Polygon and Dock collaborate to simplify Verifiable Credential issuance

December 22, 2023

Dock's Verifiable Credentials Platform allows developers to create a Polygon DID and issue their first Verifiable Credential on Polygon in minutes.

Zug, Switzerland – 10 July, 2023 – Dock, a pioneer in the Decentralized Identity space, announces the integration with web3 identity leader, Polygon ID. Dock's Verifiable Credentials Platform now provides the easiest way to issue Polygon-based Verifiable Credentials, enabling developers to transition from initial setup to actual credential issuance within minutes. This collaboration paves the way for the widespread adoption of Verifiable Credentials by equipping developers with a set of tools to facilitate trusted and secure relationships between apps and users.

Dock’s innovative platform empowers developers to transform user data into fraud-proof and instantly Verifiable Credentials. Users can securely store these Verifiable Credentials off-chain within a compatible ID Wallet app, making them readily available for presentation to both apps and decentralized apps (dApps). These entities can validate the authenticity of these credentials in seconds, effectively making costly, time-consuming, and manual verification processes disappear.

This cutting-edge approach to portable, fraud-resistant, and instantly Verifiable Credentials is reshaping how organizations handle data issuance, with applications ranging from Know Your Customer (KYC) credentials to academic diplomas, marking a paradigm shift in data verification processes.

Leveraging Dock’s user-friendly platform, developers can effortlessly integrate Polygon ID through a streamlined API, automating the entire process of Verifiable Credentials issuance and bypassing the need to build any infrastructure. Dock provides the first ever Saas tooling for issuing Polygon ID credentials. In addition developer’s can take advantage of Polygon ID’s Zero-Knowledge Proof (ZKP) technology to reveal minimal information about users’ credentials and maintain the privacy of personal data.

This collaboration opens up decentralized identity and blockchain technology to a broader audience, truly democratizing access. It equips developers with the tools necessary to cultivate trusted, secure relationships between users and decentralized applications (dApps), all while upholding the fundamental principles of self-sovereign identity and prioritizing privacy.

“Dock’s developer friendly platform will expedite issuance of credentials for web3 developers everywhere. By just calling a few API endpoints, developers will be able to issue Polygon ID verifiable credentials without having to worry about hosting their own issuer node infrastructure” said Sebastian Rodriguez, VP of Product for Polygon ID.

“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with the Polygon ID team. Combining Polygon ID’s cutting edge infrastructure with Dock’s easy to use platform enables developers and technical teams to create the next generation of identity applications." said Nick Lambert, Dock’s CEO.
