rLogin allows web application developers to integrate blockchain technologies giving the user the power of data portability. After integrating rLogin you achieve:
The most recent FATF updated draft guidance from March 2021 introduces significant changes to the legal definition of DeFi platforms, expanding the types of entities that fall under FATF’s umbrella. In this guidance, FATF defines most operators of decentralized finance platforms as “Virtual Asset Service Providers” that have AML/CFT obligations.
@ilanolkies shares: Okey, so, today I mapped the work done in the last 3 month by @rif_os about Self-Sovereign Identity protocols in a single link https://github.com/rsksmart/rif-identity. All compatible with existent protocols and fully integrated into @RSKsmart blockchain. The future is one step closer.
The Credential Schema is a document that is used to guarantee the structure, and by
When “leased out”, the other party can access your personal data — in this manner, the NFMe ID acts as an “authorization key” that allows third parties to use your data in a fair way to generate a shared value between the third party and the owner of the data.

Julian describes digi.me’s mission of empowering people with their personal data, as individuals know where all their data is, while they also have “a right for that data”. By having that knowledge and ownership, only individuals have “unlimited usage rights” to unlock the potential data has to be a force for good.
Key findings from the report are:
“When building product-market-fit for our platform, we listened constantly to frustrated customers who embraced the concept of SSI, Verifiable Credentials and Blockchains, but who gave up on piecemealing a solution. And the reasons were mostly due to the lack of specialized SSI developers, implementing complex SDK’s and code builds, and trying to provision onto blockchain networks,”

As for the near future, Fujitsu envisions enhancing the distributed identity, data privacy, and consent management platform, which would open up all of the benefits described in this article on an as-a-Service basis to any player.
To resolve the complications, Fujitsu says it collaborated with the Keio Research Institute at SFC on a digital identity technology in September 2021, which resulted in an identity conversion gateway that enables multiple identity infrastructures to be interconnected without using a unified protocol.
Now, we’re making Civic Pass available to developers everywhere. The idea is that developers can plug Civic Pass into their platform and create an identity layer that allows for a permissioned dApp platform, be it a DEX, an NFT marketplace or mint, a metaverse, or who knows what else you’ll come up with.

5 years after establishing Decentralized Identity at Microsoft, where I had the opportunity to work with great folks developing open source DID infrastructure (e.g. ION), standards, and products, I am joining Square to lead Decentralized Identity.
At Authenteq, we spend a lot of time thinking and talking about how to make the internet a safer space. It’s also what drives our product roadmap and why we got into identity verification and e-KYC in the first place. As we work to democratize the knowledge we have access to, we know that for it to be truly accessible, we have to work with different formats. This is why we’re very excited to introduce the brand spanking new Identity Masters podcast now available on Spotify!
Self-sovereign objects are are self-executing and self-owning; capable of determining their own lifecycle to maximise material utility and performance whilst minimizing negative environmental impacts. Augmented by sensing capabilities and the ability to autonomously execute smart contracts, material objects could continuously monitor their own performance and contract for their maintenance, repair or recycling.
Tuum Tech is working on an Elastos DID-based application called Profile, a rising competitor to LinkedIn – in large part by leveraging Elastos DIDs. Unlike in conventional applications where data and identities are managed and controlled by centralized systems, users will retain full ownership of their data when using Profile.
If you are looking for an alternative to Facebook that uses DIDs as its foundation and other protocols that are free to use (JLINC Kaliya highly recommend Tru.net

BSN aggregates their technology partners’ services into their cloud-based ecosystem to make them all accessible to any company or developer that wishes to use them, with very low monthly access fees starting at just $20. Their “plug and play” approach eliminates the need for hiring or outsourcing highly specialized developers, who are in short supply due to high demand in this industry.
One of the most exciting benefits of ShareRing’s integration with BSN’s global ecosystem is how effortless it will be for companies to incorporate our products and services without requiring ShareRing’s assistance with development and integration.

Other features include DAuth-based authentication, single-sign on (SSO), and an agent ID service capable of handling the management of and security between credential issuers and verifiers.
Bosch will now also systematically transfer the self-sovereign identity (SSI) principle to the B2B sector – in other words to business relationships between companies. A further step will involve transferring it to secure and trustworthy interactions between machines.
Bosch researcher Christian Borman explains how SSI will not only increase privacy but also have a positive impact on B2B interactions and supply chain management. Meanwhile, Geoff meets mentalist Thorsten Havener. Will he reveal Geoff’s true identity?
