Digital wallets could become or are already the gatekeepers to access blockchain systems - e.g. through listing hurdles. Furthermore, they are either dealing with crypto or self-sovereign identities, but never both.
For most real live use cases (e.g. buying / selling energy) we need both - identity & money. Minerva offers that in the most decentralized way via DIDs and Verifiable Credentials, standardized by the W3C.
This combination will enable solutions the Web2.0 can't offer:
Going beyond payment system monopolies
Password-less registration and login
Seamless integration with IoT devices
Low cost fraud prevention via smart contracts
GDPR friendly selective disclosure of data
