In 2018, 27 EU Member States, Norway, and Liechtenstein signed a declaration creating the European Blockchain Partnership (EBP). The EBP group assists the European Commission with the establishment of a European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI).
EBSI is a joint initiative from the European Commission and the EBP. The vision of EBSI is to support the creation of reliable cross-border public services..
Since 2020, EBSI has been deploying a network of distributed nodes across Europe, supporting applications focused on selected use cases.EBSI is the de facto choice for any cross-border application.
Our project: EBSI4ES
Our project has three activities:
EBSI is conceived as a peer-to-peer network of interconnected nodes.
35 nodes connected to the network are counted. 20 countries have at least one node. Spain has three operational EBSI nodes
Spanish universities will provide verifiable credentials of their academic qualifications.
A European Self Sovereign Identity ESSIF will allow citizens to identify themselves in cross-border services. Citizens will be able to manage their identity attributes. FNMT has created an identification credential based on ESSIF
EBSI case of use
Our vision is to leverage blockchain to the creation of cross-border services for public administrations and their ecosystems to verify information and make services trustworthy
Self-Sovereign Identity model in Europe, allowing citizens to create and control their own identity across borders. A digital wallet stores their identity credentials securely.
