  1. When DID and DWN are used together, they create a network of DID– Secure messaging, data storage, and credential sharing that can replace single protocols with universal standards for all kinds of semantic data transmissions.
  2. In today’s world, many actions require the establishment of a relationship of trust between the parties. Individuals, organizations and businesses can use DIDthe sand DWN to broadcast credentials that anyone can independently find and verify.
