Ripple Hints Its Cryptocurrency Product Will Go Live ‘In The Next Month Or So’

Blockchain start-up Ripple could launch a commercial application of its cryptocurrency-focused product “in the next month or so,” an executive at the company has told CNBC.

Sagar Sarbhai, head of regulatory relations for Asia-Pacific and the Middle East at Ripple, said Monday that the firm was making significant headway with its xRapid product, which is aimed at helping banks speed up transactions by using the cryptocurrency XRP.

“I am very confident that in the next one month or so you will see some good news coming in where we launch the product live in production,” Sarbhai said of xRapid in an interview with CNBC’s Arjun Kharpal.

Ripple says its xRapid product uses the XRP cryptocurrency as a kind of “bridge” between currencies, allowing payment providers and banks to process faster cross-border transactions.

For example, a bank might want to process a transaction from U.S. dollars to Indian rupees. According to Ripple, this process requires pre-funded local currency accounts in order to take place. With xRapid, Ripple claims that process would be sped up by converting the U.S. dollars into XRP tokens, to then move the money overseas, converting it back into Indian rupees at the other end.

Ik kocht dit voorjaar wat Ripple's en een wallet.
Ik was ondertussen bijna vergeten dat ik die nog had.

Die wallet moet ergens onderaan een kast liggen,
vanavond toch nog even kijken of ik die kan terugvinden. :D

Ripple Is Up 150% This Week, Passes Ethereum As 2nd Largest Cryptocurrency

Altcoin Ripple has soared over 150% this week (up 50% today) to its highest level since May as optimism spread surrounding Ripple Labs Inc.’s plans for using a digital coin.

The optimism spread, dragging the rest of the crypto-space higher on the week..

And, as CoinTelegraph's Moilly Jane Zuckerman notes, Ripple (XRP) has now overtaken Ethereum (ETH) to be ranked number two by total market capitalization on CoinMarketCap.

As of press time, Ripple has a listed market cap of around $23.39 billion, while Ethereum - now in third on CoinMarketCap - has around $23.2 billion in market cap.

Notably the last two times that XRP has topped ETH, it has quickly collapsed.

Bitcoin (BTC) is still ranked number one, with a market cap of around $116 billion.

At the beginning of this week, Ripple executives hinted that it may launch a service that will use the digital currency “in the next month or so.". Called xRapid, the service lets financial companies such as payment providers speed up money transfers into emerging markets using XRP, which Ripple says is an independent digital asset. A Ripple spokeswoman said Thursday that there isn’t an official commercial release timeline at this point.

Also this week, PNC, a top ten U.S. bank, announced that it would use RippleNet to process international payments for its customers.

New Ripple Payment Service Sends XRP Soaring

Ripple’s XRP cryptocurrency outperformed this week the top 10 digital assets with a 43% gain. This was caused by a recent announcement from the company that XRP will be used in a new payment service developed by Ripple Labs Inc.

One of Ripple’s executives made a live statement on CNBC about their new project called xRapid, which will be available in the next month. This service will let financial companies such as payment providers speed up money transfers using XRP.
What changed?

Ripple’s main product that is used by over 100+ companies, called xCurrent, doesn’t require the use of XRP – Companies use the network to settle transactions fast, without influencing the price of the digital currency.

But now, XRP will have real value on the market due to the new xRapid service that can be used by anyone in the world who has access to it.

“xRapid leverages this commutation system to allow institutions to settle inter-bank transactions using the XRP digital asset,” Lucas Nuzzi, director of technology at Digital Asset Research, said in an email. “The use of XRP is mandatory with this product.”

XRP was released on as a fully operational distributed ledger in June 2012 , with 100 billion XRP created before Ripple the company was formed in September 2012. After Ripple was founded, the creators of XRP, gifted a substantial amount of XRP to the company. Ripple owned about 60 billion XRP, with the majority of it held in escrow, as of July, according to information listed on the company’s website.

Zal Ripple zorgen dat crypto mainstream wordt?

Na het maandenlange negatieve sentiment en de bijbehorende bearish markt kon het niet anders dat men zich ging afvragen waar het eindstation van deze correctie zou liggen. Hoewel niemand dit met zekerheid kan zeggen hebben we de afgelopen dagen wel een licht puntje gezien in een verder toch wel negatieve markt.

Ripple (XRP) is namelijk in zeer korte tijd met meer dan 80% gestegen. De coin heeft zelfs in market cap de stabiele nummer 2 Ethereum voor korte tijd onttroont. Om vervolgens na een correctie van 50% weer op de 3e plek staat. Er gaan meerdere redenen de rondte in die mogelijk voor deze stijging kan hebben gezorgd. Van het kenbaar maken van de positieve resultaten van verschillende testen tot de komende speech van Bill Clinton.

