Brad Garlinghouse and Cory Johnson sat down for an Ask me anything session recently. The first part of the session is here.

Further in the session, Cory Johnson, the Chief Market Strategist explains a new concept called Basel 3: Particularly after some regulatory changes associated with something called Basel 3, banks had to have a lot of money in their balance sheet. If it was a part of sitting and waiting for a transaction to happen across borders, it no longer counted as an asset towards their reserve.

With xRapid, it enables payments into a country without being in that country. Brad says ‘that may sound crazy but it’s effectively what it is doing’. Since then, many banks, financial institutions and payment riders from around the world have started to lean towards the adaptation of xRapid.

Brad, the Founder of Ripple quoted:

“But I am optimistic if you are solving a real problem for those customers at a lower price and better outcome then your gonna continue to see many financial institutions lean in.”

Brad agreed to Cory’s statement – ‘xCurrent doesn’t require XRP to be used but xRapid does’.

Santander announcement of a consumer-facing product using xCurrent is really interesting, noted Cory. Brad doesn’t deny this fact as he summarises their partnership over the time saying:

“Santander has been one of our earliest customers and they have been a fabulous partner and all the way up to chairwomen of Santander, they have been advocates of what we are doing.”

Brad continued to state about them being more public. In this Q1, they publicly started talking more about one pay FX, a consumer-facing product allowing real-time payments across pounds to dollars; pounds to euros, etc. and vice-versa.

It originally had launched last summer in intra-Santander for their employees. They serve around 144 million customers across the globe, mentions Brad. Cory questions about few systems like the Transfer wires, Zel, PayPal or Veno which have fancy interfaces in the frontend but still with the old jalopy backend are having the deal with money moving really slow.



Brad says that the talks about innovative payment methods are happening everywhere and is constrained by everything under need. Ripple, in that matter, has always focused on methods of resetting the fundamental rails and tries to enable innovative payment experiences. They intend to change the nature of payments at the infrastructural level.

According to him, they are partly contributing to this through their xCurrent messaging, xRapid and xVia.
