Banking giant BBVA released a statement involving Ripple tests being successful.

BBVA claims successful tests using XRP for cross-border transactions where using the Ripple platform reduced a 3-4 day turnaround for money transfers to a matter of seconds.

“We think something really big is happening in this sector, and we want to be at the forefront. A successful string of moves can possibly catapult BBVA into the public eye within the US financial services sector.” - Onur Genc, BBVA Compass CEO

Ripple price is currently around 65 cents USD, which was over $2 at the beginning of the year.

Ripple's blockchain solution is a private one, meaning only involved banks act as nodes rather than a global base of nodes, which has both advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages being that for banks, they have control over transactions for compliance reasons, but lack security and immutability a global blockchain like bitcoin or Ethereum would provide. 

Regardless, a private blockchain may not be as secure as a global chain, but is still better than current traditional systems and for that reason, this is good news nonetheless.
