  • Kitao said that XRP has the potential to be a universal standard digital currency as well as money in due time.
  • Ripple price is retesting the immediate resistance at $0.48 but the Bulls have their eyes glued on $0.50.

The blockchain conference held in Japan saw Ripple (XRP) reap most of the benefits. The CEO and chairman of SBI Holdings Yoshitaka Kitao reckoned that Ripple (XRP) adoption into the economy in future is inevitable. Kitao said that XRP has the potential to be a universal standard digital currency as well as money in due time.

His comments were based on the current uptake of Ripple’s solutions by banks, firms, businesses and payment processing companies. Ripple is working to ensure that its technology is adopted as a standard payment platform around the world especially when it comes to international money transfer and remittance services. Ripple solutions offer fast reliable and affordable international money transfer. With Ripple, transactions time is brought down to a few seconds as opposed to the conventional methods that take a few days to complete a transaction.
