Dock’s groundbreaking blockchain technology is redefining how you trust data. It is an ideal infrastructure for a completely permissionless digital credential ecosystem enabling anyone to issue, store, and verify Verifiable Credentials and create Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs),
The Dock blockchain forms the basis of trust by maintaining a verifiable registry of all DIDs, proof of credentials issued (if the credential is anchored), public cryptographic keys, and revocation registries. Its advanced architecture prevents unauthorized users from accessing or modifying any data in the credentials.
Credentials issued on the Dock blockchain are stored off-chain, typically in a holder's digital wallet app, along with the cryptographic key pairs. To ensure data privacy, the only data registered on the Dock chain are the issuer and holder's DIDs, the Credential Schema (its "template"), and the Revocation Registries. The issuer may also record the hash of a credential on the Dock blockchain; this is called Anchoring.
