Description
============================

A few months ago, we (Caelum Labs), the company behind this meetup, received a Grant from the Web3 Foundation to work on an open-source Digital Identity library for Blockchain made in Rust. And so we did :)

After months of hard work, we have opened the libraries to the world. So, on December 3rd we plan to explain the ins and outs of this Self-Sovereign Identity framework we’ve been working on in Substrate for the web3 ecosystem.

If you want to learn more about our Tech stack and solution join us for an evening where you can learn how to use our set of libraries.

We are eager to share what we have built with you. Your feedback will be more than welcome.

So please join us if you wish to learn about:

- Digital Identity on Polkadot & Substrate
- Working with DIDs (Decentralized Identifiers) and VC (Verifiable
Credentials), the web3 standards.
- Understanding Zero Knowledge Proofs with Zenroom (A
Cryptographic Virtual Machine)

Also, we will show you our first version for the Personal Identity Container on a Raspberry Pi based on Decode OS (Devuan + TOR).

If any of the words we used don’t sound familiar, don’t worry at all, we will go step by step explaining each and every concept :)

This meetup is organized by Caelum Labs.

Hace unos meses, nosotros (Caelum Labs), la empresa que organiza este meetup, recibimos un Grant de la Fundación Web3 para trabajar en una biblioteca de identidad digital de código abierto para Blockchain hecha en Rust. Y así lo hicimos :)

Después de meses de duro trabajo hemos hecho públicas las librerías. Por lo tanto, el 3 de diciembre queremos explicar los entresijos de este framework de identidad digital soberana en el que hemos estado trabajando en Substrate para el ecosistema web3.

Si quieres conocer más sobre esta solución y el tech stack te invitamos a venir y aprender a usar nuestro conjunto de librerías.

Estamos deseando compartir todo lo que hemos construido contigo. Tu feedback será más que bienvenido.
