  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.

  7. Hello All. I have recently been out of the loop with Ripple and wanted to see how much i had on my desktop wallet. When i signed on it showed that the wallet is no longer available and removed from my desktop. I went through the whole process of signing up on gatehub and w/e but, when i tried to transition my previous wallet with me secret key I don't think i was correct in writing it down. Is there anyway to reach out to support to retrieve my funds from the ledger by proving my ownership? If not, seems I'm a few thousand. Thanks!

  11. Hello! I'm Claire Arthurs Kart (@clairearthurs), the new 'Head of Community' at Ripple and wanted to introduce myself to the community on XRPChat. I joined Ripple last week and am still getting my feet wet, but I look forward to getting to know everyone and hearing your ideas for how we can build a strong community together. I've been investing in crypto and reading deeply since 2013. Ripple, XRP and XRP Ledger enthusiasts have built a really strong community already, and I admire the passion, intelligence and thoughtfulness of the conversation happening across Twitter, Reddit, XRPChat etc. I became interested in crypto and blockchain technology while living in rural India and seeing first hand the negative effects of financial exclusion and outdated financial systems on the everyday lives of people. Building a more financially inclusive future that allows broader groups of people to participate in a formalized economy is why I joined Ripple and why I believe in the power of the technology. Enough for now - can't wait to meet and chat with you all!

