The Interledger Protocol
The Interledger Protocol. (aka ILP)
Interledger is a new open source protocol and payment standard that bridges digital networks and enables seamless p2p payments.
Importantly, Interledger enables users to retain custody and access on-demand liquidity when sending cross-currency payments.
Today, Interledger is not tied to any one company, blockchain, or currency.
Interledger was originally developed within Ripple by Stefan Thomas and Evan Schwartz. Since it has been made open-source and grown to be the 3rd largest active w3c community in the world.
Since it’s inception, Interledger has been used by many organizations including Ripple’s xCurrent product as well as by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in Mojaloop,a project to conduct p2p payments in emerging markets. Kava is applying ILP now to open networks like BTC and ETH.
