XRP-powered xRapid Enjoys Enhanced Traction – Ripple’s Asheesh Birla Comments

Currently there are a lot of banks that are using Ripple’s xCurrent tech and it seems that they’re looking to upgrade to the company’s product that is powered by XRP, xRapid, says Ripple’s senior vice president of product management Asheesh Birla.

Birla was interviewed by the financial outlet The Banker in collaboration with Deutsche Bank.

According to him, there’s a significant number of banks that are currently considering take a step towards crypto and using xRapid in order to process cross-border transactions.

xRapid is seeing greater traction among payment providers, including Currencies Direct, Mercury FX and Viamericas, whereas the banks are not quite ready to take the plunge into the nascent cryptocurrency space.”

It seems that some banks are looking to switch to xRapid for the second phase of their projects.

We already know that Ripple developed their tech with scalability in mind.

“To deploy something for Standard Chartered, Santander or Bank of America, our solution needs to scale to hundreds of thousands of transactions per second – this was in the design from the outset,” Birla said.

For instance, it allows a bank that wants to send money to Mexico to use XRP as the immediate currency and they don’t even have to hold the crypto, which makes things really efficient.

Regarding the boost of adoption for its product, it’s also important to mention that Ripple recently added Viamericas to its list of companies that are using xRapid.

Viamericas is the largest company in the U.S. that provides cross-border payment services to 34 countries.
