Introduction to Ion – a layer 2 network for Decentralized Identifiers with Bitcoin – Daniel Buchner – Webinar 29

Microsoft presented in May 2019 in New York the first decentralized infrastructure implementation by a major tech company that is built directly on the Bitcoin blockchain called Ion. Daniel Buchner, who is leading this initiative at Microsoft and a founding member of the Decentralized Identity Foundation, will discuss the culture at Microsoft, how decentralized identity works with Bitcoin and what you need to know to use the Bitcoin blockchain for non-financial transactions.

Ion handles the decentralized identifiers, which control the ability to prove you own the keys to this data. Before you watch our webinar we recommend listening to this podcast “What Bitcoin DID” with Daniel Buchner hosted by Peter McCormack.
