Another SBT purpose is to confirm the digital identity of the Souls (wallet owners) and their reputation. SBTs are needed to simplify and decentralize the process of identification and collaboration.
With just a simple PDF or LinkedIn profile, many of them can easily be faked. Recently, Binance's CEO claimed that only 50 or so profiles out of 7,000
Binance Linkedin profiles are real. Many applicants to health institutions also often lie about their experiences.
SBTs will aim to solve all these issues by creating a digital record that everybody can verify through the blockchain. Digital identity verification is the ultimate proof that decentralization is better in the centralized vs decentralized
Imagine if a Soul receives commendation and credentials from publicly verifiable Souls which are related to reputable institutions. That alone will serve as immutable proof that the owner of that Soul is genuine.
