    New SBI presentation 31/01/19

    The stuff SBI are putting out about how SBI, R3 and Ripple work together in practice is huge : - I learnt a lot from this article which was posted on another thread by Jabit (my transcription of the first half of the text) In Japan we started to use an application for transferring money, called Moneytap. This application uses only DLT but I would like to make it XRP caperble. Once we are able to use XRP on “Corda” a R3 blockchain technology which SBI has been investing in, the financial transaction of trading can be done in a very short time. Because Corda has a function called smart contract (including easy verification of contract, implementation, execution, computer protocol for negotiation. The characteristics of this function is a to process the guaranteed trusted transaction without being intermediated by a third party). We can use it not only for international money transfers but also for all kinds of trades such as transaction of bonds and/or derivatives in the financial field. From our end, we would like to finish this feature of XRP like Corda. In order to do this, we would like to create a joint venture with R3 and SBI in Japan like we did with Ripple. And start up the consortium as soon as possible and develop the system while holding the conferences in which many people can learn the system to use in parallel. In this way, by using XRP, visitors from all over the world coming to Japan can pay bills without exchanging the money from US dollars to Japanese Yen. It is a new challenge for us. Next I want to talk about “S coin platform” which we have started. We issued local currencies “NISEKOPay” at Niseko in Hokaido and “US-Dalba Coin” at Odalba in Tokyo. Our goal is to incorporate XRP into this S coin platform and expand to the world level. To pursue this, we are considering using Corda of R3 as a foundation of this system. As soon as we set up the joint venture business, we will focus on expanding this system all over the world. It is perhaps my dream as well. To achieve this , we would like to progress step-by-step. R3 is characterised as possessing blockchain technology which can apply to a wide range of the field not just the financial world. On the other hand, Ripple has a strong feature on transferring money. Therefore, we can take advantage by using each characteristic by tasks. Use Ripple for international money transfer, and the rest of the transactions will be performed using Corda R3. A huge advantage is the function of Smart Contract. Our current strategy to expand worldwide is to complete the system before Osaka EXPO 2025. If we succeed, it will be revolutionary development. Likewise I believe that blockchain will be incorporated into all kinds of industries. It will get real as I always say that “work finance as a core and reach beyond finance” Therefore, SBI will not be solely a financial company but will be beyond.

    Unless I'm reading this wrong or misinterpreting...they are saying they saved over 13k on the transfer fee. So was this a multimillion dollar xRapid transfer? I thought they said they'd be gradually adding zeros to the transaction fee size as time went by? Am I reading this wrong?!

    We all got fooled again.

    Good news came out yesterday with the R3 and Swift partnership, we all got excited so the day traders used that as a time to do a 14% pump and dump. 24 hours later right back at the 30 cent range and probably about to fall into the upper 20s. I will admit that article about all of ripples partners been scams, was a bit unnerving to me . I have been around this firm for a long time and was a serious believer in Ripple, but admit that I am starting to have doubts about their future.

    I don't know what you want other people to say. If you feel like all the Ripple partnerships are somehow "scams", then surely you want nothing to do with XRP (if that's what you want someone to say)....just sell and rid this scamcoin from your portfolio.

    I said it last year and I'll say it now - SBI is going to push XRP to the next level of actually being utilized on mass and I still think they are going to be one of the main forces to initiate XRP's next bull run (both utility driven and speculative) - whenever they are ready to do I feel most people are underestimating SBI's impact on XRP because some seem to be disappointed from SBIVC's delay to march 2019 - but I think the main reason for it being delayed was a major hack on another japanese crypto exchange in 2018, so they decided to take more time for securing SBIVC in the best possible way -- BUT it will come - heck, even if it gets delayed again - it will come! Kitao said last year they are trying to settle the dispute between R3 and Ripple -- check Kitao said last year they are working on building a joint venture with R3 like they did with Ripple and forming a consortium -- check Kitao said last year they are going to push R3 to use XRP on it's Corda-Platform -- check Kitao recently said they are working on R3 to use XRP extensively -- I'm confident about that Kitao recently said they are planning to use XRP on their domestic payment system with moneytap in the future -- I'm confident about that Kitao recently said he thinks that 20 of the World’s Major Banks will Incorporate XRP for International Money Transactions in 2019 -- I'm confident about that I really don't think R3's corda is direct competition to ripple because thanks to SBI it seems that they are becoming one big blockchain consortium - with XRP in it's heart!

