How does Civic work?

Civic’s network consists of three different but interdependent individuals: users, validators, and service providers. Users who want to use the protocol to register their identities and Civic make this easy and secure with the Secure Identity app.

The validator is responsible for verifying the authenticity of the identity on the distributed ledger of blockchain.

Civic is built on the Ethereum blockchain and uses smart contracts to oversee data validation and payments for this work.
