Blockchain and Decentralized Identity – a pair of webinars presented by John Craddock

Get the facts about Blockchain and Decentralized Identity – and how they are inextricably linked – from identity guru John Craddock in a pair of webinars in May and June.

There’s a huge quantity of misinformation about blockchain technology on the internet, and having a solid understanding of blockchains is vital to understanding decentralized identity (DID).

That’s why John Craddock has developed a pair of closely-linked webinars – The Ultimate Guide to Blockchain on Thursday 30 May, and Introduction to Decentralized Identity on Thursday 27 June. As with all John’s sessions, there won’t be any waffle, just great, in-depth technical explanations.

John’s webinars are about the future of identity systems, and I strongly recommend you sign up for both. And it’s worth registering even if you can’t attend one or other of the live sessions as we’ll send you a link to the recordings afterwards.

At the first of his two webinars, on 30 May, John will cut through the “fake news” and give you a solid and accurate understanding of how Blockchains work, and their uses beyond supporting the underpinning of cryptocurrency.

Decentralized Identity webinar JCWebinar 2: An Introduction to Decentralized Identity

Here’s a thought – what if YOU were in sole control of your identity and not relying on multiple organizations protecting it for you? If you count how many identities you have to access work and social resources, there will probably be O365, Google, Facebook,,,and many more! In today’s world, we entrust these organizations with our identity, “secured” with only a username and password.

At the second of his two webinars, on 27 June, John will explain how multiple organizations are already working with proposals and open standards for decentralized identity (DID). A self-owned and controlled identity will integrate seamlessly into your everyday life and give you complete control of the information you share, and with whom you share it. It’s the future of identity systems, and so this webinar is not to be missed!

This technical session will explain how the underlying technologies are used to implement DID.  A key component underpinning DID systems is Decentralized Ledger Technology – Blockchain. So to get the maximum from this DID webinar, be sure to attend John’s Blockchain webinar on 30 May.
