Ripple and MoneyGram Test XRP Currency Transfers

Ripple and MoneyGram Test XRP Currency Transfers

MoneyGram will access and use XRP in their payment flows through xRapid, Ripple's on-demand liquidity product. xRapid enables real-time foreign exchange (FX) settlement through XRP, which gives financial institutions the ability to unlock liquidity and access multiple corridors with one pre-funded originating account.

Ripple claims that XRP is the most efficient digital asset for payments with transaction fees at just fractions of a penny, compared to Bitcoin fees of about $30 per transaction.

XRP is fast too. MoneyGram has shown great trust in Ripple and has stated that Ripple's average transaction time of 2 to 3 seconds is considerably lower than other major cryptocurrencies. "We're hopeful it will increase efficiency and improve services to MoneyGram's customers", said CEO Alex Holmes in a statement.

MoneyGram, like its rival Western Union has faced increasing competition from a new generation of low-priced Internet-based services like TransferWise. He stated that already Ripple is partnering with three of the top five corporations that handle cross-border payments.

Ripple, a bitcoin rival, temporarily became the second-largest cryptocurrency by market value last month when it moved past ethereum, but its price has since dropped. It reached all-time highs of over $3.50 and a market cap of over $120 billion in early January, but has since fallen more than 50%.
