Making the world more accessible
The more easily people can prove who they are, the more easily they can access the services they need. At Trinsic, we believe in a “one tap future” where people can prove things about themselves with a single tap or click of a button. Our infrastructure powers the products that make this future of identity possible.
Digital identity today is not good
How is it that humanity is sending people to space, editing genes, and developing scary-good AI, but digital identity is still done primarily through taking a selfie and a photograph of a physical document? As the world gets increasingly digital, the solution is not to take more pictures of more documents.
IDtech is the future of identity
IDtech is changing the game. IDtech is the name for the category of products that empower users to take control of their identity, share their data safely, and more securely access the things they need. If a fintech product helps you manage your money, an IDtech product helps you manage your identity and data. Trinsic is the leading infrastructure for building IDtech products and platforms.
The future of identity is open
By open, we mean people should be able to prove things about their identity anywhere. It shouldn’t matter what organization, industry, or geography because the future of identity is built on open standards and technologies. We partner with the leading standards and community organizations in the decentralized identity space to ensure that Trinsic is interoperable with the latest and most popular standards.
Who are we?
Originally, we wanted to build an IDtech product based on decentralized identity technology. But we spent so much time laying the foundations, we couldn’t imagine maintaining all of the infrastructure indefinitely. We realized instead of trying to build the infrastructure and an application-layer solution, we’d specialize in the infrastructure. We released an API that grew to have >100 developers in just a few months—that was when we knew just how many others were facing the same problem.
Join our team
We are a remote team made up of diverse individuals who are tackling one of the world’s toughest challenges—digital identity. We know the future of identity isn’t just possible, it’s inevitable. Become a fellow Trinsineer, and have fun tackling some of the world’s hardest problems!

Trinsic’s is IDtech infrastructure. Trinsic’s API makes it easy to build identity products that helps users manage their data and identity. Our infrastructure is made up of decentralized technologies such as digital wallets and verifiable credentials.
Trinsic’s customers are IDtech providers. We call them providers because our customers build products and platforms that provide the benefits of IDtech to a specific ecosystem, industry, vertical, or marketplace.
Trinsic is a pioneer in the decentralized identity and SSI space. Our infrastructure is made up of decentralized technologies and SSI open standards. While decentralized identity and SSI may have nuanced differences, both terms are largely used interchangeably to refer to standardized, user-controlled digital identity technology that will significantly improve the state of identity for both consumers and organizations. Click here for more information on what these terms mean and how they relate to IDtech.
Trinsic is based on the latest open web standards for decentralized identity, ensuring your product will be interoperable with other products using the same open standards.
The open standards that Trinsic supports include the W3C Verifiable Credential Data Model, W3C Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs), BBS+ Signatures, ToIP Trust Registry Specification, and the OpenID Connect protocol. For more information, read our . Currently Trinsic supports the ION, Sovrin, and Indy protocols, but we aim to be ledger agnostic as quickly as possible.
Verifiable credentials are standardized, digital certificates that make it easy to share information online in a private and secure way. Verifiable credentials are unique from other kinds of digital documents because they enable you to verify the following things:
- who issued the credential,
- who the credential was issued to,
- if the information within the credential has been tampered with,
- and whether the credential has been revoked.
For more information on verifiable credentials, read our documentation.
A user may recover wallet access through MFA (Multi-factor Authentication). One of the reasons we chose to use a hybrid cloud wallet is to allow multi-device synchronization and account recoverability.
Trinsic does not do implementation or consulting work, but we are happy to recommend a variety of implementation partners.
