XRP’s mention in the report came to light when an XRP fan ‘@DiepSnah’ shared the same on Twitter earlier on May 29. He also mentioned in his tweet that few of the committee members are from the bank of England, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, etc.
XRP enhances faster cross-border payments settlement, according to report
The report acknowledged Ripple’s XRP as an exchangeable crypto asset. It added that XRP behaves as a bridge currency to other currencies.
Furthermore, the report, however, brings to our notice that an exchangeable crypto asset has roles to play in anti-money laundering. Besides that, such a crypto asset can have repercussions for preventing terrorism financing, according to the report.
Ripple’s crypto, designed to act as a bridge currency, will allow faster settlement of cross-border payments for financial institutions. It also enhances ease of use along with the exploitation of its consensus mechanism, the report outlined.
Alongside XRP, the report mentioned the two most popular crypto assets, Bitcoin and Ethereum. In short, FMLC, in this response document, has attempted to classify crypto assets based on each of their function.
