    Merit is a platform for securely issuing, managing, and verifying credentials.Merit believes that truth and trust can change the world.Organizations, companies, universities, departments, associations, and agencies issue merits, giving people control of how and when those merits – and the private data they contain – are securely shared.

    This allows entire industries and communities to trust a single platform to verify qualifications, versus relying on stand-alone systems, paper certificates, analog ledgers, and plastic identification cards.The Merit platform is a person’s digital wallet of credentials from every organization.

    We create the tools for organizations to issue merits – a representation of a personal or professional accomplishment that can act as a qualification. These merits are the verified and unique components of someone’s identity. By digitally capturing merits making them readily available and verifiable, the people who hold these merits can take advantage of relevant opportunities, achieve their own goals, and ultimately shape their futures.
