ILP Summit - Summary:
Last month, the Interledger Foundation held the ILP Summit in New Orleans, where over 107 community members from 19 countries attended in person, and over 1,100 people joined virtually. The welcome reception and expo featured the 2022 ILP-Financial Services grant awardees showcasing their projects, which helped kick off the conversations and set the stage for the following two days.
