  1. @brucel Interledger is developed by an open group of companies

    and individual contributors, loosely organized as part of a Community Group of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Interledger is an open protocol suite for sending payments across different ledgers. Like routers on the Internet, connectors route packets of money across independent payment networks. The open architecture and minimal protocol enable interoperability for any value transfer system. Interledger is not tied to any one company, blockchain, or currency.

  4. Overview Web Monetization is a standard for websites to request

    micropayments from users - Websites provide a URL for their receiving account - A Web Monetization Agent decides the rate to pay the website - The User Agent uses Payment Handler to send payments

  5. Accepting Payments Put receiving account URL in <meta> tag in

    the page header - URL is provided by wallet (Payment Pointer) - URL is used to generate unique Interledger address per “session” Listen for DOM events indicating a payment has been made

  6. Sending Payments Users install a Payment Handler capable of paying

    via Interledger - Interledger + No User Interaction = Web Monetization payment method Users install a Web Monetization Agent - Specifics of User Agent integration are still TBD - Core requirement is user privacy Users authorize the agent to make payments (subject to limits) on their behalf - E.g. Token for user’s wallet
