Provo, UT, March 18, 2020—The Sovrin Foundation, an international nonprofit that administers the governance of the global Sovrin Network, is pleased to welcome Bloqzone and Dhiway into the expanding group of Sovrin Stewards.
Bloqzone and Dhiway join more than 75 organizations around the world that commit computing power and resources to the Sovrin Network. The Sovrin Network enables people and organizations to take control of their data, privacy, and security online through self-sovereign identity (SSI).
“The momentum of SSI is growing quickly, and the Sovrin Foundation is pleased to see an increasing number of companies from all around the world support the Sovrin Network and its mission,” says Phil Windley, Chair of the Sovrin Foundation Board of Trustees. “The Sovrin Foundation welcomes Dhiway and Bloqzone into the community as the network’s newest Stewards.”
Bloqzone is a Dutch startup building trusted communications solutions based on self-sovereign identity. With a background in the telecoms industry, the spin-off developed a method to ensure privacy by design in a framework for online communications. Its first services in beta include ID-Call and ID-Chat.
“Bloqzone is extremely excited to be actively supporting the Sovrin Foundation and the great cause of transparent governance in self-sovereign identity,” Alexander Blom, co-founder and CTO of Bloqzone. “As a Sovrin Steward, we intend to contribute to the global community behind the Sovrin Foundation. At the same time, we look forward to further developing our solutions for identified communications incorporating the Hyperledger open source projects on which Sovrin is built.”
Based in Bengaluru, India, Dhiway is an early-stage startup which aims to build a verifiable data exchange framework designed to enable trusted digital transactions between everyone and everything using open standards and technologies. The platform brings together two or more distinct entities and facilitates seamless digital transactions among them with instantly verifiable information exchange.
“These are exciting times for us,” says K. P. Pradeep, CEO of Dhiway. “Dhiway’s engagement with the Sovrin Foundation is a commitment towards participating in the community. We will always be available to mentor, guide, and partner with individuals and companies in this journey of enabling SSI for exchange of data over the internet.”
