The Trusted Digital Web platform is capable of supporting and processing any class of Fully Decentralized Object from identity through to any type of business document or personal credential through to any type of NFT (e.g. photo, calf or kiss, etc.). If you're fairly technical, I recommend watching https<https://youtu.be/J6n9TvxA93I>://youtu.be/<https://youtu.be/J6n9TvxA93I>J6n9TvxA93I<https://youtu.be/J6n9TvxA93I> <https://youtu.be/J6n9TvxA93I> . If you're less technical, watch https<https://youtu.be/IuEew7rH5gw>://youtu.be/<https://youtu.be/IuEew7rH5gw>IuEew7rH5gw<https://youtu.be/IuEew7rH5gw>

The following 2 videos also provide a lot of insight into the use of VCs (aka the Structured Credential model) on the Trusted Digital Web:

did:object is, in fact, the ideal method namespace for the Fully Decentralized Object model as realized by the Trusted Digital Web.

Thank you for the question Brian.

Hi Michael,

Interesting work. Is there a reason you decided on the "object" method name? I don't see anything in here that makes this method any more "object" oriented than all other did methods as a did is essentially an object for all intents and purposes.

The CRUD operations describe implementation details of how to interact with the method (I assume through a library you've also published) but it doesn't go into technical specifics that I could see.. I'm interested in knowing how the method works on a technical level. Is it as simple as these objects are written to the Stratis blockchain (which I have no experience with). Are the signatures handled by the blockchain?

The publication of this DID Method specification realizes, in large part, a 4-year quest (or should I say personal mission) to create a platform to Tokenize Every Little Thing (ELT).

Best regard,
