Check out this Ethereum project: so imagine a future where instead of having username and passwords for every single service we use, we only use one. "That already exists!" you might think. Indeed today you can log into many sites using Google or Facebook credentials. But that's Google or Facebook! It's not something "of the people". Here we are talking about an ID which is of the people, by the people for the people completely decentralized. Open to anyone. Anyone can create their own unique ID and have their own rights to it on this system. It's called uPort. Yeah, i know, it's still in alpha, you can't really create your ID yet.

While this might not become the ultimate ID system used by government agencies (even though technically it could) and all the rest, it's certainly a first step in the right direction.
