Decentralized Identity is more than verifying the identity of an individual. At its essence, this technology is most valuable when it is used to identify the trustworthiness of any given data point by virtue of its authenticity and integrity. By deploying verifiable credentials in a Trusted Digital Ecosystem, businesses, the public sector, and even entire industries now have the ability to positively identify and repeatedly verify any given data point using the inherent trust and immutability of the blockchain ledger. Join Heather Dahl as she looks at the evolution of this rapidly advancing landscape and how it is uprooting the traditional view of digital identity.
