Hypersign Community Update: June 2023

TL;DR, Hypersign initiated an important node upgrade proposal for eliminating duplication of Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs). The World Wide Web Consortium recognized our did:hid method, underlining our commitment to SSI. We launched Hack:DiD, an innovative hackathon to expand Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) knowledge. The event started with workshops across India, and we're now welcoming submissions.

Technical Updates

A governance proposal for a node upgrade has been put forward and submitted to the Hypersign Identity Network ( This upgrade introduces a vital feature, conceptualized from our customer feedback, who is using Hypersign's Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) to construct a Web3 Reputation System.

The new feature mandates that a blockchain address already associated with a DID Document cannot be added to another DID Document unless it's removed from the original DID Document or the said Document is deactivated. This approach effectively prevents the possibility of dual reputation scoring for DID Documents.


We are excited to announce a significant achievement for Hypersign — our did:hid method has been officially recognized and accepted by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). This demonstrates our unwavering commitment and continuous efforts to broaden the scope of W3C DiD core specifications to cover Web3 use cases.

W3C's acceptance of the did:hid method aligns with Hypersign's mission to empower the web3 ecosystem by creating technology that helps manage self-sovereign identity in a decentralized way. It reaffirms our contribution to the evolution of digital identity management and further solidifies our position as pioneers in the SSI and Blockchain field.

As the month began, Hypersign was gearing up for a long-term initiative called Hack:DiD. This innovative hackathon is a cornerstone of our mission to empower the web3 ecosystem through education and the growth of Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) knowledge. Hack:DiD is a hackathon launched by Hypersign in association with Dojima Network; a hackathon is a two-month event between 10th June and 15th August.

Bengaluru Workshop — 10th June

Our journey began in Bengaluru, the heart of India's tech hub. This is where we kicked off Hack:DiD with a grand inauguration. The Hypersign team, in collaboration with Dojima and our workspace partner Bhive Workspace, ignited the spark for this exciting journey. The workshop in Bengaluru was filled with memorable moments and engaging discussions.
