In this conversation, Mathieu sits down with Stepan Gershuni for the second time on the podcast, the first one being for Episode 9 when they talked about the Economics of Self-Sovereign Identity. If you haven’t listened to that one, we suggest you do as it was a very interesting conversation that looked into how SSI can be applied to paper based and web2 models, and then dove a bit into web3.
This podcast conversation is much more focused on the impact of SSI on web3, where the main conversation point is around DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations). At a high level, a DAO is the web3 version of a company or a community.
Think of it this way, if an NFT represents a piece of digital media, a DAO represents a whole media company.
What are DAOs?
How DAOs are the next logical evolution of coordination mechanisms for communities & companies.
How DAOs are really just a mix of Decentralized ID + Reputation.
How the adoption of Verifiable Credentials with DAOs and open protocols can take off very quick within the next year.
How a DAO can be an Issuer/Verifier of Verifiable Credentials.
The need for decentralized reputation mechanisms and trust scores.
