Ripple (XRP) mentioned in IMF paper as payments processing alternative
After the recent declarations from IMF director Christine Lagarde, where she mentioned that, independently from the name, distributed ledger technologies and crypto were here to “shake the system”, this piece of strategy from the Fund is getting its share of attention today.

3. Andre '3000' singing - 3000 a price prediction?
4. The establishment is angry. They know they are about to loose out
