“Ripple anticipates this momentum in transaction volume to continue as more partners and customers go live.”
Ripple currently has 20 customers using xRapid, who are transferring money between Mexico and the Philippines. Last month, Ripple partnered with money transfer giants, MoneyGram, who stated that they plan on using xRapid. Ripple also talked about the expansion of Xpring, its fundraising arm, which has invested half a billion dollars in boosting XRP and growing the blockchain ecosystem.
“This support is done in two ways:
1) helping innovative blockchain projects grow through partnership and investment;
2) building crypto infrastructure through contributions to open source crypto protocols such as the XRP Ledger and Interledger projects.
In addition, Xpring is building a developer platform to support open source developers to leverage these protocols.”
