SWIFT and Ripple blockchain technology are used in the financial industry to achieve cross-border remittance.

Ripple and SWIFT: Explaining The Superiority

November 2018, Garlinghouse at an interview on Bloomberg TV said SWIFT’s customers think blockchain has awesome promises.

According to Garlinghouse, nothing less than 100 SWIFT-connected banks are now using Ripple’s powerful blockchain tool devised for cross-border remittance.

He said, contrary to SWIFT’s opinion, the blockchain and digital currencies have outstanding roles to play in the banking industry.

“SWIFT said not that long ago they didn’t see blockchain as a solution to correspondent banking. We’ve got well over 100 of their customers saying they disagree.”
