About Us

Dock was founded with a mission to solve universal problems with existing data solutions: data silos and gatekeepers, untrusted and inaccurate information, incompatibilities across platforms, inefficiencies with verifying data, and lack of control and privacy for users.

In today’s world, accurate and individually-owned data is more important than ever. Our ability to navigate through society depends heavily on being able to accurately capture and prove various pieces of information that represent who we are and our accomplishments.

These pieces of information can be anything from a passport proving our identity and citizenship, a graduation diploma proving our education, or a vocational license proving our ability to work in a designated field. Digital credentials are virtual representations of these important pieces of data which are essential in our lives and careers, but there are many problems with how this data is captured, shared, and controlled.

Dock is open and permissionless across our technology, network and governance. By enabling any organization or developer to issue via Dock, we can work together across markets and industries to unlock a better future world powered by secure, individually-owned verifiable credentials.
