Hi all,

There is a second round of discussions happening on the Verifiable
Claims WG Charter related to payments use cases here:

https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/member-charters-review/2017Mar/0016.html

I strongly advise W3C Members that care about the payments use cases to
weigh in IMMEDIATELY.

We may find consensus around including payments, but limiting the use
cases into low risk use cases such as digital offers, digital receipts,
loyalty cards, and proof of age. If there are other low risk use cases
that your organization cares about around payments, you will want to
mention them or they may not be included in the charter.

To be clear, use cases around Know Your Customer and Verifiable Claims
use for financial transactions would be out of scope until we achieve a
number of low risk use cases in the payments industry. The expectation
would be that we could recharter the group to address the high risk use
cases once we've proven out the low risk use cases.
