We’ve seen a lot of interest in XRP in 2017 from payment providers, but also from banks. So in 2018, our job is to put these thoughts into action. We’ve been laying the groundwork for many years and are now the only digital asset whose use case is widely recognized by central banks and regulators worldwide.
Besides the big push on XRP, you’ll of course see us grow RippleNet, which already has more than 100 financial institutions and banks and we are continuing to bring more on board.
Finally, on the Interledger front we are moving on from working on the protocol and are starting to look at early use cases. We’ll be challenging a lot of use cases for distributed protocols that are currently using custom tokens with much simpler solutions that use ILP/XRP instead. (Think custom communications protocols that are for one purpose only being disrupted by the Internet.)
