We Believe

Exchange Icon

Monetary interaction should be as easy as information exchange.

Transfer Icon

Humans should be able to transfer their money with each other without any barriers or friction.

Access Icon

The unbanked and underbanked should have equitable access.

Creators Icon

Content creators and digital innovators should be fairly compensated.

All of the work we do is to connect and benefit each and every human, regardless of identity, geography, or income.

In short, we believe connecting all currencies is connecting all of humanity.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We are committed to building fair and equitable pathways to financial access. And all of the work we do is to connect and benefit each and every human, regardless of identity, geography, or income.

Financial exclusion and scarcity have often been a tool for oppression, discrimination, and systemic inequity. The Interledger Foundation is committed to building financial systems to include voices that have been traditionally excluded. Our extraordinarily ambitious goal is to decentralize power, privilege, and financial control.
