The partnership will help future projects build and maintain communities
Discreet Labs is proud to announce a new partnership with Communities ID to bring a decentralized ID system to Findora.
Communities ID describes itself as a “Decentralized Identity as a service” (DaaS) project, offering “user.brandName” domains for projects and communities. Similar to ENS, they are building an omni-chain Web3 domain service and have already integrated with dozens of dApps and chains like Polygon, Ethereum, Base, BNB Chain, Optimism, and more.
Adding Findora will increase their reach as well as provide projects and communities on Findora with the ability to create their own brand-specific decentralized identities without any coding.
What Are DiDs?
Decentralized ID systems enable users to control their digital identities and own their data by putting it behind their private keys. Control of the data is no longer ceded to a centralized app. Decentralized identity systems in Web3 can enable users to grant access only to certain parts of their on-chain or online identity.
When combined with zk-tech, DID systems will let users access gated websites or services without sharing any of the personally identifying information. Instead, they can simply issue proof of their credentials to access an app or special promotion.
Communities ID is taking this idea a step further and combining it with human-readable domains to make Web3 as easy to read as Web2.
What Communities.ID Offers
Communities ID combines decentralized identities with human-readable addresses.
Instead of using wallet addresses, which are hard to read, remember, and understand, people can use a Communities ID domain to send tokens e.g., using “Sam.findora” instead of “0x…ab34.”
But Communities ID isn’t just remaking ENS. They are adding EVM chains to create a multi-chain ecosystem and adding other functionality as well. They offer a no-code solution for projects and networks to create their own exclusive and customized top-level domains.
Communities ID offers multiple out-of-the-box tokenomic models for a project’s domain mints, including the ability to mimic Friend Tech’s model. Communities ID also offers Telegram and wallet integrations. Some example use-cases for Communities ID include:
- Use a Brand Name as a Top-Level Domain: By using a brand name as a top-level domain, communities can build their identity and facilitate growth
- Create a Token-gated Telegram Community: Grant access to a Telegram group only to people with a certain top-level or subdomain
- Web2-friendly Social Wallet: Collaborate with ERC4337, MPC, and Passkey wallets to develop a Web2-friendly social wallet without the need for private and public keys.
Ultimately, their goal is to give projects the ability to develop communities around their chosen identity and have the tools they need to create a thriving ecosystem.
The Importance of Human-Readable Address and Domains
IP addresses are long strings of numbers that are difficult for humans to read. By mapping these addresses to natural language names, human-readable domains have made the internet much more user-friendly. It’s the same with Web3. By mapping complex wallet addresses to a human-readable name, Web3 also becomes much easier to use.
“We’re excited to deploy on Findora and increase our reach,” a spokesman from Communities ID said. “We firmly believe that everyone wins as we expand identity solutions to more chains. We want to make it as easy as possible for users to interact with Web3 and make it building communities as easy as possible for new ecosystems.”
"Reputation, as my grandma taught me, is our greatest asset. We give more weight to ‘expert opinions,’ we value diplomas from one college more than another - this is all based on reputation. What if we could capture reputation to power better decision-making? What if we could increase security by decentralizing good security practices among MILLIONS of users? Identity services - that span multiple ecosystems, are robust and flexible, and allow a user to determine their level of exposure - can be curative of many of the ills of the online and on-chain worlds.
This partnership with Communities ID is the first of many to enhance Identity, Authentication, Reputation, and Accountability in the on-chain world. I am very much looking forward to our collaboration with Communities ID and cannot wait to see what will come out of it."
Findora is a Layer-1 protocol delivering zero-knowledge solutions to Web3.
Findora integrates two ledgers into a single chain: an EVM ledger for interoperability and a UXTO ledger optimized for zk operations. This dual-layer architecture lets Findora encrypt blockchain data for programmable transparency and public use. By providing new use cases, Findora’s zk tech prepares Web3 for real-world adoption.
We appreciate our developers and would love to onboard you to the Findora ecosystem. Please reach out, and join our social channels for more.
