Daniel Buchner is the Head of Decentralized Identity at Block, the company formerly known as Square.
In our talk, Daniel helped me understand the concept of identity, why and how identity can be decentralized, and how having self-sovereignty over your identity can change the relationships and the power dynamics between users and the apps we use today.
