Blockchain, with its encrypted and immutable record, will eventually be used create universal digital identities, filled with information that only we will control and that will link back to the issuing banks, governments or even employers.
Actually getting self-sovereign identity to work is what we like to call a wicked hard problem – and in reality, it’s several wicked hard problems rolled into one. Wicked hard, perhaps – but there’s no question that we need to solve this problem, and solve it fast.
With cell phones and blockchain technology, the creation of a self sovereign identity becomes a reality which individuals can control themselves.
