BrightID is a social identity network. It is superficially similar to a social network, but its purpose is to allow people to prove to applications that they aren’t using multiple accounts. BrightID solves the unique identity problem through the creation and analysis of a social graph. BrightID is a public good that exists for the benefit of humanity. It is a nonintrusive, decentralized, open source technology seeking to reform identity verification–and thus lay the groundwork for a free and democratic society.
