  3. Previous Work: https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/7598-ripplegates-foundationindia/?tab=comments#comment-99889 https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/9189-ripple-india/ https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/9760-ripple-singapore-bahrain-the-uae/?tab=comments#comment-97143 ***THIS IS ALL SPECULATION*** The Korean Government Similar to other Asian Pacific countries, South Korea is being proactive on adopting financial technology. As a society, Korea is trending towards being cashless with credit and bank cards becoming the primary means of conducting trade. http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/biz/2016/03/488_199146.html Koreans themselves have begun to accept the notion of carrying less cash. https://www.electronicproducts.com/Mobile/Devices/South_Korea_plans_to_become_a_cashless_society_by_2020.aspx And the Central Bank of Korea has also set a deadline in which they want to demonetize trade transactions by 2020. http://www.livebitcoinnews.com/south-koreas-cashless-push-will-see-coins-removed-circulation-2020/ Ultimately the removal of coins will cause a disruption on retail prices for goods and services within the country. The Central Bank of South Korea is facilitating these changes by instructing consumers to deposit loose change onto the national T-Money cards. The T-Money card can be used for all forms of transportation including taxi rides, and in several thousand convenience stores in the country, as a payment option. And in an added effort, "loose change" in trade transactions will be able to automatically be deposited into the individual's bank account. https://www.electronicproducts.com/Mobile/Devices/South_Korea_plans_to_become_a_cashless_society_by_2020.aspx http://www.livebitcoinnews.com/south-koreas-cashless-push-will-see-coins-removed-circulation-2020/ http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/biz/2016/03/488_199146.html To take even further, the South Korea’s Financial Services Commission (KFSC) publicly announced it's objective to have a national digital currency using blockchain technology by 2020. https://bravenewcoin.com/news/south-korea-plans-national-digital-currency-using-a-blockchain/ Within the announcement, a consortium dealing blockchain technology was said to be forming by FI's to jointly research and run pilots projects. https://bravenewcoin.com/news/south-korea-plans-national-digital-currency-using-a-blockchain/ https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/south-korea-announces-digital-currency-system-expansion-boost-fintech/ http://www.businesskorea.co.kr/english/news/money/16703-blackchain-movement-blockchain-consortium-launched-south-korea While at the same time, the Bank of Korea released a report on FinTech Companies shaping the financial industry stating that, https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/bank-korea-fintech-companies-will-reshape-financial-industry/ Shortly after, the Korean consortium publicly announced it's formation stating that 21 financial investment companies and five blockchain technology firms had signed a memorandum-of-understanding (MoU) to develop distributed ledger solutions in blockchain solutions. With a given road-map of the consortium's motives, https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/south-korea-sees-first-blockchain-consortium/ Ultimately the action being taken within South Korea was mirroring the movements being undergone by their neighbors across the sea in Japan. With Ripple partners coming into play...... Initially details on the consortium weren't disclosed but shortly after the announcement of it's formation, a partnership involving the KFSC was reached. The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) agreed on cooperation over exploring joint innovation projects with a focus on big data and mobile payments in FinTech. http://www.mas.gov.sg/News-and-Publications/Media-Releases/2016/Singapore-and-South-Korea-sign-cooperation-agreement-in-FinTech.aspx https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/singapore-south-korea-come-together-fintech/ On top of a collaboration with MAS, the government of South Korea was in talks with Indonesian government about joining forces in an attempt to boost the FinTech industry to help the burgeoning sector in both countries. https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/south-korea-indonesia-considering-fintech-collaboration/ For those that are unaware, Ripple has previously met with the Central Bank of Indonesia. Months later, the Korean Central Bank announced plans to execute a R3 consortium proof-of-concept blockchain technology project. https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/korean-central-bank-deploy-r3s-blockchain-proof-concept/ http://ftreporter.com/korean-central-bank-to-use-r3-blockchain-proof-of-concept/ https://www.econotimes.com/Exclusive-Bank-of-Korea-R3-consortium-to-carry-out-blockchain-project-549053 So to reiterate, the Korean government came into agreement with MAS on cooperating