South Korea Launches Remittance App Using Ripple’s Blockchain Technology For The First Time

One of the biggest South Korean crypto exchanges, Coinone, has presented a new web service and a remittance app called Cross. It uses RippleNet for providing faster and cheaper payment services for citizens of the Kingdom of Thailand and the Republic of the Philippines.

To release this payment service, Coinone Transfer, a subsidiary of Coinone, utilized Ripple’s blockchain technology, as well as Siam Commercial Bank (Thailand) and Cebuana Lhuillier (Philippines).

Ripple emphasized that Cross does “not rely on traditional banking rails,” i.e. comparing to other remittance options, Cross plays in an absolutely different league.

The press-release also stated that South Korean remittance services had been limited due to high fee for overseas transactions. Cross, by contrast, provides a total transaction fee of 1%. Moreover, it offers “bulletproof security” for customers.

Samsung Galaxy 10 Will Not Have an Inbuilt Crypto Wallet

After the South Korean electronic devices giant Samsung filed three patent applications for crypto and blockchain-related software, the rumours started that the company is planning to incorporate a cold crypto wallet in one of its main upcoming releases – Samsung Galaxy 10.

Samsung’s cryptocurrency service will essentially have two parts. A cold wallet for saving cryptocurrency and a crypto wallet for transfers,” claimed a Samsung news site.

Nevertheless, the official representatives of the company shared in a private talk with the Cointelegraph that the following news were no more than speculation and gossip. Thus, we can now be sure: although, Samsung is actually researching and probably planning to incorporate crypto and blockchain into its products, there will be no crypto wallet in the phone Galaxy 10.

Facebook Is Once Again Looking for Blockchain Specialists

Being a social media giant, Facebook could not turn a blind eye to blockchain. It actually launched a whole department devoted to the research of this technology and was looking for a manager for this department some time ago.

However, none of the representatives of Facebook have revealed any detail as to what they are planning to do with blockchain, which caused a wave of rumors starting from the assumption that Facebook is going to release its own cryptocurrency to the one claiming that Facebook was working on a blockchain network, planning to outrun Ethereum.

The truth is still unclear, but the fact is: Facebook is definitely working on something. It has listed 5 vacancies for blockchain developers on its official site. Considering the fact that it is Facebook and also the rate of salaries for blockchain specialists, there surely will be a huge fight for these 5 jobs. We remind you:

SWIFT Created A New Payment System To Protect Blockchain and FinTechs Provided By Ripple, JP Morgan, and Transferwise

SWIFT has announced in its latest press-release that it decided to launch a new payment service – Global Payment Initiative (GPI), which is still in pilot version. The system is aimed at combating threats that bring harm to blockchain and other fintech solutions of such institutions like Ripple, JP Morgan, and Transferwise.

The main target of the pilot is “to build the foundation of a new integrated and interactive service that will significantly improve efficiencies in the payments process and which will ultimately be made available to all 10,000 banks across the SWIFT network.”

The GPI tests were conducted in October to try cross-border payments with banks in Thailand, China, Australia, and Singapore. The trial showed that using GPI-system payments could be carried out almost instantly.

According to SWIFT, the pilot GPI system starts working in the first half of 2019. It will cooperate with 15 financial institutions, including Bank of China, JP Morgan, CitiGroup and others. The service provides full transparency to payment beneficiaries and originators.

New Trend: Why Companies Replacing the Term “Blockchain” to “DLT”

Due to harmful hype to innovative chain of transaction blocks, some companies use “DLT” instead of “Blockchain”, which stands for Distributed Ledger Technology.

The term replacing begins with that some organisations, in their advertising and informational campaigns, decided to change the word “Blockchain” to “DLT”. Such a move connected with the hype about the blockchain technology. Therefore the companies, in order to take some of the negative from them,went on that kind of cunning. In this regard, an independent analytical company Forrester Research has made their own investigation.

Company analytics point out, that “Blockchain” is a trend-word of crypto industry, which many crypto projects abused. The word is used even when the technology isn’t used in the product. The usage of “Blockchain” for the hype invalidate the technology itself.  Since, the blockchain in general is associated with cryptocurrency, when the company which are not related to the world of cryptocurrency, decided to go away from the naming technology and started to use the word “DLT” , in order not to associate their activity with the digital money.

Meanwhile, the word “Blockchain” overtakes the word “Cryptocurrency” by frequency of requests in the world search, according to the Google Trends.
