Partnership News: The news of a partnership with the PNC bank based in the United States, this time, was accepted enthusiastically by the markets. Ripple has announced partnerships with multiple banks in the past, initially creating expectations on banks that would use XRP assets. The partnership with Ripple is described as potentially capable of facilitating easier interbank transactions:
"With over 8 million customers and branches in 19 states, PNC has a diverse group of customers, including consumers, small businesses and large companies.

The months until the end of the year will have a constant expectation for the official launch of xRapid, Ripple's flagship technology, with the aim of finally offering a system of inter-bank transactions to compete with SWIFT. Despite the fact that XRP may not be the key to the use of xRapid, bullish sentiment is affecting the asset. The reason for this is a clear use case for blockchain technology, unlike more nebulous designs that do not seem to tap into the real business.
