The online world of business is undeniably changing. But, have we seen its full extent yet? Perhaps the answer lies with the blockchain technology. Some studies point out that with blockchain (like Ripple, and of course, other similar ones like Stellar or the ones that might come to the party) integration by the banks, they will be able to realize significant savings.

The banks will enjoy cost reductions not only in their payment processing as well as reconciliation alongside compliance and treasury operations.

DZ Bank AG Considering Ripple Interledger Protocol

DZ Bank is one of the most talked after bank in Germany. It is the second largest bank in the country by asset size as well as the central institution. The bank functions as both a central institution as well as corporate and investment bank.

Concerning potential Ripple Interledger protocol integration, the bank has listed a couple of slides in their recent report “blockchain(s) and potential impacts on reconciliation.” It is not rocket science to what that may mean just because the protocol is all about cross-border transactions.

If at all it means DZ is considering to welcome Ripple Interledger protocol to their platform, it won’t do anything different but probably a smile to the bank users and of course, the Ripple community.

Transactions would be made easy and undoubtedly pretty faster than what users over there enjoy now. Precisely, the Ripple blockchain technology will rewire the world’s financial system improving the cost, without any doubt, alongside the speed of the transactions.

Has DZ Bank Been Testing Ripple?

Just like any other sensitive sector, integrating something new into the banking system without testing can be a grave mistake. However, suddenly DZ bank is here pointing to that direction. But where it gets pretty interesting is that there is another partner of Ripple (XRP) in Frankfurt – ReiseBank.

That may not seem interesting enough but the fact ReiseBank is a wholly owned subsidiary of DZ bank makes it more interesting. Recently Frank Boberach, ReiseBank head of product management, stated that they were happy to be among the first to have a demo of a Ripple transaction in the world.

The point probably is that DZ bank let their subsidiary-ReiseBank, take all the risks of testing Ripple Interledger Protocol and waited for the results. And perhaps if these results are conclusive, then DZ can go ahead and implement Ripple without taking any risk as well as wasting time doing the tests.

As for now, only time will tell what the future holds for the banks and the Ripple Interledger protocol. Probably the banks will be after each other on who has integrated Ripple blockchain first, and who knows at some point incorporating this blockchain project will be prestigious, and the banks will be coming upfront proudly saying, “we have Ripple too.”

How Cryptocurrencies Will Change Online Gambling in the Future

Anyone who has followed online gambling since the beginning can tell you that things don’t stay the same for long. One of the reasons for this is that technology improves at such a ridiculously fast pace, and innovators in this industry are able to match up with those technological changes pretty quickly.

An innovation in technology that the Internet gambling industry has really learned from is cryptocurrency, with bitcoin in particular leading the way. We’ve seen it emerge as an alternative banking method, but it’s going to change the industry as a whole in ways that people can’t quite understand yet.

A Post-Legality Era

Something that has eluded online gambling since its inception is the idea of a global governing body. As it stands right now, each individual country (and smaller units of jurisdiction) have their own governing bodies that oversee in the industry. A lot of these laws are tied to banking laws, and that’s where the legality of playing in bitcoin casinos becomes such an interesting topic.

In the present, we’re seeing country-based regulatory bodies from places like Malta, Gibraltar and the United Kingdom start to work together and recognize each other’s licenses more and more. That’s taking serious steps towards having a global governing entity, and once that happens, the role of bitcoin is going to be even larger than it is now because it’ll…

What is a VPN?

Virtual Private Network (VPN) is generally presented by the group of linked to each other computers via the Internet. VPN boosts protection and provides a high level of anonymity to all types of Internet connections.

Security

While the connection to the ordinary Wi-Fi networks, a user usually gets access to the Internet directly, thus he becomes vulnerable to the hackers and the malware attempting to steal his personal data. On the other hand, applying VPN one transmits and gets data in encrypted form which makes it protected.

Anonymity

Generally, isn’t hard to trace an Ip-address of any user and to identify his location with sufficient accuracy. With the help of VPN, the attacker will only get the address of the removed computer. Undoubtedly, the safeguard…
