  1. The Very Beginning Shift/Shift Payments Since 2014, Ripple has been experimenting on multiple projects developing a debit card that would allow owners to easily spend their digital currencies. It first began as a joint effort along side Shift Payments to create the "Shift Card". Which the project was focused on https://ripple.com/insights/a-debit-card-powered-by-ripple/ The prototype card was integrated with both Coinbase and Ripple accounts at one point with the partners wanting to integrate the card with loyalty point programs and regular bank accounts in the future. Ripple was planned to be used for the settlement protocol for payment between fiat currencies, digital currencies, mobile minutes, etc. And in further innovation, https://techcrunch.com/2014/08/12/shift-is-developing-a-debit-card-that-lets-you-spend-digital-currency-loyalty-points-and-regular-money/ It would later be released that Shift Payments, now Shift, was introducing a VISA backed Bitcoin debit card. Suggesting the probability Ripple had been introduced to VISA long ago.... https://techcrunch.com/2015/11/20/coinbase-partners-with-shift-payments-to-issue-bitcoin-debit-card/ Unfortunately nothing came from it and the test wallets they used for the pilots have become dormant for several years. (although the main wallet has 375k XRP just sitting there) https://bithomp.com/explorer/rKbtT6j1JGjFnwkUp2Na1W8XE5Z79VsMYi https://bithomp.com/explorer/rpfFnyaChjzB8RNfT6VDYioFWfjghYXnvb Shift appears to have moved on but a possible explanation as to why nothing arose from it might be how cryptocurrencies were not favorably perceived in 2014. However one of the co-founders of Shift, Meg Nakamura added that https://techcrunch.com/2014/08/12/shift-is-developing-a-debit-card-that-lets-you-spend-digital-currency-loyalty-points-and-regular-money/ Whether they ever use Ripple or not in the future is up for debate but one of Shift's co-founders was Gregg Kidd, the chief risk officer at Ripple during the time. Interesting enough both founded Hard + Yaka, a fund that makes early round investments in exchange space startups. Previous investments? Global ID, Gatehub, Ripple, Coinbase, Shift, Bitso (expect XRPL to run thru it), ShapeShift and to our next topic of conversation.....Marqeta. http://hardyaka.com/ Marqeta Marqeta is an open API payment card issuing platform that has been enabling businesses to process credit and debit card payments. Marqeta has been establishing itself as a big company that has attracted notable clients and investors to utilize it's technology. Facebook and Oink are example of clients while this past July, VISA made a strategic investment in the company and formed a partnership to drive further innovations in commercial and consumer payments globally. https://techcrunch.com/2017/07/26/visa-marqeta-25m/ http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20170726005359/en/Visa-Marqeta-Form-Global-Partnership-Drive-New https://www.pymnts.com/news/partnerships-acquisitions/2017/visa-and-marqeta-partner-to-transform-global-card-issuance/ https://techcrunch.com/2013/05/16/powering-the-facebook-card-marqeta-raises-14m-from-greylock-israel-to-recreate-the-starbucks-loyalty-card-for-merchants/ Marqeta is compatible with the Discover, MasterCard, and VISA networks. https://www.marqeta.com/api/docs/VhypzxwAANwA_Vgx/cards The CEO of Marqeta, Jason Gardner, has been very vocal and supportive of blockchain technology and it's possible applications. adding, It was also revealed in January 2016 that Marqeta had been working with Ripple on a defunct debit card product that would allow users to spend cryptocurrencies at traditional points of sale. https://www.coindesk.com/marqeta-ceo-bitcoin-blockchain-tech/ With the test wallets to prove this collaboration, https://bithomp.com/explorer/rwEFnxs7GQsHXBG9ARZNYcmBkZc81zphMC https://bithomp.com/explorer/rwYx6Mp1n8yMbGN9K4MkHsSNvibK4MPjQF (being really active last year and even doing fiat exchanges between USD and JPY) Only time will tell where this collaboration will lead to but it's safe to say that Ripple has really positioned itself well in regards to VISA and Mastercard. And one other interesting development has been Marqeta's new partnership with Ali Pay. https://www.finextra.com/pressarticle/71286/alipay-joins-with-marqeta-for-us-payments-play https://paymentweek.com/2017-10-27-alipay-marqeta-team-alipays-payment-processing-ambition/ http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20171020005664/en/Alipay-Taps-Marqeta-Expedite-Payment-Acceptance-Retail One notable thing did occur (and is accelerating as we speak) this past March, Ripple introduced Payments Channels into the RCL/XRPL and ILP. Thus allowing the XRP Ledger to scale, https://ripple.com/insights/ripple-continues-to-bring-internet-of-value-to-life-new-features-increase-transaction-throughput-to-same-level-as-visa/ https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/ripple-claims-transaction-thoroughput-now/ The network has now scaled enough to sustain the amount of transactions the VISA network sustains. One last note, https://www.finextra.com/newsarticle/31227/wirex-and-sbi-holdings-team-on-japan-cryptocurrency-payments-card AirWallex Ripple partners with ties to major credit card issuers don't end there. AirWallex is an international payments startup that is based in Australia that in October, it's