SBI to test XRP in the foreign exchange market
Japanese financial King SBI announces it is going to test XRP in the foreign exchange market. The trial round will work with cryptocurrency to ensure transactions worldwide, a financial news outlet Nikkei confirmed.
The Bank for International Settlements said the global foreign exchange market had attained $6.6 trillion per day in April 2019. The cross-border swap volumes comprise an estimated half of the foreign exchange market.
The organization and Ripple have been partners since 2016 when SBI invested in the branch in San Francisco. In 2016, the pair also released a base in Asia, so payments powered by ledger technology would be accessible to remittance transfers and financial institutions.
The company had a great third quarter with its XRP average daily volume increasing by 106% to $81 million. The organization is cooperating with Ripple’s payment message system, though it does not use XRP to fuel their settlements platform Money Tap.
The company also empowers shareholders to gather dividends in XRP and gives their gamers on e-Sports groups opportunities to get paid through digital assets.
