An initiative to access interledger protocol

This partnership would help Ripple in allowing the developers to access the Interledger Protocol. The Ripple Interledger Protocol had been operable only in JavaScript up until last year as Ripple joined NTT Data, a Japanese System integration company to include this in the Java programming language.

The CTO of Ripple, Stefan Thomas said in a statement:

“Through our partnership with Hyperledger, developers will be able to access Interledger Protocol (ILP) in Java for enterprise use.”

Under the new moniker Hyperledger Quilt, both the companies submitted the reorganized protocol to the Hyperledger.

Thomas further explained:

“The Hyperledger Quilt project connects Hyperledger blockchains with other ILP-capable payment systems such as XRP Ledger, Ethereum, Bitcoin (Lightning), Litecoin, Mojaloop, and RippleNet, helping us to deliver on our vision for an internet of value – where money moves as information does today.”

A few of the recent companies to join Hyperledger are Blockchain Technology Partners, MATRIX Foundation, CULedger, Beijing Truth Technology and Spin Systems among many others. With Hyperledger planning to advance the open-source blockchain platforms and launch an enterprise blockchain tool, it’s a busy year ahead for the consortium.

Though Ripple made headlines with this partnership, it is still experiencing a price fall and is currently at $0.5344.
