Every day we move further towards a world where smartphones replace objects, tools and even documents. Technology is turning our world into a digital one with the aim of facilitating and streamlining all processes.
Last year it emerged that 56% of Spaniards used their smartphone to pay, which not only replaced cash, but It’s also killing off credit cards. And because these advances do not stop, the digitalization of our lives continues without slowing down or looking back.
Now it is the Spanish company Izertis, who have just become the first open source digital wallet in Spain after receiving approval from the European Commission through the EBSI (European Blockchain Services Infrastructure).
The truth is that it is not the first or the only digital wallet to arrive in our country, but what makes it a pioneer is that it’s open source (open source) meaning any entity It is free so you can access its code and implement it in your services.
What is it for?
These digital wallets are the substitute for wallets, but not to make payments, but to carry, just as traditional wallets do, a series of documents, ranging from DNI, driver’s license, legal or Tax Agency documents, even certificates issued by public and private organizations.
Based on expectations, it is believed that By 2024, citizens will be able to prove their identity through these digital wallets throughout the EU territoryalthough, in some countries such as Germany, Latvia and Denmark its use is already authorized.
Everything seems to indicate that this is going to be the future, since today we go where let’s go our mobile accompanies us, Therefore, everything seems to indicate that as these technologies advance, become more secure and have the support of institutions and organizations, we will soon stop using traditional wallets and purses in favor of digital ones.
