Alright, here's my tl;dr thread on the extremely bullish latest Partnerships meeting with the $CHEQ team.

If you don't know them yet, well done on finding this thread. They are a #cosmos project focused on #DigitalID, like #PolygonID or #worldcoin (but way less dystopian. Image
The recent meeting was held with Head of Partnerships Tobias Halloran and @OfMiklos - a $QNT legend who truly gets the $CHEQ value proposition.
@cheqd_io are a #DiD project focused on creating #TrustedDataMarkets - that is, creating a way to monetize the enforced changes being brought in by the EU's #eIDAS legislation.
The new model of #DigitalID mandates the use of data wallets in which users maintain their control. Image

"Le coronavirus se propage dans l'air.
Nous devons garantir un air pur intérieur"

*soutenu par l'association médicale danoise

"Ensuite, nous nous débarrassons également d'autres infections et obtenons un meilleur climat intérieur. Parmi les experts figurent à la fois le directeur général et l'ancien directeur professionnel de SSI."

I think at large people are missing the significance of a #web3 #wallet beyond just #hodling your favourite #Crypto #Cryptocurency token.

Maybe the same way they effortlessly think about using the #chrome browser.

They are both portals for the #WWW and #Web3 respectively
There are new functionalities being added to #web3 wallets to exist as wallets to hold your #credentials for zero knowledge #authentication.

This wallet market is going to be worth a whopper of a predicted $7 trillion market by 2027 alone.
One of the most significant comments on this movement is from the creation of the open source Open Wallet Foundation via Linux, which has been noted as potentially more significant than #Linux itself!!!!!

The FUTURE of digital identity management is here 💫🪪

Introducing #PolygonID, a decentralized and privacy-preserving solution for SSI in #Web3. Polygon ID implements the Iden3 protocol and is built to overcome challenges in SSI adoption.
The internet was built without an identity layer, leading to reliance on centralized platforms that exploit personal data. The Self-Sovereign Identity (#SSI) movement aims to change that by giving users control over their personal data.
The SSI ecosystem is composed of Issuers, Identity Holders, and Verifiers. Decentralized Identifiers (#DIDs) and Verifiable Credentials have become the industry standard for SSI, with over 100 DID methods registered.

[1/12] To understand what else is needed to create a financial future based on #blockchain technology, just consider what the #Interledger #Protocol was NOT designed to do. 😉

[A #Thread 🧵] Source:
[2/12] 🤔 What problem does #ILP genuinely address?

Just like the #internet will never agree on a single #protocol to fix everything, the world will never agree on a single #blockchain or ledger [#DLT].

What must be resolved is:
🔹 Addressing
🔹 Fragmentation The Interledger
[3/12] ❗️ To make it easy and #ELI5-friendly here is everything in one picture:

When Alice wants to send money to @bob_way, #ILP will perform all the heavy lifting so she doesn't have to worry about #wallet addresses (#PubKeys) and the like. Source:

Das @BSI_Bund hat zum 1. Mal in seiner Geschichte eine Chefin! Herzlichen Glückwunsch an #ClaudiaPlattner (bisher CIO der EZB, davor CIO DBSystel), die Beweis dafür ist, dass man hochqualifizierte Frauen findet, in jedem Fachgebiet, wenn man es wirklich will. /1
Ich wünsche #ClaudiaPlattner im neuen Amt von Herzen viel Erfolg und bin schon sehr gespannt auf einen Kennenlerntermin im #Digitalausschuss des Bundestages. Ihre Aufgabe ist komplex, die Herausforderung groß, sowohl wg internat. als auch wg. nat. Rahmenbedingungen./2
#ClaudiaPlattner muss es schaffen, das @BSI_Bund in eine stärkere Unabhängigkeit vom @BMI_Bund zu führen u die Behörde als potenzielle Zentralstelle auszurichten, die Länder dabei ins Boot zu holen, um zB Kommunen besser unterstützen zu können. Das ist ein sehr dickes Brett./3

#DigitalID is the sleeping giant that everyone is ignoring. The coming year will be huge for the #SSI industry in terms of regulation and industry development and $cheq will be right in the middle of it.

A 🧵.

