concepts - draft in nature…

Perhaps a wiki page outlining differences between web-payments and other ‘similar’ solutions; a page, with a table in it perhaps; might help with on-boarding. 

Links that come to mind include;


Another interesting set of papers: http://openidentityexchange.org/white-papers-0

some of this stuff gets outside my area of expertise; so, given it’s useful for me; i’m thinking it’ll have widespread usefulness. 

RE: IDENTITY / PRIVACY - notes from a while back; (EOI / KYC / (etc).)“

These guys must have e-id for online
 1. This Directive shall apply to the following obliged entities:

The methods connecting the physical / silo world [1] is different to the methods used to maintain that online presence; connected to an instrument that has been verified within systems that have been covered by the Identity requirements (i.e. at account creation or as mandated to be required, etc.)

where and how web-payments fits into the marketplace, could perhaps benefit by some description for lay-people in association to other initiatives they may already be aware of, and may consider cross-over or duplication is therein; being undertaken, without further time or consideration…
