TransferGo adopts Ripple's ODL solution.
The money transfer company TransferGo plans to adopt the Ripple liquidity on demand (ODL) payment solution, where XRP acts as an intermediate currency.
The British company is currently using the RippleNet solution to transfer money from Europe to India. According to Daumantas Dvilinskas, co-founder and CEO of TransferGo, transferring funds takes only seven minutes.
However, he believes that in 2020, "even a few minutes will be too slow." Therefore, the company seeks to integrate ODL as an alternative to pre-financing.
Dvilinskas noted that the use of RippleNet also helped reduce the cost of integrating new banking partners of payment corridors. He claims that the solution leads to a 90% reduction in cross-border transfer fees.
