Why is blockchain interesting? It is interesting since Blockchain decentralizes data storage, reducing the risk of altering and creating a more secure and resilient system. This lack of a central authority fosters greater trust among participants. Also, transactions on the Blockchain are transparent and immutable. This means everyone can see the transactions, and once they are recorded, they cannot be changed. This builds a reliable and trustworthy system.

We are creating a new global social contract through this technology!

My touchpoints with blockchain and DLT so far: I am keen to keep learning and expanding on the use of Digital Identity. Blockchain provides self-sovereign, secure, and tamper-proof digital identities, giving individuals control over their personal information. It enhances security and reduces identity fraud by providing a reliable method for verifying and authenticating identities.