    Let's work this out based on their previous tweet where a food company saved £79.17 from sending £3521.67 $13,232 is £10,074.74 so we can work with a calcuation in the same currency. £79.17 is 2.248% of £3521.67 £10,074.74 is 2.248% of £448,164.59 .... so all things being equal (which they never are!) - they transacted £448,164.59 (which interestingly rounds up to $589,000).

    https://thexrpdaily.com/index.php/2019/01/31/sbi-group-confirms-moneytap-will-leverage-xrp/ Early this morning, XRP community member @Dillon tweeted out SBI Group’s latest financial report. Within the report, it confirms that the MoneyTap application which was created by the consortium of 61 banks in Japan is in fact using a digital asset, known as XRP. Currently there are only 3 banks leveraging the MoneyTap application, SBI Sumishin Net Bank, SURUGA Bank, and Resona Bank. However, SBI Ripple Asia announced in 2018 that this MoneyTap application would eventually be deployed with the 58 other banks in the consortium. Essentially, we could be seeing 61 individual banks in Japan, which account for 80% of the banking assets, all leveraging XRP for cross border remittances.

    It’s simple... R3 have a huge stack of xrp. The single biggest win they can have is if the XRP price rises. They have 1.2 billion reasons, and a major stockholder in SBI wanting the same, to do things to advance the XRP ecosystem and add to liquidity and to the price. So the OP suggestion that they would hop off into a walled garden and undercut their own xrp price is totally ludicrous. Corda can settle in XRP. That eliminates the need for Nostro accounts. A huge saving. It doesn’t have SWIFT fees. SBI is creating a huge custody and exchange ecosystem. Fidelity and others also add custody options. Price rises when everyone wants and uses an asset. It is as simple as that. So the OP question of why wouldn’t they lock themselves away from the global price discovery system so that they can operate in a walled garden is like asking ‘Why not shoot yourself in the foot?’.

    If this creates a new type is asset class, a "digital asset" or something that is not a security nor commodity, then I'm pretty sure this will be amongst the major changes to financial regulations since 1933. It seems to me to be as significant a change to financial regulations, as the Alice case made to the patent law framework.

    The page #136 statement really says it all: "Become a global standard for financial operations such as international money transfers and trade finance." This goes well beyond "just" int'l money transfers, but seeks to make the R3-Ripple solution A GLOBAL STANDARD mind you, for trade finance as well. I don't pretend to know the ramifications of what role, or even exactly what is trade finance, but I can tell that this isn't small potatoes by any stretch of the imagination. Wow, I just might be able to become the philanthropist of my dreams after all - no Lambo for this bad boy, I wanna start doing some good for others who are so much less fortunate than myself - that's what's go me so excited that I can barely contain myself.

    What a bunch of impatient whiners! What Ripple has managed to accomplish since their inception only a few years back is actually quite remarkable, and to equate a briefly stagnate xrp price with a lack of success, is either outright FUD or willful ignorance. The release of 1 billion xrp from escrow each month tempers the price appreciation enormously; like it or not; however, the genius behind their objective is clear. Ripple isn't going after some small-time nickel and dimes market, but is looking to position itself as THE major player in the the world-wide IoV. This necessarily requires such an enormous supply of xrp, to carry even just a modest percentage of that load. Like it or not, in the beginning especially, it's going to hold the price of xrp back. Even at "only" twenty or thirty cents, the price appreciation of xrp has been phenomenal as compared to 0.006 of only a short time ago - chill out people! If you don't believe in what the Ripple Team is already well on their way to accomplishing, then go elsewhere, do your homework, and see if you can find any other company that's as well thought out and is executing their plan as well as they are. This "when Lambo" mentality is so short-sighted as to be comical. Nothing in business or life is guaranteed, and I full well expect that Ripple will experience both set backs and failures along their way, but I'm also confident that their successes, over time, will eclipse these as they literally re-write the history of instantaneous money transfer as they establish the IoV. As always, time will tell.....

    I disagree. Yes, speculation is always present in "all" markets. That is not unique to xrp. Apple moves on speculation that the next earnings is going to be good or continue being bad, etc. The actual numbers are only momentary (albeit sometimes abrupt stock movements) and the rest is speculation on whether or not the news or numbers continue, change directions, etc.. Because Ripple is a newer company the numbers are less important than the news of partnerships, etc, but even the numbers are impressive for Ripple and XRP. Lately, news for Ripple and XRP has been tremendously positive and substantive. However, if you look at the charts at 1 a.m. just as both, xrp and BTC, were about to break out (in a run led by XRP) and up another leg, there was a large, abrupt BTC sell order wiping out the books. This has been the pattern since the last bull market. It is being manipulated by a few big players. XRP wants to go up and would if it were not attached to BTC and it were not being manipulated. I doubt we're years away from being out of this stronghold of a few wealthy players. I see it happening in months.

