Persistent Identifier (dPID)

These pages relate to our Beta version and the features are under redevelopment.

Another product from DeSci Labs is our dPID layer - . DeSci Nodes is built around the dPIDs which are persistent identifiers that stick to the root of the Nodes in a sustainable manner.

You can get the link to the dPID of the Node, to share but also for your own reference, as follows.

Share via Persistent Identifier

When you publish your Node, it will automatically receive a decentralized persistent identifier (dPID). You can share your work with others by forwarding this permanent link to your work. Others can cite your work using this PID.

dPID feel and function like simple filepaths. This makes it super simple to share and granularly cite individual components.

You can access your Node's dPID from #node-drive. Click on Cite for whichever component you want to share and simply copy the dPID. The root dPID always looks like this:{some number}. This root dPID always points to the latest version of the full Node. But with dPID, you can get specific: Want to share a CSV from Dataset 5 from Version 2 of your Node? Sure. Just select the component in #node-drive and copy its dPID -- or type out the dPID yourself. It's always / {Your Node's root PID} / {version number} /{component type}/ {component name}.
