A New Trinsic Platform Walkthrough

New to Trinsic and looking for a quick way to learn how it all works? We got you covered with a full technical walkthrough of the Trinsic platform, courtesy of Trinsic’s co-founder and CTO Tomislav Markovski. This walkthrough was originally presented at did:hack 2023 and is a great tool to learn the fundamental capabilities of Trinsic.

Below we include a brief intro to Trinsic, breakdown the platform walkthrough, and share resources on how to get started building with Trinsic.

Trinsic is an enabler of verifiable credential products

If you are reading this now, you most likely have identified a problem within a certain industry, use case, or workflow that verifiable credentials can solve. You need to build the perfect product that implements verifiable credential technology in order to make your solution real and adoptable. Trinsic is the ideal verifiable credential infrastructure partner to do just that.

Trinsic takes care of all of your infrastructure needs, so you can focus on the following two things:

  1. Building an incredible product

  2. Selling that product to an ecosystem of users

While you are focused on your product and users, Trinsic takes care of things like, credential issuance, credential verification, identity wallet creation, ecosystem governance, scalability, interoperability, and more so you don’t have to, saving your team time and resources.