Justin Sun, de eigenaar van Tron, heeft via twitter zijn enthousiasme over de recente stijging van XRP uitgesproken. Hoewel de meeste mensen in de crypto markt fel tegen de ripple zijn toont Justin Sun hiermee aan achter de munt te staan. Voor veel mensen in de crypto scene zal dit bericht van Justin als raar worden gezien, echter zal je het tegendeel snappen wanneer je weet dat Justin in het begin één van de eerste medewerkers bij Ripple was. Hij was namelijk de hoofdadviseur van het lab.

Naast deze reden is er nog een reden die misschien wel belangrijker is. De Tron Foundation is namelijk een aandeelhouder in Ripple. Hoewel de precieze bezittingen niet duidelijk zijn is de vreugde van Justin wel te verklaren. Justin geeft aan met name blij te zijn met de stijging omdat het project XRapid binnen korte tijd gelanceerd zal worden. Hierdoor is hij overtuigd dat financiële instituties nu eindelijk open zullen gaan staan voor adoptie van de blockchain technologie. Volgens Justin dus een goeie stap in het mainstream worden van Crypto.

Voormalig president van Amerika Bill Clinton zal op 1 en 2 oktober één van de hoofdsprekers zijn op het Swell evenement.

Xrp heeft een marktaandeel van ruim $22 miljard en de prijs ligt momenteel ruim boven de $0,55. Desondanks werd de kortstondige veroverde marktpositie ook weer snel ingeleverd door een stijging van Ethereum. Hierdoor staat Ripple nu momenteel met $2 miljard minder op de 3e plek.

Content Creators on YouTube, Twitch, and Wikipedia Can Now Accept Ripple (XRP)

Content creators on the internet will now be able to accept payments in XRP tokens directly from their users.

The tipping-for-content has become possible because of Coil, the brainchild of Stefan Thomas, the former CTO of Ripple Labs. The San Francisco company has launched the beta version of its browser extension app of the same name, which allows users to tip content creators directly via XRP tokens. While the concept is arguably borrowed from Changetip, a now-defunct bitcoin tipping app, Coil somewhat has established its advancement by posing itself as an alternative to today’s ad-supported web.

“For decades, people have discussed the potential of micropayments to support content creators that would move us away from the broken ad-supported web,” Thomas said. “Others have created subscription services that bundle content. But micropayments and subscriptions have always been built as closed systems, which fail to capture the huge variety of content on the web.”

Coil is actually the first when it comes to paying out websites using Web Monetization, an Interledger-powered standard that would enable browsers to pay websites. Towards that goal, Coil will be compatible with some of the biggest names in the web industry, including YouTube, Wikipedia, Twitch, Internet Archive, and Beat, for starters.

twitch

The Coil launch packs a lot of possibilities for future adoption, specifically in the case of subscription-based content. Discussions on various online forums are filled with references to websites that offer content for monthly subscriptions. These subscriptions allow users to access unlimited content on the site. However, the fact remains that users seldom utilize the entire package. The only solution proposed to tackle the issue is pay per view.

Coil offers a use case. The browser extension could promise to unleash web content for XRP, be they text, video, sound, or other.

“Think Spotify, think Uber, think ads on the web – or no more ads on the web,” a Redditor commented while referring to Coil’s additional features, which include paywall bypassing, and lesser ads display. “This is just the beginning of Internet of Value! COIL is big, COIL is huge – Coil deserves as much attention as we are giving Ripple!”

Coil could lock horns with Brave on micro-payments. The latter is not an extension but a full-featured web browser in itself that somewhat offers the same services as Coil via its BAT tokens. Brave already has an exception user-base of over 4 million active individuals. The browser also provides privacy and ad-blocking to further its attractiveness to an average crypto user. The team behind the project expects to attract over 5 million users by the end of this year.

The crypto market is still young, and there is room for innovation for every project. Coil, despite its celebratory launch, could up its game with future updates. So far, the micropayment browser app could at least boost the bullish potential of XRP tokens, which are already rising high amid a strong buying sentiment phase.

Ripple’s Prayers of Listing on the Prominent Exchange May be Answered by Nasdaq

After waiting for over a year to be listed on a prominent exchange, XRP still hasn’t been able to make way to be listed on Coinbase. But according to latest developments, XRP may soon find itself listed on Nasdaq’s new exchange initiative giving XRP a first high profile exchange listing

Nasdaq- Ripple’s knight in the shining armor

While the story is yet to be confirmed by an official announcement, certain sections of media have reported that there is close relationship building up between Ripple and Nasdaq executives. The conversation between the two have been going on for four months and XRP is set to be one of the initial coins listed when Nasdaq launches its crypto exchange in early 2019.

If reports are to be believed, the foundation for the partnership really gets down to one issue for the Nasdaq – Market Cap. While Nasdaq is keen on listing coins with the largest market cap coins, a crypto bubble that remains polarized concerning XRP is still a hurdle.

