How Identity Works in Web3 - Deepstash

How Identity Works in Web3

In Web3, Identity also works much differently than what we are used to today. Most of the time in Web3 apps, identities will be tied to the wallet address of the user interacting with the application.

Unlike Web2 authentication methods like OAuth or email + password, wallet addresses are completely anonymous unless the user decides to tie their own identity to it publicly.

If the user chooses to use the same wallet across multiple dapps, their identity is also seamlessly transferable across apps, which lets them build up their reputation over time.
