Anima is a decentralized identity protocol. It enables users to decentralize and self-manage identity attributes such as a Proof of Personhood or official Identity Proof including passports or ID cards. With Anima, users can share specific identity attributes without having to disclose their full ID. Anima enables new fair systems for web3 such as Fairdrops or democratic models for DAOs including one member one vote. Communities can also use the protocol to create claims and badges for reputation systems.

The DeFi Labs team, a Berlin-based blockchain company, founded Humanbound as an infrastructure to oversee on-chain identity. Humanbound runs on the Violet protocol, a composable identity managementprotocol.Humanbound is that seamless interface between the world of DApps andhumanity–seeking to ensure a secure interaction.The Humanbound token is a soul-bound token, meaning that it isnon-transferrable, and it is used for on-chain identity and a symbolism ofachievements.
