Polygon ID Open Source Release Brings a New Era of Digital Trust
Polygon ID, a self-sovereign identity infrastructure stack, has been released as open-source software. The release of this decentralized and private identity solution promises to bring about a fundamental change in the internet’s trust model. With the Polygon ID infrastructure stack, anyone can become an issuer, verifier, or holder of a Web3 identity, using off-chain data for trustless on-chain verifications in the widely-supported Verified Credential format.
ZERO KNOWLEDGE IDENTITY FOR WEB3
The Polygon ID team is excited to announce 4 tools have been released in the #PolygonID Identity Infrastructure to build a more equitable internet that places identity at the center of it.

Developers can leverage Polygon ID to unlock a host of new use cases, ranging from Proof of Uniqueness and Immediate onboarding to use by Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAOs) and Decentralized Finance (DeFi). Polygon ID’s tools enable developers to create decentralized identity solutions that offer users greater control over their own identity and discretion in how they use their personal data to answer questions from institutions and private organizations.
Polygon ID’s release adds four new tools to the Polygon ID Toolset, including Verifier SDK, Issuer Node, Wallet SDK, and Wallet App, which will help developers integrate decentralized identity into their applications while also being Web3 native. All of these tools are made available under the open-source AGPL license.
Several companies are already building with Polygon ID, including Blockchain Lock, Bloock, Clique, and Collab.Land. Blockchain Lock is using Polygon ID to facilitate unlocking and locking of office spaces using its trust network. Bloock is building a trust network to facilitate identity issuance to over 7,000 real estate agents for management of user reputation, training requirements, and more. Clique is issuing verifiable credentials to represent off-chain reputations. Collab.Land is using Polygon ID to provide composable reputation that follows users across multiple apps.
Overall, the release of Polygon ID promises to revolutionize online identity, offering businesses greater security and user data management, and individuals greater control over their personal data and privacy.