  13. What is CasinCoin (CSC)? Taken from CSC’s official website (CasinoCoin.org) , CasinoCoin is: “An open source, peer-to-peer, cryptocurrency specifically designed for the regulated online gambling industry.” CSC are in partnership with the Isle of Man government and have offices in both Malta and the Isle of Man. What are the problems facing the regulated gambling industry. For the operator –compliance with regulatory headaches/legislation such as Know Your Customer and the Anti Money Laundering regulations. For example, William Hill – one of the UK’s largest licenced operators were fined £6.2m in February 2018, by the Gambling Commission for lax controls. In June 2018, 32 Red, a licensed British operator, were fined £2m for failing to protect a problem gambler. Secondly, for the player - slow transactions typical of the modern day banking world. Players moving fiat from bank account to operator and than back to bank account and onto another operator can take several days. Finally, both the operator and player can face lengthy delay whilst ID checks are made and documents verified How does CSC solve these problems? The centerpiece of CSC’s solution is the BRM – the Bank Roll Manager . This is an App that has will allow the users to seamlessly transfer CSC between the operator, the player’s wallet and onto another operator in seconds whilst also allowing completion of the KYC checks. CSC have partnered with Jumio, who are responsible for verifying the ID for Coinbase users. Players take a photo of their ID, upload it to the BRM. Jumio then verify the ID, and the player is all set to play at ANY of the operators registered in the BRM, with NO FURTHER SEPARATE ID CHECKS and re-verification. This is a massive win for the operator as they have now effectively outsourced a key element of their regulatory compliance requirements. So…no more fines. Using a modified code of Ripple, millions of CSC can be transacted in under 3 seconds. So…no more waiting on bank clearing timescales with a transaction cost of less than a penny. What about the team behind CSC? Who are they? This for me is where CSC really shines. The guy at the top is John Cadwell – Director of Advocacy, whose previous position include Editor in Chief for Pokernews.com and had a senior marketing role for Poker Stars. Ashish Tawakley – Chief Commerical Officer – ex Betfair ( who are in partnership with Paddy Power, a leading UK licensed operator.) Duncan Cameron - Technical Director - Duncan managed the building and launch of the PokerStars Mobile App – PS Mobile – which was responsible for the company receiving eGaming Review’s ‘Mobile Operator of the Year’ award. The advisory board reads like a who’s who of the gambling industry, with names such as: Lydia Barbera – “Head of Innovation” at Microgaming. based in the Isle of Man. Lydia was recently voted one of the ten most influential women in the online gaming industry. Microgaming developed the world’s first true online casino software in 1994 and the first mobile casino software in 2004. Microgaming is also the supplier of more than 700 world leading gaming brands such as Bet365, LeoVegas, 188 bet and Casumo. Draftkings Jeffrey Haas – Chief International Officer for Draft Kings, who are a billion dollar company. Kindred Group Britt Boeskov - Kindred Group have 1.5 million players in the gamining/gambling industry. Gamesys Lee Fenton – CEO. Gamesys have over 25 million players, 1000 employees, with some of the brands being Jackpot Joy, Virgin Games and Virgin Casino So, what about landbased Casinos? CSC were approached earlier this year by a Casino supplier to the Las Vegas Casinos. John Cadwell, of the CasinoCoin foundation was in Vegas recently in discussions surrounding this. Examples of CSC use in landbased Casinos could be as follows: Administration system for all bets CSC could integrate with the scan devices on slots Poker chips with CSC integrated How will the player go about converting their fiat into CSC? This is all done within the BRM. The player buys CSC from the operator who has their own supply of CSC bought from an exchange. So, a player will always deposit in CSC, gamble in CSC, win in CSC and withdraw in CSC. Would the volatility of the price of CSC be an issue? "There is no conversion happening on the operator platform. They could do that, it just wouldn’t make much sense. Some Casinos already using some tokenized system. Meaning you deposit 100USD, you get 100 tokens and a spin costs you x tokens or you place tokens on a table. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter which currency you gamble in. It only comes to play when cashing in and cashing out. The operator needs to have a bankroll in CSC. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to cash you out. Taking the risk of not having it and buying it on the market if you need it would be a risk. It’s the same for current casinos allowing you to gamble in crypto. They need to have a bankroll. Some might not have it and you would never know till someone wins big.” (Credit to Daniel Keller from the CSC Foundation who explains this better than I ever could) Can you give me a brief history of CSC? CasinoCoin started in 2013, and was taken over in August 2017 by Double C Foundation. A coin swap was undertaken increasing the supply from 40 million to 40 billion. What exchanges is CSC listed on? Right now, STEX, Nlexch and NUEX. CSC are in discussions with major exchanges, and with Binance being just down the road in Malta, this is a distinct possibility. CSC did not do an ICO and the Foundation is a Not For Profit Organisation ( Hence do not have hundreds of thousands at their disposal necessary for a major listing fee) Negotiations are ongoing with major exchanges and an announcement is likely to come soon. Also note, that the operators will have to buy their CSC direct from the exchanges like every one else, and not direct from the Foundation. Why have I not heard of CSC before? Mainly because CSC are purely focused on developing a working product and building the relationships with operators/partners. The Foundation have a ‘zero hype” policy and will only make an announcement when they have something to announce. No marketing has yet been undertaken and the great thing is with CSC, once the marketing switch is flipped, the operators CSC have partnered up with, will also be doing their own marketing to their customer base. Where are CSC up to right now? The tech has been developed, i.e the BRM, and this is with the Maltese Gaming Authority, pending approval following the sandbox testing. (The BRM is ready for testing. The operator has submitted the application. Just waiting on the MGA.) For the sandbox testing, CSC have partnered with an as yet unnamed operator. Additionally, it is worthy of note that the sandbox testing was most likely delayed due to Malta progressing with legislation written specifically for Crypto. The Malta Digital Innovation Authority, should oversee all crypto related items for the government. CSC wallets are available for download for Windows, OSX and Linux. The CSC team are also currently working on nano ledger integration. What’s the global market size of the gambling industry? Total gambling industry revenues are predicted to be 635 Billion USD in 2022. Total gaming industry revenue is predicted to be 128 billion USD in 2020 CSC in a nutshell CSC is a payment solution for the online (and potentially landbased) gambling industry powered by a modified version of the Ripple code. CSC are in partnership with an as yet unnamed operator. Price will be driven primarily by use and utility with speculation being secondary. CasinoCoin has a working product ready for release. CSC have close connections with the gambling industry with ex high ranking individuals from Poker Stars. CasinoCoin has a billionaire behind it. Douglas Barrowman : https://www.knoxprivateoffice.com / Everything the CSC team does is about the adoption of the CasinoCoin. I hope someone finds the potential of this project as exciting as I do. Thanks for reading if you made it this far… Source : https://thebitcoin.pub/t/csc-xrp-fork-the-future-of-gambling-powered-by-modified-ripple-code/45422

