The European Digital Identity Wallet – what, why, and how

By 2025, all EU Member States (and Norway) must offer an “identity wallet” to their citizens. One that the “citizen can use anywhere in Europe to do anything from paying your taxes to renting a bicycle”, as Commission President Ursula von der Leyen phrased it when the idea was launched in 2020.

What is this “European Digital Identity Wallet”, why does the EU require it, and how will it be used? Will this change the entire identity landscape? And how will it affect fintech? Jon Ølnes from Signicat will present the facts, the unknowns, and the risks of EU Wallet, and Erling Skard from Kantega will show how it might work.
