    SWIFT and Ripple Integratioon

    Note that Swift's own DLT approach had failed: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/swift-official-blockchain-dead-end-patrick-mcconnell/ Of course we all know they can reach out to Ripple for solving their DLT dilemma.
  2. Source: https://cvvc.com/index.php/about-us/mediacorner/report-top-50-companies-blockchain-crypto Full PDF-Report: https://cvvc.com/index.php/download_file/view/380/363 Composed of data from: https://cryptovalley.directory/ Headline Zug-based investors CV VC, in collaboration with consultancy PwC Strategy& Switzerland and technology provider inacta, has compiled the first ever list of the top 50 companies in Crypto Valley. It reveals that Blockchain companies employ around 3000 people in Switzerland and Liechtenstein and have a combined market capitalization of US$ 44 billion. Included among the top 50 are five unicorns – startups with a market valuation of over a billion dollars. Zug, October 9, 2018 - The number of companies in Crypto Valley working with blockchain technology is growing rapidly. As of September 30, 2018, a total of over 600 blockchain related companies in Switzerland and Liechtenstein were registered on CV Maps, an online directory of the blockchain industry created and maintained by CV VC. The number is nearly double that recorded in the spring of this year. CV VC, a blockchain-focused investor and incubator in Zug, has worked with PwC Strategy& Schweiz and the information management firm inacta to identify the top 50 Crypto Valley companies based on CV Maps data. Strong capital base Companies qualifying for this crypto super-league must meet three criteria: Firstly, blockchain technology has to be part of the company’s core business, secondly, it must employ more than one person in Switzerland or Liechtenstein, and lastly, it should make some contribution to the blockchain ecosystem and the wider Crypto Valley community. There are three additional criteria, at least one of which must be fulfilled: Funding in excess of US$10 million, a valuation of more than U$10 million or the provision of at least 10 full-time positions in Switzerland or Liechtenstein. CV VC's report sheds light on the various sub-sectors of the industry, their market capitalization and their headcount. Some highlights at a glance: At the end of September 2018, CV Maps directory contained over 600 companies working with blockchain technology (directly, or as a service provider, such as specialized consultancies, law firms, blockchain organizations and academic institutions). According to CV Maps database, Blockchain companies employ around 3000 people in Switzerland. The Top 50 alone counts 443 employees. Most companies employ many more people abroad. The Top 50 companies together have a market capitalization of around US$ 44 billion, however the consolidated value of the sector overall can only be estimated, as many companies do not publish exact data. The Top 50 companies have a very strong capital base, especially compared to other startups. Many of them have funding in the tens or hundreds of millions. Five Blockchain Unicorns are either based in or have originated from the Crypto Valley: Bitmain, Cardano, Dfinity, Ethereum and Xapo. Crypto Valley contains a large subset of the blockchain industry, from health tech to data analytics to e-government. Two secondary areas feature in the top 50 list: the first is broker, trade & exchange and the second is platform & protocol. Each is represented by 11 companies. Other sub-sectors that include many companies are hardware & middleware as well as community, P2P & loyalty. In addition to CV Maps’ own databases, data used to compile the Top 50 was drawn from information provided by the companies themselves, from crypto exchanges, media reports and social media such as LinkedIn. Where no information was available, estimates were made and declared as such in the CV VC Report. Estimates of worth were rounded into four categories: $10 million, $25 million, $100 million and $1000 million ($1 billion). "The Top 50 report shows that Crypto Valley has retained its appeal as a location for blockchain companies from all sectors" said Ralf Glabischnig, founder and managing partner of information management firm inacta, which built the CV Maps database. The new information provided by CV Maps sheds light on the rapid growth rate of Crypto Valley. At the time of its April 2017 launch, the online directory contained 350 companies, just over half as many as there are today.
  3. As XRP is neither listed in the top or worst performing 15 tokens table, says basically everything about the quality of this survey / respondents answers.

  5. Also have a look at this tweet by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis on Oct 2: Very encouraging presentation (https://www.stlouisfed.org/dialogue-with-the-fed/blockchain) by St. Louis Fed economist David Andolfatto and Q&A session with Executive Vice President Julie L. Stackhouse where they also made a reference to https://www.treasurydirect.gov/
  6. SAP currently showcases TechEd conference in Las Vegas (Oct 2 - Oct 5). Should follow this: https://events.sap.com/teched-2018-usa/en/home https://news.sap.com/2018/10/sap-blockchain-integration-customer-flexibility-new-industry-consortia/ Generic extract: Industry Groups Apply Blockchain for Safety, Transparency and Efficiency Based on its comprehensive work with customers, SAP has formed two new industry consortium groups within the SAP Blockchain Consortium program: one for the pharmaceuticals and life sciences industries, and the other for agribusiness, consumer products and retail. The consortia bring SAP customers, partners, and other relevant players together to identify industry-spanning blockchain use cases, areas for cross-industry collaboration and further benefits of permissioned industry blockchain networks. Given the fact that they already had integrated Ripple in their SAP Payment Engine in 2016 ( https://news.sap.com/2016/07/atb-financial-sends-one-of-the-worlds-first-real-time-payments-from-canada-to-germany-using-blockchain-technology-supported-by-sap/ ), we likely can expect adoption of XRP / RippleNet in SAP's customer use cases at any given moment.
  7. Here's the "CPL200 - SAP S/4HANA and Blockchain Integration, 2017 Las Vegas" video presentation for above slides: https://events.sap.com/teched/en/session/33619 31:00 minute mark
  8. Exactly! I never understood why some Youtubers freak out about this selector "has SBI gone live, has SBI gone live?!". It has nothing to do with actual JPY transfers, it's simply just the display currency to which the values get converted to in the user interface..
  9. Wait for SAP and we potentially might have 400000 new partners ?
  10. Happy waiting. If you had migrated BTC into XRP two weeks ago, you would now have twice the money. And we didn't even get started..
  11. This is a nice presentation back from November 2015 on how Interledger works. Presented by Stefan Thomas and Evan Schwartz. Stefan Thomas was mentioning multiple hops already by then (around the 14 minute mark). The video/audio is unfortunately out of sync in the second half of the video:
