Ripple is working with Bank for International Settlements on payments taskforce

The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) announced Ripple (XRP) as an official member of its ‘cross-border payments interoperability and extension taskforce’, on August 9.

This taskforce is part of the ‘BIS Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures’, composed of 33 entities plus the Chair, Ulrich Bindseil, Director of General Market Infrastructure & Payments at the European Central Bank.

“Engagement and partnership between the public and private sector is a key element of the G20 cross-border payments programme. Improvements to payment systems and arrangements underlying cross-border payments require global coordination, cooperation and the commitment of a wide range of public authorities and private sector stakeholders.”

“The CPMI is working to bring together the relevant stakeholders via joint working groups, workshops, consultations and surveys to ensure both strategic perspective and the required subject matter expertise is available to the programme.”
