RippleNet Committee ensures healthy network expansion ahead of Swell
On the eve of Swell, representatives from MUFG Bank, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, WestPac, Standard Chartered, Banco Santander, Siam Commercial Bank, American Express, and SBI met at our headquarters in to discuss the rules that govern RippleNet, our global payments network. These rules are critical to ensuring standardization across the network as it scales rapidly.
Together, representatives from these institutions make up the RippleNet Committee. They gather multiple times per year to ensure the blockchain technology powering instant cross-border payments on RippleNet is complimented by a common framework for operational consistency, faster onboarding and legal clarity for every transaction.
As the network is still new and growing rapidly, the committee makes sure RippleNet maintains efficiency as well as its nimbleness to remain innovative. You can learn more about the RippleNet Committee here.
