  1. Ripple progress is XRP process.... It’s all connected even if not 100% directly right now.
  2. Well Ripple announcement is newer... But I do think companies can work with both. Different corridors perhaps. Who knows.
  3. Very interesting considering: https://www.bitrates.com/news/p/nigeria-is-joining-the-blockchain-game-with-tempo-and-flutterwave “Nigeria Is Joining the Blockchain Game with Tempo and Flutterwave” “Our partnership with Tempo is a fantastic example of the kind of innovation Flutterwave is enabling on the Stellar blockchain technology to bring down remittance costs and connect Africa to the global economy.”

  5. While the bank will start by using xCurrent, Birla hopes to ultimately help them begin working with Ripple's xRapid platform as well, he said. "With PNC, the idea is to get a few corridors lit up with xCurrent … When they're ready to start talking about emerging markets, we'll introduce them to xRapid. We're working to get them started with xCurrent so it's not a completely new feature to move to xRapid," he explained.
  6. https://www.coindesk.com/us-banking-giant-pnc-becomes-latest-to-adopt-ripples-xcurrent/ American banking giant PNC has joined the growing number of financial institutions using payments products from blockchain startup Ripple. The bank's Treasury Management division will begin accepting cross-border transactions using the firm's xCurrent product, Ripple's senior vice president, Asheesh Birla, told CoinDesk Wednesday. One of the top-10 largest banks by assets held in the U.S., PNC has already successfully concluded a pilot phase and proof-of-concept for the payment rail, and will immediately begin using xCurrent in a production environment. For now, Treasury Management will only be accepting inbound transactions using the product.

    Cryptocurrency exchanges only need to register with the SEC if they trade in any digital assets deemed a security. I believe most/all of the exchanges are not... They are looking to be more registered than most. They are registered with FINCEN. I’m hopeful they’ll be good.
  11. https://ripple.com/insights/national-commercial-bank-of-saudi-arabia-joins-ripplenet/ NCB will be in production on RippleNet by the end of Q4 2018. https://www.finextra.com/newsarticle/32659/ripple-advances-in-saudi-arabia-and-japan “Saudi Arabia's National Commercial Bank has signed up with RippleNet, opening up remittance payment corridors between the Kingdom and US and Asian markets.” ”The agreement is the first struck between Ripple and a Saudi bank in the wake of a February agreement with the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority to create a pilot programme and sandbox for KSA banks to test out connections with Ripple for instant settlement of cross-border transfers.” ”For NCB, the second-largest bank in KSA, the connection to RippleNet will enable it to hook up with other financial institutions on the network, and open up new markets in North America and Asia, beginning with Singapore.”
  12. edit: See second part of tweet - not the mastercard part @BANKXRP “Apart from its current banking partners, which include the likes of HSBC and Santander, the firm will soon announce new partnerships with a number of other financial institutions.” “Tradeshift offers a cloud-based platform that connects more than 1.5 million companies globally.” ”Currently, he says, the Tradeshift platform can integrate with both Ripple blockchain payments and R3’s Corda.” Tradeshift’s finance partners already include HSBC, Santander, Citi and CreditEase. According to Lanng, at least five other banks will soon be onboarded to the platform, but these have not yet been publicly named.
