The platform enhances all types of payments and can support different payment systems like Instant, EMV, CBDC, and cryptocurrency, and can be used for both online and offline transactions. In this article, we discuss the growing interest in blockchain-based digital currencies (CBDCs) among central banks and the role of Ripple and Stellar in facilitating collaborations with companies like Crunchfish.
Central banks across the world have been working on blockchain-based digital currencies, also known as CBDCs, and blockchain platforms like Ripple and Stellar have emerged as the most-preferred platforms for launching these projects. While several central banks have been working on online solutions for CBDCs, they are also exploring ways to make use of CBDCs for offline payments. Digital Cash platform Crunchfish has been one of the key players in providing offline payment capabilities for payment services, banks, and CBDC implementations.

Crunchfish’s Role in Offline Payments with Central Banks
Crunchfish has been at the forefront of offline payments solutions for the banking and payments industry, offering their expertise to central banks across the globe. With the rise of CBDCs, central banks have been exploring ways to make use of CBDCs for offline payments, and Crunchfish’s expertise in this area has made them one of the most sought after solutions providers by the industry.
Crunchfish and its solutions have also been under the radar of companies such as Ripple and Stellar. The good thing about Crunchfish is that it has already partnered with the Bank of International Settlements (BIS), which strengthens its position in the market. According to Joachim Samuelsson, the CEO of Crunchfish, big players such as Ripple and Stellar could provide a bridge between Crunchfish and central banks. They are well-positioned to deal with the technical requirements for CBDCs.
New Developments in CBDCs with Ripple and Stellar
Startups like Ripple and Stellar have been at the forefront of building new solutions for CBDCs using their distributed ledger technology (DLT). Ripple, in particular, has introduced a CBDC platform that enables banks to launch their CBDCs on the Ripple technology. This platform is a modified version of the XRP ledger (XRPL) that was created two years ago. According to a statement, the CBDC platform will use the same blockchain technology as XRPL, allowing users to personalize and oversee the entire process of fiat-based CBDC transactions and distribution.
Big banking players like HSBC have also praised Ripple’s DLT technology, which is well-suited to cater to global banking needs. On the other hand, strong economies like Brazil have chosen the Stellar blockchain to conduct the pilot test of its central bank digital currency, Digital Real.
