The Element DID Method: Sidetree, Ethereum & IPFS – Orie Steele – Webinar 31

Webinar 31 Element Transmute Orie Steele

Orie Steele is Cofounder and CTO of Transmute, a company developing IAM and Verifiable Credential solutions that integrate Decentralized Identity for Enterprises. He has a BS in Cyber Security and MS in Computer Science from Stevens Institute of Technology where he studied social network malware and botnets between 2007-2012. He was an early engineer at Patient IO, a Techstars backed startup acquired by Athena Health in 2016, where he helped develop and secure a care coordination platform that connected nurses and patients.

In this talk, Orie will discuss the history of the Element DID Method, how it leverages the same Sidetree Protocol that is used by ION on the Bitcoin Network. He’ll introduce the motivation for Element and ION, and then walk through the core components of developing a working DID System, including topics such as wallets, signing, DID resolution, key revocation, and decentralization.
