Hi all. I’m Bob Way. I work with Stefan, Evan and Adrian on the interledger team at Ripple.

I ran across Bitcoin pretty early and became a fanboy of the cryptocurrency concept. A couple years later I discovered OpenCoin’s Ripple announcement and became intrigued with the possibilities of transacting in fiat currencies within the framework of a cryptocurrency system.

It was during my pre-employment research into OpenCoin’s Ripple system that I discovered Ryan Fugger’s “classic" Ripple Pay system. In fact, I credit my grasp of the “rippling” concept to some patient tutoring from members of Ryan’s community. (Great to meet you Ryan!)

Now after two and a half years at Ripple, I’m ecstatic about establishing ILP as a global open standard supporting all types of transactions. I believe ILP can optimize the benefits of social credit, cryptocurrency, and traditional finance by connecting them all into an interoperable web of value.
