Re: Fineract CN / Stellar bridge


Hi James and Myrle -

I am wondering if we could combine these efforts to create a Stellar
integration with the current payment gateway project that we are working
on. Sanyam is developing this code under Rahul's mentorship. We designed
the gateway to be very flexible so that we could configure any number of
payment providers - MFIs, MMPs, or platforms like Mojaloop or
Stellar/Ripple.

While our development is currently oriented around Fineract V1, we have
architected the gateway so that it can function as a micro-service and
should be compatible with Fineract CN. All interactions with Fineract are
done through ActiveMQ.

Myrle, perhaps we could connect on your requirements and ensure that this
gateway project will meet your needs as far as Stellar integration.

Thanks,
Steve
