Is Ripple ready? SWIFT, payment platforms to enact upgrade in coming months
According to an official announcement, SWIFT, a global financial messaging service, has accepted its community request to start ISO 20022 migration in March 2023. ISO 20022 is a global data standard for modern payment messaging between financial institutions and payment systems. While most payment systems in both Europe and the U.S. plan to migrate to this standard either in spring 2023 (the ECB, Clearing House Automated Payment System [CHAPS], FedNow) or spring 2025 (Fedwire), RippleNet network was designed from the start with ISO 20022 standards in mind. In 2020, Ripple joined the ISO 20022 Registration Management Group (RMG) standards body, becoming the first member focused on Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT).
DOGE finally has use case, says Cardano founder; Dogecoin creator hits back
Elon Musk's finalization of his Twitter purchase has caused quite a stir around Dogecoin and its potential adoption by the social media giant. Following this, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson created a poll, asking his followers whether he and his team should pitch to Twitter post-quantum ultrafast DOGE on Cardano and create a new use case for the meme coin. Although 80% of participants voted in favor of the initiative, not everyone liked it, in particular Dogecoin’s Billy Markus. In his response to Hoskinson, Markus called the Cardano creator “#massivehypocrite,” asking him whether he suddenly stopped hating DOGE. Back in April 2021, Hoskinson recorded a video in which he extremely harshly called DOGE a bubble.
