Ripple Powers Instant International Transfer, A Zero Fees Service For The Kuwait Finance House 


- Advertisment -

The Kuwait Finance House (KFH), one of the largest Islamic banks in the world, made an exciting announcement.

Using Ripple’s technology

The company tweeted that they are launching an instant cross-border remittance service that will use Ripple’s tech.

The zero fees service called Instant International Transfer in the tweet is currently available.

Through it, customers will have the ability to make remittance transactions in Saudi Riyal (SAR) to the beneficiaries at Al Rajhi Bank.

This significant announcement comes right after an extended trial period and basically, it marks its success.

Back in October, Dilip Rao, Ripple’s global head of infrastructure stated that the Chairman of Kuwait Finance House said that the company was working with Ripple.

KFH and Ripple tested a service to compete with SWIFT

They were testing a service that will compete directly with SWIFT.

As you all know, Ripple and SWIFT have been intensively competing, and just recently Cory Johnson addressed the subject.

Cory Johnson addressed the subject of Ripple’s aim to improve the speed of transactions and drastically lower costs of cross-border payments during the Cornell’s Entrepreneurship Summit in NYC.

He described that Ripple’s digital asset XRP allows for really fast transactions and he also brought up Ripple’s competitor SWIFT.

The present state of the art in finance for moving money across the world is based on SWIFT.

The system is outdated and flawed and what Ripple is trying to achieve via its solutions is address all the flaws featured by SWIFT.

It’s not clear whether KFH will use xCurrent or xRapid

KFH was the Arab nations’ very first banks that decided to join Ripple’s network for international remittance payments, RippleNet.

They have not disclosed by now whether they are using xCurrent or xRapid.

xCurrent is Ripple’s enterprise software solution that lets banks settle cross-border payments instantly with end-to-end tracking.

xRapid is Ripple’s XRP-powered solution that lowers costs and enables real-time cross-border payments.
