Description What if we could stream micropayments as fast, easily and cheaply as data? What if we could replace large, closed payment networks like Visa and SWIFT with an open, interconnected system?

Interledger is an open payment protocol inspired by TCP/IP that could be the foundation for an "Internet of Value". It uses a simple packet format like IP to route value across independent payment networks. Early versions of the protocol are being used to connect cryptocurrencies, blockchains, banks, and mobile money systems.
