Think about solutions, not about problems. Even better, think about a way of doing things that prevents any problem at all, that’s how Ripple works. At this point in time, we know some of the world’s most important issues: overpopulation, and ecological crisis, but we have the means to fight them. It’s decentralization and blockchain tech.
New financial technology is bringing previously disenfranchised people to the market for the first time in history. In India alone, this technology will bring a billion people to the market in the next five years. That’s why financial institutions must adopt this new technology. It’s powerful; it’s almost cost-free. And cryptocurrencies are at the heart of this tech.
The internet created distrust when it started as a general service, just as cryptocurrencies do now. It created skepticism, but it also created value. That is the current situation with alt-coins. Among those coins, Ripple bears mentioning.
Ripple’s XRP has been a tool for international transactions in ways that were just not suspected, even in Sci-Fi terms. It’s become essential in the fintech world. That’s why Ripple keeps winning big and performing amazingly.
Something about Ripple
Ripple’s success is linked to the painless experience it brings to international financial transactions, using the blockchain’s power. This allows fintech services to be quick, cheap, safe and cost-effective. That is empowering banks and remittance firms to use Ripple’s XRP to increase service quality as they cut down on costs.
Ripple has offices in every important city in the world, and they have more than 100 relevant fintech customers.
Ripple is growing blazing-fast
Oliver Twist asked for more. Ripple is doing that as well, and it’s getting it. Ripple’s acquiring big and small partners who understand how their currency is ideal for international transactions that are reliable, quick and cheap. Ripple thinks they will have half the world’s banks as partners over the next five years. They could be proven right.
Many coins are running away from China. Ripple is embracing it. It’s working for them because they emphasize international transactions. Not just China. The incredibly rich Persian Gulf countries are going for Ripple as well, increasing its demand and value.
xVia’s increasing customer base
Xia is one of Ripple’s signature tools. It’s unique, it’s reliable, and it’s swift. And financial institutions the world over are adopting it. It’s awesome. It allows banks and financial services everywhere in the world (even in emerging economies) to perform international transactions cheaply and in no time at all. Xia’s services include an API you can use from anywhere in a blink of an eye.
Ripple recently announced five new partners (big players in Asia and the UK) that will be adopting Ripple’s platform to do transactions.
Ripple and Santander
Banco Santander is the 37th biggest corporation in the world, and it’s been declared the world’s best bank. It’s weird, most of the world’s best banks are usually Swiss or German, and this one is Spanish, but that’s how things stand right now. And Santander’s app is built on Ripple’s technology. It’s good, it’s reliable (this humble author uses it all the time) it works in most of the world’s countries, and it’s Ripple-based.
Santander’s One Pay FX can deliver European payments on the same day or the following day outside Europe. It’s quicker than Paypal and other fintech options.
“One Pay FX uses blockchain-based technology to provide a fast, simple and secure way to transfer money internationally — offering value, transparency, and the trust and service customers expect from a bank like Santander,” Ana Botín, executive chairman of Banco Santander declared shortly after it was unveiled.
“Transfers to Europe can be made on the same day, and we are aiming to deliver instant transfers across several markets by the summer.”

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…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
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.”
Mr. Yamagata has been…
