  1. "With more than 8 million customers and retail branches in 19 states, PNC has a diverse set of customers, including consumers, small businesses and large corporates. Ripple’s technology will have an immediate impact on each of those groups, enabling PNC’s commercial clients to receive payments from overseas banks in real time."
  2. https://ripple.com/insights/ripplenet-expands-to-40-countries-improving-remittances-and-sme-payments/ "As of today, RippleNet is active in over 40 countries across six continents. New payment corridors have opened up in North America, Asia, Africa, Europe and South America. This provides new access to better international payment services in markets where remitters and SMEs are in the most need. What’s more, RippleNet’s newest corridors have a combined potential market that totals over $2 Billion in inflows over the last year: InstaReM and RationalFX opened up new corridors from the United Kingdom to Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Remitr and FlutterWaveestablished a RippleNet corridor to Nigeria from Canada, the first connection on RippleNet in Africa. BeeTech and InstaReM created corridors from Brazil to Spain, Italy, Germany, France and Portugal. This year alone, global remittances are expected to reach $642 billion. This is more than three times the official government aid received worldwide in 2017. There is no doubt that access to faster, more reliable and lower cost international payments services offers a lifeline for tens of millions of the world’s poor."

  5. From the articel: "In a clear statement by Weiss Ratings, which is dedicated to attacking those who stand against XRP, Weiss said they are seeing series of hostilities against the cryptocurrency, however, Weiss said it’s wondering why, since Ripple has a clear use in the crypto world when compared to other cryptocurrencies without use cases but with shady motives."

  7. Guess whats also going into production by the end of the year. RippleNet could mean both, xCurrent or xRapid... even xVia
  8. I do not think that's a big problem. The banking world does not just work in black and white. If 61 Japanese banks in a consortium use xRapid, there are other banks that continue to use SWIFT. Money is also transferred to these other banks. So why not upgrade the old technology? Even though xRapid goes live, Brad once mentioned that in 4-5 years, they want to have about 50% of all banks as partners. Changes do not happen overnight... Quality will win in the end
  9. Insane entertainment here. Thanks, people. It will happen and we all know. Lean back and just enjoy the melody.
