Using Currencycloud, these banks can conduct payments in over 30 unique currencies across the globe. All they have to do is set up accounts that allow their clients to send and receive funds through international bank account numbers. What’s more, transactions don’t need to be done in USD or XRP alone, clients can perform transactions in different currencies and each currency can be secured in the wallet efficiently.
Currencycloud allows all of this to happen by creating a multi-currency wallet for each customer. Over thirty fintech firms have already joined the Currencycloud Spark project. Keep in mind that Currencycloud is licensed to operate in the European market. This gives them an edge over other multi-currency payment platforms. Also, helping its clients with a better cross-border payment infrastructure isn’t the only benefit of Currencycloud. It also allows them to make XRP transfers thanks to the partnership with Ripple.
Ripple News Today – Ripple Continues to Dump XRP
New partners of Ripple are typically awarded significant sums of XRP tokens as incentives right after their partnership is complete. They have gotten a bad reputation because of this habit as many members of the cryptocurrency community believe that these XRP incentives are bribes. This morning, they sent 75 million XRP tokens from one of their funding wallets to another. While Ripple didn’t explain the purpose of this transaction, it was most likely an incentive to one of its partners.
In our Ripple news two days ago, we talked about how Ripple’s Q2 report revealed that Ripple increased XRP sales 18 fold compared to Q3.
