ShareRing Lab, a division of ShareRing Limited, announces the beginning of the application period for grants for practicable research in the areas of metaverse, digital identity and NFTs. The company welcomes applications related to the topics of the use of digital identity within a metaverse environment, as well as the development and usage of NTfs with the utility for events, access to venues, identity verification or other applications that do not include NFT art.
The grants will be managed by ShareRing Lab – a new division within ShareRing which was established to support innovative research in the related areas. This initiative is part of ShareRing’s commitment to exploring new approaches to the issuance, storage, verification and sharing of information and documents. Established in early 2018, the company has grown to become a global technology business with staff distributed in 11 countries and 5 regions around the globe. ShareRing’s origins were based in the sharing and rental economies and has evolved into a verifiable digital personal information ecosystem utilizing blockchain technology.
For this year, the grants are only available for applicants in Thailand; however, in the near future, ShareRing plans to welcome applications from Australia, Hong Kong and other ASEAN countries. Researchers and academics are invited to apply both individually and in groups, and young/early career researchers are especially welcomed. In total, three research grants will be available in 2021, with a maximum amount of 150.000 THB each. The grants will cover research projects for the period of three months, after which a report should be submitted, but all literary rights and patents will remain with the grant recipient.
Completed applications should be received by 15 December 2021. Detailed instructions as well as grant application forms are available at https://forms.gle/CJvjPfEFuwvq4o959 and http://ow.ly/Ib7I50GFh2E
ShareRing is a technology company which has created a highly secure interoperable blockchain-based ecosystem for issuing, storing, accessing and sharing verifiable personal ID’s and information. Central to establishing high trust levels is ShareRing’s encrypted self-sovereign ID solution, based on blockchain technology, creating an immutable “fingerprint” of an individual’s verifiable personal identity and documents. Self-sovereign means the individual retains full control over their own data since it resides solely on their personal device in an encrypted format, and is never stored centrally.
These features provide: security for the individual user and, confidence for the consumer of the data that the data provided has not been altered in any way since it was uploaded to the blockchain. Through the ShareRing Ecosystem, accessed via ShareRing App, ShareRing has created a number of products/solutions which digitize, streamline and radically improve processes across multiple industries and functions including health, financial services, events, travel & hospitality.
