Payment protocol Ripple has announced a record year culminating with a $200 million Series C funding round led by Tetragon (OTC:TGONF) “with participation from SBI Holdings (OTC:SBHGF) and Route 66 Ventures”. Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse commented:

“We are in a strong financial position to execute against our vision. As others in the blockchain space have slowed their growth or even shut down, we have accelerated our momentum and industry leadership throughout 2019.”

SBI Holdings is partnering with German stock exchange owner Boerse Stuttgart Group in Europe and Asia to develop “"a truly global end-to-end ecosystem for digital assets, utilizing blockchain technology”, according to a report from CoinDesk. Alexander Höptner, chairman of Boerse Stuttgart's management board, said:

“Asia and Europe are the fastest growing markets for digital assets at the moment. Besides the exchange of knowledge and technology, possible fields of collaboration include the cross issuance and listing of digital assets, trading and brokerage as well as the creation of the first global custody bridge.”

South Korean telecom giant KT Corporation (NYSE:KT) has been selected as the operating agent for a blockchain-based local currency in the city of Busan, according to local outlet dongA. Called “Dongbaekjeon”, the currency will be stored on a card and is “issued by Busan City to revitalize Busan's local economy and ease the management burden of small business”. It will launch on December 30.

Crypto exchange giant Coinbase has won a patent for a system allowing crypto payments via email, according to a report from Cointelegraph. An excerpt from the patent outline explains:

“Hot wallet functionality is provided that transfers values of some Bitcoin addresses to a vault for purposes of security. A private key of a Bitcoin address of the vault is split and distributed to keep the vault secure [...] A vault has multiple email addresses to authorize a transfer of bitcoin out of the vault.”
