The Euro Exim Bank, the very first bank to use XRP, is planning to use the platform’s xCurrent to initiate a finance system similar to SWIFT’s. The system will have the ability to embed instructions regarding trade finance into xCurrent’s messaging system.

The idea is, apart from just the payment instruction, what if we use the message to transmit a trade finance instruction directly to a counterparty? It could be a letter of credit or a performance bond. Technically you are able to transmit the whole of that message via xCurrent.

Report: XRP Now Accounts For 3% Of All Payments Made Through CoinGate

XRP has been touted as one crypto that could penetrate deep into the global financial market and achieve high adoption rate in the coming years. For one, XRP has been listed on various crypto exchanges and has achieved fair popularity in the market. It’s now the 3rd largest cryptocurrency by market cap. As is a fact, one factor that drives the dominance of a crypto like Bitcoin is its high usage. XRP has been trying hard to achieve such kind of wide usage. A recent report by CoinGate suggests that the number 3 crypto might as well be on its way to stardom. According to a tweet by CoinGate on 23rd August 2019, XRP has now achieved a cool 3% share in the total number of payments sent via the exchange.  Over 19% Increase Image Via Twitter | @coingatecom Going on, CoinGate announced that compared to the figures recorded in May, XRP’s usage in payments made through the exchange is confirmed to have shot up by around 19.64%. That’s a pretty impressive move considering that the market has been relatively on a pendulum, with XRP price hiking and then dropping back to the $0.27 range.  However, there are those who don’t feel the cited data is correct, especially since it doesn’t put into account the newly activated accounts. Still, it’s agreeable that a 19% increase in usage is a credible achievement over such a short time-frame.  RippleNet Counts Too This is primarily due to Ripple’s efforts in propping up the crypto and entering partnerships with financial institutions that want to use or could later want to use XRP as a base currency for payments. Currently, Ripple has attracted over 200 financial institutions that are now part of its RippleNet.  The company is also signing in around 3 new clients every week. If this trend continues and more people use XRP on exchanges and banks use it for cross-border transactions, demand could increase and thereby impact the price upwards.

Only 5% Winners: Investors Disappointed Following Perlin’s Binance Launchpad Lottery Results

Binance’s token launch platform, the Binance Launchpad, announced earlier today the lottery results of its most recent token sale – Perlin. Even though 86 million PERL tokens were distributed to the lucky draw winners, there was a slight wave of disappointment among the participants, as the vast majority of them didn’t win a single ticket. Out of the total tickets, only 5.46% of tickets won. Simple math: as the maximum tickets per account was 10. The average account didn’t win a single ticket. CZ: Hard To Please Everyone CZ, the CEO of Binance, had responded to some Binance disappointed users claims reminding that also when trying out other distribution models, people were disappointed. “Hard to please everyone,” according to his latest tweet. it’s about 5% on a ticket basis, many people hold 5 tickets, avg winning on a user level is about 20% or so, I think. Still the 80% that didn’t win will complain. Previously, the 80% would win a small ($30) allocation, they complain it’s too small. Hard to please everyone. — CZ Binance (@cz_binance) August 25, 2019 Binance’s Ever-Changing Rules The rules for receiving a chance to invest in Binance Luanchpad’s Initial Exchange Offerings keep changing. Earlier this month, Binance held an IEO event for WINk, following significant adjustments to their Launchpad’s lottery draws. While the amount of winning tickets now was reduced substantially from the previous one, Binance also increased the period of holding BNB ahead of the IEO to 15 days, as well as the personal BNB capacity to hold for the maximum amount of tickets – from 250 to 500 per user. The company is set to increase the holding period to 30 days for the upcoming Binance Launchpad IEO. Those modifications meant that the number of participants winning a ticket for Perlin’s IEO was unquestionably lower than with WINK’s IEO. With WINK’s launch, the winning tickets totaled in 200,000 winning tickets, each ticket worth $30. So to sum it up – more winners, and as could be concluded following WINk IEO, less reward. The rules for PERL’s IEO had more resemblance with Elrond’s IEO a few months back, where the number of winning tickets was 10,833 or 11.07% of all participants, while with WINK the percentage for winning tickets was 23.87. Elrond’s IEO had returned 13x to its investors, while WINk’s average ROI was a lot less – 3-4x on average. Perlin Network IEO Stats The ticket claiming process for PERLIN’s IEO ended at 06:00 UTC on the 25th of August and 40,695 users were allowed to enter the lottery, having a total amount of 245,602 tickets. Two hours later Binance announced results: there were a total of 10,940 winners, holding 13,400 tickets. Each winning ticket buys 6,457.5 PERL for the equivalent value of BNB, meaning that 1 PERL sold for a price of  0.07743 USD or 0.00287844 BNB (using a BNB price of 26.90 as Binance previously announced). PERL will open for trading on Binance on the 26th of August at noon UTC. Perlin’s mission is to help develop dApps requiring immense amounts of disk space and computing resources by a scalable DAG-based protocol and the company has secured numerous strategic partnerships, as their CEO told CryptoPotato.
