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.

The Bitcoin software, network, and concept is called "Bitcoin" with a capitalized "B". Bitcoin currency units are called "bitcoins" with a lowercase "b" -- this is often abbreviated BTC.

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
