Ripple为XRP支付提供融资

2020-10-12 16:47

 

Ripple公布了其信贷额度,为商业支付提供商提供流动资金,以购买XRP,用于其按需流动资金(ODL)解决方案。ODL是一种RippleNet服务,它利用XRP作为中间人进行跨境支付。汇款公司等支付提供商认为ODL很有吸引力,因为它减少了使用代理银行账户的需要,而支付提供商常常难以做到这一点。大多数使用RippleNet消息传递服务的现有银行都不使用XRP或ODL。


Ripple有充足的XRP来发放这些贷款。它目前坐拥62亿XRP,价值15.5亿美元。


Ripple在声明中表示,该解决方案已经在转账业务中进行了试验,并已开通了等候名单。支付条款可能取决于申请人,但网站称将安排一个固定的还款时间表。当资金被偿还时,更多的信贷自动提供。


Ripple并不羞于提供大量资金支持项目。它成立了一家投资公司,Xpring,在一年内投资了5亿美元。其中两笔投资分别为1亿美元和2.6亿美元。后者由Ripple的CTO联合创立,提供内容支付服务。Xpring现在已经演变成RippleX,它提供技术工具来帮助开发人员将XRP集成到应用程序中。


在最近的其他变化中,XRP现在拥有了XRP Ledger Foundation,此举旨在将Ripple从XRP的治理中分离出来。我们推测其中一个目的是为了证明Ripple不控制XRP,这是最近的诉讼的主题。


也是在上周,Ripple成为了一款无碳能源区块链。

 

Ripple unveiled its Line of Credit offering to provide commercial payment providers with working capital to buy XRP for use in its On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) solution. ODL is a RippleNet service that leverages XRP as a go-between currency to make cross border payments. Payment providers such as remittance firms find ODL attractive because it reduces the need to use correspondent bank accounts, which payment providers often struggle with. Most of the incumbent banks that use the RippleNet messaging service don’t use XRP or ODL.

Ripple has ample XRP to make these loans. It’s currently sitting on a stash of 6.2 billion XRP worth $1.55 billion.

In the announcement, Ripple said the solution has already been trialed with money transfer businesses, and it has opened a waiting list. The payment terms will likely depend on the applicant, but the website says a fixed repayment schedule will be arranged. When funds are repaid, more credit is automatically made available.

Ripple hasn’t been shy to back initiatives with significant funds. It set up an investment arm, Xpring, which spent $500 million within a year. Two of those were big layouts of $100 million into the gaming sector and $260 million into Coil, co-founded by Ripple’s CTO to provide content payments. Xpring has now morphed into RippleX, which provides technical tools to help developers integrate XRP into applications.

In other recent changes, XRP now has the XRP Ledger Foundation, a move aimed at distancing Ripple from XRP’s governance. We speculated that one of the purposes is to demonstrate that Ripple doesn’t control XRP, something which has been the subject of recent litigation.

Also last week, Ripple became a carbon free powered blockchain.
