Ripple, in partnership with Thailand's Siam Commercial Bank (SCB), has revealed it will pioneer a new feature known as "multi-hop". The function will allow for the frictionless settlement of payments on behalf of other financial institutions on the network, eliminating the need for direct or bilateral one-to-one connections.

Additionally, Ripple is preparing to host its largest event to-date. SWELL 2018 is a two day conference that will be held in San Francisco on October 1-2. Keynote speakers include former US President Bill Clinton, American former US national executive council director Gene Sperling, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse and many more.
