As a casual observer of ILP (and not a developer), can someone explain to me the difference between ILP, Uberledger (http://uberledger.io/) and Hyperledger (https://www.hyperledger.org/)?

Thanks,

Karen

I'm also interested to know whether or not Ripple Consensus Ledger (RCL) and XRP will have any role in the transaction journey through ILP. If so, will we be able to notice that traffic in Ripple Charts through an increase in transaction volume or liquidity?

Thanks,

Stefan or Adrian:

are you able to say publicly which banks will be moving transactions over ILP come October 1?

Presumably, this means that a version of Ripple Connect with ILP as a "protocol switch" is already shipped and deployed to those banks, right?

Best,
Roger

Thank you for this clarification Stefan.

Is this information published on the Ripple website and/or Ripple wiki? If not, may I ask why not?

Best,
Daniel

What the article is referring to is that Ripple's bank customers will be moving real money through ILP-powered Ripple products starting Oct 1st.

Note that we were developing ILP internally for some time before we decided that it should become open standard and released the white paper. For now the commercial implementation of ILP inside of Ripple products and the open-source work happening in this group are pretty separate. We're getting really good ideas and feedback from the banks using ILP and that feeds back into the community group work. And of course the end goal is to have it all interconnect some day.

It'll take quite some time (and a lot of community traction) before the banks would even consider connecting to a public Interledger. Hence the importance of the work this group is doing that's unrelated to Ripple. For it to be a true standard there has to be lots of activity around it that isn't directly tied to us or our customers.

Hi guys,

I just saw this news - http://www.afr.com/technology/nab-westpac-part-of-ripples-new-global-payments-network-20160915-grgz81

Ripple has created Ripple Connect, new technology to allow banks to talk to each other, and is developing its "interledger protocol", which will go live on October 1 and provide the foundation for banks to directly connect their ledgers with each other without an intermediary.

Is that ready to go live on Oct 1? Which ledgers are going to try out at live on Oct 1? Gatehub? any hints?

Thanks,
Winthan