Two sources close to this development were quoted by certain sections of media. One source at Nasdaq said:

“We aren’t interested in the noise. We are interested in scale. If we start this initiative with the top five or seven coins by market capitalization, why would we exclude $XRP? There is no good reason to exclude them, at least the way that we are evaluating our work. Look at it this way – there is just as much noise around Bitcoin Cash as there ever has or ever will be around Ripple’s cryptocurrency. And Bitcoin Cash is listed almost ubiquitously across all exchanges. So, we see no reason to exclude $XRP. Instead, we’ve learned in and embraced what they bring to the table. You really can’t argue that the firm has a top-notch executive team and is as buttoned up as you will find in crypto.”

The second source at Nasdaq who explained the MarketCap thesis said

“Market cap is just about everything here. Ripple and $XRP could be the second largest cryptocurrency at any moment. So, the decision to include them in our initial offerings is an absolute no-brainer. Easy to do based on the firms’ management team and their continued execution within the banking sector. And we’ve largely eschewed the ‘security token’ debate. Market cap is what plays for us as we develop these solutions. Ripple checks that box and then some. Not to mention they’ve been extremely forthcoming from a due diligence standpoint and made several different members of their management team available to us at a moment’s notice. Adding that to the scale of their coin makes it an easy decision at launch.”

Another comment came in from Ripple’s side which confirmed their talks with Nasdaq,

“Yes, we’ve been in discussions with Nasdaq around their exchange initiative and have been willing to answer any and all due diligence questions. We believe in what we are doing here, our products and services, and $XRP as well. Nasdaq will ultimately be the final arbiter of who gets listed next year, but we believe we will be firmly in that group. Without giving too much away, the excitement around here for where this is headed is pretty fun to watch. The Nasdaq exchange and custody product is going to be something special.”

Coinbase’s listing policy revamp could also find XRP on Coinbase

While this Nasdaq story is still brewing, there is another story developing of XRP listing after Coinbase revamped its listing policy. San Francisco-based Coinbase has announced its new policy to “rapidly list all assets that meet our standards and are compliant with the local law,” according to a new blog post published on September 25th, 2018. While Coinbase did not mention XRP specifically, speculators and crypto enthusiasts have already started speculating that the token may be the beneficiary of this policy change.

While both the news are still not yet confirmed, the developments come as good news for XRP and Ripple community. The prices of XRP would skyrocket once both the exchanges confirm listing XRP.

Ripple Announces Ripple for Good, Social Giving Will Top $100 Million

Program will focus on education and financial inclusion

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ripple, provider of the leading enterprise blockchain solutions for payments, announced its formal social impact program, Ripple for Good. Ripple for Good will focus on projects related to education and financial inclusion. Building on the momentum of recent donations totaling more than $80 million, Ripple is committing an additional $25 million. Ripple is currently in the process of assessing a number of high quality projects to determine how those resources will be allocated.

“Today’s announcement to create an even deeper alignment with RippleWorks is another validation of Ripple’s long-standing commitment to leverage its technology, financial resources and team to improve lives. RippleWorks is thrilled to have even more of Ripple's help to solve the massive challenges facing people throughout the world.”

Ripple’s new focus reflects its view that education, particularly in STEM and FinTech, is a key driver of innovation across all sectors. Ripple’s contributions to teaching and research in blockchain (through the University Blockchain Research Initiative), cryptocurrency and fintech are intended to encourage broader understanding, adoption and innovation in business and finance, computer science, law and policy and other relevant fields. In particular, Ripple for Good will focus on applications and real-world use cases with the potential for scalable social impact.

As a mission-driven company focused on dramatically improving how money moves globally, Ripple is also committed to ensuring that the benefits of innovation in banking and global payments are broadly accessible and available. Ripple’s product set and its subject matter expertise represent a unique opportunity to contribute to the ongoing push for global financial inclusion.

“When we reflected on the unique role Ripple could play from a social impact standpoint, we kept landing on the idea that the benefits of these new technologies should reach as many people as possible,” said Ken Weber, Head of Social Impact for Ripple. “If we are truly committed to transformative global change, we will work to help ensure that innovations in banking and global payments are available everywhere to everyone, among unbanked and underbanked populations and in economies and economic sectors that serve the greater good. Our goal is to deliver on the promise of an Internet of Value for all.”

Ripple for Good will collaborate with RippleWorks, a nonprofit co-founded by Chris Larsen and Doug Galen that supports social ventures across multiple sectors, including financial inclusion and education. Ripple For Good hopes to learn from - and build on - RippleWorks’ experience addressing financial exclusion around the world. It will do so by identifying organizations and initiatives to support as well as engaging Ripple’s employees in hands-on volunteer project work.

“Ripple was built upon the belief that its technology could improve lives, and they had the foresight to support RippleWorks four years ago as proof that those weren’t just words. Since then, RippleWorks has worked on 70 projects in 55 countries to improve the lives of over three million patients, six million students and 250 million people,” said Doug Galen, co-founder and CEO of RippleWorks. “Today’s announcement to create an even deeper alignment with RippleWorks is another validation of Ripple’s long-standing commitment to leverage its technology, financial resources and team to improve lives. RippleWorks is thrilled to have even more of Ripple's help to solve the massive challenges facing people throughout the world.”
