SBI MoneyTap Expanded Features Set To Go Live In 2020

Just as you thought the great news was over for today we get some more amazing news out of SBI. MoneyTap is set to live in 2020. From looking over the quarterly report we are expecting a Q1 2020 launch. The Japanese banking community will launch a ground-breaking smartphone app called “MoneyTap” (driven by Ripple’s blockchain technology) to enable 24×7 real-time payment settlement for customers in the community.

“MoneyTap” is the first mobile app developed and used by many different banks in Japan.

As of now, we know of 3 banks that are live on the MoneyTap app with the rest scheduled to be rolled out over time. Yoshitaka Kitao has stated that by 2025 Japan will be powered by XRP and every bank in Japan will be using XRP. MoneyTap uses RippleNet blockchain network instead of the common domestic payment rails. The app reduces the cost and time of transfer associated with normal banking money transfer through ATM in Japan. MoneyTap offers a free of charge 24/365 inter-bank remittance
