Identity for refugees thanks to Bitcoin

The "Bitnation Refugee Emergency Response" project enables refugees to create a digital identity that lets them offer some form of ID and make financial transactions. Bitcoin's well-known blockchain technology acts as a kind of international, open and decentralised notary. Family members confirm their name and relationships, and receive a QR code that allows them to provide identification data. What's more, credit cards linked to bitcoin accounts let users receive and make their own payments.
