A distributed identifier (DID) is a property of the datatype URL.
In the context of the ConfIDent and ConDIDi projects this property is being used to store the DID of an event or an event series. ConDIDi provides a DID for an event or event series, with which the participation of a person or organization in that event or event series can be verified (signed on the blockchain).
This property is not needed for the DOI registration process via DataCite and it's use is optional.
For a general definition of a DID see: https://www.w3.org/TR/did-core/.
