Humanode partners with Mintlayer to provide Sybil-resistance to its ecosystem

Layer 2 scaling solutions on the Bitcoin network have captivated the attention of the blockchain community. Among these innovators, is the latest addition to the Humanode family –  Mintlayer, which stands out with its advanced sidechain solution, aimed at revolutionizing Bitcoin DeFi through the use of its Atomic Swaps in decentralized application. This innovative platform not only aims to expand the utility of Bitcoin but also to ensure seamless interoperability and enhanced security within the ecosystem.

Recognizing the critical challenges posed by Sybil attacks in the Web3 space – where malicious entities create numerous fake identities to manipulate or destabilize networks –Humanode has joined forces with Mintlayer. Our partnership is rooted in a shared commitment to safeguarding the integrity of the blockchain community against such pervasive threats.

The core of this partnership is the integration of Humanode BotBasher – a Discord integration that links one Discord account to a unique human being using private Biometric verification – in Mintlayer’s Discord. Already compatible across platforms like Galxe, Zealy, TaskOn, and QuestN, with over 400K+ verified users on 500+ servers. BotBasher is considered a go-to option against malicious bots and multi-account holders. Through this partnership, Mintlayer plans to hold Sybil-resistance campaigns in their community as well as allowing ecosystem partners can ensure a fair and secure community.

Mintlayer plans to utilize BotBasher for Sybil-resistant future campaigns. Other than the integration of BotBasher, we plan to extend this collaboration by providing Sybil resistance to the Mintlayer ecosystem projects through private on-chain biometric verification and BotBasher. 

As we embark on this partnership, our vision is to create a more secure, inclusive, and equitable trustless world.  Together, Humanode and Mintlayer are dedicated to improving a trustless financial ecosystem, ushering in a new age of safety and new ideas that go beyond what we're used to with traditional online systems.

About Mintlayer

Mintlayer is a pioneering Bitcoin sidechain solution, dedicated to unlocking BTC for use in dApps by using Atomic Swaps to enable Bitcoin interoperability without the need for wrapped tokens.  Mintlayer's unique approach introduces unprecedented security, removing the need for intermediaries and complex mechanisms such as peg-in, wrapped, or federated tokens. This eliminates counterparty risk, reduces friction, and provides true token interoperability. 

About Humanode

Humanode is the first crypto-biometric network that provides Sybil resistance to Web3 projects using private facial recognition. It can prove that one person has only one address or one account in a certain context. With no KYC needed or personally identifiable information collected, the process takes around 1 minute. Humanode is an EVM-compatible Layer-1 based on one person = one node = one vote principle.
