On December 31st, the community member Yalda Mousavinia (@stellarmagnet) asked what are DAOstack’s thoughts around identity verification protocols. A synthesis of the answer provided by DAOstack’s architect Matan Field is:
“Right now we are not at all focused on identity verification protocols; pretty much the opposite. The DAO protocols we’re focusing on are pretty agnostic to the identity of participating agents; their reputation is derived from actions they’re doing in the system, and the appreciation they gain from their environment.
One-to-one human-agent relationship is not needed in our platform (perhaps vice versa), although you could definitely add it on top as a plug in (if we won’t others will). Besides, we’ll definitely integrate with existing identity tools such as uPort.
One could integrate identity protocols right away. We’re also constantly improving the documentation to allow for such 3rd-party integrations easily possible. The more others contribute code / features / plugins the better.”
