Liquid Avatar Technologies will deploy its biometric technology to enable the identity verification of users in the metaverse platform Aftermath Islands.
Called Meta Park Pass, the Web 3-based digital identity credential allows users to identify themselves in real-time and without disclosing personally identifiable information (PII) to a website, gaming platform, eCommerce site or other online platforms.
Aftermath Islands, operated by a subsidiary of Liquid Avatar, will be the first company to use Liquid Avatar’s Meta Park Pass, but the company said it intends to expand its use to other metaverse-based applications. The Lost Kingdom of T’Sara, a play-to-earn Aftermath Islands metaverse game, will be among the first implementations of the pass.
“Aftermath Islands is excited to be one of the first to be able to support a solution that creates assurance for our players and business partners that users are real people,” comments David Lucatch, managing director of Aftermath Islands Metaverse.
“Deploying an interoperable digital identity solution that allows users to manage and control their personal information and data is a true game changer, and has the potential to increase safety, privacy and reduce fraud to create a better experience for all Metaverse participants.”
One of the first interoperable digital identities for the metaverse, Meta Park Pass combines a scannable QR code (or mobile URL) with a user’s biometrics to create and secure a W3C Verifiable Credential.
