Alex Holmes further states that;
“This partnership gives us a chance to put real-time meaningful value into the network and get that liquidity through the system, which I think is going to show that from a platform perspective, xRapid and XRP, as an asset is the absolute right one to use for the settlement services and it should, if done well”. He kept on adding;
“We have liquidity, but we don’t have the speed on the back-end processes. They (Ripple) have the speed, but not the liquidity. I think it’s a perfect marriage and I think it is going to be a great opportunity to show the World what we can do”.
MoneyGram is reportedly the second-largest money transfer service in the world, offering cross-border payments and foreign exchange settlement using Ripple’s product, xRapid and encourage XRP-powered settlement service. Concerning the partnership, Brad Garlingouse, CEO of Ripple earlier told that;
“This is a huge milestone in helping to transform cross-border payments and I look forward to a long-term, very strategic partnership between our companies,”
