Presentation: Blockchain and Biometrics: the implementation of innovative technologies at the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund (UNJSPF)

In January 2021, in accordance with its digital transformation strategy, UNJSPF deployed a solution based on blockchain and biometrics to transform a legacy process with a global reach (84K beneficiaries located in more than 192 countries). The solution offered an alternative to paper-based processes 

UNJSPF beneficiaries are required to sign and submit a ‘Certificate of Entitlement,’ or ‘CE,’ every year as a “proof of existence” and proof of country of residence, to continue receiving their benefits.  

With this ‘Digital CE solution,’ UNJSPF aimed to create, verify and secure the digital identities of beneficiaries – while also preventing fraud – using biometrics; identifying their locations with geo-location technology; and storing transactions on an immutable, traceable and independently auditable ledger, using the Hyperledger Indy platform.  

The Digital CE solution addressed both technical and business audiences, focusing on innovation and technology for social good.

Presentation: Data Spaces – Where Old School and Crypto Meet to Create a European Digital Economy

  • Increasing coordination between actors leads to better outcomes, especially when coordination is not only local. 
  • This is especially true for the mobility sector, which could profit hugely if fused with other sectors like energy or infrastructure. 
  • If machines are to participate, digital platforms are needed to achieve this. 
  • With the need for platforms, the “eternal” question arises: who controls the platform, one company or the collective stakeholder? 
  • If the latter is the goal, Blockchain governance and technologies are an important building block.
