What is a Sporran identity?

The Sporran wallet is a browser extension to read and display KILT Coin balances from the KILT blockchain identity protocol or from third-party applications. Sporran also allows users to sign and send transactions on the KILT blockchain.          


In December, new Sporran functionality will enable users to create a digital identity using KILT blockchain mechanisms. Sporran will act like a physical wallet that stores personal digital credentials, providing users with anonymity and control over their data when they present their information to online services. In particular, Sporran will store Verifiable Credentials and allow the user to sign them digitally.     


Accounts in Sporran are called “Identities” because they will be used to hold both KILT Coins and credentials.
