Sometimes, the head of SBI Holdings Yoshitaka Kitao may appear over-optimistic about Ripple and XRP abilities to revolutionize crypto. SBI Holdings anchors and is the nucleus of Ripple activities in Asia. As the majority holder of SBI-Ripple Asia alliance, they have been promoting adoption in the crypto-active region.
March is when the SBIVC exchange will launch and with XRP paired against the Japanese Yen, we expect an immediate effect on price. However, the real impact is projected to be in August when adoption will be center stage, and there will be regulatory clarity on the status of XRP as a token.
Add this to SBI Holdings plans of supporting Ripple Inc and aid in their ambition of driving the coin to new heights. Bullish signals are flashing. Here is what Yoshitaka Kitao said: “Under these circumstances, we will promote efforts to expand the practical use of virtual currency like XRP more and more. Also, on the other side, we will provide investment instruments incorporating virtual currency into institutional investors.”
