Hacktoberfest with Interledger


Our vision is a world where sending payments is as easy as sending an email. This means transactions are not limited to particular banks, mobile money providers, or borders.

Because we strive to be open, inclusive, and innovative in everything we do, we have provided a neutral home for the Interledger Protocol and the Open Payments and Web Monetization standards.

The Interledger Protocol has arisen from a need to solve the complexity of global payments. It’s an open, neutral protocol for transferring money based on TCP/IP, the protocol that defines the Internet. It was designed for sending cross-border, cross-currency, instant payments. We provide standards (like Open Payments and Web Monetization) and tools (like Rafiki) that lower the barrier for financial services to adopt ILP and increase access to digital financial services.

Here at Interledger, Hacktoberfest is something genuinely close to our hearts. We’re building on our work from last year, when we hosted our first Hacktoberfest campaign, and the community rallied behind us with incredible contributions.

This year, we’re thrilled to make the “Hacktoberfest with Interledger” month even more engaging with a mentorship program, a richer learning experience, and some amazing rewards!
