Now Is The Time To Choose The Second Largest Cryptocurrency, Ripple

Ripple is the second largest cryptocurrency that is currently showing great colors in the ongoing industry. Despite the crypto winter, Ripple XRP takes its stance over partnering new firms and innovating its products and services.

Swift CEO Leibbrandt And R3 Garlinghouse Will Now Work Together

Leibbrandt was discussing besides Ripple CEO, Brad Garlinghouse at the Paris Fintech Forum regarding the new integration of R3 within its new payment platform GPI.

Swift is a financial messaging platform working for major banks reveals its tie-up with R3 blockchain startup. Moreover, Gottfried Leibbrandt the CEO at Swift, recently confirms that its institution will integrate R3 platform working for GPI aka Global Payments Innovation. This is their new payments standard framework.

According to Garlinghouse, Ripple is wide open to the ways they can work with Swift. However, the company doesn’t reveal any hint about a partnership with the two in the near-term. During the moderate panel session held at the Paris Fintech Forum, Leibbrandt states:

We are announcing later today a proof-of-concept with the R3 blockchain on a trade where you can initiate a payment on the trading platform and then it goes into GPI.

On the other hand, R3 is currently leading a consortium across major financial institutions, focusing to bridge up the gap between blockchain and banking industry. As per the official site of Swift, their tie-up with R3 might see the institution hooking its GPI technology up to Corda which is its former blockchain platform.

Moreover, the companies already using Corda network at R3 can now authorize and settle their payments utilizing gateway- GPI Link. This new platform service will speed up cross-border payments within banking sectors right from end-to-end transactions tracking in real-time.

Ripple CEO, Brad Garlinghouse believes Swift to be the irrefutable leader in terms of cross-border payments, holding above 11,000 institutions that use its platform. It settles an estimated $200 billion worth across space daily.

However, the platform of Swift might prove costly and slow, which sometimes takes delays for payments to process by. Garlinghouse also mentions the weakness of this particular model to be centralized, which compete for a blockchain model comprising of the decentralization system. He also adds:

Decentralized systems I think over time are likely to win. I think that today that is not what Swift is. Swift today is a one-way messaging framework, it isn’t a liquidity provider. When we think about an internet of value, it’s a mixture of two-way messaging frameworks — moving to a real-time chatting protocol if you will — coupled with real-time liquidity.

Ripple’s Performance Is Relatively Out Of The Crowd

Previously, Ripple has seen making its waves within the payments industry, retrieving customers from Banco Santander, a Spanish bank to its messaging system, xCurrent. Currently, the system is using technology same as blockchain for transferring funds within customers in quite a few seconds.

Considering the core of the debate going on between Ripple and Swift, blockchain plays an essential role. The Ripple system depends on the tech for executing their payments, letting banks to converse in real-time through secure messages.

From the very start, the platform Swift was much hesitant in terms to embrace blockchain tech. Moreover, the company announced GPI back in 2017. Their motto was to speed up the payment process, raise transparency and reduce the costs; however, it was mainly dependent on ongoing infrastructure and cloud technology. According to Leibbrandt:

I think that the big part of Ripple’s value proposition is the cryptocurrency XRP. There we do find the banks are hesitant to convert things into a cryptocurrency right now because of the volatility in the currencies.
