How did the move of SBI Japan help Ripple?

Ripple has been under hot water dealing with lawsuits since 2020 for selling unregistered securities in the form of XRP. But, the CEO of Ripple Mr. Brad Garlinghouse believes that the lawsuit with SEC will result in a positive outcome for the blockchain based global payment firms. The move by SBI Japan does not only help Ripple to gain back the popularity, but also facilitates the payment system prevailing in the developing countries like Africa. People in countries like Africa, lack access to basic financial services. However, SBI believes that over 1.7 billion people lack access to basic financial services across the world.



In Conclusion, I certainly believe that blockchains have all the possible traits to help the people with their basic financial facilities. Basically the use of block chains will facilitate crypto asset remittances even if the banking functions stop and allow the investors remittances with out any hazard.
