In his own words,
“By the end of this year, I have confidence that major banks will use xRapid as a liquidity tool, this calendar year. By the end of next year, I would certainly hope we would see in the order of magnitude of dozens.”
He made this statement on a stance of banks that are already using Ripple, those are Cuallix, Viamericas, IDT, and MercuryFX. Garlinghouse claimed that among these all, one bank would definitely employ xRapid for the purpose of settlement by year end.
On top of all, Ripple’s and r3 appeared to stand in rivalry point wherein reports claimed that the agreement notes that r3 will purchase 5 billion XRP at the price of $0.0085/unit from the subsidiary of Ripple. Nevertheless, within a short span, the parties involved in agreement cleared out on a press, stating that
“R3 HoldCo LLC, R3 LLC, Ripple Labs Inc., and XRP II, LLC announced that they have reached a settlement of all outstanding litigation between the parties. The terms of the agreement will remain confidential and both sides look forward to putting these disputes behind them.”
