In a video shared alongside the tweet, Kirit Bhatia, Ripple’s Head of International Business Development, elaborated on the significance of this endeavor. 

Bhatia highlighted his connection to Hong Kong, citing pivotal moments in his career. He commended the growing adoption of cryptocurrencies in the region and underscored Hong Kong’s historical prominence as a bustling global financial hub. 

Ripple’s Role in Hong Kong

Bhatia noted that Hong Kong boasts one of the highest concentrations of developers and blockchain-related investments per capita. He revealed that Ripple is actively collaborating with local businesses and financial institutions. The aim is to usher in a new era of value movement, management, and tokenization. 

Bhatia highlighted Ripple’s partnership with the Hong Kong Monetary Authority to pilot a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) initiative. The initiative aims to tokenize real-world assets using Ripple’s CBDC platform powered by the XRP Ledger (XRPL) technology.

It is worth mentioning that Fubon Bank, the Hong Kong-based subsidiary of Taiwan’s Fubon Financial Holding Co., has affirmed its intentions to introduce a test program for real estate tokenization this year. As The Crypto Basic reported, the bank will carry out the initiative utilizing Ripple’s CBDC solution.

XRP Community Weighs In

Prominent XRP influencer Crypto Eri shared her insights on the global crypto landscape of Ripple’s endeavor. She ranked Dubai, Hong Kong, the UK, Singapore, Japan, and the US as the countries most fervently vying to establish themselves as crypto hubs. 

Eri argued regulatory frameworks would ultimately determine the victor, with the prevailing regulations influencing talent concentration in these regions. Her tweet included a pointed message to key US politicians.

Brett Hill, an XRPL NFT admin, asserted that XRP was poised to be the cornerstone of a new financial system. Hill believes attempts to impede this progress would prove ineffective in the face of XRP’s growing influence.

Similarly, an XRP enthusiast highlighted Ripple’s extensive global partnerships and dismissed popular XRP price predictions. He expressed confidence in XRP’s worldwide utility, potentially pushing its value beyond bounds.
