The Ripple company finally bought a share in the subsidiary of a Japanese financial giant MoneyTap; by the plan of the blockchain company, from now on, the development of services and applications will become even faster. After the merger with MoneyTap, two representatives of Ripple will join the board of directors of the Japanese counterpart. Apart from Ripple, MoneyTap has 38 more shareholders.
The MoneyTap app is based on the RippleNet and is being introduced to the Japanese banking system actively. In MoneyTap, they are now busy introducing a strict identification system (KYC) with a biometric-based log-in procedure. The launch is scheduled for spring. With time, all the members of the Japan Bank Consortium are expected to join the system by MoneyTap.
Ripple is very keen on the Japanese market, mostly because of its capacity. Moreover, Japan is special in terms of its immaculate clearness of regulative rules, which is among the key developmental issues for Ripple.