in the FinTech space and shortly after the Korean Central Bank decided to proceed with a PoC consortium by R3 similar to Project Ubin in Singapore...... Along with the previous development, Hana Financial Group became the first Korean financial institution to take part in the R3 CEV project. http://pulsenews.co.kr/view.php?sc=30800020&year=2016&no=281535 Remember that MAS wants to expand it's network to other central bank for cross-border transactions using a Ripple blockchain prototype......... SBI Ripple Asia Just this past September, SBI Ripple Asia announced that it would be testing a blockchain based funds transfer system by the end of this year between Japanese and South Korean banks. SBI Ripple and it's new public partner, DAYLI Intelligence, will work together to http://blocktribune.com/sbi-ripple-asia-trial-cross-border-blockchain-funds-transfers/ https://www.coindesk.com/sbi-ripple-asia-to-test-bank-transfers-between-japan-and-south-korea/ And besides cooperating in this venture with SBI Ripple Asia, DAYLI Intelligence is involved in another interesting project. http://pulsenews.co.kr/view.php?year=2017&no=551655 All three parties are in cooperation developing the "WeBee" coin with the intention of the digital coin operating on a blockchain. (what will be used for trade remittances?......) http://pulsenews.co.kr/view.php?year=2017&no=551655 https://financefeeds.com/south-korean-woori-bank-develop-digital-coins/ Finally, SBI Ripple Asia is involved with another Korean company called Coinplug. https://www.coindesk.com/sbi-reveals-joint-blockchain-remittance-venture-south-korean-startup/ With the venture expected to launch its remittance service later this year...... And just like DAYLI Intelligence, Coinplug has involved itself in another interesting project. Coinplug with KB Kookmin are going to provide cross-border foreign exchange services that utilize blockchain technology. http://themerkle.com/south-koreas-bank-developing-blockchain-exchange/ https://www.coindesk.com/korean-bank-developing-blockchain-solution-foreign-exchange/ And KB Kookim are also releasing a blockchain based mobile payment service for KB Kookim Card..... http://pulsenews.co.kr/view.php?no=741187&year=2016 Kakao Unlike most attempts to tie links with Ripple by addressing potential connections to Alibaba (which I think is a thing), my focus is solely on KakaoPay/KakaoTalk. KakaoTalk is a mobile messenger while KakaoPay is a mobile payment system built on top of KakaoTalk. The development of KakaoPay was thru Kakao and LG CNS https://www.lgcns.com/Views/Solution/KakaoPay_En Kakao had also partnered with the KFTC in the past for integrating a mobile payment platform to the Korean financial system. https://techcrunch.com/2014/11/12/korean-internet-giant-daum-kakao-launches-its-own-mobile-payment-platform/ Remember that. LG CNS themselves have been adopting blockchain technology to improve their services, most notably with R3. https://www.coindesk.com/electronics-giant-lg-testing-r3s-distributed-ledger-software/ https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/lg-launches-corda-based-blockchain-platform-south-korea/ And there is another connection. http://www.techforkorea.com/2017/03/14/kakaopay-launches-new-service-transfer-to-bank/ What will be used to settle remittances between a Hana Money and KakaoMoney exchange?......... The same Hana Financial that had entered R3's CEV project mentioned earlier. And with the the government of Korea driving blockchain adoption on the Korean banks, there has been some interesting developments. With, http://mengnews.joins.com/view.aspx?aId=3037416 http://www.theasianbanker.com/press-releases/korean-banks-turn-to-blockchain-to-streamline-service The winner was supposedly chosen last month, with the system built being ready for use by banks in April..... (all while SBI Ripple Asia/R3 in Korea are becoming increasingly active) To come into to full circle, LG CNS has ~32% ownership with Seoul Metropolitan City Government (~35%) on Korea Smart Card Co. What is special about Korea Smart Card Co.? The T-Money system was implemented and is operated by Korea Smart Card..... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-money The same T-Money mentioned earlier in the post that will be used to transmit loose change from trade transactions to the individual's bank account. In a financial environment that will be riddled with many different types of digital currencies, what method will be used to settle remittances?..... I mention Seoul Metroplitan City Government because of one partner ship it is in. https://www.crowdfundinsider.com/2017/09/121430-singapore-korea-fintech-collaboration-marvelstone-group-seoul-metropolitan-sign-mou/ A group that has the support of none other than MAS.... http://www.mas.gov.sg/News-and-Publications/Speeches-and-Monetary-Policy-Statements/Speeches/2016/Speech-at-the-Launch-of-Lattice80.aspx So why do I persist on these R3 connections? It's simple. SBI Group became the largest shareholder of R3 over the summer while we know SBI's intentions with XRP. In an interview with Kitao, he stated that https://ripple.com/insights/sbi-holdings-views-on-blockchain-and-xrp-an-interview-with-yoshitaka-kitao/ So how does the R3 and Ripple relationship work? Last month Data Dimension had a presentation a slide that is rather revealing on the partnership. https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/15381/262389?utm_campaign=knowledge-feed&utm_source=brighttalk-portal&utm_medium=web Both work in unison with Corda being applied for smart contracts while Ripple is meant for the payments segment which might explain why R3 wanted that XRP so bad............ Edit: UPDATE: 12-5-2018 https://www.coindesk.com/r3s-new-corda-app-supports-payments-in-xrp-cryptocurrency
