Microsoft to launch an identity platform through the blockchain

The well-known tech giant Microsoft recently started a partnership with Blockstack Labs and ConsenSys to create an open-source platform to integrate both the Bitcoin and Ethereum blockchains.
In today’s blog post published by Microsoft blockchain business strategist Yorke Rhodes III, in fact, he explained that the company will create an open source framework on Azure, where developers can build their own identity applications.

“Microsoft is collaborating with partners Blockstack Labs and ConsenSys, and developers across the globe on an open source, self-sovereign, blockchain-based identity system that allows people, products, apps, and services to interoperate across blockchains, cloud providers, and organizations. Our goal in contributing to this initiative is to start a conversation on blockchain-based identity that could improve apps, services, and more importantly, the lives of real people worldwide by enabling self-owned or self-sovereign identity”.


The possibility to connect this platform to both the Ethereum and the Bitcoin blockchain will take place thanks to Blockstack and uPort systems. 
This partnership started during the ID2020 Summit held in New York a few weeks ago. 
According to Rhodes, a first version of this framework will be launched within the end of the summer on the Azure platform. 


Identity Problem in the Digital World

According to the post published by Rhodes, 1.5 billion people don’t have a proper identification
And this makes it difficult for them to have a bank account or access to education and more services.
  • 1.5B people are without proper identification, that’s one-fifth of the world’s population.
  • One in three children under the age of five does not officially exist because their birth has not been recorded.
  • Cumulatively, 230M children under the age of five have no birth certificate; this number is growing.
  • 50M children are born without legal identity, the size of the UK, each year.

Does Gavin Andreseen “agree” Craig Wright is the real Satoshi Nakamoto?

Australian computer scientist Craig Wright revealed he is the real Satoshi Nakamoto, the man who invented Bitcoin back in 2008. 
Wright announced this huge news at the most important news journals of the world, including BBC, GQ, and the Economist.





He explained: 
“These are the blocks used to send 10 bitcoins to Hal Finney in January as the first bitcoin transaction.”

Gavin Andresen confirms this thesis: Wright is Satoshi

The most popular Bitcoin developer Gavin Andresen published a post where he explained he is convinced by the Wright’s announcement.

He wrote:

“I was flown to London to meet Dr. Wright a couple of weeks ago, after an initial email conversation convinced me that there was a very good chance he was the same person I’d communicated with in 2010 and early 2011. After spending time with him I am convinced beyond a reasonable doubt: Craig Wright is Satoshi.”

Craigh Wright is a trend on Twitter

Everyone is talking about this shocking news on Twitter. In fact, Craigh Wright quickly became a worldwide trend.


And we cannot avoid asking ourselves how this revelation will affect bitcoin.

Is the mystery solved?

In the latest hours, we found that probably the Andreseen’s account is been hacked so he never wrote the post where he confirmed the Satoshi Nakamoto identity.

Also, the signature Craig used to prove his Bitcoin invention is a fake.
