However, Ripple was in the bulletin quite often – during the discussion, he also strictly shed light on the rumors spreading the “counterfeit over Ripple-Swift” partnership. He went to say that IBN (International Bank Account Number) and SWIFT are the global payment network and the partnership between SWIFT and Ripple is a strict rumor. He believes that “Ripple is already taking over SWIFT”.

According to its official website, Ripple Labs work with 100+ Fintech and payment providers using its RippleNet technology. Its clients include Japan’s Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group and Standard Chartered. Whereas the points that Swift didn’t agree on blockchain as a solution to the correspondent bank and thus the partnership news is forged.
He moreover stands on below statement;
“What we’re doing and executing on a day-by-day basis is, in fact, taking over Swift,” he said.
