Intermex to Test XRP But Won't Use RippleNet in Core Markets
In other news, Ripple partner Intermex will begin testing the viability of XRP as a bridge currency later this year. The company is building out its network into other corridors, where it would require on-demand liquidity.
Here, they “can use XRP as kind of a pivot currency to swap US dollars for pesos, 24/7. And it’s early days, but we would expect to be testing that later this year.”
However, the company that specializes in payments in the US and Latin America recently shared that it doesn’t not plan to use RippleNet in its primary corridor between the US and Mexico. CEO Bob Lisy said,
“Ripple will not be an answer for places like Mexico. We’re very proud about the relationships we have there… We have very tight relationships that strategically [set] plans and objectives with those payers. And so you won’t really see us leveraging Ripple in our core markets.”
Tony Lauro, the chief financial officer shared recently that the company is looking at Ripple for several other products.
As for RippleNet, the hub that connects financial institutions, it “will enable us to onboard new payers faster than we would if we were doing direct connections to each one,” said Lauro.
The company is likely to utilize Ripple’s payment solutions in the emerging markets, where there is less liquidity and efficiency.
