Ripple made waves in the community the other day when it’s been confirmed something that was much-awaited.
Ripple’s Swell conference turned out to bring some pretty interesting news.
Brad Garlinghouse drops great news
According to the latest reports, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse just said that one-fifth of all transactions on its global payments network RippleNet are now performed using XRP.
In a live stream event during Ripple Swell 2020, Garlinghouse dropped some updates about Ripple’s cross border payments network and ODL platform.
He said that XRP and ODL are vital for Ripple’s global expansion and the company’s success.
“In the three years that RippleNet has been live, we’ve done over two million transactions with a nominal value of over $7 billion. We have hundreds of customers. We’re seeing the greatest traction across Asia…” he said.
Ripple customers are interested in emerging markets
He continued and explained that “Now it’s also clear our customers are increasingly interested in emerging markets. This includes Latin America, Africa, and the Asia Pacific. I also think we all can agree some of these regions were largely abandoned by traditional correspondent banking over the last decade…”
Garlinghouse also pointed out the fact that “It’s also clear to me that XRP is the key behind RippleNet. Its speed, its scalability, and its low cost per transaction make it perfect for instant settlement and exchange of value. It was built for payments. It has real utility [and] that’s why it works.”
He highlighted that 20% of all transactions on RippleNet are using XRP or ODL, and they have a nominal value of about $2 billion.
Ripple’s CEO also addressed RippleNet’s customer Azimo’s use of the product ODL.
