“Who are you?” The simplest questions are often the toughest to answer. This is doubly true in a digital world, where consumers appear as IP addresses and individuals are paranoid about privacy and illicit use of personal information. Hear conflicting perspectives on solving problems that keep people up at night. What is the role of a marketplace for transactions of trusted identities?

Join a lively discussion on how Trust Anchors can verify the legitimacy of individuals off-chain and improve reputation and credibility scores.
