Think about how useful would be to be able to vote for a motion simply by clicking a link on reddit, or vote for a specific park rate interest directly from our website where the yield curves are showed. Or vote for a custodial grant clicking a link from this forum.
Clicking on a link it is much easier that entering data manually. It will save a lot of mistakes made with “amounts” . It also comes at a price for security, but that can be mitigated with confirmation dialogs.
Beside the classical entry points for making payments ( bitcoin:<address>[?amount=<amount>][?label=<label>][?message=<message>] ) , it would be very beneficial for ShareHolders to submit votes through a link :
Like the idea, but as useful as buying an engine without a car. So I suggest instead of making the URI the objective, I would say release e.g. a dashboard system for shareholders or webbased wallet based on an URI scheme. I think we need to define some concrete applications which have priority and would benefit from URI system.
Yes, I am upping this thread. Its very old and inactive, but now we have more resources and community that can start drafting a proposal for an URI scheme.
the first part of an URI is called URI Resource Identifier Scheme name and they are application specific. Its up to the application parsing them to decide what to do. There is an official RFC that instruct the official registry (IANA) on how to handle registrations.
Check the link @desrever posted above. It’s literally just an HTML form. I don’t see any fees mentioned on the page. Maybe that changes once they reply, but just to contact them with a request is free apparently.
Do we have access to what Bitcoin provided? From what I’ve read they value compatibility across URIs and how they work. Building on the Bitcoin protocol would be a good starting point I suppose. Maybe we can even have the same protocol but just a different alias? Technically this is a bit over my head at protocol level, but once we have a draft of the scheme I’m ok to help with some paperwork. I suppose they also need an entity submitting the proposal, any thoughts?
So I submitted an inquiry into securing standardized nu URI scheme some time ago, and finally received a reply.
Before I send this to the IESG-designated expert for review, we need you to send us the template described in Section 5 of RFC 4395. Would you be able to send that to us within 30 days? If not, I’ll go ahead and close this ticket, and you can re-submit whenever you’re ready.

I believe this is the relevant section she’s referring to. Is anyone familiar with this process, or have any suggestions?
