TOL: Support for did:ipid

Thinking Out Loud

Similar to the thoughts voiced in TOL: Support for did:sidetree, we should also consider adding support for did:ipid.

The rationale is somewhat similar: We are already using IPFS for a couple of reasons, including for our SEAL product. In fact, one might even consider SEAL a potentially related method, as it stores all its additional information in IPFS, as well.

So did:ipid fits very well into the overall picture, is quite useful for a lot of the simpler use cases, and can be self-hosted very easily (see conversation about “Vereign SSI Node”).

It seems like a good addition to the mix, and something that might also be rather useful in the context of Gaia-X, as it works without a ledger.
