Service To Provide Secure Method to Verify Authenticity of Credentials Digitally and Help Eliminate Document Fraud

PETALING JAYA, Malaysia, Sept. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — MY E.G. Services Berhad (“MYEG”) and China’s state-owned Guangxi Beitou IT Innovation Technology Investment Group Co., Ltd. (“Beitou IT Innovation”) has entered into a collaboration to leverage on the Zetrix blockchain to offer cross-border credentials verification services, paving the way for the digitalisation of vital documents, including major government-issued identity credentials.

Harnessing the power of the blockchain, the partners conducted a public demonstration of an application that enables the issuance of digital driving licences as verifiable credentials, starting with Chinese nationals. The demonstration was held at the China-ASEAN Expo on 16-20 September in Nanning, capital city of south China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

Through the application, holders of Chinese-issued driving licences would be able to apply online to obtain a digitalised version of their documents in the form of a Verified Credential stored on the Zetrix blockchain wallet.

The availability of a verifiable digital version of driving licences would represent significant convenience for holders as their credentials could be presented anywhere in the world, not only to prove their driving competence, but as confirmation of their identities.

Chairman of Beitou IT Innovation Mr. Shuiping Lai said: “The collaboration with MYEG is a key step of our ASEAN business development. The digital cross-border credential verification platform based on the international blockchain infrastructure is a very meaningful attempt for both MYEG and Beitou IT Innovation’s professional digital teams. By leveraging the features of blockchain such as immutability and data security, this platform is able to provide the convenience to the cross-border communications of China-ASEAN people under the premise of legal compliance.”

TS Wong, founder and Group Managing Director of MYEG added: “We continue to build real-world Web3 applications leveraging on its unique functionality of ensuring the authenticity of digitised documents, including identity credentials and trade documents.  Such applications will be the driver to bring 1 billion users to Web3.”

Digitalisation of the driving licence on the blockchain would enable any authorised third party anytime and anywhere to confirm the authenticity of the credentials as genuinely-issued by the respective authorised authority. As the unique mechanism of the blockchain secures data against tampering and falsification, parties seeking to verify credentials can rest assured that unlike physical documents which may be susceptible to forgery, counterfeiting and other forms of fraudulent activities, digital credentials on the blockchain are trustworthy, genuine, and verifiable in real-time.

Such features are particularly critical for credentials like driving licences which are commonly used in many jurisdictions worldwide as a secondary of identity documentation, including as part of mandatory Know Your Customer (“KYC”) processes.

Beyond driving licences, the collaboration between MYEG and Beitou IT Innovation intends to progressively enable the digitalisation and verification, on the blockchain, of all types of documents that are presently still available only in physical form and where authenticity and accuracy are of critical importance.

In doing so, the partners aim to provide a much-needed solution to simplify and expedite customer onboarding, transactional or service delivery processes through digitalisation, without compromising on safety and security, whilst contributing towards eliminating incidents of document fraud and falsification.

The services to be offered through the collaboration leverages on the cross-border capabilities of Zetrix, a Layer-1 blockchain developed by MYEG that also hosts the international supernode of China’s national Xinghuo Blockchain Infrastructure and Facility, thus enabling mutual cross-border issuance and verification of Verificable Credentials on Zetrix and Xinghuo International.

Established in October 2020, Beitou IT Innovation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Guangxi Beibu Gulf Investment Group Co., Ltd, which is listed as one of China’s Top 500 enterprises, focuses on spearheading digital industry development. Recognized as a national scientific and technological innovation demonstration enterprise, Beitou IT Innovation undertakes the transfer and implementation of emerging IT technologies in Guangxi. It also manages the operations of the China-ASEAN Information Port Beitou Digital Technology Park.

This latest initiative aims to further solidify MYEG’s position as a pioneering enabler and innovator in the digitalisation of cross-border economic and trade processes, especially between China and the rest of the world. In March, MYEG signed an agreement with East Logistic-Link Co., Ltd, a wholly-owned agency of the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China (“GACC”), to jointly provide a full suite of cross-border trade facilitation services that include certificates of origin on Zetrix. The service, known as ZTrade, is being deployed in Malaysia and the Philippines, with efforts underway for its expansion into other nations across ASEAN and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership region.

The EQT AB Group has a long-term business model founded on a promise to its fund investors to invest capital, drive value creation and create consistent attractive returns over a 5 to 10-year horizon. The Group’s financial model is primarily affected by the size of its fee-generating assets under management, the performance of the EQT funds and its ability to recruit and retain top talent.

The Group operates in a market driven by long-term trends and thus believes quarterly financial statements are less relevant for investors. However, in order to provide the market with relevant and suitable information about the Group’s development, EQT publishes quarterly announcements with key operating numbers that are relevant for the business performance (taking Nasdaq’s guidance note for preparing interim management statements into consideration). In addition, a half-year report and a year-end report including financial statements and further information relevant for investors is published. Finally, EQT also publishes an annual report including sustainability reporting.
