HashKey Cloud and Aptos Foundation have joined forces in a strategic alliance to advance the development of infrastructure and applications on Aptos. This partnership is focused on technical advancement and unites the expertise of two highly reputable organizations with notable institutional backgrounds and innovative collaborations, including offerings such as DID (Decentralized Identifiers) and regulated STOs (Security Token Offering)

The collaboration begins with the native integration of HashKey DID, a multi-chain decentralized identity data aggregator powered by smart contracts, NFTs, and privacy protection decentralized protocols. It aims to provide identity services to Web3 users. As a crucial Web3 infrastructure in the HashKey ecosystem, the primary objective of HashKey DID is to establish a community-governed HashKey DID DAO in collaboration with users. The integration of HashKey DID onto the Aptos blockchain initiates a transformative journey towards the convergence of Web2 and Web3 technologies. With HashKey DID, individuals gain complete control over their virtual identity and online data, facilitating seamless verification across multiple platforms. This open and permissionless solution allows universal registration, usage, and storage of ID-related data, while also offering KYA/AML solutions to promote compliance in crypto scenarios. The partnership between HashKey Cloud and Aptos Foundation lays the foundation for a more inclusive, secure, and interconnected digital future.

Beyond the initial integration, HashKey Cloud is actively exploring forward-thinking solutions, including liquid Node Validation and STO solutions. These innovative services offered by HashKey Cloud aim to revolutionize the financial landscape, providing opportunities for increased liquidity and unlocking the value of traditionally illiquid assets.
