COTI V2’s Dynamic Decentralized Identity Explained and Exciting First Partner Revealed — Civic!

As we march towards the launch of COTI V2, we’ve started a series of deep dives into the brand-new use cases of COTI V2. In the first spotlight article, we explored how COTI V2s infrastructure will power an advanced version of a digital identity solution called Dynamic Decentralized Identity (DID).

The first launch partner to integrate Dynamic Decentralized Identity is Civic, a leading provider of identity management tools for web3. As announced yesterday, Civic will use COTI V2’s Garbling protocol solution for Dynamic decentralized identity. Through the integration, COTI V2’s Dynamic DIDs will empower dApps to interact with Civic’s digital identities and query complex insights without accessing sensitive data. This ensures full data protection and confidentiality for Civic users.

Civic prioritizes user protection, as seen in their recent introduction of a physical ID card for Civic Pass holders. This enables Civic Pass holders to prove their identity and minimize the threat of AI driven identity fraud. The partnership between Civic and COTI continues in this direction and represents a major step forward in protecting the digital footprint and credentials of users.

This is just the beginning of many planned collaborations for COTI V2!

With an increase in transactional data per block, the Dencun update provides a significant boost to transactional latency while also significantly reducing transaction fees at the same time. As an Ethereum L2, COTI V2’s design not only ensures smooth integration with upcoming Ethereum upgrades but also positions the protocol to actively contribute to the ongoing transformation of the Ethereum network, paving the way for new groundbreaking advancements and innovations.
