DIF APAC/ASEAN - December 2021


Sandeep Bajjuri
 

Hello folks, 

I hope you all are ready for the holiday season. 2021 hasn't been the easiest of the years and we as a group tried to make the best out of it. 

Here are a few key highlights of 2021 for the DIF APAC/ASEAN group
  • We hosted 11 sessions starting from January until November with country spotlights on China, India (x2), Myanmar
  • We heard from companies - Finema on Decentralized Identity in Thailand, AID:Tech on Aid distribution, Zada's work on Covid credentials in Myanmar and many more
  • Affinidi built a Schema Manager to generate custom VCs within minutes
  • Catherine got onto the Steering Committee of DIF, yay to representation from this side of the world and she did represent DIF at the Identity Week Asia 2021
  • and many more updates. You can find our meeting notes from all the months here: https://www.notion.so/dif/1b088f2c46f54050be7f1a4f7edbc226?v=3a13601010de49dd9d4376ca01013748
If you are wondering about December's working group meeting, don't worry, it's holiday time so let's spend the time to recharge, think and rejuvenate. 

Let's come back together in the new year and work for a stronger and impactful 2022. 

Thank you very much for your continued participation and support.

Happy holidays :) 
Catherine, Eric & Sandeep

The APAC-ASEAN group at DIF have been able to highlight some of the
key discussions around SSI with specific focus on the region. Exactly
as is needed.

Thank you - Catherine, Eric and Sandeep for putting in the work you do
to keep the group engaged, prodding the participants to think and
participate in the conversations and highlighting the community.
