Self Sovereign Identity (SSI)

In a nutshell, Self-Sovereign Identity allows individuals to manage their own identities by moving physical credentials to digital devices. An individual will receive a credential from an issuer which will be stored in their digital wallet.

A provably secure version, called BBS+, was then devised by Au, Susilo, and Mu (SCN ’...

Bitcoin and Self Sovereign Identity (ION + BTCR)

ION does not rely on centralized entities, trusted validators, or special protocol tokens – ION answers to no one but you, the community. Because ION is an open, permissionless system, anyone can run an ION node, in fact the more nodes in operation, the stronger the network becomes.
