The Sovrin Foundation, an international digital identity network, has added Chain Partners, CynjaTech, NEC, and Tech Systems Limited to the service.
These companies have joined over 60 organisations to Sovrin’s decentralised self-sovereign identity network which empowers consumers to manage their own digital identifications. Some of the other companies within the ecosystem include African financial services company ABSA, financial data sharing service Finicity, inline security solution Digicert, financial solution provider ATB Financial, and digital identity platform InfoCert, among others.
The Sovrin Network is an open source project which gives users personal controls over their online identities, removing the need of various accounts and passwords all stored on separate databases.
South Korea-based Chain Partners is a blockchain solution developer which offers solutions for cryptocurrency exchanges, crypto payments and other related financial services.
Tech Systems offers IT-based procurement and engineering services for the public and private sectors in Nigeria. CynjaTech is an education technology platform which helps teach children how to navigate their digital lives.
The final company joining the network is NEC which is an IT enterprise aiming to improve global information and communication technology. In doing this, it hopes to boost safety, security and equality for people around the world.
Sovrin Foundation executive director and CEO Heather Dahl said, “The number and variety of industries joining the Sovrin Network as Stewards, and their spread across the globe are increasing evidence of a global revolution in digital identity.
“We at the Foundation, believe in a world where self-sovereign identity is available to all, allowing people to own and control their identity in the same way they do offline. We are grateful for our Stewards that help make this mission possible as they continue to strengthen the security and reliability of the Sovrin Network.”
