This is huge! I went back packing through South America a few years ago and I met many Canadian, American and German retirees settling in places like Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile and Argentina.

There was a huge colony of expats in a city called Cuenca in Ecuador. I can't imagine banks not wanting to get involved with Ripple and use xRapid with XRP. The largest issue everyone had was getting money quickly into the country. I can't imagine what this will do for businesses and the expat retiree community once this is settled. Those communities are growing in Latin America. US dollar goes a long way there and the standard of living has improved very much in a lot of these places. 

Thank you @JoelKatz , @nikb , @miguel for always being so involved in the community. You guys make a great team and one that I admire tremendously.

No question he’s referring to Citi. And they have been one of the first major banks to put their money where their mouth is on blockchain thus far with their Nasdaq partnership. They have an entire team dedicated to advancing this technology in the bank. Definitely interesting.

I was one of those expats in Cuenca Ecuador for about a year, we worked with Verbo ministries while there, missionary trips out into the jungles helping people, it was awesome. As well as working with their established orphanages to keep the places up and running.  Quite the experience. Cuenca was beautiful.
