The Elastos ecosystem includes a dedicated blockchain to provide the essential functions of DIDs. By using a dedicated sidechain, we ensure the highest possible availability of the critical identity data required by dApps and products on Elastos.

Recognizing the importance of self-sovereign identities and the global movement to a standardized decentralized identity model, the Elastos Foundation has joined the Decentralized Identity Foundation (DIF) and dedicated significant resources to ensure that its DID services follow the W3C Decentralized Identifier (DID) specification.
