There was a lot of excitement between the Ripple and XRP community about the upcoming comparison Ripple The managing director Brad Garlinghouse and the CEO of Swift Gottfried Leibbrandt on the next Blockchain Economic Forum will be held on 24-26 January 2019.
However, according to the updated list of speakers, Michal Krupinski, chairman of the board of directors and head of the Pekao bank, will discuss the topic "The new era of decentralized payment systems is coming?" With Brad Garlinghouse on the round table 2020 payment systems.
This has prompted the XRP community to speak while some are now assuming the possibility that Bank Pekao will be another Ripple partner. Such a passion shared in part,
"(Bank Pekao) This bank was principally owned by Unicredit (Ripple Partner) until 2016, when Unicredit decided to sell most of its shares to a Polish insurance company, Bank Pekao is known for its technological openness (they are were the first in Poland to offer electronic banking services for example) so I think it is very likely that Bank Pekao is another Ripple Partner that has not yet been announced, maybe we'll find out next week. "
However, another has this to say: "I really doubt it, they could be another current customer, but the current tax rules in Poland are unfavorable to any cryptocurrency transaction."
Well, now I'm just speculation and if I'm really one of Ripple's customers, we'll find out soon, by the end of this week.
XRP fans have something to say about the CEO of Swift who does not participate in the event. The reason why it is not known, however, was a joke: "Good decisions, why go there to embarrass you." While another commented: "He realizes he will lose".
The agenda of the event (https://bef.latoken.com/davos) as shared on the website is:

"
However, Ripple is fast we will share the same stage during the 1TC conference in Rust, Germany, where Marjan Delatinne, head of the global banking sector of Ripple and Wim Raymaekers, head of Swift's global banking market will confront each other to share their views on the future of cross payments online .
