Ripple Joins Forces with HashKey DX to Introduce XRP Ledger-Powered Enterprise Solutions in Japan

SBI Group companies will be the first Japanese corporations to utilize solution in Japan

Ripple, the leading provider of enterprise blockchain and crypto solutions, has entered into a strategic partnership with HashKey DX, the Tokyo-based specialized consulting company of the HashKey Group, to introduce XRP Ledger (XRPL)-powered enterprise solutions to the Japanese market.

HashKey Group has achieved significant success with its blockchain-powered supply chain finance solutions, which have seen widespread adoption in mainland China. The solution was launched in July 2019, and currently has more than 4,000 companies registered, including 23 banks and 4,300 suppliers. The total trade amount recorded exceeds 7 billion USD, with financing transactions nearing 3 billion USD within the solution.

Leveraging this success, HashKey DX will introduce these supply chain finance solutions to Japan through collaboration with Ripple and SBI Ripple Asia, a joint venture between SBI Holdings and Ripple. These solutions will be built on the XRPL, a decentralized layer 1 blockchain renowned for its decade-long reliability and stability in tokenizing and exchanging crypto-native and real-world assets.

As part of this partnership, SBI Group companies will become the first Japanese corporations to utilize this supply chain finance solution. Looking ahead, the three companies will explore further collaboration on various enterprise blockchain use cases that will leverage the robust capabilities of the XRPL.

Commenting on the partnership, Andy Dan from HashKey DX stated, “The XRPL was the ideal blockchain infrastructure for us to build our proven supply chain finance solution, with its proven enterprise track record and unmatched performance metrics, including rapid settlement speeds, low costs, and scalability, we are confident in our ability to drive meaningful transformation and introduce innovative, cutting-edge solutions for businesses in Japan."

"We are excited to join forces with HashKey DX and SBI Ripple Asia to introduce XRP Ledger-powered solutions to Japan. This collaboration exemplifies our shared commitment to advancing blockchain technology and delivering tangible value to businesses," added Emi Yoshikawa, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives at Ripple.
