Before we get all crazy and strap on our moon bots – let’s pump the breaks. YES, SBI is going live but this does not mean we are going to the moon. SBI VC is going to bring extra liquidity (much needed IMO) to the market. SBI will also open a MAJOR corridor: Japan. Now we have tweeted about how big SBI actually is months ago and it been pinned to the top of our twitter. We compared the number of users on SBI currently to some of the traditional platforms and wait till you see the numbers:
Just think 23 million people will be able to purchase XRP via SBIVC come March. That’s larger than @coinbase who has around 13.3 million users and Charles Schwab has about 10.6 million. Think about that for a second@digitalassetbuy @BankXRP https://t.co/HN5FYoBTCg

We are talking 23 million people now have the ability to purchase XRP. Think about that for a second – 23 million! This is almost double Coinbase user base.
The official tweet from SBI stated the following:

Here is the English translation:
📢 [Notice of implementation of system maintenance in preparation for starting new service provision] July 31 (Wed) 6:00-18:00 ※#システムメンテナンス The above schedule is planned, but may be extended or shortened. ▼ Click here for details
As posted on SBI VC Trade page the system will be under maintenance July 31st, but the new details are going to be announced separately. We can expect the announcement in the next couple of days mark my words. This is a major milestone not just for XRP but for the whole crypto community as SBI VC will become the 1st REAL bank that is holding and selling digital currencies. Exciting times ahead everyone!
