Who is ExistenceID?

Peter Robertson.

Peter Robertson - Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer - Peter is a blockchain and distributed technology enthusiast and community leader. He has a solid history of architecting and building effective business and consumer applications. Peter is blockchain agnostic and focused on the potential of peer-to-peer networks and hybrid blockchain systems.


ExistenceID began life as a conventional business with three founders, Katherine Noall CEO, Grant Lenaarts CBDO and Peter Robertson CTO. Bradley Hugues joined as CMO.

There are many approaches to identity and to technologies upon which identity products and services can be built and delivered. We take the view that the public network, (the Internet plus the WWW), is virtually impossible to secure and have therefor targetted newly-emerging networks based on pure peer-to-peer (p2p) architectures. The most promising candidate for our deployment is SafeNetwork.

SafeNetwork was conceived over a decade ago and development has continued and accelerated over that time. While the past year has seen fairly spectacular progress, the project is still in alpha and it is uncertain at this point when the network will lanuch into production.

Given these uncertainties, it was decided that the project should be restructured to reduce the burn rate and to consolidate efforts on a sub-set of the initial vision with the result that the commercial component has been deferred and all effort will now focus on the free, publicly available feature set. The most likely vehicle for this is a foundation to manage an open source project.

Of the original team members, Peter Robertson has remained to transition the project and establish the foundation. We expect to be in a position to announce the details of our new structure within two months.
