What’s on the horizon?
V-ID’s BRU revealed
Finally, the mysterious BRU has been revealed! These are our grand plans and ambitions for our token -, business - and development strategy.
Some of the roadmap highlights are a top exchange, Operation Whale Shrinker: 2M VIDT bought back, a Learn and Earn Programme, API V3 "trust automated" real-time validation and verification, B2C applications, a VIDT usage dashboard (live right now!), a V-ID powered IOE (internet of environments platform), a V-ID powered KYC/customer due dilligence process and security token VIDS, which provides the option to convert VIDT into VIDS.
So there you have it, a big roadmap update that lays out V-ID's ambitions from today into 2020!

V-ID validates a Rembrandt!
V-ID's first step into validation for physical objects.
V-ID worked together with CMS, one of the worlds' largest law firms, and Douwes Fine Art, established in 1770, to validate a piece of our heritage by collecting all vetted evidence in a validated digital file.
API V2 'compatibility 100%' deployed
Written and documented using the international Swagger standard, the API can be used by all licensed publishers and is able to connect all modern software to V-ID blockchain services.
The V2 API brings real-time validation for up to 10 files at once and request-response validation for up to 100 files in one request.
More than 1 file per request will be batched in a single transaction, requiring VIDT fee x number of files.
The API is in it's documenting phase and expected to be fully deployed at the start of June 2019.
VIDT usage dashboard live
Launch of the usage dashboard, tracking live data concerning the usage of VIDT by V-ID's clients and the valuation of VIDT. By popular demand of our community!
OWS! (Operation Whale Shrinker)
V-ID bought back 2M VIDT from an equity investor and holder of a large VIDT wallet, of which:
500K VIDT will be distributed to the community through a learn-and-earn programme to increase awareness
500K VIDT was added to the Team Wallet
1M VIDT has been burned on May the 31st.

Deepdive2 @CMS Amsterdam
The second Deepdive for GDPR compliant blockchain solutions in collaboration with CMS Law and LTO Network. Olivier Rikken will be speaking about blockchain governance. The goal is to develop a framework for GDPR compliant blockchain solutions.
The latest version of V-ID's webapp includes new features, better performance and an integrated QR scanner.
Monthly buybacks and burns
API V3 'trust automated'
This API is able to both validate and verify files on-the-fly / in real-time. Development starts early June and is expected to be available shortly after.
The invoice eco-system will be powered by this API, creating the possibility to fully automate the validating and verifying of invoices.
B2C closed bèta
The first version of V-ID's B2C application launches in a private testing pool.
The B2C application provides easy-as-can-be IP protection to individuals.
End to end security layer
V-ID client Vitrumnet manages a closed fiber network for businesses and governmental organisations.
V-ID secures communication and data sharing with other networks by installing an end-to-end validation / verification layer at server level, based on API V3.
Learn and earn programme
500K VIDT funded by Operation Whale Shrinker will be distributed to participants of the learn and earn programme.
IoE data flow secured with V-ID
Under the term IoE (Internet of Environments), V-ID, together with partners, rolls out a data flow process that secures the real-time data from sensors, which dictate the actions of automated energy - and quality management systems of buildings. The IoE initiative is part of Digital Mainport, which is a precursor to the Dutch nation-wide Digital Trust Center.
VIDT listing on top exchange
To ensure higher volumes, more exposure and a lower barrier to invest, VIDT will be listed on a top exchange.
V-ID powered KYC process
Together with two (yet undisclosed) partner organisations, V-ID offers a customer due diligence tool, that circumvents repeating costs and cuts down required time and costs for CDD processes, specifically at financial institutions.
Best practice GDPR framework
In cooperation with CMS Law, LTO Network, and with input from experts from, among others, IBM, KPN, Rabobank and Axveco, a best practice framework for GDPR compliant blockchain solutions is proposed as a EU-wide standard for companies and governments in the EU region.
Real-time GDPR compliant API toolset
V-ID offers a GDPR compliant toolset that follows the best practice framework that was written after the Deepdive sessions with LTO Network, CMS Law and experts from collaborating companies.
In this way, V-ID lowers the barriers even further to commit governments and corporates to use V-ID blockchain technology.
V-ID powered B2C applications
V-ID launches the first consumer service. Paying with VIDT, individuals can use V-ID's Validation service to validate files.
The KYC process for validating individuals is separated, so validations can be done right away, whilst authenticating the validators' identity is possible at a later time.
VIDS, V-ID's security token
Launch of security token VIDS. VIDT can be exchanged for VIDS, which represents possession of shares in the company V-ID
Last May, the V-ID team bought back a large portion of VIDT from a whale. We are giving away 500K VIDT to participants of the Learn & Earn programme. The programme starts in September, with limited slots, so sign up now to secure your slot!