#cheqdpitch #cosmos #cosmosecosystem #100xGems
The way our data is handled is broken. Companies are incentivised to keep hold of your data, selling it or looking after it poorly. This can change. Enter #SelfSovereignIdentity, or #SSI - a new way for users to hold their own data.
Instead of companies holding your data, YOU own your own data and only supply what is needed to prove who you are.

Trusted institutions sign 'Verifiable Credentials' to show your data is trusted.

But companies make money with your data. Why would they change? Enter $cheq

Here goes my attempt at being a threadoooor for @cheqd_io (ticker: $cheq). A 🧵

So what is #cheqd and why should it excite you?
It's become a commonly known truth that in the age of Web2 - WE are the product. Our data is held by companies the companies we interact with online, ostensibly for KYC purposes.

It's expensive to hold and keep secure and makes for crappy UX for users.
This data is often misused, sold or simply lost by the companies holding it, creating huge issues for users

Yesterday, Congress finally passed the must-pass, end-of-year budget bill. As usual, the bill was stalled to the last moment, so Congressjerks could cram the 4,000-page, $1.7 trillion package with special favors for their donors, at the expense of the rest of the country. 1/ A living room scene, featuring a sofa in the background and

Hearing about cheqd for the first time? 🤔

Want to know more about what we are and what we do? 💡

Well, here are the details in a 🧵

For starters, we're building commercial models and trusted data marketplaces using #selfsovereignidentity #SSI, to allow you to take control of your data and #identity. 🆔

SSI is a form of digital identity / decentralised identity that allows you to have control over what you share, and when to revoke it. #decentralizedid

This is a solid blog post on the identity crisis #SSI industry itself faces, from @rileyphughes. 👌🏾 (Discussion on that thread is very valuable too, for different perspectives.)

It's a challenge we've been mulling over @cheqd_io as well. Some of my own thoughts below (unordered)
1️⃣ "IDtech" is overly-broad. It covers what we know as "self-sovereign identity", "SSI", or "Web5"...but it *also* covers traditional selfie-scan-check (e.g., Onfido, Jumio), single sign-on (e.g., Auth0, Okta, Microsoft AD).
The concept of "identity providers" or "identity & access management" is *too* strongly entrenched in the minds of this corner of tech industry as relating to authentication + authorisation.

We need a more *precise* term than IDtech to distinguish it from the broad idea of IAM.

It's time to talk about trust.

If Cosmos is the internet of blockchains, then Cheqd is the internet of trust.

But what is Cheqd?

How does it work?

And why is it key for #Web3 to become a reality?

A 🧵👇

$CHEQ @cheqd_io
#Web3 #SSI #cosmos #DID
Decentralised Identifiers #DID's, and #incentives via blockchain solutions are going to challenge everything we know about handling #data.

New commercial business models.

New marketplaces.

New privacy.

It's the bedrock of #web3.

Cheqd is making it easier for (A) individuals and (B) organisations to trust each other!

No more data silos to be leaked or hacked.

No more data sold without consent.

No more relationships and transactions without trust.

Taking back control in a trustless network.

THREAD: As we mark the 50th anniversary of #SSI, it’s time to reckon with the fact that SSI’s woefully outdated eligibility rules—from a $2,000 asset limit to marriage penalties and more—have become a new form of large-scale institutionalization without walls. #SSIat50🧵
Oct. 30 marks 50 years since Supplemental Security Income, or #SSI was signed into law by President Richard Nixon in 1972.

Congress’s intent in establishing the program was to ensure that disabled and older adults “would no longer have to subsist on below-poverty incomes.” 2/x
Today, SSI provides critical income support to nearly 8M people with disabilities and older adults, including 1M disabled children.

Modest as benefits are, I saw early on as a legal aid lawyer how transformative the monthly income support from SSI can be in a person’s life. 3/x

I wish you could be a fly on the wall and see what I see. I've been seeing some unbelievable progress and it kind of gets me excited to be part of it. We're taking identity and privacy to the next level.

The next 12 months are going to be momentous @cheqd_io

Strap in!
When I first learned about the concept of digital identity, I really wasn't a fan. Then I was thrown into the deep end and discovered the concept of Self-Sovereign Identity(SSI).

I've many peers who still wonder what the hell it is that we do and it isn't always easy to explain
As someone who's worked in development and IT administration positions, I've seen all kinds of scam attempts from spear-phishing, whale-phishing, smishing and social engineering techniques designed to catch unsuspecting victims off-guard.

