AIKON Makes Blockchain Technology Simple

Listen to this article

Below is our recent interview with Caitlin Abejon, VP, Marketing and Customer Experience at AIKON:

Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?

A: Today’s businesses and consumers are losing control of their digital identities. Between the numerous tools we use for work and our personal lives, our information is registered everywhere and provided to banks, retailers, advertising agencies and more— and as we’ve seen time and time again, this information is often exploited through cyber attacks.

AIKON is changing this status quo. We’re building secure, simple-to-use, universal solutions that repair today’s fragmented experience and give back ownership to both businesses and individuals through decentralized solutions.

AIKON’s solutions are built on the Open Rights Exchange (ORE) Network. A decentralized, cross-chain blockchain that is built to scale to billions of users.

ORE ID is a single sign-on platform that uses common social logins to create accounts on the blockchain to provide a transparent and accountable view of transactions and is natively cross-chain with Ethereum, Algorand, EOS and more.

ORE Vault is a multi-signature crypto wallet for businesses that manage digital assets and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). ORE Vault uses digital signatures to authenticate the origin, identity and status of any transactions made by the team.

The AIKON team is led by a seasoned team of entrepreneurs and experts in the blockchain industry including co-founder and CEO Marc Blinder — a veteran of 5 startups whose accomplishments include the acquisition of a social media startup to Adobe for $400M.

Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?

A: In the latest milestone to fixing the broken digital identity experience, we recently announced:

SpiderDAO, the industry’s first hardware-enabled DAO, is integrating ORE ID and ORE Vault into their entire ecosystem — providing SpiderDAO users a seamless login experience.

RedFOX Labs taps ORE ID for their entire ecosystem, including the recently announced play-to-earn game, KOGS:SLAM!

ORE Vault now allows customers to securely view, store and transfer their NFTs. Through ORE Vault’s OpenSea integration, teams can easily buy, sell, bid transfer and create NFTs.

CEO Marc Blinder recently joined Fast Company’s Executive Board — an invitation-only professional organization of leaders who share a commitment to shaping the future of business.

Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?

A: AIKONs ORE ID and ORE Vault so;lutions are built on top of the ORE Network, which is all powered by the ORE ($ORE) Token. ORE Token is the digital asset built for identity and runs the ORE Network.

ORE Token is cross-chain, sustainable and built to scale to billions of users. Anyone who wants to use the ORE Network has to buy and use ORE Tokens to store data in the registry. Anytime a business creates a new account on the ORE Network for its users, the business needs to purchase ORE Tokens. This is akin to renting servers in the cloud.

Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?

A: We’re putting a lot of energy into supporting new blockchains – Polygon, Cardano, Polkadot, BSC are all coming soon. And we’re happy to provide developer grants for teams that want to help us integrate new blockchains to our open-source ChainJS standard:

Beyond the cross-chain functionality – we’re building out our multisig ORE Vault product with a number of new DeFi and NFT features flaunching over the next few months.

Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?

A: Blockchain technology has the power to change the way we live, work and play. But it’s too technologically complex for everyday use. We’re changing that with our intuitive solutions that remove middlemen and give back businesses and consumers control of their digital identity
