Becoming an oracle in the
Digital Infrastructure of a Nation

THE CHALLENGE

The mission of the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (KvK) is making life easier for entrepreneurs by providing useful information and trust, safety and security when doing business. Like a citizen has an identity, each company has an identity too, registered by the KvK.

The Dutch Chamber of Commerce is building an identity-checker that gives an entrepreneur the possibility to identify him or herself in the digital world. Implementation of this pilot is the first step for a role as an oracle, which would be a groundbreaking paradigm shift for the Dutch entrepreneurial landscape, to create new and better products and services for companies.

You can build on top of this building block in helping us becoming an oracle.

Our questions:

How can we bring trust in doing business in the world economy by using new technologies?

How can we make it easier to do business with digital tools, diminish fraud and support systems for Know Your Customer Processes, Identity- and accesmanagement?

How can I as an entrepreneur know whom I’m dealing with? Is my partner authorized to make this transaction? How can smart contracts be used for easy legal issues like legal form, transactions, authentication and so on.
