Introduction to the Series


The reason why we’re writing this series is because we’ve found that building a protocol for decentralized identity & reputation asks for a few explanations. This is the first base layer protocol for decentralized identity & reputation in the world, and not particularly an easy task to pick on.

By sharing our thoughts and experiences, we hope to inspire others about the importance of decentralized systems, open source software, secure data and communications, and the role of identity and reputation in both analog and digital networks. We’ll happily listen to any of your questions, comments, and suggestions on any of our articles and software.

We’ll bring you all of the articles on the list below. The articles under “General” may be published at any time. You can see this page as a continuously updating index, based on your feedback and our future experiences. If you find any of the following topics interesting, this is a great page to bookmark and come back to later.
