Ripple’s digital asset XRP has been hanging in there after the bloodbath experienced by the crypto market recently. But, compared to its main rivals, the digital asset manages to resist.
Ripple is in the process of rolling out a new version of its popular product xCurrent, version 4.0.
xCurrent is SWIFT’s primary rival
Ripple’s latest version of xCurrent is the main SWIFT rival, and it’s more closely integrated with xRapid, Ripple’s XRP-powered product.
xRapid uses the digital asset to provide on-demand liquidity in cross-border transactions. This eliminates payment processors’ need to have pre-funded bank accounts in the destination countries.
Oracle Times reported that Ripple SVP of product Asheesh Birla explained some details about xCurrent to CoinDesk:
“What this release enables you to do is that in countries where you think it’s appropriate and xRapid’s available, using your xCurrent software, you can now plug into on-demand liquidity using xRapid.”
The rollout of the latest version of xCurrent began in September and customers such as Santander, American Express and more are being transitioned to the new version.
