholders in understanding the Company’s performance, and may assist in the evaluation of the Company’s business relative to that of its peers. This data is furnished to provide additional information and does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP. Accordingly, it should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, and is not necessarily indicative of other metrics presented in accordance with GAAP. Existing NAV of the Company is not necessarily predictive of the Company’s future performance or the NAV of the Company as at any future date.
