In spite of the greatness brought towards Ripple (XRP) through partnerships with countless leading companies in the financial industry, observers and lovers of the Cryptocurrency have incessantly questioned the potency of Ripple’s token, XRP in real-world use cases due to its low adoption.
In a latest development where Ripple was featured with Wirex, to produce a Ripple wallet, XRP is now beefing up confidence in its users, crashing claims it has no viable use cases.
Earlier when the downplay against XRP was up in the air, Brad Garlinghouse, the founder and CEO of Ripple, at the Amsterdam Money 20/20 event hosted by CNBC, mentioned that soon when banks begin to use XRapid, XRP will fully come to play.
He added that with XRapid, banks will no longer need to prefund accounts to execute cross-border transactions.
