The DigitalTown API provides the ability to manage Verified Digital Identities, a Smart Wallet, Local Search and Local Delivery with much more on the way.
Verified Digital IdentityServes as a single-sign-on for the world. It is the foundation of the SmartWeb and serves as the key to the emerging Internet of People (IoP). Through the DigitalTown Smart City platform every legal resident, and every licensed business, is able to secure to a unique, verified and permanent online digital identity that is linked to the city in which they currently reside. This identity allows users to sign onto any DigitalTown-accredited Smart City platform as well as range of Mobile Apps and Websites that have been built using the DigitalTown API. Along the way, it will allow them to be known individuals and to build and use their portable digital reputation.
Smart WalletSupports the sharing economy by allowing members to transfer money quickly and securely in multiple currencies and at no cost. Rather than see funds bleed out of the local economy through payment processing fees, with the SmartWallet, peer payments are instant and free. Merchants can also securely use centralized payment processing and access funds upon completing their transactions. The SmartWallet is also the repository for personalization attributes such as your user profile, dietary preferences, location, personal interests, as well as reputation and external payment methods.
Local SearchMeans Local Restaurants, Hotels, Events and Attractions - ensuring local business and services are promoted ahead of global organizations. Radial search also returns generic search results from the Bing API,making it easy to build applications that provide local information for local applications.
So, get creative. It is has never been easier to build solutions for making your city smart! And if you have an idea for a Local API that you would like to see added, or want to co-create, contact us.
