With so much happening around Ripple, its enthusiasts cannot wait for Ripple’s SWELL 2019. The 2018 SWELL event had its keynote speech delivered by none other than the charismatic 42nd commander-in-chief of the United States.
Bill Clinton, in a not so crypto evangelist manner, waxed lyrical about the virtues of blockchain. He, alongside Gene Sperling, his former economic advisor delved into the growth of blockchain technology and crypto, with Clinton calling for sobriety in the area of regulation.
However, the SWELL 2019 shindig has a fantastic host of speakers lined up including the CFO Cuallix, Nicolas Palacios and Kanchan Kumar the Remitr CEO. InstraReM’s Co-Founder and CEO Prajit Nanu will be present alongside his peer Daumantas Dvilinskas, the TransferGo CEO. The event will be held in early October 2019, and Ripple is expected to once again go all out for payments, blockchain, and digital asset adoption.
Ahead of SWELL, XRP Landscape is Remarkable
The faster and affordable payments through blockchain champion has been winning in the remittance’s arena. Ripple has now collaborated with MoneyGram, purchasing a $50million worth stake in the money transfer giant.
Ripple will purchase Western Union’s shares at $4.10 for its first $30 million investments. Western Union has the option of selling Ripple another $20 million worth of shares at an equal price. MoneyGram, in turn, is adopting xRapid and will, therefore, use XRP for its operations.
