Let’s talk about digital identity with Sid Desai, Director at REMME.
In episode 19, Oscar talks to Sid about what exactly a decentralised ID is, its benefits, use cases and open standards such as the Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) specification from W3C. They also discuss how decentralised identity will develop in the coming years, and why REMME is building a decentralised model of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).
“Blockchain replaces traditional ‘trust by authority’ with ‘trust by computation’.”
