    RikkiTikki reacted to Babelly in Western union offers to buy moneygram   
    Why would ODL, which hasn't been live for even a year yet, correct 10 years of mistakes? 
     
    Western Union revenue for the quarter ending March 31, 2020 was $1.190B, a 10.99% decline year-over-year.
    Western Union revenue for the twelve months ending March 31, 2020 was $5.145B, a 7.09% decline year-over-year.
    Western Union annual revenue for 2019 was $5.292B, a 5.33% decline from 2018.
    Western Union annual revenue for 2018 was $5.59B, a 1.19% increase from 2017.
    Western Union annual revenue for 2017 was $5.524B, a 1.87% increase from 2016.

    RikkiTikki got a reaction from Cesar1810 in India lifts Crypto exchange Ban   
    In my line of work I converse with a lot of my Indian colleagues in Hyderabad and if this is true this is a good thing as quite a few of them told me they had money invested in crypto from days prior too the ban that was just sitting there waiting for the government to do something.  That is why I whole hardly believe regulations is the Achilles heel in the states also.  If things pick up in India this should be a barometer to measure things by as to what will happen Once the regulators here in the states get their heads out their a$$!

    RikkiTikki got a reaction from damascus1986 in Accenture still promotes Ripple   
    One thing highlighted "As a means to extend SWIFT!"  I for one still believe there will be some type of SWIFT Ripple collaboration.  With Ripple making it much easier for customers to go from XCurrent to Xrapid the pace steps up for more and more SWIFT customers to abandon swift totally in lieu of Xcurrent which would more readily make their move to ODL more seamless and transparent.  A piece of the pie is better than no pie and I think SWIFT is slowly seeing the writing on the wall,  Their customers are seeing the benefits of ODL and they are starting to demand it.  They can either take the time an develop a solution which in this scenario( They loose customers to Ripple because they have a proven working solution already in play, They risk not being able to bring the same value to the table as Ripple's ODL and they loose customer due to that.)  SWIFT is at a crossroads  ODL is something they don't offer and to remain relevant they will need to either develop a solution that works(which I think this is clearly off the table now considering Ripples progress) or (They need to collaborate with a partner that offers a proven ODL solution)  Hello----> Yes---> Who's there---->SWIFT----> Can Ripple come out and play a bit??

    RikkiTikki reacted to LetHerRip in MoneyGram and Uber Launch Partnership   
    What are you talking about, this has nothing to do with XRP. Moneygram doesn't use XRP or Ripplenet in this partnership or over 95% of their remittances. They are only trailing XRP usage in a tiny percentage of volume (around 10%) in one corridor only (Mexican Peso).

         "This is what I wanted to tell them is that, up until now, we have been focusing only on remittance and tying up with banks or money transfer brokers or agents because they wanted to — their mission was to create revolution in international remittance. But large trading firms have bases around the world, and that’s probably true with all the multinationals. Why don’t you move the money around there? You don’t have to work with just the finance sector. You can invite the multinational network into Ripple, and you can accelerate commercialization."
            Yoshitaka Kitao (CEO of SBI Holdings)
    Damn!!! Yoshitaka Kitao just told Ripple. I'm not upset about it, I like it. I would hope and believe that the folks at ripple would be thinking "I wish I had thought of that." Head down, smile, and a new mission.