    You may be a serious believer in Ripple, as you say, but it's clear you don't actually understand the whole reason why to support Ripple and the XRP ecology. Crypto traders behaved like traders? Shocking. What does that have to do with anything? XRP is the only cryptocurrency that is being used other than as a mere store of value and outside of the crypto world. It's being used to send money internationally. Hard stop. This should and will increase, thus driving demand, thus driving price. It will take time for this to happen. Stop being impatient and whining about things that have nothing to do with anything.

    Bridge currency = key currency on the network. We must not forget this. XRP become the key currency of all assets. This is absolutely important. For example If all Fiat currencies make XRP key currency, the exchange demand will explode. XRP is hold by many people and companies on the network. Demand will explode and 100 billion XRP will be insufficient. It will be dollar with limited number of sheets. I can easily imagine the price going up.

    You are my hero @Hodor I made an account just to come here and say that. Well, that and also to start actively contributing to the community through this forum. This community is hands down the best in the entire crypto ecosystem in terms of leadership (ripple/coil/w3c/SBI), innovation (wietse wind, xpring), education (you!), and spirit (everybody else on discord, youtube) I've been consuming your blog for nearly two years now. That first post of yours that gave me that light-bulb moment was one that covered the announcement of the escrow in May '17. Ever since, I've been obsessed with learning everything there is to know about blockchain and digital assets and how this tech could apply to my career. I'm a graduate student in Pharmacology researching pain and addiction, specifically opioid receptor signaling at the molecular level, and I collaborate with chemists to develop safer and more effective opioid analgesics. Everyday more than 100 people in the US alone die from an opioid overdose...and everyday (in my free time) I think critically about how blockchain tech and this new and emerging infrastructure will employ true democratic principles, aligned incentives, transparency, etc... that could allow for unprecedented collaboration in biomedical research, expedite the tedious drug development process, and expand access to mental health care. Anyway, for my first post I just thought I'd add my two zerps and express my gratitude for all that you do to educate and your optimism. Cheers!

    We all got fooled again.

    Many of the people on this forum understand what I am going to type out but there are others who have no clue just how far we are from adoption and real "moon time". Investing in XRP is incredibly risky venture, this is a fact, you can not have insane return expectation without equally insane amount of risk. Do you buy a lotto ticket and complain you didn't win? There are so many ways Ripple/R3/Coil/XRP can fail it isn't even a joke, Swift can suddenly find a way to compete and already have the network effects in place, banks can decide that XCurrent is good enough, several G20 countries could suddenly outlaw Crypto across the board, etc. The chances of failure are so great but without them none of us would still be expecting 50x - 100x returns. So why are we here then and what time line are we looking at? Ripple and others building the XRP ecosystem have had the same vision for 5-6 years now, build the internet of value and put a dent in the universe. They want to do for the world's financial system what the internet did for information. When the internet was created no one suddenly had the internet, the literal pipes and cables had to be laid, network service providers had to be built, and people had to be sold on the idea of the internet and it's capabilities. The majority of that process took 10-15ish years. So where are we at? Ripple and co. are still laying the pipes, XCurrent is simply getting banks and payment providers on the same network. Once the network is big enough we can actually understand the maximum potential for this network and build upon that. If you are on this forum you likely believe that the maximum potential is everyone on that network uses XRP to send remittances instantly and cheaply around the world. That one day I can fly to japan, download their moneytap app, connect it to my bank account in the U.S. and instantly pay someone yen without even understand what's happening in the background. That is a long ******* time away but I see the potential. I escrowed my XRP with an understanding that this **** is binary, fail or pass, nothing in between. That is the risk, discount the money you expect XRP to return if successful anytime in the next 5 years, if it meets your return expectation awesome if it doesn't get out now. Agree with me or not on how I should be looking at XRP as an investment, I took money I could afford to lose ran to the casino and put it on 00, if you got in this with an expectation that would were for sure making money you need to google "risk-return" right now. Damordan, finance professor at NYU Stern, likes the Chinese symbol for risk because it is comprised of the symbols for danger and opportunity, whether that is the correct translation or not it is perfect for XRP. Edit: I chose 5 years because I got in this about a year and a half ago and Ripple escrowed their XRP until 2023. I believe that basically means they understand that if this thing isn't showing major signs of success by then it just isn't going to happen.

    As much as your YouTubers, Bear fuzzies, Twitter prophecies, etc want you to beleive this is a “cant miss” time and ships about to take off, they’re selling you on their channel and message and not XRP and Ripple. We’re years away from mass utikity adaption and even that is unknown. No, this isn’t FUD. It’s real talk that hopium junkies don’t want to admit. There is no utility yet. All increases move with the market or are based on speculation. Everyone and their brother knew yesterday was a pump and if you were smart, you’d have sold some and bought back in at the dip. Yes, holding long term will make money. However, there’s no reason not to make money in short term on pump and dumps based on speculation.
