- European Union call for instant cross border remittance and Ripple will get top chances
- Healthcare and Edtech based Eng. Company partner Ripple
- Banesco Panama plans to roll out Ripple technology in Panama, Spain, & 4 others
In a bid to call for an interoperable cross-border network for consumers and businesses in Europe, the European commission hosted a session in Brussels to support an existing initiative shouldering the development and availability of cross-border instant payments in the province.
Co-hosted by the European Central Bank, the event was fashioned to help identify ways of overcoming obstacles preventing instantaneous cross-border remittance.
This is coming just weeks after the European Central Bank in an occasional paper titled: “Crypto-Assets: Implications for financial stability, monetary policy, and payments and market infrastructures” branded Ripple (XRP) among three other cryptocurrencies as most important in terms of usage as well as business model diversity.
Although some claimed that the research does not represent ECB’s view, it is clear that if the European Commission remains keen on its aim to bring instant remittance service to its province, it would have to leverage blockchain technology, and Ripple is sure the option to go for.
Ripple has so far proven the potency of its technology to a number of top banks around the world, thus making it the best viable solution in transferring fund across the border in the remittance industry.
