Re: [Hyperledger Identity WG] Proposal for a new SIG (Financial Markets SIG)

Brian Behlendorf

Hi Vipin,

Thanks for writing up the proposal.  It's well worth while developing new SIGs within Hyperledger where there exists the demand and volunteer time available, and I appreciate your willingness to help lead such a SIG.  We recently decided (within the TSC and then approved by the Governing Board) that SIGs no longer needed to be run or approved by the TSC, and instead are launched and managed by HL staff in consultation with the community.  We'd still love to see public input and brainstorming around SIG proposals, so the Google doc seems like a decent place for that, and announcing them here also a great idea. 

Personally, I like the idea of this SIG and hope we find more folks interested in joining.  It certainly contains topics I know I've heard others express interest in having a SIG for, particularly post-trade.  And it feels sufficiently well scoped, and distinct from the other existing SIGs.

Hello All,
Please find  the proposal for a new SIG called Financial Markets SIG. This SIG has been brewing for a few years; first there was no place to hold discussion on verticals and we did some of this thinking in the Requirements working group specifically in the Post-Trade Settlement use case. However with the maturity and the appearance of numerous Financial Markets use cases implemented using dlts under Hyperledger, we believe its time has come.  
The discussions with STAC in Performance and Scale Working Group were the final catalyst. 
Please have a look at the SIG proposal and comment on it, any and all suggestions are welcome. Looking forward to a fruitful discussion.
