Ripple has always made its plans to become the top player in the financial services sector known. Over the years, SWIFT has taken the lead as the provider of financial services to banks and other financial institutions across the globe. In December last year, Ripple revealed its expansion plans to Rival SWIFT. Garlinghouse said that they intend to increase the customer base by 30 to 40% before the end of 2020.