Leute, ihr dachtet bisher #SSI ist das dümmste, was ihr mit #eID anstellen könnt.
Aber ich habe gerade ein tolles Angebot des entdeckt.
Da steckt ihr eID rein und bekommt Hash der Personendaten raus. Die dann als @KeePass Masterpasswort verwendet werden.
Das Kunstwerk ist natürlich OpenSource und kann hier bewundert werden:…
Das ist wirklich ein sehr kreativer Umgang mit der @Governikus API, um Personalausweisdaten über die @AusweisApp2 ohne Berechtigungszertifikat zu verarbeiten.
Und das meine Freund*innen ist der Grund, warum ihr euren Personalausweis nicht in jeden Quatsch reinstecken solltet.
Bitte übernehmt, @certbund.

Traurig, auf wie viele Quatschthemen sich in der deutschen Verwaltung fokussiert wird - also von #SSI bis Souveränität (alles von #GaiaX bis souveränen Arbeitsplätzen).
Anstatt sich endlich ernsthaft um drängende Themen aus Bürger*innenperspektive zu kümmern. (z.B. #ozg) #SCCON22
Und selbst bei den #ozg Themen, wird sich dann auf den Quatsch fokussiert (z.B. 2. Runde digitales Schulzeugnis, das wieder vom BSI kassiert wird) anstatt wirklich relevante Leistungen in die Breite zu bringen.
Wir steuern auf den 3. Corona-Winter zu und haben immer noch nicht die einfachsten Bürgeramtsleistungen digitalisiert bekommen.
Reden aber darüber, ob wir nicht eine paar eigene Clouds 🤪 bauen sollten und überhaupt digitale Grundschulzeugnisse werden uns alle retten!

What is the total addressable market for Self Sovereign Identity #SSI networks, vendors, and ecosystems.

Yes you guessed it! 8 billion humans.

A user centric model for portability and interoperability for any and all to enable choice and Inclusion.

Enter @cheqd_io $Cheq
Not only is the total addressable market so large, but with enabling a user to control their own data it gives them access horizontally and vertically between all types of use cases.

The 100s of services you've signed up for in a lifetime where you control nothing.

It is a necessity to pivot from this to enable revocation of your credentials, and reduce the risks that are traditional data bases, or honey pots for fraud.

We see this more and more!

It's not only SSI though, the technology behind it expands much further.

There's this little old token called $Cheq


It's very well hidden down the bottom of #CMC, and also not captured the full attention of the #Cosmos #CosmosEcosystem yet. @cosmos @CosmosClub_ @cosmoshub @cosmosibc.

Let's learn a little about its position in #identity👇 Image
Let's begin with the Co-creators of @cheqd_io $Cheq, @evernym (now @Avast)

"We’re the creators of #Hyperledger #Indy and the #Sovrin Network, a co-creator of the #cheqd Network, and a primary contributor to Hyperledger #Aries and #Ursa"
Some more on @evernym,

We’re a co-editor of the Verifiable Credential spec at the @w3c, which was approved as an official recommendation in 2019 .. also a co-author and co-editor of the Decentralized Identifier spec .. a co-chair of W3C’s DID and VC WGs

Nein, lieber @Wissing, niemand benötigt beim Online Shopping eine digitale Identität. Außer natürlich Onlineshops, die mehr Daten über uns erfassen wollen.

Traurig, dass diese Debatte wieder von vorne losgeht. #SSI
Und weil @Wissing es ja leider nicht lassen kann, digitale Identitäten auf unsichere Smartphones packen zu wollen, werde ich also die nächsten 3 Jahre auch weiterhin viel damit zu tun haben, Bullshit-Projekte zu zerlegen.
Ja @max_fksr die Bundesregierung hat "Schaufenster-Bullshit-Bingo" mit uns gespielt.
Jetzt heißen die Schaufenster Leuchttürme und dank Leuten wie Dir in Regierung brauche ich eine noch viel größere Bingo-Karte.
Und was ne Strategie ist, habt ihr leider nicht verstanden.

Boy, I hope you're paying attention right now to the (#real)change that is coming.



Take back your data with @cheqd_io

To accelerate this vision, Avast acquired Evernym in late 2021, and more recently acquired @securekey in early 2022. Both companies were founding members of DIF and member organizations of W3C, with Evernym also a founding member of ToIP.
