Two giants in global payments are in a head-and-tail race for payment agency Earthport, which has partnered with Ripple in 2014. It has long been rumored whether Earthport will actually use xRapid and thus the native token of Ripple, XRP, for cross-border payments. There is no official confirmation for this until today.
Visa is the final bidder in the struggle for the company, with a total offer of $ 319, Reuters reports. Both Visa and Mastercard want to expand their influence on international payments and are therefore interested in Earthport. Traditional cross-border credit transfers often involve double-digit fees, and the transaction can take several days.
The advantages of Earthport are obvious: lower fees, significantly higher speed and an already existing worldwide network of strong partners and business customers. The payment processing business has become one of the most competitive sectors in the free economy in the past two years, driven by technological change and the way consumers pay for products.
TRON's BTT Airdrop – everything you need to know
To promote the BitTorrentToken (BTT), the founder of TRON, Justin Sun, has decided to carry out a long-lasting Airdrop. All TRX-Hodler receive BTT as a gift for participating in participating exchanges. By 2025, more Ardrops will follow at regular intervals, rewarding TRX owners long term.
The first Airdrop is carried out at block height 6.6 million. Here, 990 million BTT tokens will be distributed to the community. This amount is increasing monthly and is expected to rise to 1,402,500,000 BTT per month by February 2025. The ratio of distributed BTT to TRX will be 0.11, but will also change in value over the next few years. The following list shows which Exchanges and Wallet providers support the BTT-Airdrop (no claim to completeness!):

Whether the movement will bring success to the project will only become apparent over the next few months. TRON had bought BitTorrent for more than $ 140 million last year.
