How Sovrin Works

This guide explains how Sovrin works and explores an example customer's interactions with a bank, the local government, a potential employer, a school and a retailer. These scenarios provide an overview of the consumer-facing experience of Sovrin as well as its capabilities.

The Technical Foundations of Sovrin

Sovrin's previous white paper discussed the internet's glaring identity problem, and the negative impact it has on your organization. But, with the recent emergence of distributed ledger technology (DLT), any person, organization, or asset can have its own digital identity without the use of a central authority.

The internet single-handedly changed the world, and now touches nearly every part of daily life. Ironically, it was created without a personal addressing system and can only identify machines, not individual people. That job is left to websites and applications.

Blockchain Technology Primer

Also known as a shared ledger or distributed ledger technology, blockchain is a digital ledger that records transactions between two or more people. Blockchain is encrypted and decentralized, which makes it safe and easy to use.
