The State of Identity on the Web

In the world of decentralized identity and digital trust, there are a variety of new concepts and topics that are frequently referenced, written, and talked about, but rarely is there a chance to introduce these concepts formally to audiences who aren’t already familiar with them.

For this reason, we have created a new “Learn Concepts” series to outline the the fundamental building blocks needed to understand this new technology paradigm and explore the ways that MATTR thinks about and understands the critical issues in the space.

Over on our MATTR Learn site, we have been building out a variety of resources to assist developers and architects with understanding the MATTR universe of tools and products. We are happy to announce we have updated the site to include this new educational content series alongside our existing resources.

Our Learn Concepts series covers the following topics:

To facilitate context sharing, each of these Learn Concepts has a distinct Medium post with a permanent URL in addition to being published on our MATTR Learn site. We will keep these resources up to date to make sure they remain evergreen and relevant to newcomers in the space.

We are excited to share what we’ve learned on our journey, and we look forward to adapting and expanding this knowledge base as standards progress and technologies mature.
