Gallery: Bitcoin and Blockchain Feature at Money 20/20 2015
Bitcoin and the blockchain were frequent topics at the annual Money20/20 conference held in Las Vegas last week.
Money transfer giant MoneyGram will use Ripple's xRapid and the XRP cryptocurrency to settle cross-border transactions as part of a new partnership.
Coming off several weeks of intense criticism enterprise blockchain startup Ripple has revealed several clients using its native cryptocurrency, XRP.
Ripple now owns nearly 10 percent of MoneyGram's outstanding common stock after completing its $50 million equity investment.
International money-remittance firm MoneyGram is partnering with Ripple to test the startup's XRP token for international payments.
MoneyGram still doesn't think bitcoin will impact its business – but it sees blockchain-powered banks as a potential way for it to cut costs.
