Colombian central bank collaborates with Ripple on a Blockchain test


Share post:

The Colombian central bank is evaluating how Ripple’s new end-to-end CBDC platform could enhance the nation’s high-value payment system.

In collaboration with the Ministry of Information and Communications Technologies, Banco de la Republica will test the Ripple platform for the remainder of the year. The Ripple platform is powered by the XRP Ledger, an open-source, energy-efficient Blockchain that was created to address a variety of use cases, such as issuing a stablecoin or handling wholesale and retail CBDCs on a private ledger.

“By harnessing the CBDC Platform, based upon the XRPL, this project will pave the way for transformative advancements in the utilization of Blockchain technology within the public sector,” says James Wallis, VP of central bank engagements and CBDCs at Ripple.
