Blockchain, Meet Biometrics. HYPR and BitGo Team Up

We’re announcing a major partnership with BitGo to deliver biometric security to the world of digital assets, cryptocurrency, and decentralized identity.

Our alliance with Silicon Valley’s top blockchain vault will deliver biometric tokenization to a variety of use cases involving the blockchain, a distributed consensus platform and public ledger of all Bitcoin transactions ever executed.

BitGo secures over $1 billion in digital assets monthly with 10,000-plus transactions daily. Partnering with BitGo allows us to bring enhanced usability and security to enterprises’ blockchain-based use cases. Customer inquiries to both companies have steadily grown and revealed key product opportunities for both teams including:

  • blockchain-based decentralized identity
  • streamlined UX through HYPR-Secure biometric login
  • integration of BitGo’s multi-signature platform for HYPR customers
  • implementation of FIDO-based authentication for blockchain security

Our union with BitGo also accelerates adoption of Fast Identity Online (FIDO) security standards in the bitcoin space, signifying a major push by the digital currency giant towards the emerging standards-based specifications.

We cannot imagine a better team to partner with and look forward to working with BitGo to bring a streamlined, secure experience to both companies’ enterprise customers. To learn more about the twofold opportunity please contact david@hypr.com or jonathan@bitgo.com.
