1/ I can't believe it's been this 3 years already. the @uport_me team won a prize after launching the first version of our Self Sovereign Identity wallet at DevCon2 on #ethereum complete with social recovery using proxy contracts, wallet connect like QR codes and gas funding.
2/ Our focus is still on Self Sovereign Identity for #ethereum, but we've learnt so much since our first experiment back then.

Here is a diagram of our original architecture...
3/ Most importantly the key to safely build #identity on a blockchain is to actually use as the #blockchain as little as possible.

Ideally a good identity solution for blockchain applications provides an off-chain method of linking together on-chain interactions.

The question for the #ethereum community is, how do we do #defi without creating another ICO boom and bust like #YOLO situation... IMO the main cause of current eth/btc price being out of whack with the immense technical progress in and around eth over the last two years.
#bitcoin is overpriced because there's been very little technological progress. But finance isn't just about technology. It's also about trust. #bitcoin is overpriced vs better tech including #ethereum BECAUSE nothing changes, same as the UK and US high street banks.
Finance isn't the best space to move fast and break things. Alright it isn't health care or space flights and #innovation is never risk free but its important for the community to call out things that don't make sense

Introducing my #the100dayproject inspired by @QMUNITY and my fellow #ADE @Sharon_Drummond. 100 days, 100 GIFs, 100 queer terms to educate and connect our community and allies. All GIFs created with #AppleKeynote and will be compiled on @GIPHY : giphy.com/channel/joepau… @AppleEDU
Day 1: QUEER - widely used among the community to refer to the spectrum of non-heterosexual +/ non-cisgender ppl as a shorthand. Important - this is RECLAIMED language that was/is still used as a hate term. #pride #education @QMUNITY @sogiUBC Follow along ———> #100daysofQueer
DAY 2: HETERONORMATIVE - social roles & structures that reinforce idea that heterosexuality is the presumed norm and is superior to other sexual orientations. #pride #education #sogi #humanrights @QMUNITY @sogiUBC @HRC

Follow along —-> #100daysofQueer created on #AppleKeynote

Not a reader of @NicholasSparks but have watched several of his books as movies.

Tearjerkers for sure.

I'm a gay man that lived a life of fear, isolation, and quiet desperation from my early years on.
I probably would have benefited from a club that existed to say, "Whatever I might think about your sexual orientation, you deserve to be safe and free from fear in life."

And, honestly, I think that is what, in particular, Gay Straight Alliance Clubs are about.
Today, in schools that receive federal funds and that have a club forum or offer an opportunity for political, religious, or philosophical groups, formed by students, to meet, a rule prohibiting such #LGBTQIA clubs would violate the #EAA, the Equal Access Act.

An often misunderstood element of the next generation of credential based digital #identity systems is that they are no longer reliant on any single issuer being trustworthy. 1/n
Rather, they rely the combination of many issuers, and many #verifiableclaims in order to create a reliable web of trust. As with any network, this ability to establish trust between peers scales exponentially with the relationships inside it. 2/n
This network effect fundamentally shifts the power balance from centralized issuers, or federated identity managers, towards individual ID holders. The trade-off here is 1) the ease of #compliance and 2) #automation of services across contexts in an ever expanding ecosystem. 3/n

0/ 'Twas very much 'M&A Mondays' in the #crypto/#blockchain space, with not one, not two, but *three* announcements revealing the coming together of two previously discrete projects.

A heap of other developments took place on Monday, too, so let's get into it, shall we?
1/ 🐱 @Efolioapp - a P2P marketplace to buy and sell #crypto tokens - unveiled its solution that brings English auctions (as distinct from Dutch auctions) to @0xProject [ $ZRX ]!

Bid for NFTs with either an #ERC20- and #ERC721-compliant token. Neat! medium.com/@emoonmarket/0…
2/ 📣 Per @Cheddar, Facebook hired most of the @Chainspace_io team; its first major 'acqui-hire’ in the #crypto space.

