The SSI Ecosystem in South Korea – Jaehoon Shim – Webinar 56

Jaehoon Shim, a blockchain researcher at LG CNS and the founder of SSIMeetup Korea, will introduce the Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) ecosystem of South Korea. South Korea became a hotbed of Self Sovereign Identity in the last couple of years. The number of government-funded projects, including the mobile credential for government officials, requires using DIDs (Decentralized Identifiers). Also, hundreds of enterprises joined public/private consortia on decentralized identity to empower the digital transformation of the South Korean society. Jaehoon will explain in detail the current ecosystem and discuss opportunities for the future.
