What is Interledger?

Interledger is a protocol with which a network of so called “Connectors” can coordinate to route payments across any system and geography. These connectors are centrally operated, giving them the flexibility to support any current or future system, but trust-minimized due to a concept called “packetisation”, which means a Connector can only ever hold a tiny fraction of users money at a time. Furthermore, Interledger is not owned or controlled by anyone. There are no explicit financial incentives, no token or enforced fees, but rather each Connector can decide for themselves how to monetize their services and even more importantly, they can innovate on their business model. This is why we like Interledger so much. It doesn’t make assumptions on how the world should be, but rather offers the tools for creating the world we want for ourselves.
