MoneyGram’s Main Goal Is To Perfect Instant XRP Remittances

Ripple has been gaining a lot of interest from important names this year, as it’s been boosting its XRP ecosystem.

Various important companies are interested in the San Francisco-based company, and MoneyGram is one of them.

Optimizing the use of XRP

MoneyGram’s CEO said that the company is working in order to optimize and perfect the use of XRP as an engine for moving money across borders.

You probably know by now that MoneyGram teamed up with Ripple and began using its XRP-based payment solution ODL during the past summer.

During a new interview on First Move, Alexander Holmes said that the firm’s experience with crypto and blockchain has eventually convinced him that the tech could transform the cross-border payments industry.

“I think blockchain is an amazingly interesting technology. I think there are questions out there about what is the value and future of cryptocurrencies in that space,” Holmes began.

He continued and said, “We’re using Ripple’s cryptocurrency, for now, XRP, as a medium of exchange to move from dollars to pesos. And XRP sits in the middle. What the value of all that becomes longer term, I think, is interesting.”

Holmes also said that they are working hard on perfecting the model and facilitating the instant flow of funds, “instant money movement with the data and allow a customer in county A to get money into country B seamlessly and efficiently, I think it’s what everyone is demanding.”
