Ripple (XRP) is gaining stability, and in the process – it’s getting more recognized. Reports say that it might enter five new partnerships soon.
The latest reports claim that Ripple (XRP) is getting more and more recognized on the territory of Asia, as well as the EU. Some of the news from these areas even claim that five additional companies are planning to enter a partnership with this digital currency. The plan seems to be to tap into Ripple’s xVia API, and make a well-defined, new corridor that will be used for sending funds throughout RippleNet.
The companies are getting serious
The next couple of days have already been planned out for the payment originators, and they include multiple tests of RippleNet’s potential, as well as its xVia tool. By sending their money through Ripple, the companies will significantly reduce the cost of their future transactions, but at the same time, they’ll achieve much better speeds. Not only that, but the payment traffic’s end-to-end visibility will also increase.
The reach of the altcoin is constantly getting bigger, and the team behind its development is constantly working to make it even bigger every day. Their efforts are what allows cryptos like Ripple to expand their influence, and take advantage of the new businesses that wish to expand to the world of digital currencies.
Asheesh Birla, the senior vice president for product at Ripple, stated that remittance companies will be able to reach out to their users much better through xVia’s potential. According to Birla, the companies’ customers often run into the same problem, which is the fact that they need to create connections to networks and banks around the globe. This is a long process, and not at all cheap, at that.
Birla claims :
xVia enables them to grow their overall market share by reaching new customers in new markets, easier than ever before.
The API connection, which is a standard one at this point, will not only lead to the significant increase in the efficiency rate but will also reduce the level of failure.
The five companies are not the only ones enjoying RippleNet
If the reports are true, then the five mentioned companies will be an excellent new addition to the RippleNet. However, they wouldn’t be the first ones to have done so. Back in February, Zip Remit, which is based in Canada, as well as Beetech from Brazil, have also published their intent to connect to RippleNet through xVia. Both of those are remittance companies, just like the five who got the same idea.
Ripple’s popularity and success are increasing at an unbelievable rate. It is almost as if there are no other altcoins on the market. Entering partnerships and various collaborations is something that is necessary for the altcoin. According to Ripple’s CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, if things keep going the way they are now, Ripple might enter partnerships with more than half of the biggest banks around the world within the next five years.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
