I guess this is good news for Ripple.
Ripple just partnered with Palau to launch their own digital currency and the world’s first CBDC.
If this goes smoothly, this could propel dozens of more countries to utilize the $XRP ledger. Yea, In the meantime, if you own XRP you can’t buy it or sell it. So it’s in hiatus.
Ripple is doing for value what the internet did for information: enabling its instant and seamless flow around the world. We call this the Internet of Value (IoV). Using blockchain and cryptocurrency technology, Ripple is dedicated to creating powerful gains in financial efficiency, equity and inclusion. In addition, Ripple is developing and enabling the future use cases that will catalyze the new digital economy for governments, businesses and consumers.
Ripple has offices in San Francisco (HQ), New York, London, Mumbai, Singapore, São Paulo, Reykjavík, Washington D.C. and Dubai.
I always had a feeling Ripple was going to be huge. If the Rothchilds own it, you know it will be profitable.
Ripple, which is based in San Francisco, generated a lot of buzz during the crypto frenzy of late 2017 and 2018, which saw the prices of bitcoin, ether and other cryptocurrencies skyrocket to record highs.
XRP, a token Ripple is closely associated with, benefited from that rally, hitting an all-time high above $3. It’s since declined dramatically from that price but is riding the latest crypto wave with a more than 370% gain year-to-date.
Ripple’s technology is designed to let banks and other financial services firms send money across borders faster and at a lower cost. The company also markets another product that utilizes XRP for cross-border payments called On-Demand Liquidity.
The SEC is concerned about Ripple’s ties to XRP, alleging the company and its executives sold $1.3 billion worth of the tokens in an unregistered securities offering. But Ripple contends that XRP should not be considered a security, a classification that would bring it under much more regulatory scrutiny.
