Hi – I am looking for a good paper that show use cases for DiD that will allow me to explain to someone why an enterprise would want to use it.
I am particularly interested in how a DiD identity can be verified by someone across the country that wants to do business with him.
Just to be clear, in the past privacy has not been a big seller (nor has security, but there have been enough big problems there that enterprises are beginning to take it seriously). So I would like some use cases that don’t involve that.

Christopher and all,

I have some experience building nice presentations, I can also help putting something together. I suggest we have 2 to 4 different versions of the slides depending on the target audience (technical vs business) and the context (self-explanatory vs visual support).

Happy to join and coordinate a small taskforce for this purpose.

Great idea, I do lots of DID-related talks and often re-use and re-mix
the same material, e.g. see here:

I'm sure it's mostly familiar content, but maybe there are a few extra
ideas, anyway +1 to working together on better slides we can all use.

I’m finding that our decks describing the DID/VC architecture for

we aspire to are diverging, and in many ways are selling to those
already sold on the concepts rather than truly explaining the value

I’m seeking more examples of slide decks to draw ideas from, and I
will prepare a better starting set of slides that we can all use. I
have Manu, Joe’s & Kim’s slides from TPAC, and some recent slides from

If you’ve got something different from these, even if not perfect, I
welcome learning from them.
