ONT ID provides a self-sovereign system of data authorization and ownership confirmation, thereby granting true control to users. The entire process of ID generation, storage, update, and other critical operations are fully automated and decentralized in nature, thereby allowing the users operating within the ecosystem to have full control and ownership of any data that may be associated with them. Discrete IDs linked across various ecosystems can have multiple delegates and attributes. In the form of verifiable credentials, entities can make and verify claims in terms of data ownership, access rights, and validation. Since any entity that is part of the network can do this, this makes the ONT ID framework a strong contender to build an account mechanism with a high degree of disintermediation.
