After the climb of the past week a lot of people are considering if it’s still worth it or not. Ripple (XRP), by the deployment of the test net in Japan between more than 50 banks, has gotten a lot of notoriety and has proven itself as valid project even if its aim is to work with financial institutions such as banks.

This deployment of the test net aims to be the data layer underneath transaction amongst banks and by doing so envision the possibility of saving about 60% in costs.
