I noticed this announcement nearly a year ago, which seemed to be some kind of top-down effort to unify state channel implementations under a single standard.
“initiative to unify Ethereum’s State Channels projects around a single standard”, and signed by a set of logos
I’d like to know what happened with this one, and what can be learned.
Beyond this possibly stalled standard effort, “State Channels” has some interesting initiatives, especially the state channels forum and recently software like Web3Torrent. https://blog.statechannels.org/introducing-web3torrent/
