What can I do with my KILT DID?

Identity is built around your DID by adding credentials to it. You choose how much of your identity you want to keep private and what you want to share.

You can make parts of your identity public by linking multiple things to your DID, including:


  • A unique, easily-readable web3name

  • Any credentials you want to make public such as social media handles, GitHub accounts and email addresses. In machine identity, these credentials would be the static and dynamic properties of the device, such as certificates, rights, roles or capabilities.

  • Your Polkadot ecosystem addresses (and soon, Ethereum).


DIDs can also be used to sign any digital file – PDFs, audio, video, software – in a secure, private way on your device via this website. The drag & drop interface makes it easy to sign, send, and verify that your file hasn’t been tampered with.
