Many expected the Swell conference conducted in early November by Ripple in Singapore to trigger the growth of XRP price, since this happened in previous years.

However, it did not happen this time, even though Ripple did boast a tremendous yearly progress in landing new customers (over 300 now) and its partners in the use of On-Demand Liquidity (ODL).

Ripple’s ODL makes remittance fast and cheap

The main partner so far in that is the global remittance operator MoneyGram, which sends funds from the US to Mexico using the local Bitso exchange and XRP.

The head of global operations at MoneyGram, Kamila Chytil, who was hired in late September, stated:

“We’ve leveraged On-Demand Liquidity on RippleNet to dramatically reduce our operational costs and process global payments at unprecedented speeds.”

In the course of the conference, top execs at Ripple, Ross Edwards and Kevin Mole, made a small presentation, explaining how the process of funds sending works on blockchain.

Is Spain’s third largest bank now with Ripple?

One of the Ripple fans on Twitter noticed that the third largest bank in Spain was used as an example during the aforementioned presentation. Some in the comment thread started guessing, whether the Caixa Bank now also works on RippleNet.

    The Whale Alert account reports that nearly 89,000 ETH was wired to Poloniex from a wallet that had remained inactive since April 2018

On Friday, the Twitter account Whale Alert that tracks large movements of crypto on the blockchain, spotted nearly 89,000 ETH (that’s around $13 mln in Ethereum) sent to the Poloniex exchange.

The account points out that the wallet which sent the money had been inactive since April 1 last year. No one has used it for nearly two years, apparently, waiting for the crypto winter to be over and hoping for a price surge afterwards.

One of the possible reasons of this wallet becoming active again is the Ethereum hard fork Istanbul which is about to happen today, on December 7, at block 9069000.

Very often the price of an asset goes up after a major upgrade (the Istanbul hard fork will not cause an appearance of a separate coin as it was with Ethereum Classic).
