This is what the Ripple and XRP community have been waiting to hear for quite a while now.
Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao just announced that the crypto exchange would be teaming up with Ripple in order to boost the XRP-powered product xRapid.
Ripple and Binance to team up
CZ said that the two companies have not yet begun to pave the way for this massive partnership, and for now, Binance will remain focused on launching the Binance Chain and its forthcoming decentralized exchange Binance DEX.
CZ explained that “We’re focused on launching more features right now, so we are working with a number of other partners. With xRapid, there’s nothing going on right now, but in the future, we’ll definitely want to add them as a partner.”
Ripple has already teamed up with crypto exchanges Bitso, Bittrex, Coins.ph and Bitstamp in order to boost liquidity for their digital asset XRP.
The process is fast and cheap
These exchanges will make it possible for financial institutions to convert local currencies to XRP and send the digital asset to another country where it will be instantly switched back to fiat.
This whole process will take only a couple of minutes tops from start to finish and the amount of time in which the fiat is XRP will only last a few seconds.
Ripple’s Cory Johnson said not too long ago that such partnerships with important crypto exchanges are vital for mass adoptions and will “allow us to provide financial institutions with the comfort and assurance that their payments will move seamlessly between different currencies.”
