I know SecureKey pretty well. They have traditionally been all about
federation and brokerage. I see where they have gotten investment
to get into the blockchain and permissioning game. That will be
interesting. :-) Maybe reach out to Andre and point him to our work and ask
him for his general thoughts... ;-)

Colin has suggested Taqanu Bank <http://www.taqanu.com/#overview>, which is
already engaged in a Kantara-related discussion and has provided initial
info. I'm inclined to go with that, if it works for people.

Regarding Everledger, we discussed how we're looking for use cases that
have individual empowerment more at the core, but if you like, maybe you
can ask for commentary about aspects of the use case that have this
element. ?
