You can create a social identity for yourself by creating a profile on a social networking site like Facebook. You can use that identity to seamlessly signup on Medium. You don’t have to re-enter first name, last name, etc. Medium integrates Facebook APIs and transfers your information with your consent.
But, what about creating your identity on the blockchain?

You need an identity that communicates your personality or individuality.
Now compare this identity with the public key. BlockchainCoder is a personalised identity that speaks for me. Creating such identities effortlessly is one of the features Safebit provides you.
