The SDK.finance team recently participated in the Ripple CBDC Innovate Challenge, an event that brought together visionaries and innovators like ExtoPay, WhisperCash and STB to explore the potential of Ripple’s CBDC protocol and the XRP ledger, a decentralized public blockchain. Our mission was to harness the power of these technologies and develop solutions that improve efficiency, security, and transparency in financial systems.
At SDK.finance, we believe in the transformative capabilities of CBDC technology to revolutionize money management. Our team hadto leverage Ripple’s CBDC protocol and XRP ledger to drive improvements in cross-border payments, reduce fraud, and increase transparency in the financial sector. The Ripple CBDC Hackathon provided the perfect opportunity to showcase our ideas and contribute to this cutting-edge technology.

How did SDK.finance cope with the challenge?
The SDK.finance team has provided pre-built components, including a backend wrapper with APIs specifically configured to facilitate currency exchange, account balance tracking, and XRP settlement. With fractional functionality allowing the XRP ledger to be set up as 1,000,000 drops, we wanted to improve scalability and adaptability to various CBDC project requirements.
- First, we defined the requirements for the solution, considered the needs of central banks and financial institutions, and addressed the technical blockchain limitations.
- Then we designed the solution, created an architecture, and defined detailed technical specifications.
- Finally, we conducted extensive testing and gathered feedback from central banks and financial institutions to ensure compliance with the Hackathon rules.
Our development team used various technologies, including Java Spring, Linux, MongoDB, Postgresql, Typescript, and Vue.js.
Based on this experience, we have determined that Ripple’s CBDC protocol and XRP ledger provide a solid foundation for advanced financial, payment, and currency ecosystems that benefit central banks, financial institutions, merchants, and individuals.
We plan to expand SDK.finance integrations with the leading service providers and continue to develop new product features and components based on XRP Ledger for WEB3 and PSD3.
