We are living in a phase of unprecedented opportunity to build a global web of trust. Imagine how this will drive exponential growth in the new information economy of the Fourth Industrial Age, where everything is connected. Our passport to this new world is self-sovereign digital identity, together with sovereignty over our personal information. Exciting new digital tools, such as decentralised applications, are being invented to give ordinary people the super-powers to connect and transact in profound new ways.

Shawn will discuss how Consent is building a Web 3.0 protocol for privately exchanging valuable personal information between trusted identities. See how this works in real-world applications and hear about the exciting future possibilities for an exponentially networked society.
