Exclusive: Ripple (XRP) to be exhibited at SWIFT’s Sibos conference

The Sibos 2018 is in session. It’s the world’s most important conference on financial services. This year’s theme is “Enabling the digital economy,” and one of the options included is none other than Ripple. This is important as it’s bringing blockchain technology as a mainstream option for banks and financial institutions which are, traditionally, prone to be very conservative and to reject changes in their way of doing things.

The conference’s organizers have chosen four themes to flesh out the way in which financial institutions must adapt to the new digital world regarding services:

  • The way in which data, artificial intelligence, and robotics are pushing services and innovation forward, and how they are forcing for business models to renew.
  • The new technologies and paradigms that can tackle financial crime by sharing relevant information.
  • Facing the challenges posed by cybersecurity in the new digital economy.
  • Adaptation to the world’s new geopolitical and regulatory priorities.
  • Sibos is being held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) at Sydney, Australia. It’s the third time the conference is held in this city, which is a good scenario for Sibos because this is a city that combines energy, innovation, and infrastructure. It’s the 40th event of its kind, and Swift organizes it.

Here’s the exciting thing: SWIFT is the currently dominant system for international money transfers and payments. Should you want to send money from the USA to, say France (or Mexico, or Indonesia), the operation would be done using SWIFT, and this is the institution that sponsors this conference.

Ripple is trying to take over SWIFT‘s business by using a combination of blockchain technology, partnerships with many of the world’s banks (called RippleNet), Ripple’s native software platforms (such as xRapid) and Ripple’s native cryptocurrency, called XRP.

Inside and outside of the cryptosphere there’s been a lot of skepticism about Ripple’s obsessive mission to insert itself into the traditional financial system. Traditional banks do not trust cryptocurrencies because they are very conservative and the crypto market has been very volatile since its inception.

On the crypto community side, the skepticism is rooted in Bitcoin’s original mission, as stated by Satoshi himself: to get rid of all fiat currencies and the world’s financial system, so for crypto purists, Ripple is working for the enemy, so to speak.

In any case, the fact that Ripple has been chosen for inclusion in a mainstream event such as this is good news not just for that project but also for all crypto-coins. It means that the world, at long last, is paying attention to all the benefits that any traditional business (banks, in this particular case) can get from adopting the blockchain.

It’s a potential recognition from the banks that the world is changing and that they must come up with new strategies that can deal with the modern world’s needs. If there’s one thing for you to take away from this piece of Ripple news, it’s quite simple: cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology, and the crypto world are not a weird hobby for nerds anymore.

The world is paying attention, and some of the world’s most influential industries are incorporating it into their business model. This is great news for the crypto community as real-world usefulness can only create demand for XRP and other tokens and that will drive the market up.

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. 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.

There is a difference between Bitcoin and Bitcoin gambling legality. There are countries…

How to Reach 100% 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…

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…
