    Global cooperation in crypto regs coming to light

    Wyoming - “Wyoming has introduced a bill that aims to clarify the legal position of digital assets, as well as offer digital asset custody through banks” https://www.forbes.com/sites/darrynpollock/2019/01/18/wyoming-introduces-bill-offering-cryptocurrencies-legal-clarity-to-attract-blockchain-business/amp/?ss=crypto-blockchain&utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=social&utm_content=2087367833&utm_campaign=sprinklrForbesCrypto&__twitter_impression=true
  2. I’m suggesting this possibility based on the timing of all the regs coming through at similar times...

    Global cooperation in crypto regs coming to light

    BIS, G20, IMF, IOSCO. All of these are lead by central banks and the countries themselves so I'm not sure there's much difference. It's hard to saw which is leading the charge.

    Earn 5% on XRP on Uphold!

    If it’s insured - verifiably, legitimately, completely insured - this would be very interesting. I doubt this is the case, therefore can’t risk leaving XRP sitting on an exchange no matter how much I trust uphold.

    Mercury FX Announcement Page

    It could also all have gone through coinfield (unbacked speculation that they are working with Ripple. Just their huge promotion of XRP as a base and promoting XRP so mich in their communications). edit: nm, they don’t have MXN yet.

    Given the way ILP works, it could be split into multiple transactions.

    Mastercard’s Homesend

    “Homesend’s quite into tokenization and potentially digital assets as well. Both of those homesend would be able to support, whether that be sending or receiving. Much the same as blockchain. Homesend’s done quite a lot of experiments with Ripple as well... in the homesend and mastercard realm. This wouldn’t be competition to what we’re doing with banks...” Asssahhhhhh!

    Terrapay, Ripple and Africa

    “Blockchain is definitely something we are interested in. We are looking at it, we are testing it also with Ripple. Our test is still a test. We are understanding where we can use the efficiency with blockchain and we also have different investment, smaller investments in different startup companies, different innovative companies so that is going to continue to happen. We don't see a big change in our business model yet but we will continue to be investing in, continuing investment relations.” ...does that translate differently to you than it does to me? “Interested in... looking at it... testing it also with Ripple I don’t have evidence for many of my posts or I would post it. In this case, it’s been a long time since I looked into Terrapay and mixed them up with Transpay. I’ll continue to point out the connections I find... and yes, I like likes :p At .6 likes per post, your content must be much more valuable... indeed.

    Sorry, mistake here. Transfast and transpay are related... not terrapay

    Evidence of XRapid at Work

    Thanks! I thought this would get moved from the main thread if I posted it to XRPChat 😉 Appreciate you putting it here too. Lately anything speculative that I post gets moved.
  20. Perhaps it will come. This is probably just a first step. I’m sure Ripple wouldn’t have settled with R3 and given them some large amount of XRP for just this.
  21. According to the demo, company a is requesting to be paid in XRP. Company B is paying in XRP. The exchange rate is only calculated to determine how much XRP company B will pay to company A. The is no actual fiat/xrp exchange.
  22. Repeating myself but why is this important unless/until fiat bridging is built in... Which I hope will come
  23. Time will tell, but their video only shows that company A can request to be paid by company B using XRP. B can then pay this using XRP. As it stands from the demo, there is no exchange to fiat. Until this exist, I don't know that anyone will use it.
  24. I watched the demo. Hopefully this is the start of some larger integration. According to the demo, Settler allows the company being paid to request payment in XRP that would be paid in XRP by the payer. XRP makes sense as a bridge currency. Their demo doesn't show any actual bridging and I doubt companies will want to be paid in XRP. Big news but I'm hoping there's more along the way to make it work like xRapid.
