Xrphunter's Achievements

  1. Trezor Model T, firmware update 2.1.0 The main news for Model T is definitely the coin listings. One of the biggest and best-known projects — Ripple — is now available in the Trezor Wallet interface, and you can store, send, and receive Ripple by using nothing but the Wallet. Ripple is currently available only in the Beta Wallet. https://blog.trezor.io/latest-updates-bring-new-architecture-to-trezor-one-and-ripple-support-to-model-t-3873ed3693c1?gi=d19cc9ab2bee
  2. Now what? The hype is gone and we can go back to sleep now
  3. “Ripple is a perfect partner for BitGo since our mission is to make digital assets like XRP usable for business. BitGo’s sweet spot is providing businesses the tools they need to integrate digital assets into their existing financial systems securely and at scale. We process over $1 Billion in transactions per month and our customers include the biggest digital currency exchanges and applications in the world.” https://www.crowdfundinsider.com/2019/02/144627-bitgo-selected-by-ripple-to-provide-multi-signature-security-advanced-treasury-management-additional-enterprise-functionality-for-xrp/
  4. ChainFront, an API-as-a-Service company that removes the complexity of using, building, and managing blockchain wallets while maintaining enterprise-grade security, today announced the launch of Ripple and Ethereum integration to the ChainFront API platform. Now, developers creating applications built on the Ethereum or XRP Ledger blockchains can eliminate the need for end-users to manage their own security and bank. https://www.marketwatch.com/press-release/chainfront-announces-support-for-ripple-and-ethereum-2019-02-15?siteid=nbkh
  5. Version 1.2.0 also lowers the threshold for network participants involved in signing transactions. The MultiSignReserve amendment allows owners of signer lists for authorization method Multisign to participate with a reserve of just 5 XRP, down from the previous 15–50 XRP. https://www.coindesk.com/latest-xrp-ledger-release-boosts-censorship-resistance-and-more
  6. SendFriend, the next-generation remittance service and currently, the smartest way to send money to the Philippines, today announced it has raised $1.7M in total capital to better enable Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) to securely transfer USD to PHP at the lowest rate available. The funding comes from MIT Media Lab, Barclays, the Mastercard Foundation, Ripple, Techstars, Mahindra Finance, 2020 Ventures, and 8 Decimal Capital. More than $45 billion in fees on remittance services, which often take 3-5 days, was spent last year by the millions of migrants in the U.S. who send home more than $650 billion in remittances. SendFriend will launch as the only option for OFWs to securely and reliably send money internationally with fees that are 65% lower than the industry average as it replaces the frictions and fees of the banking system with one seamless, ultra low cost experience to send money globally. Through a partnership with blockchain company Ripple, SendFriend leverages xRapid to create a seamless money transfer experience. XRP is used as a liquidity vehicle for cross-border payments, enabling SendFriend to circumvent the corresponding banking system and convert USD to XRP to PHP in a matter of seconds. https://www.marketwatch.com/press-release/sendfriend-next-generation-remittance-company-announces-17m-in-capital-from-8-decimal-capital-techstars-2020-ventures-barclays-mit-media-lab-2019-02-11?siteid=nbkh
  7. Ripple has expanded the group of partners within its University Blockchain Research Initiative (UBRI). This global initiative, which launched in June 2018, now supports 29 schools to further accelerate academic research, technical development and innovation in blockchain, cryptocurrency and digital payments. Since its launch, UBRI has helped foster increasing levels of interest and academic activity by leading faculty, post-doctoral and graduate students at many of the world’s top universities. The new cohort of partners includes a broader and even more global selection of top-tier university and college partners, representing a wide variety of academic disciplines. New UBRI partners include: Carnegie Mellon University Cornell University Duke University Georgetown University University of Kansas University of Michigan Morgan State University National University of Singapore Northeastern University University of Sao Paulo Institute for Fintech Research, Tsinghua University https://ripple.com/insights/tragic-hero/university-blockchain-research-initiative-expands-global-footprint-with-11-new-partners/
  8. I like this note: Side note: In fact, this is a lesser-known place XRP shines, compared to other blockchains. You know, those annoying 20 XRP (the account minimum reserve) that is required to create an account, and that you can never have back unless a vote among the nodes lowers the reserve, it is, in fact, helpful in keeping the ledger pretty clean (along with destination tags). There are far fewer accounts, making reuse of accounts preferable to creating new ones. https://www.forbes.com/sites/thomassilkjaer/2019/02/05/blockchain-and-graphs-pattern-detection-and-fraud-investigation/#3f066114a6f5
