How it Works

The Dominode Blockchain Solution for Professional Digital Identity Management

Designed to maximize protection, privacy, and portability, the Dominode Professional Identity Solution secures and authenticates the integrity of all data, documents and processes, and gives the owner unprecedented control over when and where digital assets are shared across multiple channels.

Fundamental to the solution are the same internet technologies used by NASDAQ, Walmart, Overstock and IBM to facilitate trade around the world.  Our core product leverages blockchain, smart contracts, and crypto technologies with:

  • Permissioned access to a global business network
  • Validation by trusted sources supported by proof of assertion documents
  • Hyper-secure and multiple key encryption
  • Mobile biometric authentication enforces security and portability

A professional can record academic and professional qualifications in additional to financial and personal information. All data is verified to be true, is fully portable, secured with strong encryption and supported by proof documents.

With Dominode, professionals control and share their digital assets inside an encrypted permissioned network wherever they are and on any device, with less risk and complexity.

What is Blockchain?

The blockchain is a system that is used for recording and sharing the history of transactions and tracking assets within a business network. Basically, anything of value can be tracked and traded on the blockchain.

The system creates a fully-automatized distributed digital ledger that is used to record and synchronize transactions across many computers. Each participant in a permissioned blockchain has a unique identity which controls network participation and access to transaction details, so that confidential information is shared on a need to know basis. Agreement is required from all network members, and only authenticated transactions are recorded. No one person can delete or alter a transaction after the initial recording.

With blockchain, for example, a business professional’s license application and related background investigations can be documented, secured, and distributed when permission is granted; certificates of good standing can be established in trusted jurisdictions, and then shared globally on consent; and required reporting can be filed on a timely basis, with automated notification of expiration.

The blockchain, smart contracts and crypto technologies offer a compelling solution to the many complications that stand in the way of protecting a professional’s digital assets and identity.

License Management

Within the global gaming and lottery industry, there are more than 400 licensing jurisdictions with many operators and vendors doing business in multiple jurisdictions. In each jurisdiction, regulators require operators, vendors, and key employees to submit highly sensitive data, documents and questionnaires to attest to character, financial status and fitness to hold a gaming license. The many-to-many relationship is a time-consuming, expensive and redundant task which is open to financial and personnel constraints, inefficiencies in compliance management and monitoring and importantly, data security breach.

Dominode solves this problem by becoming the single source of truth for Regulators, Operators and Vendors with a secure, scalable and fault-tolerant platform for Regulatory Compliance and License Management. Dominode speeds the sharing of critical documents in an ultra-secure, private and cost-effective manner by creating a one-to-many relationship between Regulators and Licensees.

Designed for absolute maximum security, every design decision is made to secure and protect the integrity of the documents and process—and the business. Contact the sales team to learn how the Dominode solution will benefit the gaming industry.
