1st ETH -> XRP Interledger Escrow Payment

Here are the transaction IDs (and links to the block explorers) for the first livenet Ethereum and Ripple Consensus Ledger (RCL) escrowed transfers comprising an Interledger payment.

On RCL, this uses Escrow Transactions and on Ethereum uses this smart contract.

The payment was sent using ILP Kits using the ledger plugins: ilp-plugin-xrp-escrow and ilp-plugin-ethereum.

Interested? Come join us for the 3rd Interledger Workshop in Berlin on June 1-2. We'll be working on new ledger plugins for Lightning, Zcash, and your preferred ledger! We'll also help you get setup with your very own ILP Kit.

This is huge

Why would this not be possible with the Stellar protocol?

Stellar doesn't support held payments that depend on a crypto-condition (hashlock) to release.

@ReneFroger note that this is not demonstrating a payment through two tokens on the same ledger, this is an atomic swap across two independent ledgers. ETH stays on Ethereum.

The Ripple Consensus Ledger and Stellar by themselves can do atomic transactions only through assets issued onto the same ledger. If Stellar adds escrow transfers it will be possible to do payments across Stellar and other ledgers as well.

Great :)
How the different "timings" of the two networks is handled? RCL requires seconds to use the escrow, and ETH? What is the ETH contract doing?

Here's the contract that was used to make the conditional ETH transfer:

@tuloski Great question. In Interledger payments the hold time for the sender's transfer is slightly longer than the hold time for the next connector, which is longer than the next connector, and so on. So in this case the hold time of the Ethereum escrow contract was longer than the XRP escrow hold time.

Since any transactions on blockchains are always going to be relatively slow, doing Interledger over payment channels would make for a better experience. Stay tuned for more on that ;)

@emschwartz what do you mean with interledger over payment channels? I know about paymentchannels using XRP on the RCL but I suppose this is not the same
