Zach LeBeau, CEO of SingularDTV, commented:
“Decentralization offers a completely new paradigm of user experience and functionality that the internet cannot deliver. Identity will play an important role in the SingularDTV ecosystem. It is one of many revolutionary applications we will be integrating into our platform.”
Currently, digital identity is managed much differently on the internet. Facebook and Twitter, for example, own their users digital identities. But on SingularDTV, both audience and content producers will control and own their identities. Decentralized digital identity is also uniform throughout Ethereum. On the internet however, a merchant on Amazon who has been selling products for several years and has built a reputation based on a collection of reviews and ratings is not able to take that same identity history to eBay if they want to begin selling there. Instead they need to build their identity and reputation from the beginning. With decentralized identity on Ethereum, users can take their identities with them everywhere.
Rouven Heck, Product Lead of uPort, added:
“We are excited to work with the SingularDTV team. They are building an exciting new ecosystem, where uPort can best demonstrate the power of a user-centric reputation based identity system.”
uPort is a self-sovereign identity and key management system built on the Ethereum Blockchain consisting of an easy-to-use mobile app, Ethereum smart contracts, and open-source libraries.
SingularDTV is a Blockchain entertainment studio and rights management platform building a decentralized entertainment industry on the Ethereum Blockchain.
