What Safe Harbor Offers
Harbor directly supports uPort, allowing refugees to re-establish their digital identity upon arrival without the need for centralized systems. At the same time, they can immediately begin transacting in the local economy as the identity contract also stores value.
From securing the platform to helping reconnect families, Harbor’s AI utilizes open-source facial recognition frameworks to streamline and track the entire resettlement process.
Harbor provides government agencies and non-profits the ability to incentivize behavior that will lead to successful resettlements. With blockchain identities established, refugees are now able to be easily rewarded for completing language classes, job training workshops, and weekly check-ins.
Harbor’s goal is to get short-term employment opportunities in front of refugees within days of arrival. Each successful task is added as an attestation to their digital identity. A verifiable job history paired with a biometrically-secure platform will ease barriers to employment.
Refugees will benefit immediately from the establishment of self-sovereign identification, allowing them to interact with the Ethereum network without the need for login and passwords. At the same time, their decentralized identity is accompanied by the ability to serve as a value store that cannot be frozen, altered, or stolen by any government or private entity.
