European Identity standards are shifting rapidly, even more so after the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic - highlighting the importance of user data privacy and security. We began work on an Identity Scheme using a blockchain backbone to achieve self sovereignity: Identities that do not require a Trusted Third Party (TTP) to certify them. We implement the latest research on the subject of blockchain identity, and follow Open Standards by W3C and MyData.Org.
We intend to build a working prototype of a Digital Self Sovereign Identity, backed on the Ethereum blockchain, that sets the standard for efficient and data-safe European Identities and can securely manage User Credentials, Validated Claims & Health Certifications (medical exams, vaccinations).
The Bluechain Identity side-project remains Open Source, and is funded by the European Cohesion Fund's "Vouchers for Innovation" programme.
In the DLT4ALL Programme of the European Commission, Bluechain's core team was selected as Experts in the field of blockchain smart contracts, and were placed as instructors in curriculum activities.Read more
