The Ripple (XRP) Powered Santander App Is Amazingly FAST

Published

on

Ripple

The team at Ripple (XRP) have provided a video demonstration of a live transaction on the Santander OnePayFX app. In the video shown by the Ripple team, we see the user having an easy time navigating through the payment options between the USD and the Euro. The user then proceeds to select the recipient of the payment who happens to be in the United States. The sender is in the U.K who then proceeds in selecting ApplePay’s platform to complete the payment. He selects his Santander Debit card and the transaction is then complete at the touch of a button and in a few seconds.

The entire video is embedded below for your viewership:

This demonstration proves what Ripple fans and HODLers have known all along; that XRP transactions are fast (3.3 seconds), secure and cheap ($0.0004 per transaction) on the blockchain. The OpenPayFX comes at a time when bank customers live a busy lifestyle and want banking options on the go rather than queuing at a bank or ATM. OpenPayFX does just that and leads the way in terms of fintech solutions on the blockchain. The App is currently only available on the Apple iPhone platform.

It is, therefore, no surprise that the Santander Bank has chosen Ripple solutions for 50% of the bank’s international transactions.

Ripple has proven once again that it has solved the remittance industry problems by making them faster, cheaper and secure on the Ripple ledger. As the Ripple solutions continue being adopted by banks and financial institutions, it might be safe to conclude that XRP might eventually become the global reserve currency for central banks.

Current market analysis indicates XRP is still trying to get a footing in this volatile times of crypto trading. The coin is currently trading at $0.612 at the moment of writing this and down less than a percentage point in the last 24 hours. Bitcoin (BTC) still continues to dominate the market at its current price of $7,420.

Boca Raton, Florida, 27th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

Collaborating with Other Cryptocurrencies, META 1 Tackles Injustice and Human Rights 

META 1 Coin Trust has announced plans to identify, research and document instances of governmental overreach in cryptocurrency cases globally, as part of its ongoing efforts to advance human rights and individual freedom. 

According to Robert P. Dunlap, Executive Trustee of META 1 Coin Trust, “The malicious attacks on crypto projects globally by overzealous government agencies must be documented and publicized to protect the individual liberties of META 1 Coin holders, as well as issuers and holders of other cryptocurrencies.” He added, “The decentralized, non-jurisdictional reality of crypto has left government agencies often unable to fully litigate cases and the general public should not have to continue suffering due to excessive overreach as agencies clamor to save face.”

META 1 Coin Trust is led by Robert P. Dunlap and Nicole Bowdler, who are both committed to pushing back against unimpeded global persecution of cryptocurrencies. By calling attention to years of organized efforts by government agencies to specifically target cryptocurrency projects, their hope is that the public will see and demand an end to these unjust violations of individual liberty. 

Specific grievances which motivated this initiative include grave concerns over government agencies’ obstruction of individuals’ livelihoods, defamation of character, and libelous false accusations which could tarnish the names of individuals for years to come, long after legal actions…

TEL AVIV, Israel, 13th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

MarketAcross, a world leader in blockchain public relations and marketing services, is pleased to announce the launch of Chainwire, an automated press release distribution service which provides guaranteed coverage and in-depth reports. Chainwire will be a one-stop-shop for the distribution of press releases in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. The launch marks the first time that advertisers can reach leading publications in the crypto media with the click of a button. 

While most industries have some kind of PR newswire service, the cryptocurrency sector has become a victim of its own rapid pace of growth over recent years. Since the ICO boom of 2017, there has been a proliferation of blockchain and crypto-focused projects, exchanges, investment firms, and marketing agencies, along with niche news and informational content sites. 

However, the infrastructure to connect this complex ecosystem has been slow to come up to speed, meaning that existing newswire services don’t reach their target audience. It’s estimated that one in five people own cryptocurrencies, so there is currently a significant missed opportunity to reach a massive global readership. 

As a newswire service dedicated to the crypto and blockchain space, Chainwire aims to address this gap. Press releases are distributed to leading publications, offering guaranteed coverage to reach audiences worldwide. The system is integrated with publishers and blogs, enabling accurate reporting via a user-friendly dashboard. It also…
