Hello guys,
I've lost count of all the variations of the secp256k1 key types I've seen.
The latest in the DID spec is:

"Secp256k1VerificationKey2018"

Can we stick with that for now. I know we need to register it here
https://w3c-ccg.github.io/ld-cryptosuite-registry/ but not quite sure of
the process for that.

For authentication I would like to use the following type copying from the
conventions for RSA:

"Secp256k1SignatureAuthentication2018"

Regards

Pelle
