On Institutional Adoption Of Xrp- Navin Says

“There is a very significant amount of movement from High Street banks to join the network and we believe at different points in their lifecycle they will make this decision.”

In a new interview with The Asian Banker, Navin Gupta says the Brazil-based cross-border payment company BeeTech is now using Ripple Xrp for their banking transactions.

Moreover, Beeteech managed to eliminate Swift fees for all of its remittance corridors, “dropping in its own fees from $20 to $2 per transaction in the process.”

“Every one of those 200 financial institutions, of which 50% are from Asia and the Middle East, are production ready and are in the process of going live. It took us two years to acquire the first 100 customers but it took only one year to acquire the next 100. Existing customers are using us more by leveraging our multiple corridors, and the network effect is really starting to take off.”

Navin more on Ripple & Other Institutions & banks

Navin Furthermore says he’s seeing a tipping point in adoption of Ripple’s cross-border payment solutions. From last few months there is an increasing number of “progressive” banks and financial institutions jumping on board with Ripple.

Ripple now has more than 200 companies on its network, with new companies joining every week.


“The biggest cost is holding local currencies in making payout possible. Banks keep a large pre-funding amount of beneficiary currencies which translates into a higher cost of capital and depreciation risk that increases the cost per transaction.”

Moreover, as for Ripple’s xRapid, which utilizes XRP to boost liquidity, Gupta says the company’s push for increasing regulatory clarity on crypto digital assets around the world is what’s needed to bring more banks and financial institutions on board.

Navin added XRP is helping by giving new technology to international companies a new way to move money without having to hold large sums of cash in banks around the world.
