Civic (CVC), a decentralized architecture for identity protection, announced today that it has rebranded its decentralized identity verification platform to Identity.com, with plans to launch in August.

According to the announcement by Civic CEO Vinny Lingham, the new platform will ultimately allow individuals, companies and other entities to leverage the blockchain to interact easily and safely in the digital world.

With our revolutionary token behavior model design, Identity.com represents a completely new approach to managing a decentralized community. In March, we processed the first CVC-powered Know Your Customer (KYC) transactions, marking the first exchange of CVCs for identity verification services. Now, we are preparing to expand access to decentralized identity verification services.

Lingham also noted that the Identity.com code will be completely open-source in Q4 2018 after overwhelming requests from the project’s community. Civic is also actively working towards making the SDK available for all developers.

The price of CVC has been in a significant downtrend over the last three months, moving from $0.358 in April to $0.212 today. CVC’s total market cap currently stands at $73 million.
