Civic is a cryptocurrency which aims to give businesses and individuals the tools to control and protect identities. On February 6 Civic has announced its partnership with Helbiz, which is a peer-to-peer marketplace that has a purpose to make renting a car, motorcycle or bicycle convenient, affordable, instant and rewarding.

The partnership was made in order to ensure that the vehicle owner and customer reputation will be protected by Civic’s technology for identity and verification, as Civic should enable verified profiles in the Helbiz network for onboarding customers.

Verification is a crucial part of the Helbiz business model and we will use Civic to ensure customer identity verification, security and privacy as we launch the Helbiz Mobility Platform.
