The W3C Advisory Board discussed whether or not Verifiable Claims are
ready for a Working Group during a recent meeting. Note that three of of
the ten Advisory Board members are the same people/orgs that remain
skeptical of the Verifiable Claims work: Chris Wilson (Google), Mike
Champion (Microsoft), and Tantek Çelik (Mozilla).

Some of you will not be able to see the minutes from the meeting as they
are W3C Member Only. The AB Minutes of the discussion around Verifiable
Claims are here:


Mike Champion is also questioning whether or not there is enough buy in
and implementation experience in the payments and retail space here:


Bob, Jay, you guys may want to weigh in on that email noting the sort of
implementation experience that each of your organizations have in the
digital coupon space and your desire to support the verifiable claims
work in your implementations. DavidE, I don't know if you want to
mention anything on behalf of Verifone? Jay, does your committee at GS1
want to weigh in on this?

Web Payments IG, payments are being placed on the chopping block wrt.
Verifiable Claims. Do any other IG members want to assert support for
this work? Wasn't the Web Payments IG already clear about their desires?

Richard, Matt, can we put a short agenda item on tomorrow's Verifiable
Claims call about this?