  4. This is quite interesting, especially the bold part (machine translated): https://jp.cointelegraph.com/news/sbi-kitao-ceo-reveals-the-plan-for-lauching-sbi-r3-asia/ SBI Ripple Following Asia SBI-R3 Motivation for the creation of Asia, President Kitao mentioned at earnings briefing Yoshitaka Kitao, president and CEO of SBI Holdings, mentioned the plan for the creation of SBI-R3 Asia on the account settlement meeting on 30th October, the second quarter of 2019 (April - September 2018) . President Kitao who worked to resolve the case problem of ripple and block chain development company R 3 company said that he would like to make R 3 company to create a project to use virtual currency XRP. Regarding the virtual currency trading business, he said that he will take in young users by using T points. Ripple to R3 and R3 settlement to establish SBI-R3 Asia On April 4, SBI Ripple Asia's secretariat, "Internal and external exchange consortium" released a money handling application "money tap" for smartphone that utilized Ripple's Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) "xCurrent" . The future is in the phase of expanding participation lines. SBI, which holds about 10% of the shares of Ripple, emphasized that "ripple's DLT or XRP will be used to streamline international remittance" as implemented by Ripple's technology in money taps. President Kitao also mentioned the settlement of Ripple with the R3 company that develops block chains. SBI is the outside largest shareholder of R3, and as soon as it reveals that the top of both companies has pressed for a litigation problem closely . In the earnings briefing session, he said that discussions have started for the creation of SBI-R3 Asia. "You will have to make such a project that will make R3 use XRP in earnest.When the two companies hold their hands it will be possible to cover almost all fields.In addition to international remittances, XRP There is the possibility that it will be widely used.We are discussing with SBI R3 in order to create SBI-R3 Asia similar to SBI Ripple Asia. " Promotion of virtual currency trading of young people at T point, competition is Rakuten SBI SECURITIES established a joint venture company "SBI NeoMobile Securities" on 30th, signing a capital and business alliance with CCC Marketing of the C - Ture Convenience Club (CCC) group with 67.88 million active members . Provide financial services with smartphone as the main channel. We plan to realize T points according to transactions and purchase financial products by points, and we will introduce T point programs in various businesses that SBI develops, such as banks, securities, remittances. About the virtual currency exchange "VCTRADE" operated by SBI virtual currency seeds President Kitao "I want to take in the young generation thoroughly, of course I am planning to do it even in the virtual currency so that virtual currency can be bought at points Let's do it. " Also, "I want to build an SBI-T point economic zone that goes beyond the Rakuten economic zone," there was a comment reminiscent of Rakuten announcing entry into the virtual currency trading business on August 31. SBI Neo Mobile Securities will start business next spring.
  5. The journey may have been a thousand miles, but the destination is now clear for XRP. Lots Happening! As executives from Ripple continue to prompt governments - both in the US and in Japan - for regulatory clarity, they have not stopped expanding the RippleNet network or its list of clients. Chris Larsen announces that Ripple has signed over 100 clients to production contracts, and Ryan Zagone, Brad Garlinghouse, and Cory Johnson all make high-profile public appearances, emphasizing similar points in unison. ACI Worldwide, the US-based payments giant, mentions Ripple technology in a recent interview, and the Japanese Banking Consortium readies MoneyTap for initial release. Ripple also settles its lawsuit with R3 and provides further updates to the upcoming SWELL Conference, which is now only two weeks away! And in Coil news, an independent developer releases a step-by-step guide for how Wix website owners can sign up for web monetization. Winding things up, WietseWind reveals plans to help people monetize their own extra, home-generated electricity, and a new Python library to access the XRP Library is released by a community developer.

