RE: DID Press Release Testimonials

Here is ETRI’s Testimonials:



ETRI, a government-affiliated research institute in South Korea, leads the development of artificial intelligence (AI) and emerging ICTs. We are delighted that W3C has approved the Proposed Recommendation on the Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) as W3C Recommendation. The W3C Recommendation for DIDs will serve as an excellent foundation for the digital transformation and the metaverse era, where every company globally strives to understand and reach. Furthermore, recognizing the importance of DIDs, the South Korean government and companies are cooperating to gradually apply DIDs to government-led public services, such as COVID-19 vaccination certificates and mobile driver's licenses. Therefore, ETRI is confident that the approval of the W3C Recommendation for DIDs will contribute significantly to establishing a safe and convenient DIDs-based digital ecosystem.


--- Seyungyun Lee, Director of Opensource Center, ETRI

From Conexxus:


W3C Decentralized identifiers represent a huge step forward in being able to create privacy preserving systems.  Coupled with W3C Verifiable Credentials, Decentralized Identifiers have enabled design and standardization of an Age Verification system that meets regulatory requirements while protecting private information.  Creating systems that can do both things has formerly been a challenging task, made easier with Decentralized Identifiers and Verifiable Credentials. Conexxus is a long term W3C member, and is the standards body for the convenience retail sector representing 147,000 retail outlets.  W3C Decentralized Identifiers have helped create an important privacy preserving standard for the TruAge program.
