A fascinating intellectual debate is emerging in the world of decentralized identity. Today, Vitalik Buterin represents Soulbound NFTs, while Disco’s Evin McMullen takes the side of VCs (verifiable credentials).

From your credit history to your college degree, what is it that defines you? What does decentralized, trustless, digital identity look like?

After listening to these two gigabrains hash it out, we’re convinced that the real winner of this debate… is humanity.
