Hi Chris. Thanks for posting the info for the CFP.

Would love to see some fintech company from my country applied for this since I'm still waiting to get access for Web Monetization payment here in Indonesia. Inaccessibility to Interledger network outside US and other countries indeed a problem for many of us living here.

Personally, I'm also working on a side project of digital wallet (dashboard-like template) to be integrated with Rafiki/Interledger devnet later on but that's within the scope of opensource boilerplate/template for others (who capable getting the right license from their governments) able to easily bootstrap or experiment their own digital wallet project. What's missing for me though to eligible for this CFP is that I'm not part of formal entity with the license on this and not ready to register as such.

Is this the only CFP open this year or do you have plan for another CFP that's available for general public and individuals later on, Chris? I would love to participate on this topic but I can only submit for smaller scale CFP.

Thanks!

Thanks @radhyr We are considering 1 more CFP, although it will be different from anything we have done before including this one. We would love to see submissions from your country/region. Let us know if we can be of any help!

Lots candidates I think would be great to serve as Interledger nodes in Indonesia. I'm personally an avid user of Indonesian new neobank Jago, personally a fan of their seamless integration of Virtual Credit Card to their pocket balance - something that I see also could work great with Interledger payment pointer! Neobanks in Indonesia still in its infancy and the one I mentioned just now hadn't even connected internationally via SWIFT network. Would be great to see if Interledger Foundation could officially invite them to join Interledger with this CFP. 🙏

Any chance previous year grantee could submit to this CFP Chris?
