The deadline[1] for adding options to the VC HTTP API renaming poll has passed
and a draft of the VC HTTP API Renaming Poll is now open for review:

https://www.opavote.com/en/vote/6226340995923968?p=1

This is a ranked choice poll for renaming the Verifiable Credentials HTTP API
(VC HTTP API). Pay attention as there are two separate contests in this poll -
one contest to rank your most favoured names, and one contest to eliminate
names you really don't want to see picked.

The purpose of the renaming exercise is to retitle the VC HTTP API
specification to something that is easier to communicate to the people in
industries in which the API will be used as well as the general population of
decision makers that might be exposed to the purpose of the API.

To get an understanding of what the API is currently expected to do, please
see the following:

Both contests use the Borda Count system to rank the outcomes:

Voting at the following URL will commence on August 12th 2021:

I will send out another announcement when the polls open. For now, please
review the poll for correctness and if you find a problem, please let us know
about it. There is still time to fix/update the poll before it goes live on
August 12th.
