When I was first learning the freelance writing market, a number of clients hired me to write and research blockchain id. One had me write higher level introductory pieces for developers, to be included as part of their training courses for various Hyperledger and other blockchain training. Indy was one that really captured my interest.

Over a few months worth of gigs, I had amassed quite a collection of information related to decentralized identity efforts. Around November, started building infominer33/awesome-decentralized-id, inspired by the awesome lists.

Decentralized-ID has become a passion, but so has publishing content via GitHub pages. DIDecentralized is my most highly developed research project, to-date. I will continue to build and try new ways of sharing diverse related information.

Today, we are closer than ever to a human first approach to identification online.

This sector has also exploded over its potential as a breakthrough application for blockchain, beyond currency. Efforts to create a decentralized identity layer for the internet have persevered since the early 2000’s, experiencing surge of energy with the rise of Bitcoin, the GDPR, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for all to have legal id by 2030. Plus.. Canadian governments are using a distributed ledger for their business registry, which will support a ton of useful technologies!!!!

Decentralized ID - Featured

DIDecentral, (formerly infominer33/awesome-decentralized-id) was originally created on November 11, 2018.

That’s also when I began learning to use GitHub and Git.

Identosphere - Planet Identity Reboot

This project was inspired by the original planetidentity.org Identity Management feed aggregator.

  • Planet (Software)

    In online media a planet is a feed aggregator application designed to collect posts from the weblogs of members of an internet community and display them on a single page.

The Pluto feed-reader is pretty awesome, and makes building webpages with rss feeds a lot of fun.
