What the experts are saying
"Gitcoin Passport will allow us to drastically improve our ability to prove that each account which participates in a Grants round is unique, in whatever way a community would like to define a unique identity."
[Passport is] starting to bootstrap this decentralized society flywheel... of more people wanting to collect more attestations about them, which creates more utility for them, which makes them want to collect more attestations about them. This is sort of like the grand vision of creating a more regenerative society using this dense network of intersectional identities.

Who can read my data?
Who can write into my Passport?
Only you can write into your Passport. This is important: you grant access to apps that you visit when you sign a message with your wallet granting access to your stream (like when you connect to the Gitcoin Passport app). Your Passport requires your unique wallet signature to allow write operations, and only apps that want to write to your passport need to request you to sign those messages.
