西联汇款或将采用Ripple公司区块链技术

Ripple News援引一位匿名消息人士的说法称,西联汇款可能在2018年某个时候采用Ripple公司的XRP加密货币。此前,《纽约时报》曾在一篇文章批评Ripple的技术。随后, Ripple公司快速对此进行了反击,并称2018年五大汇款公司中将有三家计划在支付流程中使用XRP。其中,西联汇款在两年前就已经开始与Ripple Labs一起进行研究试点。

另外据《福布斯》报道称,在Coinbase表示不会在其交易所提供加密货币的情况下,Ripple的加密货币XRP的价格下跌了25%以上。

CNBC的一份报告显示,Larsen持有总值51.9亿美元的XRP数字货币,同时持有Ripple公司17%的股份。上周四周四(1月4日),XRP达到3.84美元,这使得拉森的股份达到599亿美元。虽然围绕Ripple及其前景存在争议,但Ripple联合创始人兼执行主席Chris Larsen在过去几周加密货币XRP激增之后,已跻身美国五大富豪之列, Facebook首席执行官Mark Zuckerberg是第四富豪,总财富值744亿美元。

XRP在2017年上涨了35,500%,至2.30美元,显示出比比特币和以太坊(Ethereum)更大的收益,去年两者都有强劲的增长。 Ripple正在使用区块链技术来开发超过100家金融机构目前正在使用的支付网络。

Western Union is reportedly gearing up to embrace Ripple’s blockchain technology.

According to a report in Ripple News, citing an unnamed source, Western Union could adopt the XRP technology at some point in 2018. The comments came as a public feud broke out on Twitter after a New York Times article was critical of Ripple technology. Ripple countered the story in a tweet, saying that three of the top five money transfer companies plan to use XRP in payment flows this year. Ripple News noted that Western Union joined a pilot program with Ripple Labs two years ago.

Separately, Forbes reported that the price of Ripple’s cryptocurrency XRP declined more than 25 percent after Coinbase said it would not be offering the cryptocurrency on its exchange, ending a rumor that had been swirling. “As of the date of this statement, we have made no decision to add additional assets to either GDAX or Coinbase. Any statement to the contrary is untrue and not authorized by the company,” Coinbase said in a statement.

While there is controversy surrounding Ripple and its prospects, Chris Larsen, the co-founder and executive chairman of Ripple, is now among the five richest people in the U.S. after a surge in its cryptocurrency, XRP, over the past few weeks.

According to a report in CNBC, citing Forbes, Larsen holds 5.19 billion of Ripple’s XRP digital coin and a 17 percent stake in the company. With XRP hitting $3.84 on Thursday (Jan. 4), that puts Larsen’s stake at around $59.9 billion. As a result, Larsen is currently the fifth-richest person in the U.S., pushing out Oracle head Larry Ellison, who is worth $58.4 billion and was fifth on the Forbes 400 list. Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive of Facebook, is the fourth-richest, worth $74.4 billion.

XRP jumped 35,500 percent to $2.30 in 2017, showing a larger gain than bitcoin and Ethereum, both of which had a strong surge last year. Ripple is using blockchain technology to develop a payment network that more than 100 financial institutions are currently using.
