Hi Guys,

For me working in the other end of the identity conundrum [1] it would still be interesting knowing if there is (or could be) a "union" between these opposing universes.

Although I'm personally heavy into innovation [2], I find that schemes that requires "total rewrite of everything" tend to go nowhere.

Basic question: How could an existing government system using centrally issues tax numbers gradually adopt DIDs?
