Ripple releases The Last Mile Playbook
Ripple just released an extensive overview of digital assets regulations all over the world. The firm released a 2020 report called The Last Mile Playbook.
In this report, the San Francisco payments startup offers a look at the extent to which countries in key remittance markets support crypto assets such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and XRP.
“Today, countries around the world are addressing the frictions inherent in the last mile by upgrading and modernizing their domestic payment schemes,” according to the report as cited by the Daily Hodl.
The notes continue and state that “Out of 195 countries, there are now over 54 real-time payment schemes developed and many more in development globally. These new systems enable real-time settlement of low-value payments and rich data transfer.”
In the United States, Ripple highlighted the fact that the the Commodity Futures Trading Commission has officially declared that Bitcoin (BTC) is a commodity.
More than that, it’s been revealed that the agency’s current chairman, Heath Tarbert, has said he believes Ethereum is a commodity as well.
Another interesting thing worth noting is that Ripple has met with regulators around the world in an effort to drive the adoption of XRP in the world of cross-border payments.
