  3. Late last year, Xi Jinping gave a speech declaring that blockchain technology presented an important breakthrough on several key areas within China and that the government intended to utilize the technology. Xi Jinping claimed that the development of distributed ledger technology provided a pivotal moment in which it allowed the Chinese state to reform and improve the inefficiencies found within the Chinese financial market. Stating that “It is necessary to explore the application of ‘blockchain’ in people’s daily life, and actively promote the application of blockchain technology in the field
  4. Recently there has been a narrative the past few months that cryptocurrencies or the current digital assets traded on the open market are non-correlated assets to the traditional markets. While this rhetoric has been reiterated, there has not been any substantial evidence backing these claims. General retail investors would stereotypically agree that the crypto market behaves in a chaotic manner. Untethered from any external influences and simply driven by its gradual adoption as a means of transacting business without third parties or as a haven. But given historical macro movements, it appea
  5. Although arguments can be made against the notion of future adoption of the XRPL by the financial system thru supporting the retention of the current international payment system or emphasizing the technological progress in the SWIFT payment network, they fail to address critical flaws in today’s system. Hackers, political pressure, regulators, and the shrinking correspondent banking system are all legitimate issues that are impacting banking operations. Most international payments are facilitated through the SWIFT network today. SWIFT is a messaging network used to send and receive infor
  6. @KarmaCoverage It shows when desired, Corda has the ability to tap into the XRPL for liquidity. Nothing more, nothing less. I don't necessarily believe banks will be carrying each other's CBDCs as reserve currencies due the constant management entitled to it and it's possible consequences (see right now).

  9. Something else to add to the GCash speculation: GXI description, https://businessmirror.com.ph/western-union-expands-digital-distribution-through-gcash-mobile-wallets/
  10. ***this is speculation*** In the wake of AliPay's announcement of launching a cross-border remittance service powered by blockchain technology, a closer inspection of the partnerships reveals several layers of Ripple associates. The cross-border remittance services into the Philippines will be offered by in a collaboration between GCash, AliPay, and Standard Chartered. With further details on Standard Chartered's involvement, https://www.pymnts.com/news/cross-border-commerce/2018/alipay-gcash-blockchain-cross-border-remittance-philippines/ Standard Chartered is curren
  11. "The Governor also mentioned that the bank has begun working together with the Bank of Canada, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, and some private-sector organizations to upgrade inter-bank cross-border payments, including initiatives based on DLT." https://cointelegraph.com/news/bank-of-england-to-rebuild-settlement-system-to-interface-with-blockchain-platforms/amp?__twitter_impression=true
  12. I'll be honest to say I debated whether or not I should have included IBM/Stellar. I don't share your view on Stellar beating out Ripple in the region. Two of the big four banks in Australia (which dictates the region) are already xCurrent adopters while the other were in discussions with Ripple. Meaning in a small region interoperability between the big four banks will be critical. Whatever transpires there are two things that people need to take away in regards to Stellar. 1. Any transactions involving with RippleNet users will by default make Stellar users utilize the interledger prot
