Bridge Overview

There are several components that make up the Bridge ecosystem that allow end users to verify and store their personal information, and securely transmit that information via peer-to-peer or blockchain communication.

Bridge Protocol

The secure messaging protocol that allows a Bridge Passport to communicate directly with another Bridge Passport via peer-to-peer communications.

Bridge Passport

The container used to store the Bridge Protocol Key, Blockchain Wallets and Bridge Verified Claims to allow an entity to communicate using the Bridge Protocol and interact with the Bridge Protocol blockchain smart contract(s).

Bridge Verified Claims

Verified user information that is of a known claim type on the network that has been verified by a known network verification partner. This is expressed as a secure, portable encrypted claim package for transmission between passports.

Bridge Network

Bridge Marketplace

The marketplace that matches end users with verification providers on the Bridge Network offering verification services in exchange for network fees paid in BRDG.
