New NFT Standard Approved: ERC-7231

CARV, a self-sovereign identity oracle and AI-powered gaming app, has announced the final approval of ERC-7231: identity-aggregated NFT.

According to the press release, Ethereum has greenlit the standard and backed CARV’s plan for data self-sovereignty through it.CARV stated that this is “a major step in bridging disparate digital identities and enabling users to own their online history, relationships, and experiences across platforms.”

The announcement explained that ERC-7231 binds multiple Web2 and Web3 identities to one NFT. It also achieves encrypted aggregation of multi-domain identity data.

Moreover, ERC-7231 is publicly available.


“The result is an “identity of identities” that enables self-authentication, social overlapping, and commercial value generation from targeted user data.”

CARV Co-Founder Victor Yu commented that “this solution breaks down identity silos and rewrites the rules of data ownership.” Furthermore, the standard offers three benefits:

the protocol’s integration with account abstraction wallets makes Web2 and Web3 onboarding – hence, adoption as well – easier; uniting multiple identities into one enables greater interoperability between different platforms and services; users exercise unprecedented control over their data to decide how it’s used.

Users can opt to share certain on-chain and off-chain identity information and then passively earn whenever brands leverage it.

Moreover, CARV ID is integrated with the standard. Per the announcement, more than 800,000 users are playing games and earning rewards across CARV’s solution, which includes numerous layers, from the foundational data stack to its gaming-focused application layer.

That said, ERC-7231 is “the key to stringing everything together,” it stated.

Yu further commented that, besides play-to-earn, the new standard enables a “new era of data-to-earn” in and beyond blockchain gaming.

“Data self-sovereignty is now a reality across Ethereum and the sky’s the limit,” said Yu.
