So today the news came out Nuggets is a “leader” amongst the companies doing Self-Sovereign identity according to One World Identity.
The thing is they aren’t doing Self-Sovereign Identity.
For starters they haven’t actively participated in any of the community forums either online or offline.
They are doing global identity lockin theater. Or to put it another way I keep hearing about “If only everyone had one identity on our system everything would will work out for everyone”. News flash …this isn’t a sensible path forward.
Bonus they have a token.
I took the liberty of reading their white paper. It’s cute…but no where in there is there anything about Decentralized Identifier – the standard at the W3C nor Verifiable Credentials also at the W3C.
Its SSI white washing at its finest and to see OWI is enabling this kind of thing is just kinda sad. I thought their analysts were better then that. If they want to be the New Burton Group they need to up their game a bit. I hope they can improve there work going ahead and stop enabling SSI white washing.
