[Quotes Kaliya] Will The Future Of Social Media Mean The Coexistence Of Safety And Identity? Forbes
There is a difference between the platform knowing who someone is and the whole world knowing the same. Who is enforcing what type of ID? Like Doctor, Young signals the marginalized, and those who have been suffering the abuse on the platform for over a decade. The rules for verification need to incorporate the varying definitions of identity that include cultural, general and local perspectives.”
Better Onboarding with Verifiable Credentials Phil Windley
Guru.com (and lots of other web sites) have to be shedding potential customers at every step in their onboarding process. I wonder if they keep track of abandoned registrations and where it happens? Does anyone? I'd love to know the numbers.
Our mission and our purpose is the community we serve: individuals and their households and communities. It starts with and exists inside the economy’s dark matter, empowering people with their own data via personal data stores that help them access, hold and use their own data for their own purposes independently of organisations that may have collected data about them, so that they can manage their lives better.
A digital credential platform is a system that enables users to issue and manage digital credentials such as certificates after the completion of a program or course.
A verifiable digital credential is a document that is issued by an official organization and uses special security features that make it difficult for someone to falsify the information contained within them.
Dock Certs is a user-friendly, no code platform that enables users to easily issue, verify, manage, and revoke verifiable digital credentials.

INATBA Welcomes the General Approach Reached by the European Council on the Upcoming European Identity Framework and Wallet
Key elements that need attention are:
Verifier safeguards in Article 6b to protect EUDIW users from fraudulent requests by relying parties;
The requirement for a persistent, unique identifier;
The private sector’s reliance on European Digital Identity Wallets (EUDIW) in Article 6db;
Competition in the wallet market increasing user experience and adoption;
Lifecycle management of the EUDIW that enables control over the EUDIW;
The relationship between eIDAS and public permissionless distributed ledger technologies and blockchain networks.
[research] DIDs, Claims, Credentials e Blockchains (Self-sovereign Identity) Peixoto, Ricardo Jorge Marques, Universidade do Minho
this document shows the architecture implemented, with a blockchain, responsible for the storage of all public data, and a user agent, responsible for facilitating all interactions of the various users with the developed system. The proof of concept developed allows not only to validate that it is possible to correct many of the problems associated with centralized identity management, but also to explore new cryptographic strategies in order to improve the way each of us manages our own identity.

Signing (issuing) a Verifiable Credential (VC).
Creating a Verifiable Presentation (VP), signed or unsigned
Verifying a VP
Verifying a standalone VC

MOBI Specs and Papers - Automotive ID Ecosystem
Mobi with an array of specs and papers surrounding this ecosystem of vehicle related identification.
a battery passport is nothing but a presentation of data points about a particular battery – who manufactured it, its physical and chemical composition, its current state of health, whether it was refurbished or repurposed from another battery, and so on.
[spec] VEHICLE IDENTITY I TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS MOBI 06/2019
The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), a current vehicle identity system, is insufficient for the digitization of many mobility use-cases such as maintenance history, usage-based insurance, microtransactions, and, ultimately, the existence of a vehicle’s digital twin.
[spec] RECHARGEABLE BATTERY IDENTIFICATION NUMBER MOBI
This can be accomplished by imbuing each asset with a unique, machine-readable identity which would connect the physical asset to its tamper-resistant Web3 identity on the blockchain, as peer-to-peer traceability requires that all participants reference a standardized framework for identifying assets as they travel upstream and downstream the value chain
[whitepaper] ELECTRIC VEHICLE BATTERY STATE OF HEALTH MOBI
MOBI is creating simple blockchain-based standards to identify vehicles, people, businesses, and the Trusted Trip in order to securely exchange and share data, and pay for mobility services, with the goal of making transportation more efficient, equitable, decentralized, and sustainable, all while preserving the data privacy of users and providers alike. MOBI itself is technology and ledger agnostic.
[spec] ELECTRIC VEHICLE GRID INTEGRATION 08/2020
The charging sessions and grid interactions generate a wide variety of data, which will reach enormous volumes. A disjointed response from utilities, charging infrastructure providers, automakers, and the manufacturers supporting them would produce a series of incompatible systems for managing that data. This lack of interoperability becomes problematic at scale.
[whitepaper] Connected Mobility Data Marketplace MOBI
The Connected Mobility Data Marketplaces (CMDM) Working Group will be releasing its first technical specification in Q1 2021, focusing on Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2X), and Infrastructure to Infrastructure (X2X) use cases.
[spec] CONNECTED MOBILITY DATA MARKETPLACE Mobi 03/2021
The Connected Mobility Data Marketplace (CMDM) standards at its core provides blockchain/DLT as a trust layer for V2X data exchange. This standard prescribes reference architecture, data schema, certificates, etc. for vehicles and infrastructure to be able to exchange data by leveraging blockchain/DLT.
[whitepaper] FINANCE, SECURITIZATION, & SMART CONTRACTS MOBI
a variety of use cases that were considered by the FSSC WG. The Working Group considered both B2B (business-to-business) and B2C (business-toconsumer) use cases
[spec] FINANCE, SECURITIZATION, & SMART CONTRACTS MOBI 06/2021
The Finance, Securitization, and Smart Contracts (FSSC) standards provide blockchain/DLT as a trust layer for transactions and data exchanges between entities in a shared digital ecosystem.
[Use Case] SUPPLY CHAIN USE CASES & BUSINESS REQUIREMENTS MOBI 06/2021
1) the parts traceability problem by breaking down the current workflow into nuanced steps, 2) specific steps in the workflow that can be enhanced/modified DLT/blockchain, and 3) high-level business requirements to build such an enhanced parts traceability solution.
SUPPLY CHAIN REFERENCE IMPLEMENTATION MOBI 06/2021
focuses on discussing the benefits and potential interplay of different blockchain setups, embedded into a system that provides a basic communication layer, and the role of privacy enhancing technologies

The Geo Web maintains its DNS-like digital land registry by enforcing the three basic rules of partial common ownership:
Landholders must maintain a public For Sale Price for their parcel(s)
Any market participant can trigger the transfer of a parcel by paying the holder their For Sale Price
Landholders must pay an ongoing Network Fee proportional to their For Sale Price (currently 10% per year)

[Kaliya Quoted] IEEE article about Worldcoin and their shift to Digital ID. IdentityWoman
A crypto currency, Worldcoin, aspires to become the most globally and uniformly distributed cryptocurrency ever by allocating the same modest number of coins to every individual on Planet. The business has spent the last year creating a system that allows other parties to utilize its vast registration of “unique humans” for various identity-focused applications.
