Ancient8 and Clique Collaborate for a future with more data-rich smart contracts
Clique is now building on Ancient8

In a collaborative effort, we officially partnered with Clique, working together to improve how identities are verified in blockchain gaming. Clique, an innovator in identity oracles, offers a unique solution that verifies off-chain user behavior and identity data before securely integrating them into on-chain contracts. Their technology supports data retrieval from web2 servers and facilitates secure, privacy-preserving attestation creation and off-chain Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs).

Our strategic partnership with Clique aims to integrate their advanced identity verification solutions into the Ancient8 Testnet, contributing to a more secure and trustworthy environment for blockchain gaming.

A Closer Look into Clique

In blockchain technology, Clique stands out as a trailblazer in developing identity oracles that not only verify the provenance of off-chain user behavior and identity data but also perform computations on top of it. 

These oracles, equipped with zero-knowledge proofs, SGX attestations, and notarization documents, provide a secure foundation for on-chain contracts. Clique's focus on identity attestation and off-chain Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) introduces a revolutionary approach to user data privacy.

Identity Attestations and Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs)

Clique's identity oracles facilitate the creation of both on-chain attestations and off-chain Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) verifiable credentials. These attestations cover a wide range of user data, prioritizing trust minimization and privacy preservation. The ability to interlink attestations constructs intricate graphs, enhancing verifiable credibility and reputation within the network. With meticulous attention to attestation metadata, Clique ensures additional context, providing a comprehensive yet privacy-focused identity management solution.

Decentralized Social

Clique's identity oracles extend their transformative capabilities to decentralized social platforms. By enabling users to verify and share social metrics without compromising privacy, Clique addresses the issues of centralized governance, opaque data practices, and difficulties in transferring profiles and reputations across platforms. The technology not only facilitates user transition between platforms but also empowers platforms with robust and transparent social reputation systems, resistant to fraud and manipulation.

Gaming

In the gaming industry, Clique's identity oracles revolutionize the sharing and verification of gaming data from major platforms. By providing a decentralized framework for players to consent to share specific gaming data securely and privately, Clique ensures data integrity and user privacy. Game developers and marketers gain access to reliable, consent-based data, enhancing the accuracy of crucial metrics like Lifetime Value (LTV) and Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC). Clique's technology contributes to a more nuanced view of players' interactions, fostering trust and optimizing gaming experiences.
