Decentralized Identity Ecosystem for Southeast Asia: A journey from MVP to Production

Combined Session
Friday, May 12, 2023 11:50—12:10

Decentralized identity has made its waves in the EU with European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI) and in the US with various funded projects. A vast market in south-east Asia stays untapped. We have enabled our partner organization ZADA to build a decentralized identity ecosystem that connects various southeast Asian countries with numerous cases like 'Decentralized Vaccination TravelPass', 'Employment IDs', and 'Government issued Educational Credentials'. The journey of a decentralized identity platform from ideation to MVP and to a scalable production system can bring tremendous insights. We were able to successfully enable the public sector in Myanmar to engage with self-sovereign identity and bring value to its citizens by issuing over more than a quarter million digital credentials. Monetization of these credentials was an essential factor for us. These self-sovereign identity credentials varied in use cases and were verified by Singapore immigration, Public sector hospitals, the Education Ministry of Myanmar, the Health Ministry of Myanmar, and various other private sector vendors. Our journey covers various use cases in EdTech, HealthTech, IAM, and KYC. Explored right, these cases can help us dive into how enterprises can engage with the southeast Asian identity market.
