Identifying, Enabling and Empowering Everyone
Bluenumbers uniquely identify people, organisations, places and things anywhere on Earth. Governments and businesses use bluenumbers to make policy and procurement decisions. NGOs and communities design targeted sustainability initiatives. Bluenumbers can show who produced the food for your table, made your clothes, or mined the metal for components in your phone or laptop.
Why do we need a global, neutral ID?
Communities, organisations and governments are collectives of individuals. A global and neutral ID overcomes the social legacy of hierarchy, clans and castes from feudal and industrial times when people were not recognised as individuals. The identity of refugees, forced laborers, farmers and workers are buried under layers of bureaucracy and resistance to knowing. Global neutral IDs are an urgently needed disruptive infrastructure that is today finally possible because of mobile phones and the Internet.
1.5 billion people do not have any form of officially recognised identification. They cannot open a bank account, qualify for welfare or benefit from training. They cannot prove who they are or identify their assets like land or inventory and so do not receive the support they need.
Siloes of data in companies, governments and NGOs does not help in solving global systemic problems. Shared data can give insights into managing epidemics, halting global warming and ending modern slavery.
What is a bluenumber?
A bluenumber is a unique number that identifies people, organisations, places and things. This means that any person anywhere on the planet now has a digital identity and can connect it to other systems and organisations to be recognised and access services and benefits.
Unique & Universal Identification
A bluenumber is unique because each bluenumber references only one specific entity. It is universal because it can identify people, organisations, places or things that make up complex systems.
Accessible by All
Bluenumbers are always free of charge for registration. There are no financial barriers to receive a bluenumber. Bluenumbers do not discriminate for any reason.
Unbiased Indexing Between Systems
Bluenumbers can be a reference key for the same entity across any data system. Bluenumber is an enabler – not a gateway – for free data exchange between users based on their own permissions.
