This proposal is part A of 2 proposals that tackles the same problem-solution definition below.
Litentry is currently missing end-to-end usecase enabled by the IdentityHub. Litentry is an identity aggregator but is experiencing bottlenecks at both ends of it’s product journey. Therefor not being able to deliver on it’s value proposition. The first one located at the start of the product journey where data forms the input for identity based usecases and the second one being at the end of the product journey where data output in the form of identity insights unlocks usecases.
Additional context for this specific proposal
To generate verifiable credentials there is the need to receive clean and structured on-chain data which requires an indexer to make sense of the raw blockchain data. Structuring and labeling tha data so it provides an insight or ‘truth statement’ about the subjects identity or characteristics.
Objective: Develop a Litentry Data Adapter that facilitates the creation of verifiable credentials through API endpoints, allowing projects and indexers to easily structure and deliver on-chain data for credential generation. This could be in the form of a small web app or interactive documentation.
The Litentry Data Adapter will address the bottleneck of input data by defining a standardized logic and data format for receiving raw blockchain data via API endpoints. It aims to empower projects and indexers with the ability to structure, label, and provide meaningful insights about subjects' identities or characteristics, facilitating efficient credential creation.
By executing these proposals, Litentry can overcome the challenges it currently faces in delivering its value proposition by addressing data input and output bottlenecks, ultimately enhancing the overall user experience and utility of the platform.
Litentry is a platform that helps people manage their identities, but it has some problems that need to be fixed. One problem is that it's hard to get the right information to create identity-based things. Another problem is that it's hard to use the information to make useful things.
The Litentry Data Adapter is a tool that will help fix these problems. It will make it easier for people to give Litentry the right information to create things like verifiable credentials.
The Litentry Data Adapter has some cool features. It will make it easy for people to give Litentry the right information by using a standard format. It will also give examples of how to format the information. And it will let people choose what information they want to use.
Using the Litentry Data Adapter will help Litentry make better things for people. It will make it easier for people to use Litentry and get the things they need.
Love the idea! In case Litentry doesn't develop a data adaptor, what alternative options could we explore?
The data adapter is a good way for consistent data input but I believe practically, there's just too much work to be done, from both technical and collaborative aspect. And it's not an one-time effort either, most likely it would be a continuous task
