TL;DR, January witnessed major strides in Hypersign's journey, particularly in the realm of Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI). A key highlight was the launch of the Prajna Testnet, marking a significant advancement in SSI technology. This testnet, based on the Jagrat testnet, focuses on privacy, interoperability, and correct implementation of W3C specifications. Additionally, Hypersign engaged in creating a CosmWasm based Proof-of-Concept for Cosmos Ecosystem, aiming to provide a reputation score to Decentralised Identifiers. January also saw significant partnerships with entities like Chainlink and Reef, focusing on on-chain KYC and real-world asset tokenization.
Launch of Prajna Testnet
A pivotal development, the Prajna Testnet, represents a leap in SSI technology and on-chain KYC. This testnet emphasizes privacy, interoperability, and compliance with W3C specifications. It introduces privacy enhancements like zero-knowledge proofs and supports various cryptographic keys and wallets like Keplr, Metamask. Prajna fosters interoperability through Interchain Blockchain Communication (IBC) and offers tools like the Hypersign SSI SDK and Encrypted Data Vault. The network also introduces fixed SSI transaction fees for cost efficiency. Read more about Prajna Testnet.