partnership with Ripple became publicly disclosed. https://ripple.com/ripple_press/ripples-blockchain-network-now-100-strong/ This past May, AirWallex held a Series A Round in which it raised $13 million dollars in funds for the company. These investors included MasterCard, Gobi Ventures/Partners which is one of Alibaba's investment managers, and Tencent leading the investment round. Tencent's WeChat has roughly 980 million monthly users, with users sending about $1.2 trillion in mobile payments in 2016. Along with mobile payments in China, Tencent wants to expand WeChat Pay usage to other regions including South Africa, Philippines, and Malaysia. https://bankinnovation.net/2017/04/alipay-wechat-processed-3-trillion-in-2016/ http://news.abs-cbn.com/business/11/22/17/wechat-pay-launches-in-philippines-with-asia-united-bank http://www.marketing-interactive.com/tencent-confirms-plans-to-launch-wechat-pay-in-malaysia/ http://blog.wechat.com/2015/11/25/south-africa-launches-wechat-wallet-the-first-country-officially-outside-china/ And there is one more region that AirWallex is targeting thru a formation of a partnership this past week, Europe. On December 1, AirWallex announced a partnership with Railsbank to enable AirWallex also became Railsbank's Airwallex’s VP of Europe Expansion, Michael Stachowiak speaking on the partnership shared, https://www.finextra.com/pressarticle/71788/airwallex-joins-railsbank-platform https://www.pymnts.com/news/b2b-payments/2017/airwallex-railsbank-international-payments-partnership/ Along with it's partnership with AirWallex, the previous day Railsbank was one of eleven companies to be chosen by MasterCard to be included in it's Start Path program. With Railsbank being chosen for it's ability to give companies access to global banking networks thru APIs. https://www.finextra.com/pressarticle/71779/latest-mastercard-start-path-program-includes-blockchain-digital-identity-and-healthcare-fintechs Want to know what happened on November 30? (same day of Railsbank and MasterCard's annoucement) The European Central Bank hosted a digital transformation conference that Ripple was invited to. https://www.ecb.europa.eu/pub/conferences/shared/pdf/20171130_digital_transformation_conf/Conference_brochure_20171130.pdf A panel which consisted of Banca Sella, the Central Bank of Netherlands, PayPal, and Ripple was held to speak on the disruptive potential of fintech innovations for the retail payments ecosystem. Want to know what happened on December 1? (same day as AirWallex and Railsbank's partnership) Brad gave us a nice tweet The VISA and MasterCard connections are there and more subtle Alibaba and Tencent connections to Ripple are surfacing. There's a lot of money between Europe and China in e-retail.............

  2. First of the ‘big five’ banks to move from Visa as Mastercard seeks to grow in the UK Santander will become the first of the UK’s ‘big five’ high street banks to issue debit cards through Mastercard from next year, marking a major step in the payments group’s efforts to fight Visa’s dominance in the sector. Santander UK, which has more than 9m debit cards in issue — almost 10 per cent of the UK total — will begin moving customers to Mastercard as their existing cards expire from the first quarter of 2019. Mark Barnett, Mastercard divisional president for the UK, said the deal would give it “real scale in the UK debit card market”, and was “proof that Mastercard’s debit card solutions offer all the flexibility, security and convenience banks and their cardholders require in today’s digital age”. More than 95 per cent of debit cards in the UK run on Visa’s network, but Mastercard has signed up several smaller banks since Visa’s European arm was bought out by Visa Inc in 2016. This was previously owned by a co-operative of European banks, with the value of each bank’s stake dependent on the volume of transactions they handled. Analysts warned at the time of the €21bn deal that it could allow Mastercard to win back some of the business that had previously been tied to its rival. TSB — which has around 4.5 per cent of the debit card market — is due to move its debit card portfolio to Mastercard later in the year which, with the Santander agreement, is expected to bring Mastercard’s market share close to 20 per cent. Matt Hall, Santander UK director of banking and unsecured credit, said the partnership “will enable us to give better payment solutions to our customers and look forward to rolling out the new cards from next year”. Mastercard’s push into the UK follows last year’s £700m acquisition of Vocalink, which builds real-time payments infrastructure, from a consortium of British banks. Vocalink is aiming to launch a separate service this year allowing customers to pay for online purchases directly from their current accounts, cutting out the need to use a debit card. The company has signed up several banks that issue cards through Visa — including Barclays and HSBC — to join the programme. https://www.ft.com/content/7d6f5e48-4d53-11e8-8a8e-22951a2d8493?segmentid=acee4131-99c2-09d3-a635-873e61754ec6
  3. https://seekingalpha.com/news/3340073-mastercard-keeps-options-open-cryptos?ifp=0 Looks like Mastercard are keeping their options open on Cryptocurrencies but will only bet involved with one which is utilised by a Central Bank... I wonder if Ripple will be a part of this...
