What We Do

At Tykn, we leverage blockchain technology to build electronic identity, authentication and trust services (eIDAS) tools for governments, financial institutions and NGOs, ensuring full compliance with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) to be imposed by Q2 of 2018.

Registration of Self-Sovereign Identity

Registration and verification of your legal identity through Tykn's Ana App. To be launched in Q4 of 2017.

Contribution of Free Software

Since we believe that sharing is caring, all our developed code is released as open and free software.

Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) Solutions

  • Improving current KYC legacy systems
  • Certifying birth certificates on a distributed ledger
  • Reducing risk of fraud through systems of verifiable trust

Meet-ups & Workshops

More involvement means faster development, so we regularly host meet-ups & workshops on Blockchain and Self-Sovereign Identity. Stay tuned for future sessions!

The Trust Framework

At the core of our solutions lies Hyperledger Indie, a distributed ledger platform built by Sovrin in collaboration with the team behind IBM's Hyperledger, which provides a foundation for the Sovrin Network.

On August 23rd, Tykn was voted into the Sovrin Network as a Founding Steward. Tykn is now running a Validator Node for the reading and writing of identity records and Decentralised Identifiers (DIDs) within the network, ultimately to be done through a separate foundation which we are currently in the process of establishing as a legal entity. In addition to this, Tykn will be assisting in the development of the Trust Framework, Technical Roadmap and the testing, evaluating and improving of the overall Sovrin Network itself.

Free & Open-Source Software

All assistance in development of the Sovrin Network by the Tykn team is done as both free & open-source software and hosted under

Hyperledger Indy's Github Repo

Tykn Tools

OAuth2-compatible software, leveraging Tykn's set of APIs, which also provides a full transition of current legacy systems towards our decentralised identity-management system.

Project ZINC

Project Zero INvisible Children (ZINC) aims to permanently certify the identity of children in conflict zones by leveraging blockchain technology.

By leveraging Blockchain technology, we are able to register the legal identity of children such as Lyn permanently through a mobile application, forever. No matter the terrible conditions in the home countries of these children, they shall always be registered, where no war, database failure or human error could possibly change this.

"We're giving invisible children a chance to have an incredible life"

Project ZINC has granted us a placing in The Spindle Innovation Awards! Click the logo below for an overview of what we have been working on!

Relieving a Severe Humanitarian Problem

Last February, we ventured down to a Syrian refugee camp in the Bekaa-Barelias area in Lebanon, with the goal to learn as much as possible about the conditions the people there are living in to help in designing the most elegant solution. What we found was that, where the actual registration of children is even more cumbersome to refugees than we thought (especially for children past the age of one), a grand majority of people inside the refugee camp actually own or have access to a smartphone with a fair internet connection. This is our gateway to the solution these people deserve.
