CS-Cart is Integrating with Blockchain-Based Customer Identification Technology by Omnitude

By Yan Kulakov, September 12th, 2018 in News and announcements

Hello!

We’re happy to announce that we’re partnering with a blockchain development company Omnitude to integrate with their digital identification technology called Omnitude ID.

Omnitude is a British company offering blockchain solutions for businesses. Omnitude’s customers include Williams Martini Racing, The Maltese Government’s Ministry for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects, Luxury Goods and Food Retailers, and other companies.

One of their key solutions is Omnitude ID (OID)—a blockchain technology that allows for single sign-on to websites and a self sovereign identity. With a single sign-on, a customer will only need to sign on to the Omnitude ID system once and then easily access any CS-Cart based e-shop that supports OID.

The customer’s data such as credentials, addresses, and banking data will be stored securely on the distributed network of the Omnitude’s blockchain. Customers will decide themselves what data to release to vendors and who can see it. This technology will not only guarantee security for customers and vendors but also greatly help to comply with GDPR regulations and reduce fraudulent transactions.

Another cool feature of Omnitude ID is eliminating fake product reviews. Customers trust product reviews much more than TV and Internet ads and media. Sometimes vendors write fake positive reviews to boost sales and competitors write bad reviews to make damage. Fake product reviews will also be eliminated with the help of OID—only customers who have Proof of Interaction will be able to post feedback.

We expect CS-Cart to be the first and only shopping cart software integrated with this blockchain identification technology.

From paying for an Uber ride to ordering groceries from Instacart, buying products from Amazon and booking a movie ticket from BookMyShow, we all use mobile apps for doing payment one way or the other.
