I... think so? I'm still a little confused about how Interledger and XRP payments are connected, and how Interledger, Coil, and Web Monetization is connected. If Payment Pointers could be directly connected to multiple wallets, or be interchangeable with wallet addresses that would be interesting.

I wish someone could do a writeup on how Interledger/Coil/Web Monetization differs from other wallets and systems. As far as I understand, Interledger, Coil, and Web Monetization is an offshoot of Ripple, so prefers XRP, but I'm confused as to why and it's different from sending payments directly to wallet addresses. It would be really cool if one could send and received NFT into a Web Monetized / Interledger / Payment Pointer-supported wallet!

I've also been a bit surprised with how complicated wallets like Gatehub are compared to something like Metamask, which takes like a minute to set up and don't need any KYC.

I agree with Gatehub's complication. Metamask is so seamless. Maybe that will be a new iteration? Because if it was as seamless as metamask adoption would be eaiser, in my opinion.

Yeah I completely agree! We're trying to explain Coil to our community members for our grant project and everyone's eyes just kind of... completely glaze over. I had to spend 2-3 hours explaining how it all works to my project partner.

I don't think any amount of explainers will make it easier- the workflow and the wallets need to be redesigned. Really hoping the team can get wallet providers to adopt the Rafiki system soon.

Jan, we feel your pain. Working at how we might use funding to start to support the ecosystem better.
