A ‘meta’/Layer 2 protocol that can be applied to any target trust layer to create a scalable DID method (batteries almost included)
A bunch of DID methods work fine at lab scales (~100 DIDs) but how do we scale to billions?
- Doesn’t require any additional consensus, relies on the consensus of the underlying trust layer
- Strict deterministic ruleset means no conflicting states are allowed
- IDs are not transferable
Batches a bunch of operations as content-addressable storage references (read: IPFS) and anchors them to underlying trust layer.
