Microsoft today announced that they are working with Tierion on a service that links data to the blockchain to prove the data’s integrity and existence. Tierion will be used in conjunction with Microsoft’s decentralized identity initiative to generate attestations that can be verified without relying on a trusted authority.
“Tierion is a leader in anchoring data to blockchains.” says Daniel Buchner, Microsoft’s Head of Decentralized Identity. “We’re excited to collaborate with them to advance our decentralized identity initiative. There is great potential to help organizations improve security and reduce compliance costs.”
“Working with Microsoft helps us further our goal of building a global proof engine.” says Tierion CEO, Wayne Vaughan. “For many use cases it’s better to link your existing systems to the blockchain instead of building your own blockchain. We were thrilled when Microsoft approached us about working together.”
