@vikalpj
Sure @millerabel, I have already setup a vagrant box for testing things at my end :)

Hi Guys,
Great project here. Am having a few challenges getting up and running with my test environment. Vagrant is up, however there are no running services. Can someone please point me in the right direction.
Bhodghead
@Bhodghead
Instructions are here: https://github.com/mojaloop/interop-devops/blob/master/README.md. You can try the startup.sh, which should start the services.

@drakessenyonga
thank you @Bhodghead. Is there any sample data for the dsfp
like the dfsp-admin
login
Bill Hodghead
@bhcrosslake
Hi @drakessenyonga, the dfsp admin interface (typically port 8020 on the DFSP instance) will give you a login screen. You can use any valid account on that DFSP as: <phone>@maker or <phone>@checker to connect as a maker or checker account type.
In order to create an acount just go through the USSD interface (port 8019). Enter a 10 digit phone number and walk through the menus to create an account.
Bill Hodghead
@bhcrosslake
The next question you're probably goint to ask is "what's the format of the bulk payment file?" so I can send money to a bunch of people using the DFSP admin interface.

Dear @bhcrosslake I am Co-fonder of the payments technology provider, we provide payments technology to banks, telecoms and payment service providers. I like the idea of Mojaloop, I have specific questions 1. How can I use Mojaloop, is Mojaloop something like Ripple already connected to banks and financial institutions. 2. Can I access the Ripple network working with Mojaloop.
Bill Hodghead
@bhcrosslake
Welcome @mishrankur, Mojaloop is free software licensed under Apache 2.0 that can be used to link together multiple mobile financial providers. It provides central services for clearing, settlement, and some shared fraud/rules services. At this time, Mojaloop is software, not a service. Mojaloop uses Ripple's Interledger protocol without change, and can connect to networks using Interledger.

@ernesteze
Hi @kjw000 is there also a German number to dial in to?

@kjw000
sorry - I don't have one but you can join the Skype link instead: https://meet.gatesfoundation.org/miller.abel/KC4LMGBP
Antony Omeri
@OmexIT
Hi, am from Kenya, I am interested to link master card and visa and MPESA, I am a little stuck on how to begin.
ernesteze
@ernesteze
@bhcrosslake can we use mojaloop
@bhcrosslake can we use mojaloop to create mobile money wallets that are carrier agnostic?
ernesteze
@ernesteze
@kjw000 unfortunately I could not join the conversation. Do you have a summary of the Telco or are going to do another one?
Kimberly Walters
@kjw000
@ernesteze - mojaloop has not been deployed yet to DFSPs so currently no. However the vision is that the mojaloop open source software would be able to provide for interoperability. And yes I will provide a summary of the conference and also plan to have another one in a couple of months.
ernesteze
@ernesteze
Cool thanks @kjw000! Will you post in this chat or circulate a document via e.g email?
Kimberly Walters
@kjw000
I can set another room in Gitter and post since I do not have everyone's email address.
Bill Hodghead
@bhcrosslake
@OmexIT, Mojaloop is not yet running as a service, it's code that will require regulator approval and bank onboarding. We treat all providers as a simple ledger and use a set of APIs for customer lookup, quoting, and clearing that the financial provider would have to support (or have their APIs adapted to). Does that help?
Antony Omeri
@OmexIT
@bhcrosslake It does help, can someone adapt the code to current scenario where you have floats & accounts on all provider's ecosystem? while waiting for appprovals
Bill Hodghead
@bhcrosslake
@OmexIT Mojaloop leaves a lot of those details to the provider, thought we only support sending money, not pulling funds. The closest we get to a "pull" is that a merchant can create a pending transaction to request that someone send them money. If the payer agrees, the payer sends the money to the merchant.
Clearing is two phase, where the money is put on hold at the payer provider, the transfer goes to the payee. If they agree, the message goes back through the center to the payer and they complete the transfer putting money into a settlement account. We do deferred net settlement that can be resolved on a frequency determined by the scheme.

@brockhager
Hello I am Brock and I am new here. I have been in bitcoin/blockchain since 2013 and I am interested in this platform to see how it can help the 2 billion people without bank account globally. I have worked in IT for over 11 years
Bhodghead
@Bhodghead
Welcome @brockhager
Brock
@brockhager
Thanks @Bhodghead ! Looking to try to implement this solution for people around the world. I am not a coder but I work with them all the time
I have my own web server where I can host applications. Just need a developer that can help do customized coding if needed
Brock
@brockhager
If someone can message me directly we can work to get this system set up
otherwise send me an email at brockhager@gmail.com
Bill Hodghead
@bhcrosslake
@brockhager, Mojaloop uses Interledger as an underlying protocol, which is not blockchain. We follow the level one principles: https://leveloneproject.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/L1P_Level-One-Principles-and-Perspective.pdf which include transparency in knowing your customer and auditing.
The developers who wrote the central ledger and central directory for Mojaloop happen to be near you at Dwolla.
Brock
@brockhager
Yeah Des Moines!
Very cool
Thanks for the information. Will I be able to run something off of my web server in order to help or what would be a good start point for me?
Is this a testnet or mainnet?
How long has testing been going on? Is this in Production for anyone?
Bill Hodghead
@bhcrosslake
Probably not yet. As I said, this isn't a block chain system. It's meant to be setup by financial providers and regulators in-country.
Brock
@brockhager
Correct. Got it. Just wondering how I can help out
I'm not a developer. More of a Systems Analyst and testing
Bill Hodghead
@bhcrosslake
We released open source in Oct, and have been testing since then. We are currently working on changing the code to be more deployable for groups that are interested in Africa
Brock
@brockhager
ok. Hopefully they are able to on-board OK. If there are ways for non-coding IT people to be involved, let me know
Bill Hodghead
@bhcrosslake
OK. I'm not sure at the moment, but I'll ask around. We're mostly looking for devs right now, but there ought to be other ways to help
Brock
@brockhager
OK Thanks. I'm not on this chat very often so if you can't reach me here, my email is brockhager@gmail.com Thanks!
I saw this on the forum:

Hello!

We are a Digital Services organization in Colombia and are building a network to assist with the high cost of moving money from the U.S. to Latin America.

Our team has discovered Mojaloop and after reviewing Github, we are considering implementing it within our solution.

We are looking for guidance and would love to connect with the Level One Project to create a case study in Colombia.

Please reach me at mathew@digi.coffee

Thanks!
