Ripple CEO: Next year banks will provide custody solutions for digital assets

Published

Ripple

In recent time, there have been massive developments surrounding Ripple and blockchain technology. This continuous development could not be perceived as practical when anyone could talk about it last year.

Last year, the Chief Executive Officer of Ripple, Brad Garlinghouse mentioned how financial institutions like banks were going to integrate Ripple in their payment settlement, but his Public Relations team thought he was projecting little too high. In his statement at the SG FinTech festival 2018 that happened recently, Brad highlighted some of the series of developments that have taken place in the digital currency world.

Recently we have seen Ripple being implemented in the financial systems of major banks around the world and now its clients can send money across the border using the blockchain technology with ease – thanks to its framework.

Ripple, since being implanted in 2012, has been offering superior innovative implementations that have never been experienced leading to the continuous improvement of financial systems across the globe. This has had a positive effect on financial systems as transactions are done faster and efficiently enhancing customers trust in financial institutions and systems.

Considering the recent partnership between the Pan European Infrastructure, Target Instant Payment Settlement, and Ripple, it is expected the combination of the two efficient and effective systems are going to have positive outcomes.

Many Ripple clients, as well as European clients, will be able to utilize digital currencies as a medium of transacting virtual assets between digital platforms thereby increasing the use of digital money all over the world. It clearly shows how fast and advance in technology Ripple is moving.

The Pan European infrastructure is implemented in the Central Bank of Europe which currently is the head of the financial sector for European nations that use and implement European monetary policies in the region. It is composed of 19 countries that are member’s states of the European Union. The Euro is also termed as the most reliable currency in the world.

The sole purpose of the Target Instant payment system will be to create an instant platform that will enable the transaction of digital currencies all over Europe using the Central Bank of Europe.

The Central Bank will act as a  pathway that will facilitate the regulation of the transfer of settlement from one place to the other hence enhancing the transmission of cryptocurrency across the border, the world, and Europe. The current development will make it easier for many users to switch to Ripple blockchain as compared to other payment systems with time.

Ripple Blockchain Next Year

According to the CEO, financial institutions and banks will provide custody solutions for digital assets in the coming year. These custody solutions are products that are offered by the third party for storage and security purposes. Its introduction is with the expectation that it acts as the missing link between fund managers and investors who are seeking entry into the market.

With the development of banks, there will be more investors that will be willing to use digital currencies in their daily transactions.

If there is a possibility in the near future for IMF and Ripple Blockchain partnering and integrating their systems, it will spell good tidings in the entire blockchain and cryptocurrency ecosystem.

These could be very beneficial to the digital and financial world as it would mean that the instant digital payment system will be performed in the IMF system thereby being recognized globally and be utilized by users from different nations to transact their digital currencies across borders creating a great revolution.

With these continuous changes taking place, no one can disagree that Ripple will have a brighter 2019 considering everybody’s interest is in the adoptions and partnerships that are set to revolutionize the digital world in a big way.

Elon Musk Advises Crypto Users To Secure Their Crypto Keys Properly

Published

on

The crypto community has not gotten over the fact that the world’s richest man has now invested in Bitcoin and has been pretty active in the industry.

However, the community is now receiving security tips for storing cryptocurrencies from Tesla’s chief executive officer. While pointing the security of cryptocurrencies, Tesla also criticized Freewallet app, a crypto wallet for its slack in security.

He also added that crypto investors should not bother doing business with wallets that don’t provide them with private keys.

Users should store their private keys

The unique way cryptocurrencies are stored makes them not redeemable when the keys are lost. Whether the holder stores them with third-party custodians or exchanges, the owner can only claim them when they provide keys to the crypto funds.

That makes securing the keys the most important thing when dealing with cryptocurrencies. As a result, selecting the safest hot or cold wallet is a priority if users want to keep their crypto investments safe.

Elon Musk has come out to advise investors to always store their private keys personally. For a company to receive the attention of the world’s richest man is something to take advantage of to grow. However, FreewalletApp’s short conversation with Musk is a sort of negative publicity to them.

After the company engaged with Musk about a Dogecoin-related post, the Tesla founder pointed out faults with the firm.
He advised digital asset investors to stay…
