Exclusive: Singapore to develop Ripple (XRP)-powered invoice trading platform

According to a recent report by Global Market Insights, the blockchain market in the Asian Pacific region has seen significant progressed, thanks to the upsurge in the number of investments in blockchain-based firms. The report also made revelations that the market is expected to hit over 16 billion US dollars in the next few years, likely by 2025.

Back in 2016, the number of investments that were made in blockchain-based startups (including Ripple as it got in the game in 2013) was approximately over 130 deals. At the time, those deals brought over 545 million US dollars to the market, laying a good foundation for the market to grow by over 50 percent the following year, which saw the market gaining over 1 billion US dollars from such deals.

The increase in funds is a sign of the acceptance and continuous development of new technologies, that strive to retain and grow the number of investors in the blockchain. As a result of this, blockchain technology continues to witness a significant increase in adoption, even from traditional industries. Take the fruity relationships of Ripple (XRP) with giant financial institutions such as Banco Santander, for example.

One of the products that are keen not to be left behind in the front of innovation is the Digital Ledger Technology, which has been experiencing large growths in adoption levels. This does include not only large firms but also some of the upcoming SMEs in the world of business. Some of the giant companies that are embracing digital ledger technology into their operations include IBM, Amazon, Abra, Microsoft, Earthport, Blockstream, Asta Salotions, Bacoor, Coinbase, Blockstream, Bloq, Digital Asset Holding, BTL Group, Chain, SAP, BitSE, R3, and Ripple among many other companies.

Invoice Financing

Invoice financing is a well-known business function in both small and medium companies that are in burning need of cash. For those who might not be aware, invoice financing is the process that involves businesses trading off their invoices to third-party financers in exchange for instant funds. These invoices are traded off to financers at discounted figures which allows them to later cash with the debtors to get the full amount. It has been a different idea from Ripple blockchain as of now, but a good one, we must agree.

For example, a person who is running their business is supposed to be paid 15,000 US dollars from its debtors, but the date of payment is about a month away, but the person urgently needs cash to purchase a new machine. The person can sell off the 15,000 US dollars’ worth of invoices to a financer to get an instant 10,000 US dollars in cash. The financer can later claim the entire sum of 15,000 US dollars from the debtor creating a win-win situation for both parties. Invoice financing is big in the European Union and the US but is steadily growing in the Asian Pacific region.

Singapore Authorities Considering Ripple Blockchain-based Invoice Trading Platform

Throughout the world, blockchain technology is making data management more efficient while ensuring security and interoperability is core in their operations. Governments of countries such as Singapore are making headways in adopting this new technology by making numerous policy changes and initiatives to gain a better understanding of blockchain technology and to benefit from it maximally.

In Singapore, DBS Bank, Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), and Standard Chartered Bank developed a proof of concept for their blockchain-based invoice trading platform. The platform uses distributed ledger technology of Ripple (XRP) to support the project for tracking invoices, reducing invoice duplication risks, backing loans to suppliers while maintaining the confidentiality of their customers.

Subsequently, the authority intends to develop a platform that will allow banks and financial institutions to convert invoices into virtual assets on a distributed ledger (of course on Ripple blockchain). Considering that participants are allocated a cryptographic identity, privacy is maintained, while the information concerning the status of the invoices seeking funds is accessible to all concerned users.

The Ripple-based project by Singapore authorities, which is yet to be given a name is predicted to be an open ecosystem that is going to allow neutral third parties to participate and verify the legitimacy of a trade document being financed.

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.

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.

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…
