The software solutions for companies from Ripple, xCurrent and xRapid, are becoming increasingly popular in a wide variety of financial sectors around the world. Some test runs, e.g. at American Express and Santander, have been very successful. These heavyweights in the banking industry are currently considering extending their efforts to larger territories in order to save costs and time for cross-border credit transfers. A new, slightly more detailed, interview by Miguel Vias explains the new applications of Ripple in practice.

Sun wants to bring with fund developer from Ethereum to TRON
The founder of TRON, Justin Sun, has announced on Twitter that the company will launch a fund to pay Ethereum dApp developers if they commit to pull their dApps onto the TRON platform.
#TRON will build a fund to rescue #ETH and #EOS developers from the collapse of their platform as long as those developers migrate their dapps to #TRON. #TRX $TRX

The eternal battle for supremacy as the leading platform for decentralized applications is thus entering the next round. Sun is known for its aggressive self-promotion, which seems to be as controversial as it is successful. In comparison to many other projects, TRON was able to place itself at the top end of the largest crypto currencies worldwide.
Ledger and Nefund want to start platform for ERC20 tokens
The European cryptostartups Neufund and Ledger have announced to jointly create an all technical interface to integrate ERC20 tokens on Ledger’s desktop application “Ledger Live”. Zoe Adamovicz, CEO of Neufund, explains that this step is necessary in order to address investors working with large sums of money:
The Ledger hardware wallets are currently the most secure way to set up and manage the investments made through the New Find logs. For operations in the 7- to 9-digit range (€), security comes first.
Ledger is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of hardware wallets with over one million devices sold in 2017.
