    MUFG coin integrates Ripple?

    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?

    MUFG coin integrates Ripple?

    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.

    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.
  6. 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

    SBI’s Impact on XRP

    Exactly. If my expectations are correct, the price of XRP goes up regardless of whether XRP is used for remittance.

    SBI’s Impact on XRP

    I also expect that xRapid is ILP-enabled Ripple Stream. So it might have a function of XRP auto-bridging for FX.

    SBI’s Impact on XRP

    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.

    SBI’s Impact on XRP

    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."
  13. xCurrent doesn't connect banks directly. It uses ILP connectors such as liquidity providers according to Ripple Labs. So this is my understanding. But this model doesn't have a key currency. It means that connector1 has to support all currency pairs all over the world. So XRP can be the best answer to the problem. The xrp model can support all currency pairs in the world and it doesn't have to depend on a big bank. Bank Z model cannot solve the problem of high payment fees. How do you realize "micropayment" by using these methods other than XRP?
