The next community gathering for Program Increment (PI) 11 is here! The first online meeting was a huge success back in April. Once again, we will be meeting virtually July 20-24, 2020! I’m excited to share a bit about what’s new for this month’s convening. First, as usual, a little about Mojaloop and the purpose of our quarterly community meetings.

Mojaloop is the world’s first open source platform for interoperability in a real-time payment network. We helped build it with the purpose of driving financial inclusion. As the world navigates through the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of Digital Payment Offerings has been realized like never before. Even during the pandemic’s relatively short lifetime, there has been much progress towards real-time payments and interoperability. Additionally, this challenging time has conversely highlighted the gaps that still exist and how interoperable solutions, such as Mojaloop, can solve for the system’s shortcomings. The efforts of the community at this convening in prioritizing Roadmap topics and by contributing via other means can have a significant impact.
