BitID, an open authentication protocol using public-key cryptography, your id is your public address. An example login experience for the user could be, scan a QR code with a mobile phone and be directly logged in. Alternatively, you could login with a desktop wallet.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

BitID looks really exciting, as long as a website communicating with a desktop wallet doesn't invite security issues.

What are the benefits of BitID vs OAuth2? I'm currently implementing a new auth system for on my website. Looks like local login with OAuth for FB+Twitter is the current trend.

BitID has a higher security than most passwords. Passwords are stored in a wallet, no need for 'forgot your password'?.
In addition, the users is not required to have a FB+Twitter account, use activation email etc. Login can occur in 3 seconds, as you can simply scan a QR code.

Overall it can mean, more users for your system. The more forms they have to fill in, the earlier they leave the site  Smiley
