Ripple’s Plans for 2019 and Beyond

At the beginning of 2019, Ripple declared that the company reached more than 200 customers around the world. In a quest of reducing the cost of international financial transactions, Ripple has partnered with industry giants such as American Express and Bank of America. In addition, its token XRP is one of the most reputable tokens in crypto space. It’s market cap was $12 865 182 318, placing XRP just behind Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Yes, Ripple’s achievements have been quite impressive so far. And there is no doubt that its plans for the future are equally ambitious. So let’s take a look at some of them.

Ripple’s University Blockchain Research Initiative (UBRI) expansion in Asia

In June 2018, the company launched a global University Blockchain Research Initiative (UBRI), in order to improve “academic research, technical development, and innovation in blockchain, cryptocurrency, and digital payments.”
