About the Interledger Foundation

Interledger is working towards a more equitable and creative global society through an open payments network in which anyone can seamlessly earn, share, buy, sell, and trade with anyone else in the world. To drive this vision forward we will:

  • Connect a powerful community of web advocates and leaders.
  • Promote creative and innovative solutions to connecting humanity.
  • Steward technology and standards work that advances open payment technology.

This is a critical moment in the evolution of the web. Never has it been more clear that the web can be both a tool and a weapon for distributing power and privilege. The dominant business models of the web are already being controlled by the same people, institutions, companies, and algorithms that reinforce systemic racism and inequality.

The Interledger team is mission-oriented, strategic, creative, and collaborative. We care deeply about using the platform of the web to expand financial inclusion.
