The tweet by XRPcryptowolf refers to an article discussing how XRP could potentially play a crucial role in the development and implementation of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs). The article explains that Ripple’s technology and XRP’s use case as a bridge currency could enable seamless and efficient cross-border transactions for CBDCs.
