KYC usecase

+1 vote
What could be the best way to model KYC usecase using multichain? In KYC, typically you keep the details of the customer which different entities can use for verification.

1. What could be the best way of creating this customer database - creating an asset for each customer?

2. Since blockchain doesn't allow updates, how to update information related to the customer - like address change?

For now you could simulate this with either quasi-streams:

Or by using an asset (with zero asset units created) to represent each customer, and performing a follow-on issuance for each update of that user's details. (Use listassets with verbose=true to see the full history of a particular asset.)

We are currently laying the architectural foundations for a new set of "streams" APIs which will work as a more natural abstraction for this use case, but hopefully the above will let you get started.
