Welfare replied to a tweet from a prominent member of the XRP community @sentosumosaba. The tweet references an interview with Welfare dated June 17, 2022, which includes notable lines like “Ripple has several pilots in the progress for CBDCs, including the Royal Monetary Authority (RMA) of Bhutan and the Republic of Palau.”
As stated on their website:
“Our RippleX business unit is focused on making it easy for developers to build on and with the XRP Ledger, as well as partnering with others in the crypto space on use cases like NFTs and CBDCs (aka tokenised assets).”
He thanked Sento for mentioning him and asked to follow him for new updates on CBDC in the next few weeks. Certainly, “in the next few weeks” is a rather vague timescale. The Ripple XRP community has been buzzing with CBDC rumors, so this is exciting news even without them.
Thanks @sentosumosaba for the mention – make sure you follow me for more CBDC announcements in the next few weeks 👌👌👌
