The newest topic in the market is Ripple’s vision of the Internet of Value but not many people are sure of what it actually means for XRP or for the crypto community. The original currency, Bitcoin is what pops up when the word blockchain is heard or when cryptocurrency is mentioned.

Only a part of the community is excited and goes exploring beyond just payments. This will ultimately touch down to what Ripple has had from many years – IoV.

William Mougayar, a Venture capitalist says:

“Blockchain is the second significant overlay on the internet, just as the web was the first layer back in 1990.”

The Internet of Value [IoV]

The whole idea behind IoV is to exchange value as quick as information. Information propagates instantly but a single payment across the border takes 3-5 days to settle with a minimum error rate of 5% and high costs. According to statistics, a total of $180 million international payments is made every year throughout the globe, with a clubbed cost of $1.7 trillion or more.

With IoV, these cross-border payments can happen almost instantly just like sharing any form of media online. Apart from just money, IoV will also enable the exchange of an asset that is valuable to somebody.

Ripple’s team stated:

“This Internet of Value will effectively democratize finance.”

Beyond smartwatches and apps, micropayments and international payments are few of the functional changes that the Internet of Value might bring in the near future. A company cannot single-handedly build the Internet of Value.

Collaborations and partnerships between many entities are very necessary. Ripple is making progress towards this with more than 130 partnerships in their pocket.

Just like waving a smartwatch to pay for a coke from a vending machine or groceries in a checkout line, resorts and cruises providing wearable devices that serve as all-in-one room key, IoV can help and change every person’s lifestyle, automating and digitalizing everything.

There are many illustrations and live use cases of how the IoV can transform and simplify one’s lifestyle as described by Ripple’s team on their official website.

This is what the team had to stay:

“By working together, we can make transactions easier, faster and cheaper, opening up an entirely new universe of possibilities. And by embedding these applications within automobile, wearable and other technology innovations, the Internet of Value might just make a cameo in the next Ridley Scott feature.”

The team believes that this process of standardization will transform and impact the world in a positive way.

Corey Winkler, a Twitterati says:

“Love the vision. Keep up the good work Ripple, I truly believe in this company. XRP will be the standard of the future.”

Gary Winslet, a Ripple enthusiast says:

“Now I’m even more convinced Ripple’s future are micropayments. Banks and FIs yes, yet touching everyone’s daily life, that’s the Ripple future.”

Coinone, hailed in Asia as one of the continent’s “Big Four” cryptocurrency exchanges, is set to join the Ripple family. Announced on June 17, the exchange performs cross-banking services, while implementing Ripple’s xCurrent solution in its operations.

The partnership between the San Francisco-based blockchain payments giant, Ripple, and Japan’s SBI Holdings called SBI-Ripple Asia, will see the participation of Coinone. With a growing number of cross-border transactions emanating from the southern half of the Korean Peninsula, several companies have been looking to capitalize.

Coinone’s addition to the Ripple network is the first such inclusion of a South Korean cryptocurrency exchange. Speaking about the partnership, CEO of Coinone, Shin Won-hee, told K Banker, a Korean media outlet,

“We hope that the cooperation between Coinone and SBI Ripple Asia will provide allow us to introduce a range of financial services that make use of blockchain technology.”

Coinone’s official Twitter account added that this integration is ‘about Ripple,’

Following the CEO of SBI Holdings, Yoshitaka Kitao, being appointed as a board member at Ripple, the Pacific partnership between the two companies has blossomed. The duo launched SBI -Ripple Asia, a J.V. with the aim of using the network power of RippleNet to build a global payments stream.

K Banker further reported that in the gist of celebrating the agreement with SBI Ripple Asia and their remittance program, Coinone Transfer will “organize overseas remittance events for 3,000 new subscribers to the block chain overseas remittance service.”

The partnership between the two companies was first initiated in May 2018 when Coinone integrated xCurrent into its remittance services titled “Cross.” According to the latest figures, eight Asian countries can send remittances via the system, with the fee for the same remaining at 1 percent.
