Hi all,

As some of you have seen, we're in the process of writing a set of
articles for the Mozilla Hacks blog on Web Payments and PaySwarm. The
first part in the series was on Identity, specifically the Web Keys spec:


There is a video demonstrating how to use the PaySwarm Web Keys
registration example here (unfortunately, you may need to crank your
audio all the way up to hear it):

There is also a video demonstrating what a Web Keys registration looks
like via WordPress here (again, crank your audio all the way up):

The demo is based on the payswarm.js tool that's available as open
source here:


Specifically, the Web Keys example is here:

We're currently trying to get together with the Mozilla Persona team to
figure out a way to get Web Keys and Persona integrated enough to where

If anyone on the mailing list has any questions about the demo, the
code, or future plans, I'd be happy to answer them on this mailing list. :)
