CNX and W3C's IoV Task Force
« on: October 29, 2015, 10:55:18 pm »
https://www.w3.org/Payments/IG/wiki/Internet_of_Value_Task_Force
This task force seeks to engage banks, payment networks, other payment service providers, cryptocurrency companies, merchants, central banks, regulators, clearing houses, and all others interested in developing an open standard payment scheme for the Web.

Just curious if in the future you would consider joining it or not and why. On one side they're trying to standardize payment networks, etc, which seems nice, on the other, they're the same big companies that may have caused damage to others and the exact same reason why Bitcoin was invented in the first place.

If they are reaching out to crypto currencies specifically, we should have a talk with them. So you have a contact of some kind?
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

Yeah he's the head of the taskforce. I believe this isn't about BitShares, they're just trying to get standardize stuff around payments. I believe that since they're looking for cryptocurrency companies, CNX could participate. Good to create contacts and a possible other source of revenue for them.
