The Proof of Uniqueness achieves the Proof of Personhood by combining Biometric Technologies and Identification Parties.
Once an individual performs the biometric procedure, his wallet starts receiving Human Coins in locked mode.
The online biometric identification makes the system fully distributed and censorship-free because everybody on the planet can access our technology and start accumulating Human Coins.
The second phase of the protocol is the attendance to an identification party. This requirement rules out the possibility of biometric attacks, or spoof identities, and therefore makes the system fully secure and accountable in time. Identification parties are organised in a decentralised way by the code, there is no central entity or discretion in the organisation of the parties.
The PoU network not only is run by individuals but also offers opportunities to all: run a node, acquire users, host an identification party to earn more coins and make your contribution.
The PoU has no pre-mining and distributes the whole value created to its participants.
