XRP/USD market overview: Largest Thai bank hints at using Ripple, market reaction is muted

  • XRP/USD is currently priced at $0.379, following a slightly bullish Thursday.
  • Siam Commercial Bank (SCB) hinted that they may use the XRP tokens in the future.

XRP/USD is currently trading for $0.379. It had a slightly bullish Thursday wherein its price went up from $0.371 to $0.38. This upwards movement was probably buoyed by the news that Thailand’s largest bank, Siam Commercial Bank (SCB), hinted that they are going to be using the XRP tokens. When asked on Twitter whether they are planning to use the XRP tokens or now, SCB replied with:

“We will be using Blockchain Technology for ripple but as for XRP, you may have to wait for further announcement.”

SCB had earlier conducted a cross-border payment trial using Ripple’s technology, wherein they reduced transaction times from two days to just one minute. If they do plan on using the XRP token, then they will inevitably become one of Ripple’s most valuable partners.
