After the long-awaited system in the market, finally, clients who enjoy transacting money using the digital platform can now rejoice after the alleged Ripple partner and Pan European infrastructure, Target Instant payment settlement is expected to go live next month, November 2018.

The European Central Bank is the leading financial institution for European countries administering monetary policies in the European block, which is comprised of 19 EU member states. The Euro is currently one of the strongest currency in the world.

The great news came from Equens world Line, a pioneer with the primary objective to deal with instant payment and money transaction operations. Giving the story on their tweeter account, they informed the followers on how they were going to go live in next month and continued to advise the followers on the expectations, and how the innovation is going to revolutionize Europe when it comes to technology.

The primary purpose of Target instant payment settlement will be to create an instant payment system all over Europe using the central bank as a channel to regulate the transfer of settlements enabling the transmission of digital money across the border and Europe as a whole. And as ‘instant payment settlement’ term is attached to the service, multiple anonymous sources have reported that they have turned to Ripple blockchain.

Some of the benefits of the system will include no minimum wait during the transaction process, available transaction settlement all over the clock for its customers hence clients can access their finances throughout and make payments with ease of any delay. The surprising fact about the instant payment system is that it allows the currency to be settled in the bank at any time creating an all-time all access system.

The will also be an elimination of time wastage between the client and the bank as the financial system money transactions will be updated instantly avoiding any credit risks among the clients (another hint of Ripple involvement, right?

That’s exactly what the blockchain project has been pushing to do to banks). In addition to that, all the service providers could now be happy as they will be reachable without actually opening an account with TIPS. Hence one can be a non-member and still operate using the settlement system.

Consequently, the instant money payment settlement scheme will allow the movement of currency from one financial provider platform to the other without the need of any clearing services. These clearing services could be the main reason why there was a delay in the transaction in the traditional system payment systems. This system is an improvement from other conventional methods that one had to do the clearing before the settlement takes place.

After the announcement, some people were very excited and took to Twitter for replying to the great news. Understandably, some followers thought that it was Ripple instant payment system.

The euro system decided to incorporate TIPS due to its fantastic experience to incorporate payment settlement and matches its object that is to enable innovation and extension regarding technology to the European countries. Even if Ripple is not involved in this case, the fact that the central bank is regulating the system is a big win for the cryptocurrency sector as now more people will be willing to transact money globally without fear of insecurity.

The leading institutions that are going to benefit from this move in December are the credit institutions that ate implemented and situated in the European economic region or outside the area provided that they operate through an institution run by the European economic region and all national central banks of the European Union.

Although it will use euro for settlement, this will be one of the most significant milestones that could ever happen in euros technology concerning the world of digital currency. The involvement of Ripple blockchain is yet to be confirmed, but the nodes match quite well.
