Decentralized Identity

At its most basic, decentralized Identity is about giving the control of your data back to you with a digital identity. Usually your data (sometimes called attributes, identifiers, and credentials, for example your birth date) are stored in a centralized location If you make an account on a company website, the data is likely stored by the company. You don’t hold your information and therefore you have less control over it.
