Will the new debit card of MoneyGram and Visa use XRP?

Recently it was reported that the Ripple-backed MoneyGram payment service and the Visa giant have joined forces to launch a P2P debit card deposit service

Many in the Ripple community assumed that since MoneyGram is using XRP now, after the recent accusation of the international payments provider by Ripple, the new debit card service is going to start utilizing XRP as soon as the debit card expands its area of service beyond the US.

However, there has been no official confirmation or denial on behalf of Ripple so far.

Perhaps the coming interview will shed light on this matter as well as many others.

The Fed won’t stop Bitcoin

On Aug. 8, Kelly joined the team of CNBC’s ‘Squawk Box’ to discuss the future of Bitcoin as a hedge asset. Anthony Scaramucci, the former White House communications chief, was another notable guest who appeared on today’s show.

When 'the Mooch' stepped into the conversation and asked whether the Fed can put the brakes on Bitcoin, Kelly replied that it would be hard to achieve.

In terms of killing, that’s very difficult, that’s very much like the Internet”    

However, the central bank could block fiat on-ramps. That would make it much harder to buy BTC.

Major exchanges, such as Coinbase and Gemini, campaign for regulations to retain access to the fiat market.

When asked by Melissa Lee whether there it affected the rest of the crypto-loving Asian market, Kelly replied there was indeed a ripple effect.
