Ripple made sure to highly expand the use of its products throughout this year and the company continues to mark important achievements.
BeeTech Global uses Ripple’s cross-border messaging system
For instance, the Brazilian Payments startup BeeTech Global reveals how it’s using Ripple’s cross-border payment messaging system to pass the savings on to its customers.
The company’s chief strategy officer Alexandre C.R. Liuzzi said it’s using the tech and notes that this is designed to be faster compared to the traditional payments system SWIFT.
The main goal is to power remittances in the Euro Zone.
“With Ripple, we’ve standardized the process for integration across different rails and increased efficiency in settlement,” Liuzzi said.
Liuzzi continued and said that “We’re saving our customers more than $14 million in transaction fees. We’re talking about families who are sending money to their children studying abroad and small businesses whose main source of income comes from exports. This is huge for them.”
Testing the Ripple XRP-based ODL as well?
For a while now, there have been some rumors claiming that BeeTech is exploring Ripple’s XRP-based ODL Liquidity and these rumors have persisted for months.
The online publication the Daily Hodl made sure to highlight the fact that the company has not made any official announcement on whether they plan to test the tech or not.
