Ripple’s client base increased by up to 50 percent this year while the use of XRP for cross-border liquidity increased by 7 percent as we are reading in the Ripple XRP news below.
The CEO of Ripple Brad Garlinghouse stated in an interview with a contributor from Forbes. In the latest announcement, Ripple said that they have surpassed 300 customers compared to the 200 which was only at the start of this year. Additionally, Ripple also claims that without providing numbers, that the company saw tenfold year-over-year growth in transactions on their payment network Ripple Net.:
California-based blockchain startup focusing on payment technologies, Ripple, has seen its client base grow 50% this year, while some 7% use XRP for cross-border liquidity.
“This year has been our strongest for Ripple yet.’’
The company also said that now the customers have started using RippleNet in more than 45 countries compared to 40 countries in January 2019. Since the startup announced the On-demand Liquidity product in 2018, XRP is used there to remove the necessity for pre-funding in cross-border payments and they made multiple partnerships with two dozen customers that are using the ODL right now such as MoneyGram, Viamericas, FlashFX, goLance and Interbank Peru. This resulted in a sevenfold increase for transactions that started using the on-demand Liquidity from the end of the Q1 until the end of October.
Ripple’s client base increased mainly because of the different options the platform has to offer. ODL initially offered payment corridors in Mexico and the Philippines and then expanded to Australia. However, Ripple announced that the upcoming payment corridor will expand to Brazil while 2020 it also plans additional corridors across the Asia-pacific countries and Europe and the Middle East.
In the last quarterly market report for the third quarter, Ripple said that ‘’Ripple customers live with ODL, including MoneyGram and others, increased by 75% last quarter and dollar volume on ODL increased more than five times from Q2 to Q3.”
Garlinghouse said that they have more than 20 customers using XRP for cross-border liquidity and he added that Ripple has more than two dozen customers with millions of dollars of flows per week. He said that also there are a number of projects that are built on the XRP ledger and even more companies will start using XPR with time.
