Hello, I’m wondering what the status is on DeepKey. What happened with the previous attempts? What sort of issues are preventing this from coming to completion?
I see this as the core foundation of a free, decentralized digital world: the self-declared identity. All further actions of an individual derive their potency and integrity from this declaration.
I’m interested in forming a working group and gathering the necessary resources to plan and implement an end to end solution, an app which will enable non-technical, non-cryptography savvy users to declare their own identity and participate in this world. In addition we may want to include some simple form of profile, profile discovery, and chat.
I believe that in order to deliver on this promise, the Identity solution must be open source, open protocol. Auditable with competing implementations. I believe that Holochain is uniquely suitable to being the bedrock for this innovation due to the values of the founders and community, their guiding principles, and their implementation decisions.
I welcome comments and feedback from “thedavidmeister” and “philipbeadle” (can someone mention them for me?) who have worked on the Deepkey and identity-manager projects respectively. Thank your work in laying the foundations in this area! Can you tell us where you left off, and what might be an appropriate point to build off? What challenges can we expect on the road ahead, and what resources do we need to rally?
Thank you to anyone reading! Your ideas and suggestions are welcome.
