The Business of Self-Sovereign Identity


Wednesday 4A Convener: Timothy Ruff & Steve Havas Notes-taker(s): Riley Hughes


Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:


We talked about what the business of self-sovereign identity looks like. We drew a handful of dots on the board, each one connecting to the other. Tim said something along the lines of, "When we talk about self-sovereign identity, we often think too much about the dots. When we talk about business, we need to think of the lines." We continued to talk about how having a DID relationship with another party creates a secure, encrypted, direct relationship between the parties. The question was asked, "what types of businesses become possible when you have this type of relationship?" The photos attached are the discussion that followed.
