Fractal ID x Avalanche: Bringing Decentralized Identity to the Avalanche Ecosystem

We are proud to announce that we will be deploying Fractal ID on Avalanche, the open, programmable smart contracts platform for decentralized applications (dApps).

Fractal ID is supporting Avalanche by bringing DIDs to the Avalanche ecosystem, enabling users to seamlessly jump from one dApp to another.

Seeing the opportunity in Avalanche

Avalanche is one of the fastest smart contracts platforms in the blockchain industry, as measured by time-to-finality. Avalanche is known for being highly interoperable, allowing for the creation of different subnets, with its blockchain serving as a common platform. Moreover, it enables high scalability; 4,500 transactions per second (TPS) at low gas fees.

These interoperability and scalability features present significant opportunities for developers and end users to grasp, and this is where Fractal ID DID can further simplify jumping to these opportunities.

Fractal ID DID for Avalanche ecosystem

Unlike previous implementations where Fractal ID was implemented with individual platforms, implementing DIDs for the whole Avalanche ecosystem unlocks features for dApps on Avalanche that are unique in the crypto space.

No-touch open DID registry

The DID registry is a privacy-preserving identity verification commons that enables direct on-chain identity verification.

As soon as the user connects their wallet, the dApp will be able to toggle the registry and discover the user’s identity credentials. That’s it. That’s how easy onboarding even for full identification requirements or proof-of-personhood use cases can be, maintaining the user’s privacy while providing a safe web3 environment for building. (See Figure 1.)

One login, access to all Avalanche dApps

Leveraging Fractal ID DID provides users with the ability to use different Avalanche dApps. Moreover, the DID registry is open not just for Fractal ID credentials. That means, whether you have Fractal ID or starting your KYC journey from scratch, you can still connect to the DID registry to access Avalanche’s networks.

Once a user verifies their identity for a dApp, they are instantly ready to use any other dApp without needing to go through a new KYC journey as Fractal ID verifiable credentials (VCs) are interoperable across all Avalanche networks. (See Figure 2.)

Benefits of Fractal ID Deployment on Avalanche

Fractal ID deployment on Avalanche aims to create a safe and privacy-preserving ecosystem for builders and users alike.

This implementation brings significant benefits to Avalanche ecosystem users, including:

  • Enabling Avalanche to seamlessly tap one of the broadest web3 communities with access to 150k+ pre-verified Fractal ID users who can be seamlessly onboarded with a click of a button.
  • Ensuring a regulatory-compliant ecosystem that protects users’ privacy as well as the network’s reputation.
  • Bringing back data ownership to users by providing them with reusable, selectively-disclosable verifiable credentials.
