It is important to know that liquidity is an essential aspect of any business operation and it is a stress-free way to accomplish the assets’ trade without altering its worth. However, liquidity can also be expressed as a simple way of transforming an asset into cash to be withdrawn. With all of these in mind, the liquidity solution that has been offered by Ripple team is a big answer to the financial market.

Furthermore, on Ripple’s blog, it was stated there that Ripple’s xRapid solution distinctively makes use of xRapid to give a high rate of liquidity.  Additionally, xRapid decreases risk and unleashes the complete capacity of payments by enhancing real-time and less costly transactions in every currency.

Funding a Nostro account before a foreign trade is actualized is hectic and also a costly method of attaining fluidity. The balance of this account is probably going be massive but stagnant, thereby making it a “tied-up” capital which may be expended in other beneficial ways.

To avoid the problems associated with Nostro accounts, a digital asset can be used as a substitute to decrease cost and enhance liquidity for different forms of transaction. Digital asset functions as a versatile currency, which helps to change any remittance into its needed money immediately and economically.

Nevertheless, any of the digital assets must be able to solve different transaction problems instantly, and XRP (Ripple) is one victorious enactment. It is also important to know that XRP, undoubtedly, is a distinct digital asset and different to Bitcoin in these powerful ways:

  • Bitcoin is not so fast when it comes to resolving a transaction because it takes 60 minutes to do so, thus, limiting its transaction to 16/second. But XRP can manage more than a thousand transaction per second that is on track with the frequency of vital payment networks like Visa.
  • XRP transactions are quick and efficient, and it also helps to protect the sender from the dangers of volatility, thus, enabling funds to be gotten without delays. On the other hand, Bitcoin is slower due to its low transaction frequency. This makes it an unsuitable digital asset for a stable of different capacity of transactions.

xRapid makes use of a unique digital asset, which is XRP, for offering liquidity at the low cost. Also, xRapid helps to lower the capital required to achieve higher liquidity, thus, assisting financial and payment companies to give their clients an unbeatable experience.

Consequently, xRapid was explained by CEO of Ripple [XRP], Brad Garlinghouse, as:

“xRapid as a digital asset was designed to have real-time liquidity. A bank like the Bank of Andy can decide to trade $1 to purchase XRP; this XRP can be transferred to an Argentinian digital asset exchange and can be used to purchase a liquid fund of an Argentinian peso within 10 seconds in another market”

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
