What is a Web3 Identity tool? 

A Web3 identity tool allows you to build a single location where people can connect with and learn about you.

It could be used to showcase your work portfolio, get a run down of your own projects, understand who you are as an individual or a combination of any of the above.

The key thing here is that in Web3 you own your identity.

Why do you need a Web3 identity?

In Web 2.0, you were required to build out your persona and create content on platforms that other people owned.

Think about your Twitter account, Facebook page, Instagram and more.

A lot of the information across these platforms is the same, just packaged up to fit the medium.

However, you had to manually create, amend, update, and maintain the information on each platform.

Add to that mix your messenger links, email accounts, and other contact details and there are hundred and one ways for you to communicate with others, sign into services, and resolve any issues.

Some tools aimed to help solve this by creating things like a "sign in with Google" link. These wqere a step in the right direction.
