Hi Hal - sorry for the delay getting back to you. Much of the Sovrin chat happens in the Sovrin Slack and Indy Rocketchat at the moment.
If you look at the original white paper “The Inevitable Rise of Self-Sovereign Identity” you will see a section called The Economic Model of Sovrin which describes a new marketplace for “Premium Claims”. This paper and the subsequent research has informed the thinking for how such an economic model can be technically delivered.
The more recent Protocol and Token white paper goes into more detail about the potential, and how a token-based mechanism can enable a series of new features, while maintaining or enhancing privacy.
The Sovrin Foundation will publish a further paper with more details specifically on the functionality of the token - no specific date for that yet.
I’m glad you’ve held back to just 4 out of your thousand questions!
- Full details will come in the to-be-issued Sovrin Foundation token paper.
- See 1.
- The basic capabilities as they are currently envisaged are laid out in the current protocol and token paper. More detail will come in 1)
- Yes, much extraordinary brainpower is being applied.
I know this doesn’t give you all the detail you want, you’ll have to hold on for the main token paper for that.
