What’s the business case for self-sovereign identity?

In a world increasingly plagued by fraud, data breaches, and identity theft, self-sovereign identity offers an opportunity to promote data privacy by giving the Internet something it’s never had before - a built-in identity layer.

Evernym is a consulting company that helped develop and standardize decentralized identifiers (DIDs) with a grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and launch the Sovrin Network, a public utility for self-sovereign identity.

Seth’s writing provided insight into the opportunities associated with the application of self-sovereign identity in industries like healthcare, insurance, and finance.
