About SBI Ripple Powered App ‘MoneyTap’
MoneyTap is a Japanese mobile application platform that was launched back in late 2018 with the collaboration of SBI Holdings and Ripple. The core focus was to connect different banks at one channel and provide customers with this exclusive service.
With the time more advancements have been made in the app, with Ripple wanting to enter significant capital into the online platform. According to the report, MoneyTap has collaborated with 25 Capital-Participating Banks, 8 API Platform Connected Companies and with U.S. Ripple.
MoneyTap is the only network in Japan that provides Swish-type Solution. This adds more variety to the MoneyTap with allowing 24/7 immediate inter-bank remittance application without charge throughout the year.
Moreover, in addition to account number designation remittances, mobile phone number designation and QR code remittances are also possible. It, in short, is a highly efficient and low cost “next-generation infrastructure” platform that previews fintech.
