Excited about Self-Sovereign Identity

Recently I had the awesome privilege to write an article for OfferZen  about Why I’m excited about Self-Sovereign Identity. It was an opportunity to express my understanding about Self-Sovereign Identity and all the related aspects in the SSI space.

For about 6 months I have been working at Trustlab.tech, at first hoping to work with smart contracts and anything related to development around Ethereum and Tendermint. Little was I to know how much more there was.

There are so many aspects to Blockchain development that is not strictly blockchain, and this is so true for developing in the Self-Sovereign Identity space. Sure there are Smart Contract for many of the identity systems, but the one I am most interested in is Sovrin (Hyperledger Indy) there is even less so because there is not much that gets put onto the Ledger.

So here I am learning about credentials, claims, proofs, zero knowledge proofs, revocation, etc etc. Best of all is interacting in this space with all kinds of people all over the world. Hardly a week goes by where I have not had some zoom call with like minded people participating in the SSI space.

Just watch this space!

There are going to some really cool apps, use-cases and services coming.
