Hey Credentials CG,

An aspect of the work we're doing here revolves around the registration
and management of Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs). The group expects
that there will be multiple networks (DHTs, DLTs, etc.) that support DID
management.

Digital Bazaar is thrilled to announce the launch of the Veres One
Testnet today. Veres One is a decentralized ledger for the registration
and management of DIDs and conforms to the recently revised DID spec
proposal.

We are also announcing the launch of a universal DID client, whose goal
is to be able to register, retrieve, and update DIDs on any DID-spec
compliant ledger. Here is a short video that we have put together
to explain and demonstrate the current capabilities:

Our future plans for the did-client are to support the Bitcoin,
Ethereum, Sovrin, and other ledgers that implement DID Method specs. We
look forward to discussing this more with the folks at Rebooting the Web
of Trust in Boston next week.
