Ripple adds more large banks to RippleNet

Ripple works together with many large banks to use the blockchain system for fast foreign payments. An example of this is the National Bank of Fujairah (NBF) from the Middle East.

Other recent additions to the RippleNet are the Interbank from Peru and Vitesse from the United Kingdom. Both customers will use Ripple’s xCurrent system.

XRP use among Ripple partners remains small

Most partners only use Ripple’s ledger. Very few customers use the XRP token for transnational payments. The global money transaction company ‘MoneyGram’ does use XRP tokens to process payments.