  6. Ripple XRP: Forced Perspective. Why the sky is falling
  7. How can XRP crypto investors help mainstream financial markets - and those others already in crypto - move past current limitations into the future? I give my take on this topic in today's blog, and spend some time covering the biggest XRP news items as well. This includes news from some of the biggest companies that build on XRP, including Ripple, Coil, and SBI, as well as two XRP Community members. I guarantee that the average crypto investor - and even those that follow XRP - have had a hard time keeping up with all the latest information; there's a lot to cover, but I did my best to touch on the most impactful items.

Note that the Q&A with Bitrue is an exclusive just for the XRP Community. Of course, I also include the latest developments by XRP Community developers; this includes updates about two wallets that you may not know about. I hope you enjoy today's lengthier update!

  10. There's a LOT going on in crypto as we speak, and the two Congressional hearings were just a sample. I analyze the testimony provided to Congress in both of those important hearings. In addition, SBI Virtual Currencies has gone live now for all Japanese users, marking an important milestone. SBI VC will have an enormous impact on sustained volume levels for XRP. Two recent conferences featured Ripple representatives, and Ripple has begun organizing for the next SWELL Conference! Last but not least, I make the case that the XRP Community should make more than a token effort to visibly and materially support businesses that in turn support XRP. While large Silicon Valley players address the high-profile use cases for XRP, the XRP Community can make significant inroads supporting retail businesses. I hope you enjoy this latest blog.

  11. https://www.coindesk.com/gmos-new-internet-bank-will-settle-payments-with-blockchain/ Japanese digital services firm GMO Internet has just launched a new web bank that it says will soon use blockchain to facilitate payments. The firm said in a company notice that it had teamed up with Aozora Bank Group on the joint enterprise and that the two firms had been preparing for the launch of the "next-generation" bank since mid-2016. Azora is part of the SBI consortium.

  13. Hello, The official date when the XRP was launched with SBI was 04 July 2018, but when will be the date when the XRP will be used by SBI? ?
  14. As you all might know that Yoshitaka Kitao, CEO of Tokyo based SBI Holdings, expects XRP price to reach $10 end of year. Yoshitaka Kitao is a serious businessman with huge influence on financial environment. What do you think how he made his prediction? How accurate can his prediction be? I have a gut feeling it is not only a guesstimate, but it made based on scientific estimation. Many of you are more optimistic about pricing XRP, but considering Mr. Kitao professional experience his prediction might be the closest to the real. So realistically the best prediction would be $10 EOY price. What do you think? Again the main question is not about the speculation (that's why I chose 'General Discussion' ) but the method/background information from he made his prediction.
  15. This looks like good news for moving the SBI/Ripple partnership forward, a regulated exchange https://cointelegraph.com/news/japanese-finance-giant-sbi-invests-in-regulated-ico-platform-templum Japanese Finance Giant SBI Invests In Regulated ICO Platform Templum "Japanese financial services giant SBI Holdings has invested in fintech company Templum, which focuses on offering regulated securities token offerings, according to a press release published yesterday, April 25." "SBI Holding’s investment concluded a $10 mln fundraising round, which Templum reportedly will use to bring in institutional and accredited investors. SBI Holding did not disclose the exact amount they invested." "Templum’s website describes the company as providing “regulatory compliant solutions for Tokenized Asset Offerings (Initial Coin Offerings as securities) and subsequent secondary trading.” "The Japanese finance company is currently leading a 61-bank consortium working on a domestic payments mobile app using Ripple’s technology." (bold is mine)

    SBI and XRP

    If SBI launches one or two exchanges with XRP as the pillar for the exchange how would that affect the price of XRP say on Binance; is there any direct correlation for the price to go up on Binance or other exchanges?
  17. In my latest blog, I discuss the real work Ripple is doing to transform the world's global infrastructure. All of the puzzle pieces that Ripple has been working on are now coming together in 2018; From worldwide liquidity coverage in a multitude of corridors, to a massive influx of customers through SBI's new VC services. In addition, the CEO of Pantera Capital just made an astounding prediction for the overall crypto market cap; I break down what it may mean for XRP.

    Hi there, any news about SBI holding ? THX.
  19. Any know when Sbi virtual exchange will officially launch? Has any information been realsed?
  20. More setbacks for Bitcoin are acting like an anchor on the crypto market. In today's blog entry, I talk about those factors, as well as how I see XRP diverging from Bitcoin's market leading dominance. For Ripple and XRP, it's been nonstop good news over the last four days, with the big news being the anticipated release of the MoneyTap application by the Japanese Banking Consortium (JBC). I discuss the details behind this application plus I have some surprises about possible business deals you might not know about. It includes the partial acquisition of a hardware wallet company by SBI, the addition of XRP to the BitIT marketplace, a Grayscale investment fund specifically targeting XRP, and the rumor of Ripple technology underlying a deal between Saison and Grab. Rounding out the list is an update for those in the XRP community eagerly awaiting the release of the Kyte wallet! I hope you enjoy - please leave any feedback below.

