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.

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.

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…”

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.

The May Pang Gallery’s first NFT collection will feature legendary photographer Ken Davidoff.

Capitalizing on the response to her recently announced John Lennon’s “Lost Weekend” photographs, May Pang and McCartney Multimedia are working with a number of iconic artists and photographers to create an NFT gallery for the sale of visual art in the music and entertainment space. In the coming weeks and months, May Pang and Oasis will partner with some of the music industry and Hollywood’s most notable photographers and artists, starting with Ken Davidoff, to bring their work, including never released images, to the NFT market. A pre-sale list has been established at www.oasisdigitalstudios.com

Ken Davidoff has spent his whole life, since the early age of 4, immersed in art and by the time he was 8, he was a budding photographer. In 1966, at age 17 Ken was working part time as a professional photographer at his parent’s studio, the Davidoff Studio in Palm Beach, Florida. By 19, Ken got the opportunity to photograph The Miami Pop Festival with Jimi Hendrix. With this amazing opportunity under his belt, Ken was able to secure the position of official Photographer of the 1969 First Annual Music and Arts Festival of Palm Beach (The Palm Beach Pop Festival), a 3 Day Festival dubbed Woodstock South which closed with a performance by the Rolling Stones.

“Ken Davidoff’s photographs capture a moment in time that shaped the “baby boomer” generation. In partnership with Oasis, I am happy to feature his work at the May Pang Gallery,” commented May Pang, Curator – May Pang Gallery

Shooting legends like Elvis, Johnny Cash, Joni Mitchell, The Beach Boys, 38 Special, B.B. King, Dale Earnhardt, Harry Chapin, Rush, Loggins and Messina, Bob Segar, Johnny Winder and other iconic individuals and groups, Ken’s photographs portray historic images of the genesis of Rock n’ Roll.

Ken’s 55+ year professional career has focused on the art of the image, creating iconic stories behind the music and the photos. Some of his never-seen-before photographs will be available through the May Pang Gallery and Oasis Digital Studios as NFTs featuring, in Ken’s own words, the stories behind the images.

Working with my old family friend May Pang has brought extra Joy to my daily routine of gathering and helping curate iconic rock ‘n’ roll images, as the family grows to now bring classic rock photographer Ken Davidoff into the world of NFTs, and under the wing of the May Pang Gallery. Who knew a day job could be this much fun?said Ruth McCartney, Digital Diva, and founder of McCartney Multimedia.

ABOUT KEN DAVIDOFF

Ken Davidoff has been a professional photographer since 1966 working in his Father’s photography studio in Palm Beach. His Dad was the Family photographer for JFK. Rose Kennedy would call his home and tell him where the President was, as he loved to elude the Secret Service. The story is that the Secret Service put a “tail” on Ken’s Father so they would know where JFK was. In May of 1968 he photographed The Miami Pop Festival, the 1st East Coast Rock Festival, featuring Jimi Hendrix and The Experience. Over the course of 50 years Ken has photographed many other Rock Legends such as Mick Jagger, John Lennon, Johnny Cash, Elvis, and Bob Dylan. He also photographed many celebrities such as Dustin Hoffman, Bob Hope, George Burns, Raquel Welch, and Betty Davis plus many more. Politicians include 7 Presidents, 2 Queens and 1 King and Prince Charles and Lady Diana, Historical events such as the Launch of Apollo 11, and the 1972 Democratic and Republican Conventions, many Baseball Hall of Famers are also in Ken’s archive.

In 2008, along with Jack Connell, he started his company, Old Rock Photos.com , an archive of his rock photography on the web; since then he has licensed many of his photos in books, magazines, documentary films, record albums, for clothing, and online publications. In 2009 Michael Lang licensed four of Ken’s photos for his book “The Road to Woodstock”. Early in 2013 he entered the Palm Beach International Film Festival with a short documentary film based on his photographs taken at the 1969 Palm Beach Pop Festival. Ken also has 17 photographs in his father’s book, “The Kennedy Family Album” a collection of Kennedy photos taken by Bob Davidoff.

In November of 2013 Sony Records released the double vinyl limited edition album/CD, plus a single also featuring Ken’s photos of Jimi Hendrix live at the Miami Pop Festival. This album featured Ken’s photography on the front and back covers, the inside of the album and an additional booklet of 20 more of Ken’s photos. On the same day NPR released “American Masters” Jimi Hendrix, which included one of Ken’s images used with credit at the end of the broadcast. In March of 2015 Ken became affiliated with the Jimi Hendrix Foundation and CEO, Joe Rosignolo. Joe was kind enough to write the Forward to Ken’s book, giving it full endorsement by the Jimi Hendrix Foundation, “The Miami Pop Festival”, a Photographic Experience” was published In December of 2015. This book is the definitive history of the 1st East Coast Rock Festival, headlined by The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Promoted by Ric O’Barry and Michael Lang, Michael said of the Miami Pop Festival “This is where the seeds of Woodstock were sown.”

Ken also had a photo exhibit at The Palm Beach County Historical Society Gallery about his images from The 1969 Palm Beach Pop Festival, featuring The Rolling Stones. He was the Official photographer for that ‘69 Rock festival.

On May 18th 2018, at The History Miami Museum there was a Grand Celebration of the 50th anniversary of the May 18th, 1968, Miami Pop Festival. Close to 1000 people were at the opening where the crowd was entertained for about 45 minutes by Jim Hendrix’s brother Leon. Over 50 of Ken’s images were used to explore the history of Rock’s first East Coast festival. Jimi Hendrix was the headliner along with, Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker, Blue Cheer, Arthur Brown, Frank Zappa, and the Mothers of Invention, Blues Image, and Tiger Tiger. This was a major event to celebrate one of Rock’s most important festivals.

Soon after, the History Miami Museum show Ken expanded his business ventures and started a new company called VintageRockIcons.com with his longtime friend of over 20 years, Melinda McGilivray. In addition, they have also started a 501c3 nonprofit, The South Florida Rock & Roll Museum Inc. In the future Ken hopes to tour and speak about his life in photography, encouraging the youth of today to express themselves by creating new images in their own way, showing his work to new audiences, and speaking about his career in photography and the people he has met on his journey. The purpose of The South Florida Rock & Roll Museum is to share the history of rock that Ken has captured through his camera lens, and to support and contribute to the local arts scene. The museum would make the public aware of the history of Rock & Roll that South Florida has. Although The South Florida Rock & Roll Museum will initially start with Kens archive it will expand to include other photographers as time and funding allow.

ABOUT NFTs

A Non-Fungible Token, or NFT is a digital asset that represents a wide range of tangible and intangible assets like digital and conventional artwork, collectibles, memorabilia, and other items. However, unlike typical NFTs which are generally digital video or images that represent “moments in time” like an NBA Top Shot or piece of artwork, Oasis will be creating and deploying embedded AR “triggers” in each Oasis supported NFT, and to support and introduce NFT programs, brands, and participants. This will allow users to engage in enabled immersive and “living” shareable experiences through the Liquid Avatar Mobile App and AR enabled websites.

ABOUT OASIS

Oasis brings together leading individuals and organizations in blockchain technology, computer graphics, augmented reality, entertainment, art, sports, gaming, music, media, comic book, memorabilia, and pop culture arenas to support the fast-paced emergence of the NFT marketplace.
