These systems may use various technologies, such as biometrics or blockchain, to securely store and verify identity information.
Ecosystems refer to interconnected systems or communities that function together and rely on each other to support and sustain one another. In the context of identity networks, an ecosystem might consist of various organizations and individuals who use the network to verify and authenticate identity information.
A wallet, in the context of identity networks, refers to a digital storage system for identity information. It may contain various types of identity documents, such as a driver's license or passport, and allow users to access and share this information with other organizations or individuals as needed.
