What if all our decentralized apps and platforms could share trust/ratings/attestation information, in the form of portable cryptographically signed claims?

What if this self-sovereign, user owned and controlled, privately sharable trust network could become the backbone to unite our many disparate decentralized web apps and platforms?

Finally, what if by uniting our networks in this way we could snowball into an effectively larger, deeper, more powerful network effect than today's legacy social networks and chat apps?

Here are the features that seem to me most needed to make this work well:

- A simple ratings/claims interop format defined by a set of core fields (proposed: `source`, `target`, semantic `content`, normalized scalar `value`)
- Isomorphic translation between formats (e.g. JSON LD Verifiable Claims, IETF Reputons) - Platform independent (e.g. Holo, Ethereum, Blockstack, etc)
- Storage independent (e.g. IPFS, DAT, GUN, etc)
- Cryptographically signed, with a keypair using any common algorithm

Hopes & Dreams
To join together with like-minded decentralists working on projects that would benefit from generic, interoperable trust graphs based on cryptographically signed claims. Let's band together and lift all our boats, by creating allowing users to expand their trust network across multiple decentralized apps and platforms, in a self-sovereign data landscape.

We'll share and map projects we are working on that would benefit from such a framework, mapping out
- what ratings/claims/attestations they would create
- what would be useful for users to share across multiple apps
- what data would benefit our app to receive from a trust network infrastructure

Why Participate?
To find synergies between our projects via a shared trust/ratings/claims/attestations infrastructure.

Session Rundown
Followed by facilitated mapping of the projects present in the room.
