BRICS trade has grown remarkably

The BRICS group witnessed a remarkable surge in their trade activities over the five-year period from 2017 to 2022.
According to a report by Bloomberg, these nations collectively bolstered their economic ties and achieved a staggering 56% growth in their trade volumes during this period.
This significant increase underscores the growing economic significance of this influential bloc on the global stage.
In the year 2022, the combined trade turnover among the BRICS nations reached an impressive milestone, amounting to a staggering $422 billion.
This substantial figure demonstrates the remarkable economic prowess and potential of the BRICS group, solidifying its status as a major player in the international trade landscape.
In a recent statement, Russian President Vladimir Putin argued that the BRICS group has already surpassed the G7 nations in terms of the purchasing power parity (PPP) of their populations.
This claim highlights the rising economic strength and consumer power of BRICS countries, potentially reshaping the global economic landscape and challenging the traditionally dominant position of the G7.

Government documents from 2014 refer to XRP

The United States Government Accountability Office:
Other virtual currencies that have been created are not based on the bitcoin protocol.
One of the more prominent examples is XRP, which is used within a decentralized payment system called Ripple.
Ripple allows users to make peer-to-peer transfers in any currency.
A key function of XRP is to facilitate the conversion from one currency to another.
For example, if a direct conversion between Mexican pesos and Thai baht is not available, the pesos can be exchanged for XRP, and then the XRP for baht.

Gold is the future as inflation coming in hot

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell keeps telling us not to worry about rising prices, assuring us that any increase in price inflation is transitory. It appears most of the mainstream is buying this hook line and sinker.
The collapse of fiat currencies will demolish the state theory of money, and not for the first time. Irrespective of how long it takes, the rapid loss of fiat currencies purchasing power means that governments will no longer be able to finance their obligations. There will, therefore, come a point where fiat money must be abandoned in the search for monetary stability. The demise of fiat is the demise of state money and the function of its replacement will be to restore public trust.
The replacement money can only be based on something in governments possession. And either in their treasury departments or central banks, other than each others fiat they only possess gold in their monetary reserves.
