In introduction, I am with skuchain.com and we have been active in the
application of blockchain technologies to the trade finance & supply chain

I agree with Nitin in that there is a need for an interledger protocol that
is beyond payments. We see applications in the collaborative commerce space
around transfer of title, portability of oracle certifications and
provenance trails across ledgers that will need interledger communication.

There are other requirements specific to collaborative commerce too, which
is why we are attempting to bring some structure and thinking around these
areas at blockice.org.

Would like to have our activities dovetail with this, so we would like to
be in on the upcoming community call.
