Remittance platforms that are using Ripple’s On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) are making progress with the adoption of XRP as a bridge between local fiat currencies and are also seeing their profits rise. The Finablr payment service has recently posted data about its earnings rising 22.1 percent year-on-year.
As written by City A.M., the Finablr payments service has reported earnings of $182.3 mln year-to-date (15.6 percent) and a total rise by 22.1 percent year-on-year. The company has also shared the names of companies whose partnership drove its high performance this year. Even though Ripple is not mentioned by City A.M., it was announced earlier that Finablr now runs on Ripple and utilizes its ODL (formerly known as xRapid) and XRP, providing extra liquidity for the coin.
Last month, Finablr also teamed up with the South Korean electronics behemoth Samsung to get its remittance service delivered to nearly 50 countries through Samsung’s crypto wallet embedded into its new line of smartphones.
As for ODL, it is also being successfully integrated by the global payments company MoneyGram. Recently, U.Today reported that this payments processor stated that 10 percent of its remittances to Mexico is now made via ODL. For that purpose, Ripple partnered with the largest Latin America’s exchange Bitso and now MoneyGram sends XRP directly to the venue where later on the coins are converted into the local peso. However, despite the active use of ODL and XRP, despite the 300 partnerships that Ripple made this year, the price of XRP is still below $0.30, as many in the crypto community are pointing out.
