The workshop focused on aspects not related to payments, a topic belonging to W3C’s existing Web Payments activity, but instead on basic infrastructure for enabling and benefiting from blockchains in a Web-facing context.
If you’re interested in participating in blockchain incubation and discussion at W3C, you can join the W3C Blockchain Community Group. If you’d like to continue the conversation about this or future W3C blockchain workshops, you can subscribe to the public-blockchain-workshop mailing list.”
