Closing Remarks
The Web3 ID Forum is supported by technology and industry leaders who believe in the pursuit of digital identity ownership, for all.
We envision a future where individuals are in control of their digital identities, deciding what personal data they want to share, monetize, keep private, and take with them wherever they go. By shaping policymakers’ viewpoints and Congressional action on decentralized identity, we’re catalyzing a movement toward personal data ownership, increasing safety, transparency, and trust as mainstream adoption of tomorrow’s internet grows.
Stay informed!
The Web3 ID Forum is one component of a developing initiative spanning advocacy, programming, and research to inform federal policy about the opportunities and benefits of a decentralized, distributed and blockchain-based Internet, empowering individuals and businesses in the transition from Web2 to a Web3 and beyond world.
