Santander to expand the use of Ripple's cross-border payments platform
Santander just said that it would soon expand the use of Ripple’s cross-border payments platform.
In a recent conference that has been held by the Institute of International and European Affairs, the managing director of digital investment banking at Santander, John Whelan, addressed the company’s efforts in the blockchain industry.
According to what he had to say, the company will bring its Ripple-powered payments platform called One Pay FX to all 10 of its main corridors in the near future.
“We actually have a blockchain-based international payments system that’s running on four of our corridors: Brazil, Mexico, UK, Spain. It’ll be on all 10 soon. Instant transfers at very, very tight spreads: 30 basis points,” he said.
He continued and said: “It’s a nice user experience. I use it myself. I sent money to the United States. It’s available on the same-day. Fantastic, and at a guaranteed rate.”
It also seems that XRP is not involved yet.
