I was looking at the wiki entry for this and noticed that your description of DNSSEC is incorrect. It is an internet standard and is widely deployed in the root (.), many TLDs, ccTLDs and second leverl domains. Also understand when the IETF or ICANN adopts new (we worked on DNSSEC no less than 10

Why don't just... bitcoin://url.without.explicitly.specifying.provider bitcoin://alias@provider bitcoin://IIBAN@authorizedBitcoinInstitution ?? By the way, I don't like the fact that a single authorized institution needs to map the IIBANs to bitcoin addresses. The IANA is a good

I prefer to leverage the signing of the (.) root in the DNS tree. The amount of effort in signing the root holds more weight than building a CA off the bitcoin blockchain. If you want to associate identifiers for payment addresses I suggest putting those in DNSSEC signed records in the DNS. For
