What if your digital identity could be as secure and under your control as your physical ID? Join us on The MoneyPot as we explore the cutting-edge world of reusable digital IDs with our esteemed guest, Aravind Narayan from the London Stock Exchange. We'll transport you back to the early days of the internet, tracing the evolution of digital identity verification from the wild west of passwords to the more sophisticated federated identities supported by tech giants like Google and Facebook. Aravind introduces the game-changing idea of reusable digital IDs, where user-controlled wallets that leverage selective disclosure and decentralization could revolutionize security and privacy. We also delve into the fascinating concept of verifiable credentials, which use blockchain technology to compile your digital claims—such as educational and employment history—into a secure, easily manageable identity.

But that's not all! We tackle the regional complexities of digital identity systems, comparing centralized models like India's Aadhaar with the privacy-centric approaches seen in Europe. Our conversation explores the cultural and governmental barriers to digital ID adoption in the UK, shedding light on the evolving role of governments and the implications these technologies might have on personal privacy and state power. Wrapping up on a lighter note, we discuss the whimsical idea of household robots taking over mundane chores, such as doing the dishes, and reflecting on the unsettling nature of certain TV shows. Don't forget to stay connected with us on your preferred podcast platforms, LinkedIn, and the Money 2020 website for more insightful discussions and updates.
