Mask Network Integrates Next.ID As Its Decentralized Identity Provider


Mask Network is proud to announce that we’re partnering with Next.ID as its Decentralized-Identity-as-a-Service (DIaaS) of choice. Mask Network’s major overarching goal is to be a bridge for all internet users to eventually gain exposure and understanding of Web3, and this is a huge step in that direction.

What is Next.ID?

Next.ID is a decentralized identity aggregator that’s building the base layer of identities. It takes a unique approach to decentralized identities by seamlessly integrating both Web2 and Web3 accounts, creating a highly interoperable layer where both coexist.

This allows, for example, Twitter users to create social networks with MetaMask holders, building completely new social networks from the ground up in a permissionless manner.

It’s empowered to do this via 3 technical innovations:

  • ProofService, a blockchain-like model that ensures data integrity
  • KVService, data organization and storage to keep information flow seamless
  • RelationService, an aggregator that integrates existing IDs, ID queries, and IDs bound to and in parallel to Next.ID

Why Next.ID?

Mask Network is committed to working with decentralized protocols with the same vision: an interconnected space not dominated by any single entities. Next.ID’s founding principles as a DIaaS facilitates such a future, working with – instead of competing with – other DID providers to build an interoperable future.
