Unique Identification ≠ Big Government

  1. An identification number could be lost, and with it any record of past transactions, or reputation, we may have built with that identity. Just as with cryptocurrencies, the loss of an identification number is unrecoverable.
  2. Such an identity, when held on a device, can be viewed by a malicious observer, or may become available to a malicious person when a device is lost or stolen.
  3. If such an identity is completely untraceable to a human being (full anonymity), it offers the opportunity for illegal activity that hurts us all, such as in the cases of theft, money laundering related to human trafficking, etc.
  1. With complete anonymity, some people thrive, e.g. thieves, and other people lose, e.g. their victims, and the majority of the people are relatively unaffected.
  2. With complete openness, some thrive, e.g., dictatorial governments, and other people lose, i.e., some groups of people. The majority of the people are exposed to loss of privacy.
