Hi Matthew,

How does Uberledger compare to Hyperledger (https://www.hyperledger.org/) and Interledger (https://interledger.org/)?

My friends and I are developing a way to disintermediate value exchange between different digital currencies, i.e. without relying on a trusted third party.

Different versions of peer-to-peer electronic cash exist as data represented by separate blockchains. Payments between such systems cannot be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution. Bitcoin provided part of the solution but its utility is limited to intra-blockchain transactions. The benefits are lost if a trusted third party is required to execute inter-blockchain transactions. We propose a solution to the inter-blockchain transaction problem using the same fundamental principles of Bitcoin. The protocol is described by the Uberledger<http://uberledger.io/> framework, a hierarchical meta-blockchain layer that encapsulates information regarding the fidelity of peer-to-peer transaction facilitators.
