SpiderDAO and BOTLabs announce hardware development collaboration
- KILT is a decentralized blockchain protocol for issuing self-sovereign, anonymous verifiable credentials
- Partners will create a powerful tool for consumer privacy and protection
- SpiderDAO’s multilayer governance setup is based on software and hardware tools built on Polkadot
SpiderDAO and BOTLabs GmbH, the developers of KILT Protocol, announced plans to integrate identities composed of VCs (Verifiable Credentials) and DIDs (Decentralized Identifiers) using the KILT Protocol into SpiderDAO’s range of routers, Invezz learned from a press release.
KILT issues anonymous verifiable credentials
KILT is a decentralized blockchain protocol for issuing self-sovereign, anonymous verifiable credentials. It can represent identity while ensuring anonymity, bringing the old trust process to real world verifiable credentials like ID cards to the digital world, but not at the expense of data privacy.

It can also be utilized to create identifiers for services, machines, routers, and anything that identities can be developed on.
A powerful tool for consumer privacy and protection
By combining a fully decentralized way of issuing, holding and verifying credentials with a world-class VPN router, all in one single hardware unit, the partners will create a powerful tool for consumer privacy and protection. This integration will also help prevent loss of personal data control and identity theft.
Nathan Vary, CEO of SpiderDAO, commented:
SpiderDAO is delighted to work with BOTLabs GmbH as they build out their extensive roadmap. We look forward to being able to provide our clients with industry-leading security and offer further protection of their online privacy by utilizing KILT Protocol within our SpiderVPN routers. As more and more users demand decentralized and secure personal data ownership, we anticipate an exciting long-term collaboration.
Ingo Rübe, Founder of KILT Protocol and CEO of BOTLabs GmbH, added:
We were interested in collaborating with SpiderDAO due to their unique approach to governance through machine identity. SpiderDAO has the potential to democratise internet access and we are happy to be part of this journey. KILT Protocol became a fully decentralized blockchain in November, and we look forward to testing new tools that advance governance initiatives in the Polkadot ecosystem.
Multilayer governance setup based on Polkadot
SpiderDAO’s multilayer governance setup is based on software and hardware tools built on Polkadot (DOT/USD), resulting in the approach “one router, one vote”. Users can achieve ID verification using a combination of the router serial number and MAC address and the DID using the KILT Protocol. The DID will make it hard to copy or imitate a user’s identity because it will be implemented as an extra middleware layer.
