A new IETF non-working group email list has been created.

List address: ledger@ietf.org

To subscribe: https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/ledger

Purpose:

Moving digital assets (making payments) between accounts operating on different payment networks or ledgers is not possible in an open, interoperable way. Interledger is a protocol stack for doing this (transferring digital assets) over the Internet. It defines a set of formats for representing digital asset transactions and protocols for executing those transactions in a secure and verifiable manner. 

The project was started within a W3C community group in October 2015. There was a non-WG forming LEDGER BoF at IETF 96. The purpose of this list is to provide a venue for ongoing conversations about the interledger work and its relevance to the IETF.
