Digital IDs: what are the current pain points on the continent and what role do ID proxies play in overcoming the gaps?
2 p.m. (SAST) South Africa, Thursday, 23rd of April, 2020
Cenfri conducted a study on the use of proxy identifiers in payments systems in South Africa in 2019. We investigated how proxy IDs can be linked to the South African ID and corresponding bank account and how this could enable faster, more effective payments within the market. The research revealed various insights around the effectiveness of certain proxy IDs vis-à-vis other proxy identifiers, as well as how the South African market might be able to effectively implement proxy ID into its payment system.
For this webinar, there will be a specific focus on the concept of proxy IDs and how they can be used to overcome pain points in digital ID and payments across Africa. We will also discuss how proxy IDs can enhance the overall ecosystem for service delivery across the continent.
