Part of the problem with our cryptographic wallet ecosystem is lack of
support for modern cryptography. Not just zkp and blockchain technologies,
but even some modest improvements to legacy.

Blockchain Commons has begun hosting a series of virtual workshops that are
bringing multiple silicon chip designers together with hardware wallet
manufacturers & security engineers to address these issues.

The results from our last two workshops are at http://www.SiliconSalon.com.

I think you’ll find the videos of the presentation quite enlightening. (The
rest of our workshop is Chatham House but key quotes are shared.)

If you’d like to be involved in the future of these workshops and/or open &
interoperable wallet standard, I encourage you to become a sponsor of
Blockchain Commons and get involved.

I personally feel that given the history of big corporation capture of
Linux Foundation in projects like HyperLedger, that instead an investment
in our efforts will give more “bang for the buck” (or per hour invested)
than being involved in the Open Wallet Foundation.

For our reports on what we accomplished Q2, Q1, and last year (next will be
out after RWOT) I , see:
