What are the products built by cheqd?

cheqd has built a blockchain, the cheqd network, using the Cosmos SDK. The network facilitates the exchange of trusted, verifiable data off-chain (Verifiable Credentials), using on-chain identifiers (Decentralised Identifiers 'DIDs') to authenticate the verifiable data. This technology is called "Self-Sovereign Identity" and has since been labelled "Web5".
cheqd's identity product consists of network infrastructure, tooling and software development kits to enable our partners to utilise the cheqd network's functionality, including:

Roadmap and development

We are constantly developing our product in different ways - we have broken down our 2022 Roadmap into three digestible sections.
This work goes beyond purely identity - as we also want to make it easy for non-identity companies, consortiums and consultancies to begin using the cheqd product and network.
If you want to explore what we have already released in our latest software updates, have a look at the Changelog:

Standards

Building cheqd's product and network in line with formal technical standards is vital to ensure interoperability and to avoid vendor-lock-in. As such, we believe it is important to transparently lay out the technical standards and components of our network, token and identity functionality.
We have also Open Sourced all our Product work, so our partners and community can test, remix and extend the work in their own environments.