  4. A response from Mastercard on if they plan to use ripple in the future.
  5. The momentum behind XRP and Ripple has quickly built into the size of a freight train. I make a good-faith attempt to cover all the news items of the last seven days, including The AMA (Ask Me Anything) session that David Schwartz held on Reddit. The other news items are extensive as well, including updates to xRapid customers, general Ripple technology adoption, and community updates. In addition, throw in two interviews with Ripple executives and you have a very busy week indeed. Hope you enjoy the read - please leave any feedback below. Also, feel free to share my blog with a friend or family member, or share it on any other forum or platform - and thank you for doing so!

  6. Just leaving this here, maybe @Hodor or @mars75 can say more When moon? Edit: Forgot the sauce: http://www.fleetcor.com/our_business-lp.htm
  7. I have got a brain wave. What if Ripple can replace VISA/MasterCard/Amex as the next payment gateway. And the 100+ partner banks can issue cards powered by the ripple net using the Xrapid to facilitate payments for point of sale. Online payments in the future. Banks and FI’s will only need to provide new debit cards and credit cards powered by Ripple and settle payments instantly on the ripple net which is not limited with borders or currency conversion limitations. With the added advantage of instant settlement. Is it possible ripple can eat into the existing infrastructure of visa/MasterCard. Also is it possible ripple might become the new gold standard. Technically this is all possible provided the banks can have enough faith on the ripple net when compared to the visa/MasterCard channels. What are your thoughts. And is ripple looking into doing this in the near future. Also payments thru ripple can also use Codius to convert transaction into smart installments considering approved limits on individual credit scores.
  8. https://developer.mastercard.com/product/mastercard-blockchain This could certainly be interesting and a possible "good enough" rebuttal for why other blockchains or coins will be irrelevant?
  9. Hello Everyone, This article has to be the most interesting (Speculative) Ripple (XRP) articles I have read. I had to join XRP chat and share it. https://keepingstock.net/opinion-ripples-price-with-visa-or-mastercard-integration-6e723f7936d5
  10. I feel that news is coming from stellar regarding a new major partnership is becoming imminent. I am tempted to put a majority of my investment in xlm for the short term. The new validators, past IBM partnerships with visa, and such a cheap price, I am very hopeful for the coming months. Thoughts?
  11. Browsing through the agenda of the comming days, all big payment players seem to be there (Apple, Alipay, Visa, Mastercard, Paypal, etc.) as also several supportive partners that passed on this forum before. I saw an interpretation on twitter connecting Stellar to Paypal because of this agenda, but that seems a too easy / pump conclusion as they are (actualy 2x) indeed together in a timeslot, but together with other participants in a paneldiscussion and presentation queue. But still, I can imagine that statements might influence the markets. Any thoughts? I don't see Rippe there.. but as too much expectations did not work out the last time, maybe this time the exact opposite ?? https://files.money2020.com/public/jAVEIl5/xOZcTGNvex.pdf?_ga=2.13394359.1460367270.1508609453-904291530.1498331769
  12. Hi What is the best crypto (visa) debit card out there in terms of best value for money with fees, etc, ? I am looking at the Bitstamp debit card and it does look pricey wit their fees. I want to exchange my ripple for USD fiat. Deciding on whether to get a debit card or just use international transfer. Support from Bitstamp, Kraken, Gatehub are all poor and your lucky to hear back anytime soon. So I cannot wait all week or weeks for answers. How long does a international transfer usually take? Can't find this info on Bitstamp or Kraken. And if I got their debit card, I assume I would be able to transfer USD from their card to my existing bank card or bank account. After all, this is the reason why I would get their card in the first place. Thanks

  14. Could Ripple eventually cut Mastercard and Visa out of the consumer-merchant purchasing process (assume Joe bought a hat from Amazon using his credit card)? Currently, Mastercard and Visa facilitate payment, they dont extend credit (the bank does). If both the bank and the merchant are using the Ripple Network, why would they need Mastercard/Visa anymore? What am I missing? Thanks
