Dhiway, India’s first Verifiable Data Exchange platform, is proud to announce that it has joined the Sovrin Foundation as a Steward of the Sovrin Network. Dhiway joins a group of more than 75 other companies that maintain the operation of a decentralized global public network enabling self-sovereign identity (SSI) on the internet.

The Sovrin Network assures people and organizations who are part of
the network a complete control of their data and online security and
privacy through SSI — a decentralized digital identity system using
distributed ledger technology. Sovrin Stewards are organizations that
run validator nodes to operate the network which can read and write to
the Sovrin ledger. Sovrin Stewards commit resources, time, and
computing power to support this network, and they are spread across
all continents, making the Sovrin Network truly global.

Based in Bengaluru, India, Dhiway is a startup which aims
to build a verifiable data exchange framework designed to enable
trusted digital transactions between everyone and everything using
open standards and technologies. Dhiway provides a trust framework
which empowers individuals with ownership of data while providing
cryptographic security, making the proofs verifiable.

“These are exciting times for us,” said K. P. Pradeep, CEO of Dhiway.
“Dhiway’s engagement with the Sovrin Foundation is a commitment
towards participating in the community. We will always be available to
mentor, guide, and partner with individuals and companies in this
journey of enabling SSI for exchange of data over the internet.”

“We are pleased to have Dhiway support the Sovrin Network as a
Steward,” says Phil Windley, Chair of the Sovrin Foundation Board of
Trustees. “The Dhiway team is passionate about SSI and the global
adoption of Sovrin, and we look forward to their future
contributions.”
