Hi Andrew,

Thanks for raising the question of making for-profit ledgers (like, one
day, your Promise app?) ILP compatible.

Good job on the ILP call.


There is nothing precluding each member of this group from profiting or
creating for-profit entities based on these protocols.


Correct! Your Promise app could also be ILP-based for the payment part of
contract execution. Even if you don't publish its source code, you can make
it compatible with other people's apps.

That means, you use your Promise app, other members use their own software
on their own server, yet payments succeed end-to-end. That's the
Interledger vision.

There is a public network of ILP-enabled servers, see https://connector.land
.

Would you be interested in joining the public Interledger network with your
Promise app?


The purpose is to convene upon open standards.  Through a standard
language, all can benefit.
