Ripple keeps broadening its circle of partnerships both by collaborating with banks and by supporting young startups with investments.

This time, Ripple’s investment arm, Xpring, has offered an investment to a Swedish firm, Towo Labs, a maker of firmware for hardware wallets. Now, top-of-the-line hardware wallets will support all sorts of transactions on the XRP Ledger and the XRPL will get a non-custodial web interface on those devices.

The invested amount was not disclosed.

XRPL transactions to launch on the Ledger Nano series and Trezor T devices

The investment from Xpring assumes that within the short term, Towo Labs will integrate support for all types of XRPL transactions on top hardware wallets, such as Ledger Nano models and the Trezor T device.

The present firmware for those wallets only allows for XRP payment transactions and sometimes just blocks further innovation of XRPL and Interledger. The blog post says:

“The new firmware, however, will support the signing of cross-currency payments, trust lines for IOUs and tokenized assets, escrows, orders, payment channels, account settings and so forth.”

Xpring launches its own developer platform

Previously, U.Today reported that Xpring had announced the upcoming launch of its own platform for dApp makers.

Xpring is busy working on a software toolset that will allow developers working on the XRPL to easily integrate payments options in their dApps. The toolset will allow any crypto coins or fiat currencies to be used.

“This new platform offers a set of tools, services and programs that makes it easier for developers to send and receive payments by building on the XRP Ledger and leveraging Interledger Protocol (ILP) as a bridge to any currency, fiat or blockchain. In short, the Xpring Developer Platform removes the pain and messiness of integrating money into apps.”

Now, the new platform will enable XRPL-based dApps to use XRP for bridging crypto and fiat currencies.

China continues to take steps toward the digital economy and smart cities by officially releasing a nationwide blockchain service network, XINHUANET says.

Blockchain service network expectations

UnionPay, State Information Center (SIC), China Mobile and three other organizations worked on a system that will help China lead the blockchain technology market. Blockchain beta testing has already been announced and will last until March 2020, and all content and services will be available for free till that date.

BSN is expected to accelerate the development of digital technology and smart cities, as well as foster the development of new technology and industries.

What about CBDC?

Earlier, U.Today reported, that China has come close to creating its own cryptocurrency and may even launch it this fall, but then there was information that the national digital currency will appear later.

But China will not become the first country to introduce a national cryptocurrency. The Kingdom of Bhutan has already done it this month, as we already reported.

So, what do you think? Does the launch of China's national blockchain mean that the country will become a leader? Write what you think about this in the comments section!
