Digital Operator Turkcell Introduces Blockchain-applied ID Management Solution

BARCELONA, Spain–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Turkcell (NYSE: TKC) (BIST: TCELL), the world’s fastest growing digital
operator, introduced its blockchain service for international roaming at
the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019. Blockchain is a new technology
that allows organizations to collaborate in a safe environment. This
technology can be used for more secure and faster transactions in the
telecommunications industry – and Turkcell has successfully expanded the
utilization of blockchain services to the industry with roaming
clearance, ID management and donation solutions. Turkcell currently
shares its blockchain network with Lifecell and Lifecell’s Belarus-based
telecom operator partner BeST, and is in talks with study groups and
other telecom operators to further expand the network.

Personal data is safer with Blockchain-applied ID Management solution
Turkcell
is in the forefront of innovative solutions in personal privacy and data
security with blockchain technology. Existing ID Management solutions
requires users to create different accounts for different platforms or
to use personal data the user shared with third parties before. The
former requires the user to remember details of each account created,
and the latter requires the user to share personal data with a third
party not involved in the login process. Turkcell’s blockchain solution
gives the user control over personal data and ensures personal privacy
with GDPR compliant ID Management solution.
ID Management solution
stores the information required for verification of users in the
blockchain network and removes additional identity verifications – this
also enables Turkcell to provide new use-cases to enterprises.

Donations can be made over Blockchain
Turkcell’s
blockchain-enabled donation use-case incorporates ID Management solution
to verify the donation eligibility of people in need. Turkcell helps
rebuilding the trust in donation with a secure verification solution.
The solution offers an end-to-end Turkcell experience – customers can
donate via the communication and life platform BiP and use Paycell as a
payment medium.

“Customer experience remains as top priority in the design of our
services”

Turkcell Customer Experience and Information
Technologies Executive Vice President Serkan Ozturk stated that customer
experience must be in the center of technology to become a digital
operator. “Our customers demand transparency and trust in every step of
our processes. In this sense, using blockchain technology is essential
to improve customer experience of our digital services and solutions,
which remains as top priority in the design of our services. This is why
we joined the global blockchain consortium of telecom carriers, The
Carrier Blockchain Study Group (CBSG). Our blockchain solutions provide
secure digital payments, barter systems, identity verification and IoT
applications. These efforts will help us improve our digital services
and raise the bar in customer experience,” he said.
