The concept of identity underpins every transaction and interaction we engage in, both physical and digital. In the physical world, the concept of identity is well understood, but the inherent structure of our current internet makes verifying and managing identities online difficult. With technological developments like Web3 and the metaverse, we have an opportunity to reconceptualize digital identity in the nextgen web. What should this digital identity ecosystem look like? How can we create a cross-platform digital identity infrastructure that facilitates trust while enabling users to maintain control over their identity? What opportunities will the future of the web provide, and how can we best capitalize on those opportunities?


When we discuss the metaverse, what are we referring to and what does identity and community look like? How do companies create and maintain trust in the interactions and transactions they are taking in the metaverse? What does the metaverse look like beyond gaming and what are the challenges for adoption?
