What is decentralized consent?

Decentralized consent is a way for the user of any organization to give their consent to do something on their behalf, or use their data in some way, such as a payment or an onboarding, in a way that no centralized organization is in control of managing that consent, and the control is back in the user.

By minting the consent as an NFT, a consent can be traced back to the user, and no one can dispute the validity of that consent or the actions taken with it. The user can burn it at any time, or even transfer it.

Three levels of consent

In the way that we represent consent at Facenote, there are three levels of consent, three types of NFT that the user can mint.


The FaceToken NFT is an agreement between the user and Facenote, minted when the user has their face scanned to enroll on our platform. 


ConsentToken NFT is an agreement between Facenote, the user and an organization, that enables the organization to save the data provided by the user. 


ProofToken NFT represents an event, such as a payment, a login, an attendance, etc, that the user has done within an organization.
