In this webinar, we hosted our partners at cheqd for a conversation on the role of incentives in self-sovereign identity (SSI). We explored how incentives can enable trusted SSI ecosystems, a few of the business models made possible through monetary rewards, and how cheqd is building the payment rails for the authentic data economy.

About cheqd:

cheqd is building the trusted/authentic data economy. Their solution makes it easier to create authentic data ecosystems through customisable commercial models and governance structures, all built upon a public permissionless network with a dedicated token for payment.
