    Why watch this?

    Join the webinar to learn how a real-life problem in KYC (know-your-customer) management is significantly reduced with the use of the innovative Hyperledger blockchain technology.

    Banks are currently spending on average $50-60 million per year on KYC processes, largely due to cumbersome manual processes. Norbloc, a Hyperledger Project member company, has built a KYC blockchain-enabled platform powered by Hyperledger Fabric technology that allows:

    • Highly secure digitization of KYC profiles
    • Secure and auditable sharing of KYC profiles
    • Monetization of banks’ KYC stamp of approval

    According to norbloc, financial institutions can achieve 30% savings by using the platform, with minimal change of internal KYC procedures and limited system integration.

    Why join the webinar:

    This session will show how the blockchain technology can apply to a KYC use case for simpler compliance process.

    Vitalii Demianets from norbloc will present a blockchain platform powered by Hyperledger Fabric technology. He will speak on the challenges (legal and technical) that norbloc team faced in producing their KYC solution and how one can reason about choosing the best platform to work on for their blockchain application.


    • What is the problem in KYC management process that norbloc is solving with Hyperledger
    • What were the challenges they faced in the process
    • How the platform operates today – live demonstration
    • How norbloc used Hyperledger and why they chose Fabric as the underlying protocol

    • Senior leadership and heads of innovation initiatives in banks, financial institutions, insurance firms, consultancies, other enterprises
    • Compliance officers, project managers, information architects, security officers and other compliance-related professionals
    • Developers and blockchain enthusiasts interested in non-trivial blockchain use cases
