With the increase in the adoption of digital assets across several mainstreams, some countries are strategizing on moving with the flow.
Hence, most countries across the globe are working and experimenting on developing a national digital currency that they can link with their fiat currencies. This is the primary reason for collaboration between the Republic of Palau and Ripple’s digital payment network.
Through the partnership, Ripple will assist the Pacific Island country in developing its national digital currency. The initiation ensures that the digital currency is USD-backed and will support Palau’s payments across borders.
In addition, Ripple announced that it would produce a national stablecoin within the first half of next year through the partnership. This will stand as the first of its kind globally with government backing.
