EU planning second try at uniform digital wallet for ID, paymentsentropys said:I guess the real issue here is if ordinary citizens of these 27 countries want their identity information controlled by Brussels instead of more directly accountable politicians and bureaucrats.I would not. And I doubt the citizens in those countries will get any say at all on the matter.Well, I am one of these European citizens and I am originally from a small European country which never managed to implement good functional technology. Quite the opposite. And to this date this country mostly uses its own crappy solutions, which means that everyday tasks like logging into my national bank account or government service portal, are very unstable, takes forever if they don't log out with a timeout, requires me to always carry around my physical passcode token and doesn't work at all about 25% of the times, so I need to try to log in several times to get in and use the services :-/ Isn't this just ridicules in 2021?So yes, I am very much in favour of these advanced, secure and user friendly Pan-European standards which makes life better and easier for all of us. Thank you, EU!
