Decentralized Identity

Current digital identity systems are often closed-source, not interoperable, and highly centralised. This leads to a multitude of authentication methods as well as potential data leaks. In decentralized or self-sovereign identity systems, control is shifted to the data subject. The citizen is in charge, not the government, the client not the company, the patient not the healthcare provider. Decentralized identity enables exchange of verifiable credentials while maintaining privacy by design, data minimization and even zero knowledge proofs.
