In this white paper, Goode Intelligence introduces the DID (Decentralized Identity) Alliance’s Global Architecture for Digital Identity (GADI), a trusted platform to enable decentralized transactions

The Goode Intelligence team define their version of digital identity, review current issues in digital identity transactions, and present the aims and architecture of GADI.

“Their vision for GADI is to achieve true interoperability among DID systems by deploying requisite technologies and processes that are outside the scope of existing interoperability efforts such as W3C, DIF, and Hyperledger Aries. GADI enables cross-ledger authentication, empowering identity platforms to cooperate to provide global coverage. It enables service providers to trust any Verifiable Credential (VC) from any identity platform and a mechanism in which to settle transaction costs via a process called GADI Token Exchange.”

The Goode Intelligence team explains that the DID Alliance has pinned hopes of differentiating GADI from other interoperability solutions with the GADI digital address.

At the heart of GADI is the Digital Address; the Digital Address is a special GADI identifier issued to an individual by a certified Digital Address Issuer after Know Your Customer (KYC) processes have been followed. Trust, Accountability, Inclusiveness and User Ownership are at the heart of GADI
