Continued discussion: Creating a Stellar Ecosystem Standard for Send / Receive Transactions

Apr 30, 2020

Round Table Discussion

Tune in to as we continue hashing out a Stellar Ecosystem Standard for Send / Receive Transactions! (click 'Learn More' to watch the previous discussion)If you want to read up to prepare, check out the discussion on Github.The gist: right now, there's a widely used ecosystem standard for Deposit / Withdrawal transactions that Stellar anchors and wallets implement to allow users to obtain and redeem Stellar-network tokens in exchange for fiat currencies using their interface of choice.However, many traditional remittance and business-to-business payments require a different kind of interaction: money moves from a sender's bank account to a recipient's, or from cash on the counter to cash out the door. These Send / Receive transactions skip the deposit and withdrawal steps entirely, and by doing so, present their own set of opportunities and challenges. Currently, there's no standard way to execute them on Stellar; the goal of this experiment is to start to hammer one out live and in public.Over the course of an hour, listen as representatives from Cowrie, Tempo, Satoshipay, FinClusive and the Stellar Development Foundation try to figure out the best way to implement a solution. There's a live Q&A at the end, so bring your best questions!Tune in Thursday 4/30 at 11:30 AM ET / 8:30 AM PT
