TORONTO — July 8, 2020 — The National Crowdfunding & Fintech Association (NCFA), Toronto Finance International (TFI), and partners are pleased to announce that together with their sponsor, KABN Systems North America Inc. (“KABN”), attendees of FFCON20 DIGITAL, taking place from July 9 through August 27 inclusive, will receive an exclusive Liquid Avatar FFCON 20 iconic digital pin to celebrate their attendance at the event.
The FFCON20 digital pin is the first event pin offered by Liquid Avatar (www.liquidavatar.com) in support of its new app to power users to verify, manage and monetize their digital identity.
Liquid Avatar, a KABN product offering, provides users with the ability to verify, manage and control their digital identity through an easy to use app or web page. Using high quality icons, users can create their digital identity and verify themselves using KABN’s bank grade validation process and biometrics, supported by Blockchain technologies.
“We’re honored to be able to present our first Liquid Avatar event pin at FFCON 20 DIGITAL,” said Mr. Ben Kessler, CEO – KABN. “Liquid Avatar gives users control over the use of their digital identity and data providing them with the ability to share what they want, when they want and with whom they want, easily and efficiently, while protecting the use of their digital assets.”
Liquid Avatar creates a re-usable, always on, verified digital identity that can be used, together with the app’s “wallet” and “keyrings” for current and future digital credentials and to manage private and public data. Liquid Avatar is built to support a wide range of digital credentials, wallets and authentication processes, creating a potentially agnostic authenticated storage environment for the user.
“We’re very excited to work with the KABN team to provide attendees with the inaugural Liquid Avatar event pin with potential future value offerings from NCFA and its partners, and to commemorate FFCON20 DIGITAL, and what a transformative year 2020 has been for the digital economy and those on the RISE,” said Craig Asano, Founder and CEO – NCFA Canada. “Users will be able to claim their digital pin and gain early access to the Liquid Avatar app.”
KABN will be presenting Digital Identity and Convergence Marketplaces, as part of the FFCON20 DIGITAL programme on Thursday, August 6, 2020 at 2 pm Eastern. Attendees of that event will get additional Liquid Avatar rewards. Registered attendees can claim their inaugural Liquid Avatar event pin by completing this form.
