Evernym is building an open source sovereign identity platform on a permissioned blockchain for credit unions. Mike Lawson finds out more.

OK everybody, get ready to step inside an episode of The Matrix, as we chat with Evernym co-founder/ CEO Timothy Ruff to talk about your new digital identity that will revolutionise the way you bank (or do anything really).

It’s a conversation that you have to open up your mind to, and think well into the future. Suffice to say, it’s probably one of the more fascinating interviews we’ve done to date. And the best news here is that credit unions can lead the way.

So hold on to your britches as we dive into the future of your identity. According to Timothy, identity is a mess and it’s time to clean it up. Evernym is building an open source sovereign identity platform on a permissioned blockchain for credit unions. (Feeling a little like Neo yet?)

My best advice to understand what’s coming, and it’s coming, is to listen to Timothy explain all of this and let it sink in. Check it out and let us know your thoughts. Pretty cool stuff here.
