We’ve recently announced our intent to launch a CFP for ILP-enabled financial services projects. Today, we’ll feature AgnostiPay, a 2022 recipient of the grant.
AgnostiPay acts as a financial service integrator and enabler of ILP technology. We support the adoption of ILP by being on the client-facing or people's side of the tech stack. AgnostiPay seeks to help ILP node and wallet builders enable their end-user to directly connect their financial service providers (e.g. the end user's current banks, exchanges, and wallets) to ILP nodes. For the end-user, this means they can manage all their financial services conveniently and unlock currency-agnostic (peer-to-peer) payments.
You may preview AgnostiPay’s project here.
You might have heard about Mastodon or the fediverse recently. Federated social media went from an outlier technology to being used by more than 12 million people on thousands of servers in just a few months. A digital creator can now truly own their social media presence, distribution, and relationship with their audience. However, they still need tools for monetization.
Join us on June 26 to hear ILF Web Monetization Ambassador Jeremiah Lee share how Interledger can help creators using Mastodon and other fediverse apps.
