Ripple announced a partnership with moneygram last week which is xrapid focused. Swift have just announced their gpi will be using dlt and r3 (which settles with xrp). Rumours of a western union partnership. Sendfriend went live on the 23rd of june using xrapid. Sbi vc and bakkt go live in July. The only thing holding it back currently is the sec decision on whether it’s a security, but the general consensus is if moneygram etc are using it, it can’t be a security. Exciting times.
I believe, Bitcoin is gold without the weight and the ability to take flight. It's a distributed ledger which no one entity controls, but is visible and verifible by all. t takes a while for people to understand what it is. My advice for crypto is as follows: even if you are not going to invest in crypto, just read news from cryptolinks resources and keep yourself updated in the crypto world.
