Yesterday, the payments firm Mastercard announced it is joining the ID2020 Alliance to explore digital identity solutions.
We have been talking for decades about the coming cashless society, one in which buying and selling is controlled by a digital identification mark, and now we are so close to it that is less than two years away. NTEB was one of the very first news outlets to warn you, back on October 24 of 2019, about the company created and funded by Microsoft and Bill Gates, a company called the ID2020 Alliance. Now credit giant Mastercard has thrown their impressive corporate clout behind them, the process should accelerate exponentially.
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:16-18 (KJB)
All the pieces are falling into place, and the global elites who brought you the global COVID-19 lockdown have many more tricks up their sleeve, all for your protection and safety, of course. Do you know what the very first piece of technology that was released on the market in the aftermath of 9/11? It was the human implantable RFID microchip from VeriChip Corp, they have since changed their name to Digital Angel. You don’t have to wonder what will be released in the aftermath of COVID-19 because we have been showing you and warning you night and day for the last 10 weeks. The only question is what will you do about it when they coming knocking on your door?
Mastercard joins blockchain digital identity alliance ID2020
FROM LEDGER INSIGHTS: The ID2020 Alliance was founded by Accenture, Microsoft, Gavi, Rockefeller Foundation and IDEO. Partners include NGOs, private companies and UN agencies.
The ongoing pandemic has led to the emergence of digital-only solutions that require users to prove who they are. Digital identity could play a significant role in facilitating access to a range of digital services.
“We must work together to establish consistency and common standards across the globe that can make this a reality, addressing real challenges faced by people every day and sparking continued innovation,” said Ajay Bhalla, president, Cyber & Intelligence, Mastercard.
Last year, Mastercard said it was exploring decentralized digital identity for verifying financial transactions, government interactions, and online services. It is a well-established fact that digital identity could enable banking and other services for people with no physical papers or credit history.
The World Bank estimates over a billion people lack any form of legally recognized identification. This hinders their access to vital services, including healthcare, social protection, education and finance. Several solutions are being developed globally, but ID2020 believes collaboration and global partnerships are key to digital identity adoption.
“Digital identity can be a powerful force multiplier to enhance social and economic opportunities for all people,” said Dakota Gruener, Executive Director of ID2020. “But to fully realize that potential, governments, technology companies, financial institutions and civil society must collaborate. We are delighted to welcome Mastercard to the ID2020 Alliance and applaud their commitment to privacy-protecting, user-centric digital identity.”
Gruener recently penned a Harvard whitepaper about COVID-19 immunity certificates for the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics.
The ID2020 Alliance enables partners to pool in funds and other resources to develop digital identity projects. The Alliance has already launched pilots and recently worked with the Government of Bangladesh to launch a digital identity program for vaccination in the country.
Evernym is the company that initiated the Sovrin network, the public self-sovereign identity network. South Korea has three separate decentralized identity projects. Last month, Microsoft, Evernym, ID2020 and many others formed the COVID Credentials Initiative (CCI) to use digital identity for keeping COVID-19 spread in check. READ MORE

Imagine carrying just about everything you need beneath the surface of your hand – your wallet, keys and ID, all in a microchip. That’s reality in Sweden, as some early-adopters implant the tiny devices beneath their skin.

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 15,242+ people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 150,000+ followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 15,900 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
