eTalk: Public-Permissioned Blockchain networks and Self-Sovereign Identity: a perfect match
A Public-Permissioned blockchain network tries to combine the permissioning feature from private consortiums with a decentralized governance model in order to obtain the best characteristics of both worlds. Implementing a Self-Sovereign Identity system on top of a public-permissioned blockchain network produces a very powerful system bringing a lot of value to the digitization of the productive economy of a country. At the same time, can form the basis for interoperable identities with a high level of privacy and control by the citizens.
