MoneyTap is the first notable application for blockchain technology from Ripple for consumer retail payments in Japan that allows customers to domestic banks to conduct transactions 24 hours a day, seven days a week using the QR-code, phone number or Bank account numbers. There is no evidence that the technology uses a token XRP, at this point such a development is unlikely.
