Growth potential of the Ripple network in 2020
In an interview for “Balancing the Ledger”, Ripple’s CEO gave an update on the achievements and what can be expected from the company and its products in the coming year. Garlinghouse was quick to talk about the advantages of XRP over the traditional financial system and other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.
Garlinghouse said Ripple would see a 600% increase in its transaction volume. This year the company reported that it has over 300 partners and customers worldwide. This customer base could increase by 30 to 40% during 2020 and lead to increased transactions.
One of Ripple’s partners is Moneygram. Garlinghouse further statet that Moneygram is using On Demand Liquidity (ODL), formerly known as Xrapid, in 15% of its operations. ODL is one of the products for instant cross-border transfers that uses the native Ripple XRP token.
Moneygram CEO Max Holmes said the following about Ripple:
For the first time there is a technology available, that hast he potential to truly transform that capability and actually to move money with data which is to me just some kind of magical and this is what the future is all about.
Ripple (XRP) exceeds 500 employees worldwide and continues to open payment corridors
Moneygram is just one of the companies starting to incorporate Ripple’s products. Among its important allies is the SBI Group, with a broker in Japan managed by one of its trustees, Banco de Santander and other long-standing financial institutions.
On the other hand, it is necessary to highlight another of Ripple’s milestones in 2019. The company exceeded 500 employees worldwide. In addition, it still expects to expand to drive the adoption of Ripple’s cryptocurrencies and services.
