Moneynetint, a UK-based provider of foreign exchange services for the corporate sector has integrated and deployed decentralized payments using Ripple blockchain network RippleNet.

Based in London with a focus on payment services for corporate clients, Moneynetint revealed an ongoing collaboration with San Francisco-based blockchain industry giant Ripple on Tuesday.

The payments platform, which provides cross-border money transfers and currency exchange services, said it has completed the integration phase with Ripple and has now fully deployed the blockchain solution with payments received from other RippleNet members elsewhere, in a press release shared with CCN.

RippleNet is Ripple’s enterprise blockchain network with over 100 members including banks, payment providers and remittance operators globally.

Ripple’s director of account management Nadeem Ladki lauded the addition of the UK-based firm to RippleNet due to its ability to facilitate payouts in Israeli fiat.

He stated:

“Their ability to now facilitate payouts in Israeli New Shekel – in addition to Euros – on behalf of other RippleNet members is another big step in expanding the overall network. By leveraging Ripple’s blockchain technology, Moneynetint will now be able to simplify and reduce the FX conversion rates for their customers, increase the speed of settlement and offer services to new markets that would otherwise have been too difficult or too costly to reach in the past.”

RippleNet gains a member capable of delivering payments in Israeli shekel.

The blockchain is undoubtedly Ripple’s flagship product, enabling near-instant money transfers with on-demand liquidity and end-to-end tracking and transparency on a blockchain. As a member of the enterprise blockchain network, a financial institution would – in theory – be able to settle transactions and send money to any of the 100(+) members internationally.

Traditional payment rails (SWIFT) used by the global banking system routinely take several days to settle a transfer at a higher cost due to more participants in a transaction, including the use of international nostro accounts.

For Moneynetint, membership in RippleNet has its own perks, such as establishing banking relationships that could otherwise take years to build.

Moneynetint chief executive Yishay Trif said:

“The processes of interfacing and approval between financial institutions, previously taking months or even years are now significantly reduced to a matter of days to a few weeks.”

Elsewhere, another London-based foreign exchange brokerage has already integrated Ripple’s lesser-known xRapid platform for money transfers. In a marked contrast, Currencies Direct is using native cryptocurrency token XRP for remittances, labelling it a “game changer” for the remittance industry following a successful trial between North America and Europe earlier this year.

Bitcoin Cash Price Gets Skewed due to Exchange Trickery

A lot of confusing action is taking place where the Bitcoin Cash price is concerned. Although its actual decline in value is quite obvious for everyone to see, the real price of BCH is not necessarily what people can see on Coinmarketcap. This is primarily because numerous exchanges treat BCHABC as Bitcoin Cash already despite nothing being decided in terms of which chain will be the longest. Bitcoin Cash Value Fluctuates Heavily Depending on where traders look at, the price of Bitcoin Cash will be either close to the $400 level or down to $250-ish. That is quite a large gap between prices, yet one that is also very easy to explain. Bitcoin Cash, as people knew it before the fork, no longer exists. Most professional exchanges have also retired this price ticker, for the time being. As the hash war rages on, there are still a lot of unknown factors waiting to be addressed. Despite this ongoing kerfuffle, there is a net 5.76% decrease in the Bitcoin Cash price, and a 5.4% decline over Bitcoin. More specifically, that is what CoinMarketCap reports at this time, although this is not necessarily the case whatsoever. In fact, some exchanges are clearly jumping the gun by labeling BCHABC as BCH and thus dragging the Bitcoin Cash price down a bit more. Exchanges currently engaging in this activity include Bittrex and Coinex, neither of which plays a big role of importance when it comes to trading. However, based on the current value of BCH on Bitfinex and Gate.io, it seems a similar incident is taking place. One also has to keep in mind Bitcoin Cash was getting battered ahead of the network split as well. Most exchanges have halted trading of BCH indefinitely, primarily because the currency no longer exists. It is evident either BCHABC or BCHSV will take over that name in the future, but nothing has been decided at this point. As such, any trading referring to just “Bitcoin Cash” or “BCH” should be avoided, as most users can never be sure which currency is effectively being traded under this name. All of this skews the picture pertaining to Bitcoin Cash altogether. Coinmarketcap reports there is still $392m in trading volume for BCH, even though that is virtually impossible right now. With so many exchanges freezing deposits and withdrawals, it is evident actual BCH trading is no longer possible whatsoever. Virtually all platforms have deposits of BCHSV and BCHABC frozen as well, which only makes this market trend more confusing. It is safe to say the entire network split has been a bit of a mess first and foremost. In the case of Bitcoin Cash itself, that name will – under the current circumstances- not be used across exchanges for much longer. Instead, the two separate camps need to be treated as such first and foremost. Until things settle down – with might not necessarily happen anytime soon – the Bitcoin Cash price itself is pretty much irrelevant for most traders and speculators.
