It is inevitable that our sensitive private data that are stored online are prone to abuse, hacks, and breaches. Statistics show that billions of recorded data have been stolen since the last decade. If this continues to happen, individuals and businesses will worry about making transactions online. This situation eventually can lead to a decrease in online activity. Therefore, it is important to take back control of the data. Nuggets with its blockchain based platform offer a revolutionary way to control personal data easy.
Specified in ID platform and online business payment, Nuggets uses blockchain to protect all personal and payment data safely. There is no way to share the data with anyone. Even Nuggets itself cannot access the data that have been stored in the blockchain. That is how it works. As a result, breaches can be prevented. This is because companies have no necessity to store their clients’ data. So, clients can use services and make payments without being afraid that their privacy will be hacked or breached.
Nuggets offer numerous features that aim to ease its users to handle their payment safely. First, making payment is very simple via the platform. What you need to is just select the Nuggets option, use your biometrics or fingerprint to confirm, and that’s all. You do not need to share any of your personal information. Second, you don’t need to create password nor usernames. In other platforms or accounts, users usually must make a username and password and when they forget the password, it can be a big problem. Furthermore, nowadays hackers are getting so smart they can hack someone’s password easily. By being password-free it also reduces the chance of account being hacked.
The other interesting feature is the rewards in the form of Nugent’s token that clients can earn from the moment they sign up. These tokens can be used to pay products and services from any merchants in the platform.
