SWIFT Announces DLT integration using R3’s Corda
As reported by FXStreet, the leading banking payments network SWIFT has announced plans that will see it integrate technology developed by a blockchain software company referred to as R3. The plans were first mentioned this Wednesday during the Paris Forum. News of SWIFT using R3’s Corda platform has spiked XRP/USD’s value because R3’s Corda has the capability of using XRP to facilitate global payments.
In December of last year, the CTO of R3, Richard Gendal Brown, had explained how XRP would work with Corda:
“The deployment of the Corda Settler and its support for XRP as the first settlement mechanism is an important step in showing how the powerful ecosystems cultivated by two of the of the world’s most influential crypto and blockchain communities can work together.
While the Settler will be open to all forms of crypto and traditional assets, this demonstration with XRP is the next logical step in showing how widespread acceptance and use of digital assets to transfer value and make payments can be achieved.”
