News is swelling a bit about a Bakkt application to convert digital assets at Starbucks-payments and they will market it significantly https://abacusjournal.com/bakkt-behind-the-pending-launch-faced-with-an-unexpected-delay-bakkt-prepares-massive-roll-out-and-marketing-blitz/ About a year ago, the executive chairman of Starbucks mentioned that cryptocurrencies are coming, yet ruling out bitcoin https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/26/starbucks-schultz-a-digital-currency-is-coming-but-wont-be-bitcoin.html In august, Starbucks mentioned that paying directly with assets like bitcoin will not be the case, but there will be an exchange step in between. http://fortune.com/2018/08/06/starbucks-accepting-bitcoin/ Now, obviously Bitcoin transaction costs are at most moments too expensive and the involved speed too slow to make it usable to pay a cup of coffee. Bakkt could off course offer an app with which you can "upload some value in Bitcoin to a Starbucks wallet" yet convert it to USD at that very moment, but that's zero innovative and in essence creating consumer-mini-nostro-USD accounts at retailer businesses. As Bakkt is handling things carefully and will have done their homework, my take is that Bakkt will offer some form of XRP-integration as it's basically the only liquid coin with enough speed and low transaction costs enabling instant conversions (enabling sort of an xRapid for retail payments). PS. With the additional 51% attack risks of Proof-of-Work coins like Bitcoin I still find it odd that financial products like futures and ETF's are requested for approval for bitcoin only and similar products for XRP are not being applied for approval. But I guess that's food for another topic.
