What is Anima
Anima is a decentralised identity protocol for managing the issuance and verification of your identity. It aims to solve the problem of identifying a user online. Anima provides a frictionless experience for users to manage and share their identity using their existing wallets (such as Metamask or Ledger). With Anima using your identity online is as easy, fast and secure as using your government issued ID at your local nightclub. Anima gives you true ownership over your identity online by allowing you to create a secure, decentralized and reusable identity that only you can access and share. We call this your Anima, an embodiment of self-sovereign identity. You can visualize your Anima kind of like a personal safe box, that is used to store Web2 and Web3 identity attributes. One-time verification and issuance of identity attributes can allow you to access a traditional banking platform, fund a new project in return for a token allocation, or signal you are one person to a third party, all in a couple seconds. There are two major use cases enabled by our verification technology today: reusable KYC and proof of personhood.
