The Everest platform provides many of the atomic tools required to develop DApps, including EverID, a biometrically based digital identity; EverWallet, a multi-currency and document storage solution; and EverChain, a high-speed distributed ledger. The Everest protocol and application programming interface (“API”) enable many functional services to be built using the same primitives used to make EverID and EverWallet. 1000 Alternatives was founded in 2018 with locations rolling out in Singapore, Kenya, Rwanda and Nigeria, and incubates, invests in and scales profitable lock-step ventures that deliver positive social impact through their products and services.
