Susan Friedman, head of policy at Ripple, will represent the corporation at the Digital Pound Foundation. She stressed the importance of this partnership for the evolution of the global financial system:

Ripple Rival Stellar Inks Partnership with MoneyGram

As covered by U.Today previously, Ripple's rival Stellar will utilize the second-largest stablecoin, USD Coin (USDC), in its cooperation with Moneygram.

Turning stablecoins carbon-neutral

The long-term partnership with the Digital Pound Foundation is set to reaffirm Ripple's focus on the stablecoin sphere. Recently, it entered into a partnership with Bhutan's central bank, the Royal Monetary Authority (RMA).

Ripple will provide technical, consulting and advisory support for Bhutan's CBDC workload.

As Bhutan is the first carbo-neutral nation-state in the world, Ripple's strategy of building an eco-friendly stablecoin is perfectly aligned with its vision and mission.
