What are Digital Twins?

A digital twin is a virtual representation that serves as the real-time digital counterpart of a physical object or process.

Since NASA first began experimenting with the technology in the 1960s, digital twins have been used across a variety of industries to:

  • Simulate the outcome of planned events or procedures
  • Reduce product development cycle costs and time
  • Improve efficiency and increase market agility
  • Identify trends to improve business operations
  • And more!

What is a Citopia Self-Sovereign Digital Twin™?

A Citopia Self-Sovereign Digital Twin™ (SSDT) is a digital
twin whose owner and/or controller has the ability to
participate as an autonomous economic agent in trusted
Web3 transactions.

Citopia SSDT™ is a universal translator and encrypted
locked data vault which is only accessible by the SSDT’s
controller.

The SSDT™ stores a combination of static and real-time
data to log an entity’s journey throughout its lifetime.

How do Citopia SSDTs work in MOBI’s Web3 Infrastructure?

Citopia allows entities to onboard their SSDTs with anchors in a decentralized trust network such as the Integrated Trust Network using W3C’s Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) Standard.

The SSDT controller can participate as an autonomous economic agent in trusted transactions by issuing Verifiable Credentials (VCs) and Verifiable Presentations per W3C’s VC Standard.

Citopia SSDTs™ leverage Zero-Knowledge Proofs and other advanced cryptographic methods to give users control over who sees their data and how that data is used.
