Ontology, a developer of self-sovereign identification systems on the blockchain, announced a partnership with decentralized mobility platform bloXmove on Tuesday morning in a bid to accelerate the development of its decentralized credentials.

Simple smart contracts would not suffice in processing, for example, where a decentralized insurance underwriter covers a user’s claim for medical costs at a hospital.
Ontology would be able to automate and secure settlements via bloXmove’s BLMX token. At the same time, bloXmove can achieve
