Hi @stan-stripe,

My understanding of the question today is: can we create a bitcoin (or other cryptocurrency) payment method? 

I have not put any thought into what features may be needed in PR API beyond what we have today. In the past, we added the (transaction) id to PR API for push payments or other methods that might require reconciliation. I don't know whether that suffices; work on a payment method would help us determine that.

Regarding interledger, @adrianhopebailie has indicated he will be bringing a payment method spec to the Working Group. We are not yet officially working on that but we intend to.
Ian
