We recently wrapped up our 16th Mojaloop Community Meeting, a three-day online event that focused entirely on technical sessions. As always, the meeting brought together digital payments experts and leaders from around the world to share updates and educational sessions covering reference architectures, business frameworks, governance and beyond. If you missed a session or just want a recap, check out our YouTube channel, and read on for meeting highlights.
Reference Architecture and V2 Update
To kick off our sessions on day one, we got a reference architecture update from Pedro Barreto of Crosslake Tech and Miguel de Barros of ModusBox. The presenters shared an update of what’s been worked on to date, presented the new Reference Architecture Documentation site and refreshed the audience on what Reference Architecture is, its general principles and benefits. They also talked about the Mojaloop Marketplace vision, an ecosystem where Mojaloop partners can not only contribute to the Foundation but extend the platform with other features in a sustainable way. Check out the full talk here.
Business Operations Framework for Mojaloop
Following that, Paul Baker of ModusBox took us through the work they’ve been doing in the Business Operations framework workstream and showed us how we can use it and what they’re thinking about doing for the next PI. To date, the business operations framework workstream has delivered documented business processes, a production ready Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) design using the Ory tool set, a backend reporting API that is RBAC enabled to support the development of interactive UIs and a JAMStack micro front-end framework that decouples efforts from independent workstreams and had good performance and is easy to secure.

Documentation, Onboarding, Sandbox
Later on in the week, Sam Kummary from ModusBox and Lewis Daly from Crosslake Tech provided an extensive Documentation update. Docs v2 is coming later this month, with a preview now available here. The session gave updates on the two hackathons supported by the community in the last PI: the MAS CDBC Hackathon and the HiPipo Women in Fintech Hackathon. It also shared updates and improvements to the Sandbox and covered other various documentation updates from the community. Get all the details here.
Actio: An OSS Anti-Financial Crime and Risk Management Solution
In this session, we got an update on Actio, an open source, fraud risk management solution that has been in the works for the past year. It started with a proof of concept where the team did an initial build of the architecture and focused on performance achievement with an open source software solution for fraud risk management. They test drove the architecture across five different typologies and achieved 8,000 transactions/second. From there, they built the pipeline and data infrastructure, attached a number of components and over time developed the current PI, PI4. To learn more about the project and plans going forward, listen to the whole talk.
