A fascinating intellectual debate is emerging in the world of decentralized identity. Today, Vitalik represents Soulbound NFTs, while Disco’s Evin McMullen takes the side of VCs (verifiable credentials). From your credit history to your college degree, what is it that defines you? What does decentralized, trustless, digital identity look like? After listening to these two gigabrains hash it out, we’re convinced that the real winner of this debate… is humanity. ------ 📣 METAMASK | The Easiest Buy in Crypto https://bankless.cc/buy  ------ 🚀 SUBSCRIBE TO NEWSLETTER:          https://newsletter.banklesshq.com/    🎙️ SUBSCRIBE TO PODCAST:                 http://podcast.banklesshq.com/    ------ BANKLESS SPONSOR TOOLS:  ⚖️ ARBITRUM | SCALED ETHEREUM https://bankless.cc/Arbitrum  ❎ ACROSS | BRIDGE TO LAYER 2 https://bankless.cc/Across  🏦 ROCKET POOL | DECENTRALIZED ETH STAKING https://bankless.cc/RocketPool  👻 AAVE V3 | LEND & BORROW CRYPTO https://bankless.cc/aave  ⚡️ MAKER DAO | THE DAI STABLECOIN  https://bankless.cc/MakerDAO   🦁 BRAVE | THE BROWSER NATIVE WALLET https://bankless.cc/Brave  ------ Topics Covered: 0:00 Intro 4:30 Setting the Stage 7:50 Chains and Identities 11:46 Governance 15:14 The Data Backpack 21:22 Non-transferability 27:52 Token Externalities 34:32 Soulbound Privacy 41:30 Proving Negatives 46:20 Inclusion & Neutrality 50:19 The Disco Pill 56:05 All Directions at Once 1:02:36 A Case Study 1:07:49 Zooming Out 1:12:50 Closing ------ Resources: Evin on Twitter: https://twitter.com/provenauthority?s=20&t=Y6vQEWWHoUCqnF-wAm81qg  Vitalik on Twitter: https://twitter.com/VitalikButerin?s=20&t=Y6vQEWWHoUCqnF-wAm81qg  Disco: https://www.disco.xyz/  Soulbound https://vitalik.ca/general/2022/01/26/soulbound.html  ----- Not financial or tax advice.
