Ripple Becomes Platinum Partner for Global CBDC Conference, XRP Price Surges
We have exciting news for Ripple and XRP enthusiasts as the blockchain giant has become the platinum partner for Global CBDC Conference. This news has come just after the report of Chinese government’s intention to create a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).
The Global CBDC Conference is being organized by FinTech4Good which is an organization that comprises experts from different fields such as banking, blockchain, legal, and regulatory. The event will take place on April 8-9th in London where industry experts will discuss topics such as digital fiat currencies, global regulation of stablecoins, and central bank digital currencies.
As Ripple joins hands with FinTech4Good to organize this event it shows that the San Francisco-based firm understands the significance of digital assets and their role in the world economy. On this occasion, Ripple’s Vice President of Global Operations Ethan Beard said:
"It's essential that we continue to foster conversations between policymakers and industry leaders...We look forward to helping shape an open conversation where different stakeholders can come together to discuss these important trends.”
By becoming a platinum partner at the Global CBDC Conference Ripple is taking one more step towards expanding its operations around the world. It is probably not a coincidence that after this announcement XRP price surged by more than 4% over the last 24 hrs.
