A new energy-backed cryptocurrency dubbed PDX Coin has indicated it is using Ripple xCurrent and XRP via xRapid.
PDX Coin is a petroleum supported digital currency, legally compliant and backed by independently certified recoverable oil and gas reserves.
Although PDX protocol runs on Ethereum network, owing to the real-time nature of the Ripple Transaction Protocol (RTXP), PDX says it may license and make use of Ripple’s proprietary tool “xCurrent”, which is efficient for universal inter-bank rapid messaging to achieve global transfers and payment for seamless and fast transaction.
In its latest whitepaper, the team behind the digital currency says PDX may decide to deploy Ripple’s proprietary “XRapid” platform to make exchange of fiat currencies with PDX cheap and rapid in real time.
The PDX coin is designed to give organisations and individuals the privilege to make use of a transparent digital currency supported by independently certified crude oil and natural gas reserves in the ground, and either in production, or ready for development.
While the innovation awaits formal unveiling, the team behind the idea is well-abreast of the wonderful performances of Ripple tools like xCurrent and xRapid.
