does decentralized identity matter?

A decentralized identity aims to provide people with 

official identification documents, total ownership of their 

identities, and user-friendly security. Citizens 

frequently require a verifiable proof of existence in order to

access basic services like banking, healthcare, and education.

Unfortunately, 1 billion people worldwide still lack a 

recognized identity document, according to Worldbank statistics.

Unable to vote, register to vote, open a bank account, own property, 

or find employment, a sizeable portion of the population

lives in precarious circumstances. People's freedom is

constrained by their inability to obtain identification documents.
