And The Winner Is…
On March 26, 2019, the BCDevExchange posted a ‘Code with Us’ opportunity to build a Hyperledger Indy mobile agent to be interoperable with the Indy Catalyst Agent. On April 3, 2019, Tomislav Markovski, Streetcred.id, LLC (@tmarkovski), was announced the winner of the opportunity, with work to commence on April 4, 2019.
Software agents built on decentralized identifiers (DIDs), self-sovereign identity (SSI) and DIDComm protocols establish the foundation of the Verifiable Organizations Network (VON). In the last few months, the Hyperledger Indy community has made great progress in defining protocols for messaging, implementing those protocols, and ensuring implementations of the protocols are interoperable.
Working with the Verifiable Organization Networks (VON) team, Tomislav will develop code that will enable secure, encrypted peer-to-peer mobile messaging and the exchange of verifiable credentials. The VON team plans to demonstrate the mobile “Streetcred” app working interoperably with the Indy Catalyst Agent at the Internet Identity Workshop (IIW 28) in Mountain View, CA, April 30, May 1 & 2, 2019.
