Secure, Self-Sovereign Decentralized Identity is Here
The Open Rights Exchange (ORE) Network is an open-source blockchain and protocol purpose-built for decentralized identity and managing the universal rights + assets associated with that identity. ORE Token is the native cryptocurrency of the platform.
The Open Rights Exchange was conceived in 2017 by technologist Stefan Roever, a two time award holder of Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum and was founder and CEO of Brokat Technologies, an encryption and banking software company. The ORE Network is run by the Open Rights Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the ORE Network community and driving utility for technologies related to the ORE Token.
The ORE Network Powers Secure Decentralized Identity
Optimized for Simplicity
Unlike other blockchain networks, the ORE Network is not designed to support general-purpose compute or complex smart contracts. Instead, it is purpose-built to create blockchain wallet accounts and enable the declaration of ownership over specific identity artifacts. This approach keeps the network lightweight and easy to use, while still providing robust identity management capabilities.
All data on the network is hashed, which means that it cannot be reverse-engineered or used to identify specific individuals. This is crucial for protecting personal privacy in a world where data breaches and identity theft are all too common. Additionally, the network is designed to be opt-in for verified credentials, which means that users can choose to share their identity information only with trusted parties.
Zero-knowledge proofs provide a powerful way to verify identity claims without revealing any personal information. This works by creating opaque assertions in the public domain that are only accessible if you already know the data. For example, if User 1 has asserted that they are over the age of 21, and User 2 agrees with that claim, the ORE Network can verify that the claim is true without revealing any personal information.
Multi-Chain is the Future
The ORE Network provides predictability, scalability, and performance in a simple, cost-effective package.
Simple APIs To Develop on Any Blockchain
The Open Rights Exchange is built to be simple-to-use and compatible with all chains.
A single password — not a key — is provided as the entry to not just the Open Rights Exchange, but to other chains including Ethereum, Algorand and EOS — with even more chains being added every quarter.
Core services are continually being developed to further support more chains and are based on open-source libraries that make it easy to develop plug-ins for new chains.
Applications built on the Open Rights Exchange work across multiple blockchains and are able to easily connect to the off-chain world. Consumers manage all of their assets and rights under one account, instead of having pools of capital siloed on different blockchains and off-chain accounts.
