Ripple is honored to host the first face-to-face meeting of the W3C Interledger Payments Community Group on February 25th, 2016. The goal of the community is to connect the many payment networks around the world via the Web, using an open and universal payment protocol known as the Interledger Protocol (ILP).

We’re looking forward to this event expanding the dialogue about possible applications for ILP, as well as bringing community members together for a packed day of presentations and demonstrations.  

During the workshop, presenters will expand on material previously presented in the most recent ILP webinar and available in the ILP white paper. Topics of discussion will include:

  • ILP Overview, followed by a Q&A session
  • Universal Payment Channels demonstration
  • Message serialization
  • Expanding on the ILP white paper
  • Routing and pathfinding
  • Use case demonstrations and development, including:
    • SkuChain presentation/demo
    • presentation/demo
    • Internet of Things (IoT) applications
    • Smart hosting
    • Smart contracts
    • One-to-many and many-to-one payments
    • Non-divisible and non-monetary assets
  • Implementing ILP
  • What’s next: the roadmap

Featured presenters will include the ILP co-creators Stefan Thomas, Adrian Hope-Bailie and Evan Schwartz, as well as Jehan Tremback from Althea Mesh and SF Dev Labs, SkuChain founder Zaki Manian, and senior developer Dimitri De Jonghe.

Registration is still open for attendance in person at Ripple’s San Francisco headquarters, as well as remote attendance from anywhere around the world. The W3C Interledger Community Group is still growing, and welcomes new members every day.

We hope you can join us, and we look forward to welcoming the community and fostering this dialogue!