  21. https://cointelegraph.com/news/japans-finance-giant-sbi-buys-40-of-taiwanese-crypto-hardware-wallet-company The entire SBI story is getting better and better. A bit more delay for an amazing launch including offline storage on credit card sized CollWallets! Yes please. “CoolBitX currently manufacturers CoolWallet as its primary offering — a hardware wallet akin to a credit card which communicates to devices via Bluetooth. SBI is currently spearheading a mass trial of Ripple’s technology in a separate major venture involving around 60 banks, the majority of which are based in Japan.”
  22. I can't remember seeing a XRP/JPY pair so high volume-wise. Took a quick look at their exchange and it looks like the volume surge started about 2 weeks ago while the overall volume on most other exchanges declined. Currently 80% of the volume on Bitbank comes from XRP. The recent SBI news are most likely spreading. Bitbank seems to be a small exchange. Image what SBI will contribute
  23. New video update on the recent news and events.
  24. Apologies for the long post but the Lian Lian announcement needs to be unpacked a bit because I find this fascinating and pretty exciting stuff. Happy to have the ideas tested a bit by the smart cookies on XRPChat. TL;DR? How Ripple is triggering a battle to become the new banking superpower in Asia. A key issue for China is their concern about currency outflows so any organisation that simplifies international remittance at a retail level will be under the spotlight. They know that wealthy Chinese nationals are using HK as a gateway to move funds out of China and they need to control that outflow. Some countries are making that job easier for China as part of trade negotiations - e.g. Australia imposed strict foreign investment rules that has had an immediate impact on foreign (read Chinese) investment in the Australian property market. That's not the whole story because the Chinese can't simply throw the baby out with the bathwater here. The Chinese have spent the better part of the last 40 years building up close economic ties and foreign investment in ASEAN, African and South American nations so international remittance becomes a very, very big deal. The Central Committee will therefore be watching this experiment very carefully. Why "experiment"? Since the Deng era, the Chinese government has been conducting all types of regional economic experiments in "Special Economic Zones". They often let the region run them on an informal basis (nods and winks) even where the practice is contrary to national laws. Then they sit back and watch to see how it plays out. One of the earliest examples were those conducted by Xi Zhongxun in Guandong Province in 1979. Who's Xi Zhongxun, you ask? Xi Zhongxun was the father of the PRC's current president, Xi Jinping. Xi therefore grew up in a region that was the Great Southern Gateway to Hong Kong and the West and a study case for testing capitalist ideas. That context should provide us with a clear pointer for where Xi and the Central Committee is heading with this. If this experiment is successful and avoids major financial pitfalls and adverse societal impact, any prohibitions mysteriously lift (sometimes without announcement) and we see the experiment converted into national policy. The acceleration after that is then unleashed (which is why I believe the introduction of xRapid won't be gradual, it will be sudden and explosive). The Chinese Government moves so quickly on regulation/de-regulation you can get whip-lash trying to keep up. Or worse, you wake up and find yourself in jail. What we are watching is effectively a banking technology arms race: we see a resurgent Shinzo Abe working the international circuit like you wouldn't believe, spruiking the Japanese economic recovery and drumming up support to have Japan become a Westerner-friendly counter-balance to China in Asia. The moves by SBI and Japanese FIs are significant for Ripple and XRP because it forces China/HK to play catch up and they won't like it for two main reasons: bare-knuckle nationalism and the battle to become a banking superpower in Asia. Singapore is the next one to watch. Thanks to the nature of Chinese politics and history, they can afford to calculate in generations, not years. Japan is more or less a single-party state so its political elite are effectively in the same position of strength. As is Singapore. All of this levels out the playing field and puts the heat on China who are, nonetheless, masters of the (very) long game. I bet the Central Committee is scrambling to formulate a coherent policy as we speak because they can't afford to be late to the party when the tectonic plates are shifting (apologies for the mixed metaphors). Luckily for us, they have the best and brightest working long hours to test the various scenarios including this "little experiment" being run by Lian Lian. I've stopped eating popcorn. It's just too much.
