Steiger states that regulatory issue is one of the biggest issues the company is facing, followed by the mass adoption of the digital assets among banks and fintech companies.

He explained: “When a bank or organization has more certainty around the regulatory aspects and is more positive around the risk at the time of using XRP as a digital asset, then they can turn it on without anyone even knowing.

Ripple’s ODL is not a scam – Nicolas Steiger

Commenting on whether Ripple’s ODL project is a scam or not, Steiger went thus:

“For us, we’ve wanted to use Ripple for a long time. And we see the value. We still use Swift. We now use ODL. We have the integration that we had from day one on ledger where we’re using XRP… It’s not a scam. It solves a real-world problem. It solves a real use case. A use case that I’ve been believing in for a long time.”

Ripple’s ODL was launched in October 2018, and the road map of the project states the payment solution can provide financial institutions and companies an innovative way to transfer money without having to keep money in banks around the globe.
