Hi all,

The Linked Data Signatures, RDF Dataset Normalization, Proof of
Publication, and Bitcoin/Ethereum (Koblitz) signature suites have always
awkwardly straddled the Web Payments CG and the Credentials CG.

There were around 30-40 of us out in San Francisco this week for
Rebooting Web of Trust III and a few of us wanted to give these specs a
more appropriate home. So, we're launching the Digital Verification
Community Group

https://www.w3.org/community/blog/2016/10/23/proposed-group-digital-verification-community-group/

The mission of the Digital Verification Community Group is to study,
design, promote, and deploy systems that increase trust on the Web.
These systems include, but are not limited to, signature systems, data
normalization algorithms, and computational proof systems.

If you'd like to support the creation of the CG, go here:

and click on the link to support the creation of the group.
