Introduction

The MATTR Platform is built around a set of modular and flexible building blocks known as our Platform Core. These are the raw tools needed to establish digital trust. Though these capabilities will be made more effective and efficient over time, they will also remain fairly stable as the basis of the MATTR Platform. Our Platform Core is built with several important principles in mind, including privacy-by-design and the 10 Principles for Digital Identity.

Structure

Platform Core is designed as a set of simple APIs that are available for all of our users, with operational tools and documentation. These consumable capabilities can be used to create solutions for end-users, as demonstrated by our Platform Extensions, and they work natively with our Developer Tools which provide additional interfaces to enhance the developer experience.

Platform Core is organized into the following set of features
