Ripple is distinctly cost-effective and fast: Japanese banking giant MUFG



Ripple MUFG

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc is one of the top banks in the world, and it has shown immense support for cryptocurrencies. Earlier this year, the bank announced its aim of testing a propriety cryptocurrency by next year. The primary objective of this is to reveal its token to the public and to use it as a means of payment. Japan aims to bank on cryptocurrency for its future businesses – and may use Ripple’s technology in actualizing its aims.

Japan’s support for cryptocurrency is without doubts and its largest bank, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc (MUFG), has been partnering with Ripple since last year. According to the bank, Ripple makes transactions easier, faster, and cheaper. It also said that Ripple’s products (xVia, and xCurrent) are top-notch and are going to change the way money is being transferred.

MUFG has professed positive things about Ripple (XRP) and how its technology has assisted ever since the partnership began. It is important to know that MUFG is the biggest bank in Japan and it boasts of $2.5 trillion in assets. The MUFG CEO stated that Ripple is among the solutions they are testing, and the blockchain is the one that works.

The CEO further went to elaborate on global money transactions as he said:

Why this really matters to us, we operate in more than 50 countries as banks around the world, so, more than 50 countries have branches and operations, and we have to move money between all those operations every day in a significant amount of money. We got some multinational corporates that operate all across, so there is huge liquidity occurring every day.”

Ripple has been offering constant solutions especially to FinTech companies around the globe, and it is without doubts one of the best cryptos with great utility. The CEO of MUFG further went on to explain how Ripple and its technology have been offering great solutions in sending money worldwide without exorbitant costs.

He said Ripple is ‘time-saving.’ The head of the world’s fifth-biggest bank (MUFG) says,

Many of us have gone through swift and incurred charges…many intermediary banks part of that, and typically an SLA for fund transfer movements is between 1-3 days… Using technology such as ripple, we can get that down to something like 30 seconds significantly different and a cheaper cost as well, so it’s just not time-saving, but the cost as well.”

MUFG’s CEO went on to talk on how Ripple has helped one of their companies in diverse ways, in which, the group’s company succeeded in actualizing an interledger payment with Ripple blockchain last year.

Other big companies such as Royal Bank of Canada, Westpac Banking corp., Standard Chartered and Steering Group have been making use of Ripple’s technology for its payments all over the world for quite some time now already.

Japanese MUFG is the latest big gun to join the train. Notwithstanding, Western Union, tested Ripple’s technology too but they didn’t conclude Ripple being the cheapest. Also, Bit4You, Escrow, and Platio are making out plans to join the train very soon.

Ripple’s XRP Price Overview

At the time of writing, XRP is priced at $0.331. Even though Bitcoin and some other significant coins are in the green today, it remains bearish.

The Ripple-owned cryptocurrency was priced at $0.413 at the beginning of last month, but the XRP’s price has decreased by a substantial percentage this month. However, it is expected that XRP will continue this consolidation until a strong bearish candle breaks $0.310 as new lows are going into the last quarter (Q4) of the year.

Bitcoin casino

Bitcoin entered the world in 2009 and immediately begun a revolution on the cryptocurrency market. Presently, there are more than 700 different digital currencies, but Bitcoin still remains the most used one. However, despite the large business activity around Bitcoin, there is still no international legal law to regulate it.

Key facts on Legality in Bitcoin casinos

Laws and obligations concerning online gambling legislation vary from country to country. There are many jurisdictions that can issue gambling licenses to online casinos. But, these licenses are issued only after the online casino business meets the requirements of the chosen jurisdiction.

Among other things, it allows running a legal activity and assures the casino operator’s trustworthy behavior, fair gaming policy and transparency in business operations and gaming software offered to customers. A representative of this kind of casino, such as FortuneJack for example, will have good reviews and reputation, and stable business that is constantly growing and expanding throughout the years. You can also feel the stability by checking the website, and important details such as casino withdrawal time and the number of games offered for playing, as you can examine on Fortunejack.

How to Reach 100% Security of Online Transactions?



security of online transactions

The use of the global network for e-commerce operations requires ensuring an adequate level of security for all financial transactions carried out online. Each payment system uses the most convenient methods based on its capabilities and technical specifications. However, this doesn’t mean that you should only trust the system without adhering to general safety rules. For example, using ExpressVPN vs NordVPN or performing e-commerce operations or online trading in private networks will be a very good idea.

Online Security as It Is

The concept of information security means its resistance to accidental or deliberate impacts, the inadmissibility of destruction, distortion or disclosure to third parties, which can lead to material damage to the information owner. Here are some of the basic requirements that are to be adhered to:

  • Confidentiality – protection of information from unauthorized access is often provided by data encryption – conversion of text data into digital form, which can not be read without a special algorithm and a key;
  • Authentication – unique identification of the user. This often uses a login (domain name) and password, as well as additional confirmation, including one-time passwords or secret codes that are printed in a single copy for a given user password;
  • EDS – for the best data protection, electronic digital signatures (EDS) are used, which unambiguously determine that this information was received from a particular person who…

Is Unification (UND) XRP 2.0? IEO April 10th at UTC+8 on Bitforex!





Unification is a Hybrid blockchain solution for Enterprise. Above is my interview with CEO Neyma Jahan I explore what is Unification, how does a WRKchain actually work and why is this something people will quickly adopt. What is a really telling story here is that this is one of the few ICO/IEO/ITO etc… that actually is revenue positive which I honestly could not think of many others that were?

Neyma and team come from a background in real business, and they are focused on bringing blockchain adoption to the next level. They decided to go with the WRKchain or better known by some as a permissioned sidechain so that nodes can work together even if they do not like each other.

An example:

In education, we have tons of issues with plagiarism in universities and several, miss this and people write half copied thesis papers and get away with it. Imagine now for papers across Ivy league to Community colleges a system where professors come to a consensus about papers. Now also think of it this way those professors reading this paper all must read it, evaluate it, and come to a consensus. This will take out the professor knowing that student and give an honest overall evaluation. So each professor is basically a node. Then for each paper, there would be…
