Why did we invent, build, and open source an entirely new distributed ledger that’s engineered for the sole purpose of identity? That’s easy. It’s the only way to finally do identity right.
Digital identity today is entirely “siloed.” It forces every organization to become identity (and security) experts in order to know who (or what) they’re actually interacting with, both online and off. Managing many identities is not only an expensive hassle for organizations, it’s aggravating for people and a security nightmare for the Internet of Things, too.
Evernym has developed the world’s first publicly available distributed ledger dedicated to solving this problem – Sovrin – and we’ve donated its code to Hyperledger (project Indy), making it available for everyone, everywhere.
