• Ripple announced its acceptance to the Central Bank of Ireland’s list of registered Virtual Asset Service Providers.
  • Earlier this year, Ripple received a full Major Payments Institution license from Singapore's MAS, and the Dubai FSA approved XRP’s use by licensed institutions.
  • XRP price could attempt a recovery to $0.66 in response to the rising usage of the token.

Ripple’s Chief Legal Officer, Stuart Alderoty, said on Wednesday that the cross-border payment remittance firm got the approval to operate as a digital asset provider in Ireland. The green light to operate in the European country follows the approval of other licenses in Singapore and Dubai earlier this year. 

The payment giant’s access to new markets drives XRP adoption and utility. This could trigger gains in XRP price.

Ripple gets license in Ireland, adding to 2023 wins

  • Ripple CLO announced the firm’s acceptance to the licensed Virtual Asset Service Provider List of the Central Bank of Ireland. The registration will allow Ripple, an enterprise blockchain and crypto solutions firm to provide certain digital assets services to entities within Ireland.
  • Earlier this year, Ripple also received a Major Payments Institution (MPI) license in Singapore from the Monetary Services Authority, and Dubai’s Financial Services Authority approved XRP’s use by licensed institutions.
  • In the US, Ripple has 35 Money Transmitter Licenses (MTL), and Ripple’s Singapore subsidiary – Ripple Markets APAC Pte Ltd – secured its MPI, and stricter compliances, but the ability to conduct multiple payment services with no threshold.
  • Ripple’s licensing in different countries is likely to boost XRP utility and adoption, acting as a catalyst for XRP price. 
  • XRP price was largely influenced by the SEC vs. Ripple lawsuit in 2023. The rising adoption of Ripple technology is expected to impact the altcoin’s valuation in the near future. 
  • Ripple unveiled its plan to provide services to clients across the Eurozone once the Markets in Crypto Assets regulation (MiCA) comes into force at the end of 2024. This development is subject to acquiring other necessary licenses by the crypto and blockchain solutions firm.
