According to CNBC’s September 17 report, Ripple may launch a commercial version of its payment platform xRapid next month.
Sagar Sarbhai, Ripple’s head of regulatory relations in the Asia Pacific and Middle East, told CNBC that Ripple XRP is making progress in launching its product xRapid.
The xRapid product is a real-time billing platform for accelerating international payments. xRapid is built for commercial purposes and is supported by XRP tokens. It minimizes liquidity costs and makes cross-border payment transactions faster.
xPaid has been tested in 12 banks before launch
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.”
