How Everest removes
the barriers
Everest is the world’s only device-free globally accessible, digital transaction protocol with built-in identity. Through the use of digital identities, electronic wallets, document management, and biometrics, users will be able to digitally verify their identity for public services and claim their social and economic rights.
Device-free identity verification
Peer-to-peer registration using biometric data allows anyone, anywhere to enroll in the platform, without the need for a device.
Seamless value transfer
Everest reduces leakage, fraud, friction, and data access costs with a transparent transaction record and verifiable identity.
Total financial inclusion
Creating global access to existing financial services unlocks the $20 trillion economy of emerging markets.
Individual empowerment
Everest enables users to be in total control of their data and provides access to formal economic systems.
Institutional efficiency
Reduced transfer and data storage fees will allow institutional growth in emerging nations.
Economic growth
The deviceless nature of the platform will empower half of the world's population with new economic opportunities.
Digital Identity on the blockchain is a gateway to all other use cases...
- Asian Development Bank

The inability to prove identity is the single most significant barrier to economic inclusion. Banks, governments, NGOs, hospitals, businesses & users require ID verification, a wallet, and transaction system to exchange value.

Whitepaper One pager Pitch Deck
The principles of Everest:
All individuals can be included without a smart device.
The individual will own and control their information.
All information will be shared selectively and be resilient against attack.
Sustainable Development
The Everest project has been created with four clear components. This is in order to safeguard all user data and keep user access free and ongoing forever.
01
The Identity Network (IN) is a non-profit, stewarded identity and value transfer network for the common good of the planet. The individual’s information cannot be recorded, transferred or used in any manner without their direct consent.
EverID: Decentralized Identity Platform
02
The EverID DApp is a mobile Decentralized Application which gives the user the ability to record, update, store, and transfer value. Peer-to-peer agents will be able to provide access via biometric verification.
03
EverWallet: Supports Multiple Currencies and Document Storage
The EverWallet is included in the EverID Dapp and will be available to partner organizations for inclusion into other software solutions.
EverChain: Very Scalable Value Exchange Platform
04
The EverChain is the underlying technology recording all of the transactions in the Everest system. From simple value exchange to document sharing, EverChain records those transactions into an Ethereum blockchain.
The ID token and the Identity Network ecosystem
IDs are a utility token enabling access to the Identity Network and every exchange of value in the economy.
Receiving payments is always free within the system, but users need to stake 1-100 IDs in their wallet if they want to send payments.
Like within all large systems, the higher levels of data, complexity, visibility and targeting require a larger stake, up to 250,000 IDs.
Institutions need to stake varying amounts of IDs to gain tiered levels of access and additional IDs for market-specific applications.
