Decentralized Identity Verification is an open source ecosystem providing access to on-demand, secure identity verification. Governed by a staking mechanism designed to ensure compliance and good behavior within the ecosystem, grants users, requesters, and validators around the world access to low-cost reusable identity verification powered by CVC tokens.


Smart Contracts and Blockchains are at the core of As the network grows, Civic will stop being the only player in the ecosystem and new Requesters (IdR), Credential Wallets (Wallet), and Validators (IdV) start entering the system and interacting independently in the marketplace.

How It Works

The User approaches a Requester to use a service or purchase a good. The Requester queries the Credential Wallet for the required PII attested by an acceptable Validator. Upon User approval in the Credential Wallet, the information is transferred to the Requester in exchange for access, and the Validator(s) that issued the attestation(s) get paid. A validation process occurs if no valid attestation is found in the Credential Wallet.


  • Marketplace Protocol

    Marketplace Protocol

    The identity verification ecosystem trades in attestations marked as blockchain transactions to verify credentials. does not trade in personal information. This increases security, focuses on privacy and enables decentralization.

  • Gateway Protocol

    Gateway Protocol

    The Gateway Protocol is a cross-chain oracle token model that enables any application operating on a decentralized ledger, such as a dApp, to add a permissioning layer that adheres to a prespecified framework of rules. Toolkits

  • Smart Contracts

    Smart Contracts

    Smart Contracts are fundamental to the decentralized nature of A collection of rules, automations and agreements ensure that everyone participates fairly and positively to the ecosystem, leveraging the power of the CVC token.

  • Libraries


    A transparent ecosystem can only be built on open sourced libraries. These libraries are designed to enable ecosystem participants to easily and safely connect to the marketplace and participate in identity verification.

  • Applications


    The open source Applications provided here enable Requesters, Validators and Credential Wallet builders to focus more on running their business and meeting their requirements and less on coding on top of libraries or blockchains.
