Decentralized Digital Identity in the Spanish and Portuguese speaking world


Published on
SSI Meetup coordinating node Alex Preukschat presents in this webinar the 2020 SSI report for Iberoamerica with the main highlights and insights gained for this edition. Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) is booming, and we expect it to be one of the main unifying technologies of the blockchain and decentralized world. Unlike our first report for Iberoamerica, we have chosen, for this edition, to prepare a shorter executive document that reflects the main trends in the region. In this study, we focus on Ibero-American initiatives that are either done in the name of SSI or have elements strongly resembling SSI, rather than simple authentication experiments that are further away from the principles of SSI.
