The latest rise in XRP comes after money transfer giant MoneyGramannounced plans to use it for faster worldwide payments.
As per a press release, MoneyGram will test the use of XRP via Ripple'sxRapid payment network, which it claims increases speed and reduces the costs of transferring money. Its transaction fee, at just "fractions of a penny", is also comparable to bitcoin's $30 (roughly Rs. 1,900) per transaction fee. Under the trial, MoneyGram will access and use Ripple's XRP. The CEO of Ripple stated that the company will probably build effectiveness and enhance administrations to MoneyGram's clients. "Money transfer companies are incredibly important because they help people get money to their friends and loved ones", said Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple.
Companies such as MoneyGram, the world's second-largest money-transfer business, typically use pre-funded accounts to fulfill customers' transfers, which can tie up capital.
The development is based around MoneyGram running a pilot program of Ripple's xRapid technology, which is the platform that allows for real-time foreign exchange (FX) settlement and is the platform that Ripple has been shopping to a host of major banking and financial institutions globally over the last 12 months or more.
