Wave, the world’s quickly developing crypto installment force to be reckoned with, works with bank controllers and policymakers in a few governments for the selection of advanced installments.
CryptoWhale, a crypto expository firm, in a progression of tweets, as of late talked on the chances of giving XRP the edge, as it works with government controllers on consistence.
The tweet peruses, “Many censure XRP for being ‘excessively unified’, despite the fact that this straightforwardness is the thing that administration like,”
“While different activities are centered around getting a fast group of new speculators to leave trick, Ripple has unobtrusively been working with government organizations to guarantee consistence.”
The only project in the entire market that is pushing for Crypto Regulations is $XRP.
They know that once these regulations are added, it will completely annihilate almost every other altcoin, and make XRP’s demand skyrocket.

At the time of this report, XRP traded at $0.241, with a daily trading volume of $1.55 billion. XRP’s price is down by -2.7% in the last 24 hours. It has a circulating supply of 45 billion coins, and a max supply of 100 billion coins.
Global banks having a relationship with Ripple
Japan-based Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, with assets of more than USD 2.8 trillion, announced in November, 2018 that, in cooperation with Ripple, it would provide an international money transfer service on the payment corridor from Japan to Brazil.
Banks using Ripple include Europe’s banking giant, HSBC Holdings Plc, with assets of about $2.5 trillion, which disclosed in 2019 that it would use the XRP payment solution.
Japan Post Bank with assets of USD 1.9 trillion, Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group, and Mizuho Financial Group with trillions of dollars in assets, also have a close relationship with Ripple Asia. Others having a relationship with Ripple include Banco Santander, Barclays PLC, Royal Bank of Canada, and Toronto-Dominion Bank.
What you should know: Ripple (XRP) plays dual roles as a payment platform and a currency. It is an open-source platform that was created to allow quick and cheap transactions.
In addition, CryptoWhale is not all about talk, as he says he is looking to purchase more XRP, once the correction is over.
“I’ve been involved with XRP since 2013, and there’s a reason it has always held its spot in the top 3 or 5.”
As for those who have written off XRP, CryptoWhale offers the big picture. People often hate on XRP because it has not “moved up for 2.5 years.” However, he says:
- This time range is so tiny in the investment world. Be patient.
- XRP is up by more than 10,000% since 2014.
- It has steadily held its position as top 5 coin for several years.
The Crypto investor, however, understands why XRP has so many haters.

Standard Chartered Bank plans European crypto exchange
Standard Chartered Bank, United Kingdom’s multinational banking and financial services company, plans to launch a cryptocurrency exchange. To achieve this, the bank has partnered with Hong Kong exchange owner, BC Technology Group, to launch a platform for the U.K. and European institutional market.
The bank has long expressed interest in the cryptocurrency market and this is their way of breaking into the space. The project will be handled by Standard Chartered Ventures, the innovation arm of the bank, but no timeline has been given for the launch.
What they are saying
Alex Manson, Head of SC Ventures, in an interview with Reuters, stated, “We have a strong conviction that digital assets are here to stay and will be adopted by the institutional market as a highly relevant asset class.”
Raphael Polansky, the managing director at Boerse Stuttgart Digital Ventures GmbH, mentioned last week that demand for cryptocurrencies from traditional banks will increase over time but in the short run, they may be more reluctant and sceptical especially now that the market has been getting a lot of backlashes from regulatory authorities in various countries.
He stated, “We foresee a lot of strategic moves in the market where traditional banks will invest in crypto custodians instead of building up their own solutions.”
Standard Chartered is now one of the latest mainstream financial players to show interest in cryptocurrency trading. The bank’s longtime rival, HSBC, publicly announced that it had no interest in entering the cryptocurrency market, even as competitors seek to meet institutional and client demand for cryptocurrency-based investments.
What this means
With more traditional banks getting involved in cryptocurrencies, the notion that cryptocurrencies are speculative assets is being dispelled and the value of the crypto market is becoming clearer to investors, especially and with the global inflation rate which is expected to increase.
Standard Chartered share price is trading £505, currently up 0.52%.
Chinese government set to launch Digital Yuan lottery as part of digital currency trial
The Chinese government is set to launch another digital Yuan lottery to help its ongoing digital currency trials, happening in the capital of Beijing. The Beijing Local Financial Supervision and Administration announced yesterday that the government will distribute 40 million digital yuan ($6.2 million) to Beijing residents as part of a test run for the new digital currency.
Starting in June, the program will feature red envelopes, a traditional way of gifting money. Each envelope will have a free wallet containing 200 digital yuan ($31). The red envelopes are intended to be distributed to 200,000 lottery winners. Winners must download an application to use their prizes. The digital yuan can be used at nearly 2,000 designated merchants in the city. To register, consumers can use two banking apps: China’s Mobile Banking App and ICBC Mobile Banking app.
According to the announcement, Beijing residents must apply to participate in the lottery before midnight of June 7, and the winners will be able to spend their prizes by June 20. Users will have the ability to top up their wallets if they want to spend some extra money.
This is not the first giveaway the government has carried out. Multiple digital yuan giveaways were done in other cities such as Shenzhen. The lotteries are intended to help the People’s Bank of China test the country’s digital currency after the central bank launched the first digital Yuan trials in April 2020.
China has reportedly given away as much as 150 million digital Yuan ($23.5 million) to promote digital currency use as part of the trials as of late March. In fact, China’s central bank is looking to allow foreign athletes and visitors to use the digital yuan during the Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022.
