About the Interledger Foundation

The Interledger Foundation is working towards a more equitable and creative global society through an open payments network that connects and benefits each human, regardless of identity, geography, or income. To drive this vision forward we:

  • Connect a powerful community of web advocates and leaders
  • Promote creative and innovative solutions to connecting humanity
  • Steward technology and standards work that advances open payment technology

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.
