Ecosystem Models

There are multiple ways a Co-operative Credentials Ecosystem could work. These are the models that have been proposed.

Industry Body Convenor (current)

The industry body convenor model involves the establishment of a co-operative industry body as issuer and verifier of the Co-operative Credential, supported by a technology provider such as coopcreds.com. The maintenance costs of the co-operative credential would be distributed between the co-operatives participating in the system, contributed in the form of money and labour via the technology provider.
