Elastos is meant to be an ecosystem where data and identity is protected and anyone can transact peer-to-peer in a trustless manner. Tuum Tech, a development arm for Elastos, has created an easy way for any crypto or non-crypto person to create their own Decentralized ID (DID). Essentially, this could be compared to a login identity that can be used across several Elastos applications. Here is a brief introduction of the service.

Below is a quick tutorial on how to create your very own DID, protected by the blockchain!

Go to and click “Let’s Get Started” on the bottom of the page

Type in your personal info or sign in through Twitter and select, “Done Adding Details” when complete.

Select “Confirm”.

Record your 12 mnemonic word phrase and store it securely and offline, and select “Next”.

Select each word in the order it was shown and hit “Continue”.

Confirm your information and select “Finish”

Your DID will publish in 5-10 minutes and you will see a “Complete” message in the middle of the screen.

As stated on the bottom of the last screen, download elastOS and import your newly created DID right away! With this DID, you’ll be able to participate in all Elastos dApps and functions.
