Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) said it now works with RippleNet on its Quartz blockchain solution. The Quartz cross-border remittance solution enables banks/payment systems to connect to DLT-based payment infrastructure (such as RippleNet) to handle cross-border foreign exchange transactions. The company did not specify which Ripple cross-border software solution suite the Quartz platform is connected to, nor does it say whether it supports Ripple's XRP-driven xRapid. However, R3's Corda Settler remittance platform does support XRP, which means XRP integration is relatively easy for Quartz. Earlier on March 15th, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) announced that it is developing five blockchain platforms to leverage the blockchain technology of Microsoft and R3 to drive large-scale adoption of blockchains across industries.
