Please note that supporting a group is different from joining
a group. Supporters must also enroll if they wish to participate.

 The mission of this group is to establish a standard for creating a
universally verifiable proof of any data, file, or series of events, by
anchoring data to the blockchain and other sources. This allows anyone
to prove the data existed at a point in time and has not been modified.

 The group will publish and formalize the  Chainpoint specification  as
a stable reference, maintain a test suite, and take feedback and use
cases for the future evolution for the specification. 

 The Chainpoint Community Group will coordinate with the  Blockchain
Community Group  for general standardization of blockchain-related
technology, and will operate according to the  Chainpoint CG charter .
You can read more about Chainpoint, its history, and goals, on our 
recent blog post announcing Chainpoint 2.0 . 

 This group invites participants who are actively developing and
deploying proof-of-existence, timestamping, and data integrity
solutions, who are skilled in blockchain technologies, and who can work
on use cases for Chainpoint and related technologies. 

Thank you,

W3C Community Development Team
