The annual symposium, which is scheduled to begin on the 10th of May and will be a two-day event, is anticipated to attract participation from around 40 speakers who are members of OMFIF’s global community of public and private sector representatives. These individuals include the likes of governors from the central banks of Israel, Ghana, and Italy, among others.
As one of the event’s primary speakers, Susan Friedman, who is currently the Head of Public Policy at the cryptocurrency company Ripple, will be there to promote the company’s vision for the larger fintech industry. The event is anticipated to be a pivotal gathering regarding CBDCs, money transfer regulation, decentralized applications (DApps) in business, and other related topics.
XRP Price Action
Ripple, is already in the works with several high-profile CBDC projects around the world, contributing both technical expertise and research. Recently, it has begun working with other digital currency ideas including the Euro, the Pound, and others. As reported earlier on CoinGape, Ripple’s XRPL Ledger got its first USD stablecoin — the decentralized alternative to the CBDC — with the Stably USD, represented by the ticker symbol USDS.
In light of this news, the XRP community and the larger crypto market have responded favorably to the announcement, as market participants are of the opinion that this might eventually result in a bullish scenario for the XRP token. As things currently stand, the price of XRP is exchanging hands at $0.51, which represents a gain of 0.52% over the past 24 hours in contrast to a drop of 0.06% recorded over the last seven days.
