Haven’t you heard about Ripple over the last few weeks? You were probably dead or hiding under some rock because it’s been grabbing all the crypto world headlines. That’s not a coincidence at all. Ripple has been proving that it’s not just another project or cryptocurrency but a fully working solution for the global problem of international transactions.
Ripple’s blockchain technology and currency are not just persuading the cryptosphere of how useful they are, but they are also enticing some of the world’s biggest firms that would not have come close to the blockchain tech otherwise. If you are an investor you should keep a close eye on Ripple, let us tell you why.
It will keep growing
Recently Banco Santander announced the release of OnePay FX which is a blockchain app intended to make international transactions quicker, safer, cheaper. And it’s based on Ripple’s technology (it also uses the coin sometimes).
The partnership with Banco Santander is a huge deal. This is the bank considered to be the world’s best as of today, and it has a presence everywhere in Europe and the Americas. Santander will use Ripple’s blockchain and platform to carry out its international transfers, improve their customer service dramatically and save a ton of money on the way. This makes Ripple an essential player in this field as one of the very few crypto coins that have managed to find its way to the mainstream and provide a real-life service for actual people and actual firms.
Keep in mind that the financial industry is very conservative and very averse to change. If Ripple has persuaded them to adopt their platform and the coin (to some extent, to very little extent as of now) to do things differently, it’s because the service they are providing is precious indeed.
And new partnerships with some of the big world players keep getting announced frequently. Western Union, MoneyGram, InstaRem, BeeTech, and many others are already on board and enjoying the benefits. This creates confidence and curiosity for other financial institutions that are not still in the Ripple Net, but it can only mean many of them will also join soon. Mark our words, Ripple can only grow.
Ripple’s 1.0.0 is here, and it will be a game changer
About a couple of weeks ago, Ripple team announces the release of Ripple 1.0.0. The update has been in the works for six years already. It includes many improvements for Ripple’s platforms. This update will make the decentralized network mature, and more stable and current users and operators are being encouraged to update to the latest version. It also enhances the XRP ledger which is at the heart of Ripple’s service.
The SBI platform: Just fantastic
SBI is one of Japan’s largest banking services, and they’ve just launched a platform for virtual currencies. This is excellent news for Ripple’s XRP coin because transfer fees will use XRP and thus creating new demand and improve the asset’s performance. SBI has plans to add more features next month; the advancements in SBI’s system will surely impact XRP positively as it’s set as the primary currency on the platform.
Of course, SBI Holdings’ crypto exchange and release of Ripple’s 1.0.0 are just a couple of reasons to believe that the crypto is bound to fly. Ripple is showing how a cryptocurrency can make a difference in the real world by improving over traditional solutions to existing problems. It’s faster, more scalable, more available than Bitcoin and it’s on its way to becoming the most used crypto coin all over the world. And on top of everything, it is still very cheap ($0.56 at the time we write this).
