Blockchain-based self-sovereign identity (SSI) to help stop the spread of COVID-19 without compromising the privacy of users
Togheter with many important organizations in the SSI space are participating, such as Evernym, Streetcred, esatus, TNO, Georgetown University and others, we are working to deploy digital certificates, using the recently approved World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Verifiable Credentials standard, to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and enable society to return to ‘normal’ in a controlled, measurable, and privacy-preserving way.
The initiative is a direct response to the many calls for an ‘immunity passport,’ a digital certificate that lets individuals prove (and request proof from others) that they’ve recovered after testing negative, have tested positive for antibodies, or have received a vaccination, once one is available. By proving some level of immunity, individuals will be able to begin participating in everyday life again.
