What is Polygon ID?

Created by Charanraj Shetty, Modified on Fri, 24 Jun 2022 at 11:29 AM by Mayank Singhal

Polygon ID is a private and self-sovereign identity solution powered by zero-knowledge cryptography. To start, Polygon ID enables a whole host of features previously inaccessible to DAOs. It will be integrated with Polygon DAO beginning today, and many more DAOs to come soon. 

It is a digital identity infrastructure for developers and partners built on the open-source iden3 protocol, the circom language, and the Zk toolkit. These are the most used tools to learn and develop ZK applications in the blockchain space. It utilizes the power of Zk-SNARKS to generate what we call “verifiable claims” on an Identity.


Our vision and guiding principles are to provide a self-sovereign, decentralized, and private digital identity infrastructure layer on top of which, an unlimited number of use cases can be built with a common denominator: privacy by default.
