Ripple and SAP collaborate on international settlements using the blockchain

Banks like ATB Financial Bank Canda and ReiseBank AG Germany have been using Ripple blockchain since 2016 already.

Sometime in September, Enterprise Software maker SAP organized a chat on Twitter to explain to its users the workings of blockchain technology. The conversation focused on basic information on how blockchain could be used to improve business operations and processes, making several industries more efficient by optimizing transaction efficiency.

In the process of sharing information with their clients, SAP made known nuggets of revelations that users were quick to latch onto: SAP was testing and looking into integrating with Ripple’s default virtual currency, XRP.

The news came from SAP’s Product Marketing Consultant, Sarah Austin who doubles as an entrepreneur and content creator and has been featured in the Forbes under 30 lists. Sarah started working at SAP in 2012.

Today, it comes as no surprise that SAP is warming up and venturing into blockchain technology. As a market leader and a legend in the field of enterprise application software in the enterprise world, the German multinational company is happy to announce their collaboration with the virtual fintech company Ripple and two financial institutions in their quest to demonstrate how banks can improve their efficiency in conducting cross-border settlements by using blockchain technology.

Working in harmony, SAP and Ripple teams partnered with ATB Financial in designing and developing a proof-of-concept prototype that is based on blockchain technology. The proof-of-concept prototype was used to transfer a test CAD 1,000 US dollars settlement from ATB Financial to ReiseBank.

Going by the SAP media briefing, the settlement, that would have characteristically taken more than three business days to process due to the processes that include reconciling accounts and settling with the counterparty bank was executed end-to-end in a record time of about 10 seconds.

The use of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology for quick, cheap, and efficient international settlements is nothing new. What is making this whole process interesting is the involvement of SAP.

With over 70,000 employees, 310,000 corporate clients globally and an estimated annual revenue of over 20 billion Euros, SAP is the world’s third principal independent software manufacturer based on market cap. The company has long been considered as the embodiment of European quality that has a robust, no-nonsense enterprise computing for large companies.

The Bridge Between Ripple’s Network and SAP, xVia

According to the definition availed by Ripple.com, xVia is one of the Ripple products tailor-made for corporates, financial institutions, banks, and settlement providers who want to transfer money across several platforms using a standard interface.

The product’s easy to understand API requires no software installation and allows users to seamlessly transfer settlements worldwide with transparency into the settlement status and with relevant information, like an invoice, attached to the payment.

Ripple’s Network

Ripple’s network which is also known as RippleNet is a decentralized global system of payment providers, financial institutions, and banks that use Ripple’s distributed financial technology. Ripple’s distributed financial technology provides real-time clearing, messaging, and settlement of monetary payments.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

ERP is a software that deals with business processes and management that allows a company to use a network of integrated applications to manage the organization and assists in automating some back-office functions that are related to technology, human resources, and services.

Oracle ERP Cloud solutions and SAP are some of the well-known examples of ERP software.

xVia as a Bridge

Being API based, xVia can be used to link these ERP software solutions such as SAP to Ripple’s network. xVia can be embedded into banks or relevant ERPs, or any application build by software providers. The everyday activities can then be driven through xVia’s API connection and then later to Ripple’s network allowing seamless software settlements solutions at one go.

In computer programming terms, an API can be defined as a set of clearly defined approaches of communication between various software components.

In summary, xVia can connect companies and firms that operate with ERP software solutions on Ripple’s Network.

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.

The necessity of Gambling License for Bitcoin casinos

In order to make it clean and clear, a reliable online casino will obtain an online gambling license. 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.

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…

Unification

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…