Who is Chainspace? A #blockchain startup self-described as "a planetary scale smart contracts platform." cheddar.com/videos/faceboo…

Today, in the second part of my short series, I've posted about how I came to see that the NT authors understood the freedom of the gender binary and applied it in their approach to masculinity - The Bible and the Binary (Part One) thinktheology.co.uk/blog/article/t… #gender @thinktheology
So if the NT authors embraced the freedom of the gender binary, does that mean that men and women can live in exactly the same way? I don't think so. Today I explore what the NT says about how we should express our gender identity.

Today I'm continuing to explore the freedom of the gender binary, now considering some of the practical implications relevant to all of us: 'The Freedom of the Gender Binary in Action' thinktheology.co.uk/blog/article/t… #identity via @thinktheology

Prime example of how #MindVirus works. It's all tied up with #Identity & #Tribalism & the basic human need to be part of a community. Once you belong, your #LizardBrain is primed to defend the system out of fear. Threaten the thought system, threaten the identity /1 #Exvangelical
When I look at the #Exvangelical phenomena, I see #SocialEvolution at work. Driven by a group of individuals who've reached a level of #personaldevelopment that allows them to become objective of former thought systems & their limitations. The old beliefs now seen as harmful. /2
The former beliefs & thought system becomes "ego alien" which results in resistance in many ways. Anger being prominent, but many feel a need to change the old system. They feel an empathy for those still ensnared in limiting, harmful beliefs. They try to reach out only to find/3

Thanks @Buttarelli_G for this Op-Ed: "Big tech is still violating your #privacy" The "take-it-or-leave it" 'consent' approach shows how strongly network effects lock-in people washingtonpost.com/news/theworldp…
to the incumbent platforms. It's a paradox that the Founding Fathers in the US were fearful of accumulation of power in government but that recent successive governments have let the accumulation of power in Big Tech unchecked supposedly on the belief that competition would keep
actors in check. When #data is increasingly perceived as being an essential facility for a at least number of sectors and its dominant players, it is consequently challenging to build a service which provides the choices that competitive markets are meant to provide when

Now that the lawyers have run their marathon and we wait for the top court to rule, a small personal diary note thread on #Aadhaar & me.

Huge thanks to community of people who have widened my wisdom of how society works. Fellow helpless people helping each other.
It started sometime in 2011, when I knew nothing, enrolled along with family.But our enrollment packets were lost, EID wasnt even searchable. I did write some emails to support, but yielded nothing more than, please enroll again. As the need wasn't real, did not enroll.
Parents gave up at a later date, enrolled, got UID successfully generated. I resisted, mostly because of laziness, but did not have developed trust enough to enroll. On random browsing sessions, have heard Usha Ramanathan on YouTube, but never took deep dive into issues.

#ReadTheThread. Ten things every Hindu can do!
I keep getting asked, ‘what can we, ordinary Hindus do for the Dharma?’

I am no expert on Dharma, but here are ten easy steps we can all take at our individual levels to assert our identity as Hindus. #Hindu #Identity #HinduPride
1) Tell your kids or nephews or nieces, or kids you know stories from our history and religion. Buy them Indic books. Take them to see Hindu temple architecture, and when they ask you, pointing at a vandalised Murti, ‘what happened here’? Tell them the truth, with the names!
2) Have a Pooja corner in your house. Have a regular ritual. Light a lamp. Make children pray before they set out for school. Just a simple chanting of a few shlokas is enough to keep them connected if you do it on a daily bases. Visit a temple on festivals or on their birthday.

The current dialogue about #DACA affects everyone in the US. How?

#Racism & #scapegoating & affect all minorities.

Deporting #DREAMers & undocumented #immigrants will have very negative impacts to the #economy. That affects everyone else. THREAD 1 #DreamActNow #immigration
The sociological concept of the “other” is important to this discussion. If you haven’t heard of it before, here is a brief overview from othersociologist.com/otherness-reso…. 2 #identity #race #sociology #Science
People in power define social identities as they have the means to control the narrative – news coverage, platforms to broadcast their platforms, & the power to influence law enforcement and legislation. Social identity affects how people perceive themselves and others. 3
