Tykn as new Founding Steward of Sovrin’s Trust Framework
Tykn can proudly announce the position of Founding Steward in the Sovrin Network, world’s first self-sovereign identity (SSI) network. The Sovrin Foundation is a private-sector non-profit that works internationally in the realm of human digital governance by setting up a trust framework necessary to ensure the integrity of the network.
Tykn has overlapping values in regard to a transparent, diffused and neutral trust framework. The Sovrin network is a permission-based network, and the infrastructure for consensus in regard to identity transactions is provided by permissioned stewards who work independently, running their nodes on the network. With the combination of a network of independent stewards and the infrastructure of the blockchain, a system of checks and balances is set-up in which trust is earned by actions within the network.
The Tykn Team aims to provide the tools to connect with the Sovrin Network as independent Founding Stewards and with this the tools to safeguard identity.