  15. https://ethereumworldnews.com/demand-for-ripple-inc-solutions-simply-too-high-in-asia-pacific/amp/ In a post by Ripple Inc’s official Twitter handle, the cryptocurrency company revealed that there is an increasing demand for its remittance solutions. However, the existing services cannot cover this ultra high demand. Ripple Inc tweeted saying “Demand in APAC for fast, affordable cross-border remittances are growing, but existing services can’t keep up.” This statement was made at the Ripple Inc Regional event in Bangkok. Malaysian Bank, CIMB previously partnered with Western Union to help their customer send money to their families in other parts of the world. However, Thomas Kiong, Senior Managing Director of Group Treasury Sales and FX at the bank admitted that the economics of the partnership favored Western Union more. He revealed that the bank did 80 percent of the work but only got 20 percent of the reward.

  17. The Current Scenario of Payment Networks Today’s global payment system fails to address the currently siloed payments networks lacking efficient inter-connectivity to serve the needs of today’s customers. A few pain points in the subsisting network – limited transparency, low speed, and high cost- stem from the absence of a single, global payments network. These all points result in moving businesses and consumers away from banks towards Fintech providers. Nonetheless, the latter is much adequate and efficient in meeting consumers’ needs. What opportunities does Ripple for Banks offer? RippleNet intends to deliver a single, frictionless platform for cross-border payments. It’s is a single, global network of banks used to conduct payments using its distributed financial technology; providing a real-time messaging clearing and settlement of transactions. RippleNet forms of a decentralized network based on the term between Ripple and its network participants. Both utilize the same technology and stick to a defined set of payments standards and rules. By adopting the technology of RippleNet, banks get robust connectivity, standardized technology, and necessary data attachments with each transaction. It’s the Ripple’s distributed financial technology that outruns today’s complex infrastructure by lowering costs, expediting processing, and providing end-to-end visibility in payment timing, fees, and delivery. RippleNet’s ecosystem of participants is categorized into two groups; network users (corporates, consumers, and others) and network members (payment providers and banks).

  19. Today, the global economy and the digital world are growing rapidly. Because of that various disruptions are happening in these two domains, causing businesses and traditional institutions to change the way they operate. And, now the issue that is all the rage and on the brink of disruption is traditional payments solutions. They are soon to be replaced by virtual payment solutions. Governed by cryptography, the decentralized, distributed ledger technologies like Blockchain is offering numerous prominent advantages over fiat currency and traditional payment systems. Why are we focusing on virtual payment solutions today? It’s because of Ripple, representing the next-gen of blockchain technology, that has so much to offer. RippleNet specializes in almost every significant attribute of a blockchain network, such as swift transactions, improved transparency, low transaction fees, etc. Ripple addresses the challenges that some of the existing blockchains fail to do. Its primary aim is to provide a secure and integrated global payment solution. The problem begins with today’s global payment systems. Most of the enterprises lack in having a decent infrastructure, wherein the networks fail in providing the necessary features, including sufficient inter-connectivity to serve the demands of the international users. In a nutshell, the current networks either are inefficient in proper regulations or are ineffective at handling the obstacles involved in cross-border payments. Whether it’s the high processing fees or improper servicing facilities, the incompetencies of the existing global payment networks are driving brands and consumers away from centralized systems and banks to Fintech providers like Ripple and Stellar, which are adept at handling such issues at hand. Being among the top blockchain systems, Ripple has presented itself as a viable digital investment option for domestic as well as cross-border transactions.
