One World Identity (OWI) is an independent advisory firm that helps business leaders, governments, and investors stay ahead of market trends. In August, OWI released its latest research on blockchain in a whitepaper titled, “Blockchain and Identity in 2018: A Year of Promise and Pilots.” The paper highlights 18 companies and organizations at the forefront of blockchain identity technologies and innovations.
The Sovrin Foundation is proud to be among the organizations included in the report. As OWI noted, “When it comes to the conceptual underpinnings of self-sovereign identity, the Sovrin Foundation (closely integrated with the Evernym team) wrote the book.”
The Sovrin Network is an open source, public-service utility built to enable self-sovereign identity. Sovrin’s infrastructure also allows users to manage identifiers, keys and credentials as a complete and easy-to-use decentralized identity system. Stewards range from governments and credit unions to companies like Cisco and IBM.
Through the Sovrin Network and the diversity of the Steward organizations acting as validator nodes, the Sovrin Foundation, said OWI, was “positing a a blockchain-enabled, consumer-centric identity landscape overhaul.”
The complete list of featured companies includes: Evernym, Hyperledger, IBM, R3, ID2020, Sovrin Foundation, Civic, BanQu, Cambridge Blockchain, ShoCard, ObjectTech, Tierion, uPort, Datum, Dominode, Pillar, Procivis, and Sphere Identity.
