Citation: "Identity is one of the key foundational elements of blockchain applications. In an ecosystem that has its basics on trustless, anonymous computations, building a notion of identity is far from trivial. Furthermore, the technical building blocks of identity are relatively different whether we are talking about private of permissioned blockchains. The challenge only contributes to make this area more fascinating. This week both IBM and Microsoft released new technologies focus on tackling the challenge of identity on permissioned and public blockchains respectively. The approaches are different but they give us a glimpse of how innovation is evolving in this space."
