IOP platform for credentialing services


Encouraged by the desire to give people back the right to their data, in a freedom-loving and open community of Internet enthusiasts, the vision of a decentral, freely usable and designable Internet with a secure and full-featured blockchain solution already matured in 2013. “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” (Henry Ford) The result is IOP Global GmbH that was established in 2020 and is located in Karlsruhe in Germany, which bundles knowledge and experience from a variety of fields and within a short time has grown into an internationally aligned, regionally rooted and worldwide leading company with a global network of ambassadors and passionate developers.
