Nuggets selected as a finalist for MoneyAge and Payments Awards
Blockchain-enabled payments and ID platform Nuggets has been selected as a finalist in the MoneyAge Awards and has also been shortlisted for three Payments Awards.
Nuggets is up against HSBC and Mastercard in the Payments Award for ‘Best Use of Biometrics’. The start-up has also been shortlisted in the Payments Awards ‘Anti-Fraud or Security Solution of the Year – Consumer’ and ‘Blockchain Initiative of the Year’ categories. In the MoneyAge Awards, the company is shortlisted alongside an RBS team for ‘Innovation in Consumer Finance’.
“It’s great to be recognised by MoneyAge and Payments in this way,” commented Alastair Johnson, CEO and Founder of Nuggets, “especially as this puts us on a par with market-leading global companies like HSBC, Mastercard and RBS. Being shortlisted against companies with far greater resources is powerful proof from independent experts that we can deliver a long-overdue revolution in digital payments.”
Nuggets offers users a single biometric tool for login, payment and identity verification without sharing or storing personal data. Nuggets keeps users’ data secure in the blockchain making transactions simpler and safer.
The MoneyAge Awards winners will be announced at a celebratory gala dinner in October and the Payments Awards winner will be announced at a similar event in November.
Johnson recently contributed a guest post to BiometricUpdate.com that discussed how biometrics and blockchain can beat credit card fraudsters.
