Ep. 42 What are Verifiable Credentials?

#42 In today’s highly digital world, we’ve come to rely on digital copies of documents. We keep and send digital files to reduce paper waste and speed up transmission. We store photos on hard drives or the cloud so we don’t have to print all of them, and those that are printed can always be duplicated if they get damaged. It makes sense to be able to have such digital copies of credential documents too. These are the items of proof that verify who we are and our license to do what we do: we’re old enough to get into a nightclub; we’ve earned a particular degree; we can be identified internationally for travel. Verifiable credentials allow for this digital copy to be stored and shared as needed, in a way that protects privacy even better than physical copies do.
