Thank you for your detailed and thoughtful response. I am intrigued by your closing suggestion: “break the (block)chains and let individuals reassemble their components the right way. We have the components, they are just not assembled correctly to empower individuals growing their self-sovereign identities.”
Could you please clarify what you mean by this? I’d like to know how this kind of individual agency would be supported technically while preserving the (impersonal) structure of trust that the blockchain currently provides (i.e. fraud prevention, verifiability of claims).
