What is the Verifiable Credentials Policy Committee?
The Verifiable Credentials Policy Committee is a subcommittee of the Blockchain Advocacy Coalition. It is made up of a group of businesses and identity experts who will help develop policy proposals, support legislation and provide expert testimony and guidance to the state government. The committee goals are:
Establish that open standard verifiable credentials meeting baseline requirements for security and privacy have the same legal weight as physical credentials
Aim to find public-private partnership or pilot opportunities for verifiable credential technology
Work to engage/win over potential adversaries to VCs including privacy advocates and consumer groups
Specifically enable support for COVID-19-related credentials for public health and re-opening the economy—but would not be limited to this
