  1. Hi everyone, I'm joining Bob's study group. I'm writing a book to introduce Ripple and XRP in Japan now. Language: Japanese, English Timezone: Tokyo GMT+9 Twitter: GiantGox Blog: gtgox.com Discord: XRP community group in Japan I have spent several years to fight against scammers, who spread bad rumors about Ripple and XRP in Japan. It seems that it worked well at least in my country. However as more and more people are interested in cryptocurrency recently, more people started spreading FUD as well. So, I need more accurate information about XRP and Ripple now. I'm not sure how much I can contribute to the community, but I'll try to cooperate with everyone as much as I can.
  2. From this spring, almost all Japanese people start using J Coin instead of cash. And it uses Ripple. So, how do we make international payments?
  3. No, I don't have any insider information. They said that the users don't need to have bank accounts to use the smartphone app. It means that they use 2 different system for payments and settlement. Like this. And the smartphone app is same as what SBI Ripple Asia introduced on TV. So they obviously use Ripple. I have more information, but it's all written in Japanese.
  4. I'm also interested in "J Coin". https://www.ft.com/content/ca0b3892-a201-11e7-9e4f-7f5e6a7c98a2

  6. https://translate.google.co.jp/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fpr.fujitsu.com%2Fjp%2Fnews%2F2017%2F10%2F10-2.html&edit-text=&act=url Because this is a joint project between MUFG and Mizuho Bank and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation.
  7. As you know, SBI Ripple Asia demonstrated their Smartphone app on TV. https://youtu.be/vdPbJj2CSLI I've found the information on FSA's website as well. (p.24) http://www.fsa.go.jp/singi/kessai_kanmin/siryou/20171220/01.pdf It refers to a press release of Fujitsu, the biggest computer company in Japan. http://pr.fujitsu.com/jp/news/2017/10/10-2.html It says... The diagram indicates that the system integrates MUFG coin and RC-Cloud (Ripple). What do you think??? By the way, MUFG-coin will be launched this spring. https://ca.reuters.com/article/technologyNews/idCAKCN0Z02KE
  8. Nikkei https://www.nikkei.com/article/DGXMZO24535220S7A211C1EE9000/ [Google Translate]
  9. Exactly. If my expectations are correct, the price of XRP goes up regardless of whether XRP is used for remittance.
  10. I also expect that xRapid is ILP-enabled Ripple Stream. So it might have a function of XRP auto-bridging for FX.
  11. I guess that their global digital asset exchange would use XRP as the base currency and they'd use a solution like "Ripple Stream". In this diagram, connector1, connector2 and connector3 could be their exchanges. Because, by doing so, they can behave like a correspondent bank.
  12. Google Translate: "In addition to SBI virtual currency, we are working on creating another market. As soon as it is done, it (XRP Ledger) will be recognized."
