Dear Christopher,
This is very interesting. Is it possible that the soliconsalon url is incorrect? When visiting I only see an option to buy the domain.

Kind regards,

Subject: Re: Open Wallet Foundation
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 more on our mission & vision see:
