<manu_sporny> Woo hoo! Huge strides in just 12 months!

Evan_Lally_(Digital_Bazaar): Oh sure I thought the key was for questions but I can provide some comments about our plugfest experience if you'd like. ✪
Evan_Lally_(Digital_Bazaar): Sure why don't you do that. ✪
Evan_Lally_(Digital_Bazaar): Oh that's a great question that's going to be my comment to so good timely question you know the plugfest was a good first step I think you mentioned that it was kind of a Hello World displaying the credential you know is a nice first step toward interoperability but I think the main takeaway for us was how it was fairly straightforward to do because of the solid alignment with the standards that you mentioned on this slide so the fact that a open badge version 3 has a line with. ✪
Evan_Lally_(Digital_Bazaar): Standards means that it's you know fairly straightforward to integrate this with the wallet that supports other types of credentials unrelated to skills or education and and that's very exciting to us the vision of a digital wallet that can handle lots of different types of credentials curated by the holder that can speak to really any aspect of their daily life I think is the reason that this group is so excited about working on this so I'm guessing the other companies feel this way too and we're glad that these standards are aligning to. ✪
Evan_Lally_(Digital_Bazaar): to make a possible. ✪
<kerri_lemoie> (next slide just demonstrates this discussion)
Evan_Lally_(Digital_Bazaar): Yeah we had assumed that those protocols were baked into the did methods discussion just as part of the Practical you know how we get from here to there so I think the communication of the verifiable credential from the issuer to the wallet is going to be an important discussion for plugfest to as is the did methods that we use and we heard I think in one of the previous meetings that there might be some overlapping Solutions so certainly different folks are going to present different did methods for. ✪
Evan_Lally_(Digital_Bazaar): And it's in the same with issue and we are working on a tool which we should be able to release to the group next week that uses one of the issuance and communication protocols the credential Handler API that would allow folks to basically have a Sandbox and open sandbox that they can use to push credentials into their wallet with the credential Handler API so I can I can drop a link in the chat to the w3c standards track stuff related to chappie if anyone's interested. ✪
Evan_Lally_(Digital_Bazaar): did and then when that too. ✪
Evan_Lally_(Digital_Bazaar): Is available will let the group know. ✪
Nate_Otto_(he/him): Oh thanks I plus 1 the idea of talking about protocols and just helping this journey of credential from its issuer to the wallet that's a really important phase and then of course you protocols that support the Journey of from the wallet to the verifier one word can be a further exploration phase I'd also like to promote maybe the idea that we talked about the place to trust Registries have within this market and. ✪
Nate_Otto_(he/him): The best option that would help the market sort of get essential capabilities around understanding which issuers should be trusted to issue which credentials by which verifiers I'm at some point in our long interoperability Journey. ✪
<dmitri_zagidulin> in terms of protocols, what I personally suspect is going to happen is -- we have three+ broad groupings of protocols. 1) VC-API / CHAPI, 2) OpenID Connect family of protocols, and 3) WACI-DIDComm
<kayode_ezike> Lately, I’ve been getting the sense that there needs to be a standard mechanism (e.g., config/disco doc) for issuers to specify supported protocols. Wallets can then use this to determine what to do. I fear this may be adding a standard of standards, but just putting it out there.
<dmitri_zagidulin> less done, and more - easier to do. (verification)
<dmitri_zagidulin> the other thought about verification is -- nearly all the participants in the 1st plugfest already implemented and displayed verification.
<tim_dutta_-_entrustient> Are there any next steps on who will be proceeding to PlugFest 2
<sharon_leu> @Tim, anyone who successfully displayed the obv3 badge in their vc wallet
