Payments Company Mastercard Wants to be a Digital ID Provider

• Activist Post

The move is part of a big push to implement digital IDs.

The announcement was made by Mastercard's VP of digital identity Matt Bourne via LinkedIn.

"Last year, Mastercard announced that it had applied for accreditation under the [TDIF] in Australia for its digital identity service, ID," Bourne wrote.

"We are thrilled to share that we have now successfully secured the first of three roles we applied for, with our accreditation as an identity exchange being confirmed earlier this month."
