Issue credentials on the Sovrin Network!
Businesses, governments and other organizations with Sovrin-based use cases currently in development may now write to the Sovrin Public Ledger and begin issuing as many self-sovereign identity credentials as they desire. Simply use the webform below to begin the process of becoming a Sovrin Transaction Endorser. The Sovrin Foundation charges a small fee (see table below) for writing to the public ledger but does not charge for the act of issuing a credential– issuing credentials on Sovrin is FREE.
To learn more about how the Sovrin Ledger enables credential issuance and exchange, and what goes on the ledger, check out our library.
Wondering what to write?
Public DIDs are needed first and foremost by issuers of credentials. They are stored on the Sovrin Public Ledger so that a verifier who receives proof of any credentials is able to look up the public key of the issuer in order to validate the proof.
|DID Write (for Credential Issuers)||$10|
|DIDs for Individuals (Peer DIDs)||Free|
*Fees table current as of March 14, 2019 and are subject to change based on advice from the Sovrin Economic Advisory Council.

“It’s difficult to overstate what self-sovereign identity means for the future of the Internet. This is the beginning of the end for the profile and password as a way of accessing and purchasing goods and services online. Digital identity has long been the weak link on the Internet, as there is no reliable, efficient, and secure way to prove that you are who you say you are. The Sovrin Network changes all of this. We are excited to see the many current use cases in development to now become commercial realities.”
