Ripple (XRP) Stability Attractive for Governments and Financial Institutions
Ripple solutions are superior and financial
institutions all over the world are willing to adopt. This is likely because of
stability offered by XRP, the native coin.
Ripple’s Stability Makes It Favorable
Since the inception of Bitcoin over a
decade ago, the yardstick measured against cryptocurrencies is their volatility
in price and their lack of balance. For most governments and financial
institutions, this factor has been the primary reason why they are yet to adopt
XRP now seems to have achieved
stability and has seen central banks and other financial entities line up to
make use of the cryptocurrency and its remittance technology. This fact was
acknowledged in a tweet by Ripple XRP Crypto which stated that “#Ripple #XRP is very stable and for that reason, governments and
financial institutions are keeping a close eye on it.” According to the
tweet, XRP which was established in 2012 has a five-year record of stable
technology and governance that makes it ideal for institutional and enterprise
In May last year, the World Bank Group revealed that it had been impressed by the innovative power
of cryptocurrencies as they have put some competitive pressure on cross-border
payment networks. The group acknowledged that the most successful cryptos would
be linked with legal tender and issued by central banks.
Ripple (XRP) is starting to fulfill
those roles, which is why financial institutions are lining up to use their
technologies. According to XRPCryptowolf, there are roughly 40 to 50 central banks that are working
with Ripple at the moment alongside the World Bank and the IMF.
Banks Interested In Blockchain
More banks are researching and actively
experimenting with blockchain tech in a bid to understand the technology and if
possible issue a CBDC (central bank digital currency), according to a new
report by the World Economic Forum.
Ashley Lannquist, the primary author
of the report and a project lead in blockchain and DLT at the World Economic
Forum, revealed that 44 central banks are actively looking to blockchain as a
shifting technology. She stated that “Pilot
and experimentation work thus far on this subject has yielded some mixed
results, some optimistic results, and the summary of where we are right now is
that central banks are proceeding with caution, yet highly involved in research,”
Despite the interest from these
banks, Lannquist noted that most of those banks have to navigate some technical
and policy problems in the sector. She is however optimistic that central banks
would issue CBDCs in a few years from now.
According to PandaRippleXRP, the stability of Ripple over the past few years has seen it
now focused on boosting adoption. “What #Ripple has been more focused on these
days is promoting the adoption of its solutions and XRP has been enjoying more
listings, and it’s been used by more financial entities to send money across
borders,” the XRP enthusiast added.
Ripple Providing Tough Competition To SWIFT
Ripple has been clear about its
objective over the past few years, with its primary aim being to replace SWIFT
as the dominant cross-border payment system in the world. The company has
rolled out products such as xRapid, xCurrent, and others that are geared at
making it easier for banks and other financial institutions to carry out
cross-border transactions. XRP has started making progress in its bid as more
banks and commercial entities line up to make use of its products.
