Speaking on the subject, Palau President Surangel Whipps highlighted the importance of their cooperation with Ripple in creating a national digital currency.

We have taken a huge step towards financial innovation and adaptation to technology. This stablecoin will enable the people of Palau to achieve greater financial access.

The stablecoin will be named “Kluk”. Ripple’s central banks digital currencies platform will also be used for the stablecoin to be issued on the XRP Ledger (XRPL). As it will be remembered, the Ripple company first announced this platform in May.
