IBM joins DIF
IBM and Hyperledger project have joined Decentralized Identity Foundation (DIF) consortium.
IBM and Hyperledger Project became the part of the Decentralized Identity Foundation (DIF).
Regarding this issue, Jerry Cuomo, IBM Vice President, said: “Today, we are not in control of our identity.
At IBM we are focused on leading a global shift to decentralized identity that is built on blockchain technology.
Blockchain provides distributed ledger technology as the foundation for decentralized identity.”
He added: “That is why today we are excited to announce IBM has joined the Decentralized Identity Foundation (DIF) as a complement to our current stewardship in the Hyperledger Project.”
Earlier it was reported that IBM is developing blockchain-based trade finance platform called Batavia.
