Different Approaches to Ethereum Identity Standards


Great, deep, technical article alert! I really love pieces like this. The creators of Uport, one of the leading self-soverign identity projects building on top of Ethereum, takes the time to lay out in comprehensive yet understandable detail the different approaches to managing identity on the blockchain. One of the hallmarks of great thinking in this space is thinking through what problems are likely to arise in the future, such as the need to change signature techniques due to quantum computers, and propose solutions, such as account abstraction which facilitates any signing technique available now and ones not even invented yet. Reading this kind of stuff is exactly how you can get a real edge of understanding that's deeper and better informed than most other people who simply don't take the time.
