2018 was the year of Identity. Governments started developing blockchain-based national ID systems, banks started looking at KYC, healthcare industry dived into Electronic Healthcare records. It is now time to take a step back and ask: Where are we with Identity? This panel will look at the work of building the network, how it's governed, and the role of open source ledger code in its success. We will look at common use cases and impact digital identity can have on the developing world, from refugees and disaster victims to programs that have a global impact. We will discuss how self-sovereign identity can improve the KYC process, allowing any user to reuse his previously verified credential for multiple authentications. But lets also see where can we find interesting applications of identity - like e-commerce.
