Ripple News Today – Ripple has been in the news for a while now competing strongly with SWIFT to appear as a new-age standard in carrying out cross-border payments.

Speaking on the recently concluded SWELL event, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse commented that SWIFT is a “one-way messaging framework, you execute a SWIFT wire transaction and the only way you know I received it is when you send me a note saying ‘hey I sent you a wire.’” Commenting further on the subject, Garlinghouse stated that a minute error from the sender in effecting a traditional payment can cause a lot of “overhead and that does not need to happen in a world where people can use better technology.”
While comparing SWIFT to Ripple, Garlinghouse stated that SWIFT acts more like a postcard which takes some days to deliver and that Ripple is working effortlessly to improve the existing infrastructure. He went thus: “What we have done is take that very rudimentary conversation infrastructure that was built decades ago and said, let’s have a two-way messaging framework.”
Commenting on the company’s projects on the ground – xCurrent and On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) formerly known as xRapid, Garlinghouse explained that the company aims to bring in legacy institutions and bring them the chances that the internet-based technology has to offer in real-time.
He stated: “We wanted to bring banks, financial institutions, into the opportunities represented by these new technologies. And you know frankly, starting with the deep end, I will say that the deep end is going all the way into using digital assets to solve some of these problems as opposed to gradually working them into that.”
