We don’t need to search far and wide to find news regarding Ripple establishing partnerships with large banking firms – take Santander’s One Pay FX app for example.
One Pay FX is just one example that see’s Ripple working closely alongside a major banking group, other examples would include SBI of Japan and ATB Financial of Canada. A key part of the Ripple business model is the provision of major partnerships. By working with major national banks, Ripple are ensuring the adoption of their technology, giving them new customers and a guaranteed workflow that should be around for years to come.
Partnerships play an integral role in the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency. Projects focusing on innovative concepts need to gain mainstream traction if they want to survive in the long run. The IOTA team has been actively working on forging key partnerships with some of the biggest companies which come to mind. The following examples are ranked in terms of perceived long-term potential.
#6 Luxoft / St. Petersburg Polytechnic
Creating a partnership with software giant Luxoft has been a major milestone for the IOTA project to date. Through this collaboration, IOTA aims to optimize its Tangle protocol and unlock new features along the way. This partnership also encompasses the St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, which is one of the few academic institutions to focus its attention on IOTA at this stage.

As we know, xRapid is most associated with XRP, the native currency to the Ripple blockchain as it’s premise is to provide cross border payments that minimise liquidity costs, via a high speed, low fee network.
