Sagar Sarbhai claimed at a recent financial technology conference that xRapid has been trialed at 12 banks before launch. He said: "In 2016, we piloted 12 banks. These 12 banks are located all over the world and there is no pre-financing relationship between them. What we do is to give these banks some XRP and let them solve the problem by themselves. The result is very good." Sagar Sarbhai claimed at a recent financial technology conference that xRapid has been trialed at 12 banks before launch. He said: "In 2016, we piloted 12 banks.

In the CBT20 currency, except for DOGE (-3.73%), XTZ (-0.10%), and USDT (-0.14%), all currencies showed an increase, and the average increase is 3.73%, of which BTC increased by 1.40% and ETH increased by 6.63%. The larger ones are XRP (+18.52%), ADA (+8.96%), and EOS (+4.88%).

Although Ripple has been reported good news continuously, but didn’t benefit to the XRP price, because there is no direct relationship between XRP and Ripple, but the reason that xRapid's upcoming news can drive the price of XRP is that xRapid is the only one product of Ripple which needs to use XRP as the support. The market performance brought by this news is more favorable to illustrate the relationship between XRP and Ripple, which has been controversial for a long time.  
Anyway, after a period of market downturn, this news undoubtedly restored investors' information on the cryptocurrency market to a certain extent, especially the <a href="https://citicoins.com/ripple/markets">Ripple market</a>. I’m looking forward to xRapid's official launch next month will bring a wave of benefits to investors.
