cheqd introduces Creds for protection and building trust against AI

London, England, July 24, 2023, Chainwire

cheqd, a start-up creating an economy where users and organizations have complete control and portability of their data, is launching Creds – a platform for issuing, holding, and sharing digital credentials to build a portable reputation.

Announced at the Nebular Summit today in Paris, Creds is a platform for issuing digital credentials, or “creds, ” a portable, reusable, privacy-preserving, and secure way to prove identity, build a decentralized reputation, and establish trust.

Creds addresses several web3 challenges, particularly community security, engagement, trust, the wave of distrust created by generative artificial intelligence (AI), and privacy concerns.

Community security, portable trust, and decentralized reputation

One of the biggest challenges in web3 is security. One report shows that crypto scams wiped out nearly $150 million in a week and mass-scale distrust in communities. 

With Creds, projects can confirm ownership of handles, wallets, and reputation, proving admin and moderator role/status across platforms, including Discord and Telegram, and preventing impersonation, Sybil attacks, and scams. 

Fake content, news, and even people are being supercharged with the advent of generative AI, compounding the issues.

The way to combat this issue is through trust and reputation. Individuals should be able to build their verifiable reputation and port it across different communities and platforms. 

Creds allow precisely that with the added feature of privacy, whereas individuals can choose to share one or a collection of credentials for others to verify as accurate.

Community engagement and gamification

Gamification can enhance user engagement and drives customer acquisition and retention. 

Companies that use gamification tend to be more profitable than those that don’t. Creds adds a reputation layer to community strategy, enabling projects and individuals to explore gamification mechanics, such as incentivized quests and learn-to-earn, create unique reputation and trust systems, and increase real engagement.

Creds cheqd

Eduardo Hotta, head of marketing and community at cheqd, said:

“More and more organizations are looking to become community-focused to take advantage of the rising community economy. For example, having a smaller number of active community members, or superfans, is preferable to having a group with thousands of bots.”

Privacy-preserving

Trust and reputation systems have been tried with the use of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) and SoulBound Tokens (SBTs) with varying levels of success. 

Creds differ from NFTs and SBTs since they are private, revocable, and can be taken to other platforms and ecosystems since all personal data is off-ledger, which remains private and secure. Data is cryptographically signed and verified by decentralized identifiers (DIDs) on-chain, making it trusted data.

Fraser Edwards, CEO and co-founder of cheqd, explains: 

“Creds offers a privacy-preserving alternative to the surveillance enabling tech of SBTs and NFTs where you have little control over your privacy, as activities and other information are written on the ledger, making it public and immutable. Creds are collectable, portable, secure, and verifiable; it has all the best things that the NFT and SBT have with the addition of everything else they are missing.”

Launch

cheqd launched Creds and its verifiable credentials by issuing creds to attendees at the Nebular Summit. 

Attendees, with their creds, have a verifiable way to prove they were at the event without giving up any personally identifiable information about themselves. Like an NFT, their creds are collectable and can be kept as a memoir of the event they attended.

Sebastien Couture, founder of Nebular Summit and Interop Ventures, says: 

“Our goal for Nebular Summit is to showcase the innovative technology emerging from the interchain ecosystem, and offering credentials to all attendees is a unique and personalized experience to showcase these innovations. We’re excited to build from this first edition and use them to offer future benefits, like early registration to our events throughout the year.”
