Ripple to Benefit From Banks Cutting Correspondent Relationships

There are quite a few interesting trends in the banking sector to take note of. One particular trend indicates how some banks are axing correspondent banking relationships.

CZ Binance's Opinion On The Status Of XRP

The court case may take years. But if XRP is ruled as a security, it would seriously hurt a lot of US users, and to a certain extent, other users around the world too. It certainly doesn't look like...
