IdentityToken is an idea, the idea of owning your identity and bringing it with you. Eliminating the need for custodians managing your identity.
Welcome to IdentityToken! But wait, what is it? Is it a token sale? an ICO? an NFT?
NO, we are not selling anything!
IdentityToken is an idea, the idea of owning your identity and bringing it with you. Eliminating the need for custodians and middlemen for managing your identity. Eliminating passwords and centralized databases for authentication.
Using the Cardano Blockchain and its Native Asset feature. We are proud to present our proof of concept of the IdentityToken as a means of authentication.
In this page, you will be able to mint your own IdentityToken right in your browser. Without centralized servers and you will be able to receive it directly in your wallet as a Cardano native asset.
Once minted, you will be able to prove your identity to services that will support the protocol. We provide a demo chat-service to show an example on how it could be used. But IdentityToken could be utilized for so many more use-cases.
Potential Applications: NFT Ownership Tracking, Cardano Social Media Profile, Linking third-party services (Discord, Twitter) to your Cardano Wallet, the possibilities are endless!
We will provide a technical white-paper in the future (coming soon™), detailing the rules of the IdentityToken as a protocol and how to use it. In the meantime you can explore out GitHub page. We think it could compliment other authentication protocols like the OAuth2 protocol.
Finally, We don't expect IdentityToken to suddenly be the standard of authentication, we are simply sharing an idea. A glimpse of a decentralized future. A showcase of what Cardano can do, even without smart-contracts!
