As a steward, ID Crypt Global commits computing power and resources to the Sovrin Network, operating nodes that form the worlds largest decentralized identity network. Strict governance ensures that the Sovrin network is the network of trust and as such, Stewards form an integral part and provide a key role in forming that trust network.

“We believe the need for digital identities that can be trusted by all industries, including those that are highly regulated such as financial services, is a key step forward in building the internet of value. With true digital identities we can empower the next generation of user experiences within those industries.” said Lauren Wilson-Smith, CEO of ID Crypt Global. “Building trust takes a massive community effort, something the Sovrin foundation has been championing for many years. We are excited to be an integral part of the community, ensuring that we can all trust the infrastructure in which self-sovereign identity depends upon.”

ID Crypt Global joins more than 75 organisations around the world that form part of the Sovrin Network.

  1. I have been following digital identity for a while, and have been hoping to see digital identity being used more online this year. I think once I can open a bank account with my ID, it will start to become more widely available with other online type services.
