During the MI Global Summit anchored by the nonprofit, Milken Institute, Cory Johnson, Ripple’s executive talked on the recent strides of Ripple and the payment solutions for cross-border settlements. Mr. Johnson further spoke on how the cross-border solutions of Ripple are distinct from others.
We do know that SWIFT is one of the payment solutions that has existed for quite some time now and this payment medium hasn’t given the best. Ripple is in the quest to take over the world and have a large part of SWIFT business.
Ripple offers a great solution to cross-border payments, and Mr. Johnson has also emphasized during the MI Global Summit that Ripple is poised to solve the problems of cross-border payments and provide a faster solution where cross-border transactions can be received instantly.
Johnson further stated that we are in the world where texts can be sent to any place in the world and received within seconds. He said before now; it wasn’t possible to perform border transactions to any place in the world within seconds or even in 24 hours. Ripple Chief Marketing Strategist, Cory Johnson further added this:
“As you know for all of the globalization that we have with our stuff and goods that gets shipped in containers all over the world and all the globalization of our data which is instantaneously moving all over the world at super low cost, we move money like it’s 1973 and that leg of globalization hasn’t happened.”
Mr. Johnson made it clear that Ripple offers a better means for FinTech companies wanting to transfer funds to anywhere in the world within few seconds.
Furthermore, he has also added that the world is beginning to embrace the change in cross-border payments. He also declared that Ripple’s solutions are getting adopted by major banks and other FinTech solutions around the world chronologically.
That is true as MoneyTap, one of the biggest payment platforms in Japan has adopted Ripple’s technology. It is important to know that more than 60 banks use MoneyTap in Japan – that means 80% of banks in the same country. We need to recall that the CEO of SBI stated earlier at the time when MoneyTap was to be unveiled that:
“We are also considering using XRP for bridge currency in Money Tap.”
Other companies are now making use of Ripple’s technology, and Mr. Johnson said that its product is far ahead of other companies offering the same services and that the blockchain firm has the most significant client base in the crypto sphere.
As per Ripple Labs’ insiders, XRP will be launched very soon to cross-border booster payments. The company also said that xRapid would be launched too before the year closes and it is undergoing different tests from Cuallix and zipremit.
It is important to know that many speculations have been around that the news about the launch of xRapid caused Ripple’s surge last week. xRapid is an innovative means to foster business transactions of financial industries.
Mr. Johnson added that Ripple offers tangibility upon customer’s preference. He said that Ripple’s product is entirely unique from the one Swift offers. According to him, Swift only dispatches one type of messages and that the charges involved aren’t transparent enough.
The blockchain project’s customers are happy that Ripple is transparent on its cross-border transactions, which he believes was the turning point for consumers. And taking a look at the facts and reactions from community members, it won’t be wrong to agree to what the Ripple executive claims.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.

Can Libra help the crypto industry to reach new heights?

The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.
From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.
What is Libra?
Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.
