A division of PNC bank had officially joined RippleNet to tap its blockchain solution for cross-border payments and settlements. PNC Treasury Management will be using Ripple’s technology to process international payments. This is a prominent indication of the use of blockchain in mainstream finance.

Ripple is headed towards introducing several blockchain-based solutions that enable international transactions between banks in a faster, cost-efficient way than the present systems. As stated by Ripple, PNC has over eight million customers and retail branches in 19 states, which helps Ripple to enhance its position within the US banking sector.
