Hyperledger Quilt

What is Hyperledger Quilt?

Hyperledger Quilt offers interoperability between ledger systems by implementing the Interledger protocol (also known as ILP). ILP is primarily a payments protocol and is designed to transfer value across distributed ledgers and non-distributed ledgers. The Interledger protocol provides atomic swaps between ledgers (even non-blockchain or distributed ledgers) and a single account namespace for accounts within each ledger. With the addition of Quilt to Hyperledger, The Linux Foundation now hosts both the Java (Quilt) and JavaScript (Interledger.js) Interledger implementations.

Hyperledger Quilt was initially contributed by NTT Data and Ripple.

What are some of the features of the Inter Ledger Protocol used by Hyperledger Quilt?

  • ILP provides a set of rules for enabling ledger interoperability with basic escrow semantics.
  • ILP provides a standard for a ledger-independent address format and data packet format that will enable connectors to route payments.
  • ILP is a framework for designing higher level use-case-specific protocols.
