The SSI Protocol defines self-sovereign identity (SSI) as a decentralized digital identity that provides financial freedom to its user by enabling equal opportunities with decentralized technologies. However, we recognize that not everyone has access to the new technologies required to achieve SSI. Inequalities in socioeconomic class, age, ethnicity, race, gender identity, and geographic location can all affect an individual's ability to obtain SSI.

To address these inequalities, the SSI Protocol develops open-source software on blockchain networks like Zilliqa and provides a series of non-custodial wallets (SSI accounts) and decentralized applications (smart contracts such as NFT domain names).

Your SSI account manages your digital identity and gives you control over your data and financial assets in a fully decentralized manner, without the need to give up that control to third parties or intermediaries.
